#SelfieColour – The Art Of Personalising Your Hair Colour

Want your hair colour to be as unique as you are? Then let the professionals adapt colour and technique to bring out your best features and complement your complexion. The question is, what's your #selfiecolour?

Strobing @veronicaferraro

Strobing technique is all about using colour to highlight the parts of your complexion you like while also deflecting and minimizing the areas you don't like. The way it does this is by playing up the areas of the face where the light would naturally hit. Here blogger Veronica Ferraro shows how strobing can perfectly complement a caramel blonde tone. Her strobed locks were created using multiple shades of L'Oréal Professionnel DIA Richesse for a uniquely personalised look.

Bronzer @ludivineoff

Bronzer is set to be big this season – and not just when it's dusted across your forehead and cheeks! In the hair colouring realm, a bronzer approach is all about applying super subtle streaks over a rich chocolate shade to give brunette locks warmth and body. The beauty of this look is its longevity. The seamless colour blend means that over time any fading will be natural and there's no visible roots.

Draping @vivianhoorn

Draping is the makeup world's response to over-contouring and is all about using subtle "drapes" of colour. Translated into the hair colouring realm, this equates to a move towards natural-looking shades that have the slightest hint of colour - just enough to give body and warmth. When applied in diagonal sweeps, the colour looks 100% natural while still projecting depth. Remember, less is more for 2017.

Colour Glow @mariapombo

It's a myth that you need to completely overhaul your colour in order to see a striking change in the appearance of your hair. As we see here with Vlogger Maria Pombo, simply introducing an oil like the L'Oréal Professionnel Mythic Oil Nourishing Oil into your haircare routine can do wonders for your existing shade. When applied over a period of time, your hue will emanate a radiant shine.

Soft Contouring @xeniaoverdose

Many of us are well versed in the face altering potential of make-up contouring techniques. But did you know that hair contouring can have the same effect? By applying colour to certain sections of your hair, your colourist can draw attention to the features and shape of your face. The way it works is that bright tones are used to give volume to certain areas, while darker shades are added to create the impression of depth and contrast. The end result is a colour that flatters your face shape – no make-up necessary!
