You're sold on rosé, lilac and silver hair colours – but what do you do next? Head to the salon where your favourite colourist will bring your rosé, lilac and silver hair colour fantasies to life! Here's how it's done...
Bleach First, Colour Later
In order for your pastel shade to really pop, your colour transformation will begin by having your hair bleached – yes, even if you're a blonde! If you have really dark hair, this bleaching process may require a few visits to the salon to lighten the hair gradually. During the bleaching phase, it's a good idea to speak to your colourist about in-salon services that will protect your locks as this will help your hair to feel strong and look shiny afterwards.
Creating The Perfect Shade
Once your hair is bleached to perfection, it's time for the fun part: the application of your colour! For a rosé shade, your colorist will dilute a few drops of red hair dye in with some conditioner and then apply it all over your mane, like a mask. For a lilac shade, the process is similar, except involves using a dark purple dye. From there, the colour will sit on your hair for just a few minutes, before being rinsed it out.
For silver hair, the key is to determine how light or dark you want the colour. Bring a picture with you of the exact silver shade you're after. Your colourist will then use this as a guide to select a colour match.
In order to protect your freshly coloured rosé, lilac and silver locks, it's important to invest in a professional salon quality shampoo and conditioner. The Vitamino Color line from L'Oréal Professionnel is great for pastel shades, while the L'Oréal Professionnel Silver Shampoo will enhance your silver colour and prevent it from turning brassy.
