Women are well aware of the dramatically transformative powers of a fresh new hair colour. Still not convinced, fellas? Well, here are four good reasons why gents should give a new hair colour a whirl...
1. To change your look
Feel like your hair look has become a little stagnant? A simple way to alleviate boredom without actually changing your hairstyle is to simply change the colour. A new season is the perfect time to adjust your shade – you may want to experiment with lighter shades in summer or a darker hue once autumn rolls around. You may even find that your new hair colour better complements your skin tone, eye colour and overall personal style.
2. To try out the bleach trend
The ultra-lightened bleached hair look has been a popular hair colour recently both on the runway and among the celebrity set. There's no doubt that bleached hair is a statement making look, so if you're looking for high impact new hair colour, this is just the ticket! Just remember that maintaining this shade will require return visits to your colourist, particularly if your hair is naturally dark.
3. To enhance the salt and pepper effect
Ageing and grey hairs are inevitable. So rather than playing hide and seek with Mother Nature and attempting to colour over the greys, why not embrace your new grey strands by amplifying the salt and pepper effect. Try using products specifically designed for grey hair such as the L'Oréal Professionnel Série Expert Silver Shampoo as these will offset any yellowness and enhance the shine of the greys.
4. To know that you can always change it!
So you took the plunge and changed your hair colour only to decide that you're not that crazy about it. No worries – you're not stuck with it permanently! Re-colouring your hair is an option, or you can simply trim the hair shorter so that your new hue won't be around for long. And if you really hate it? Well, there's no time like the present to try out a shaved hairstyle!
