Bold Block Colour

No half measures here! This is what you need to know before taking the bold colour plunge

Ombre, balayage and contouring are all hair colour techniques that have recently been paired with bold hair colours. However get ready to see these techniques interchanged with an old classic: block colour! Here's how to go all in with one head-turning colour.

Benefits of block color


Monotone doesn't mean monotonous. When an adventurous hair colour is applied in block form, it makes a real statement. Some of this season's hottest shades such as fiery copper, pretty pastel, punchy platinum and even sherbert blue are a knockout when applied as a block shade. L'Oréal Professionnel's best-selling INOA hair color range is perfect for bringing your bold block colour vision to life, with the range offering 100 vibrant shades. Chat to you hair colourist about which shade would best suit you.

Caring for coloured hair


Keeping your bold block coloured hair vibrant and healthy is essential – so you'll need to reassess your post-colour haircare routine. First stop? Choosing the right shampoo and conditioner to prevent colour fade and damage. We recommend the L'Oréal Professionnel Serie Expert Vitamino Color A-OX haircare collection, which will ensure your coloured locks look soft and shiny. A weekly masque, such as L'Oréal Professionnel's Mythic Oil Masque, is also recommended to help retain moisture and repair day-to-day damage.


How to style block-coloured hair


There's no doubt that a bold block colour makes a statement – and you'll need to match that pound for pound with a glossy statement making hair 'do. This season we especially love the combination of a bold colour with a blunt cut as it give the hair that covetable controlled movement. Alternatively, you could opt for subtle waves to encourage the light to play off your newly coloured lengths, creating a gorgeous tonal effect.
