When you think of the typical French woman, the key word is effortless. From that ultra-chic LBD that she just casually threw on this morning, to the glowing complexion (just back from Saint Tropez or a weekend in the Alps), Parisian chic is all about nonchalant glamour. So, of course, when it comes to hair colour, the
What is nude hair colour?
Have you heard of barely-there, aka "no make-up", make-up? It's when your make-up does such a good job that it looks as if you aren't wearing any; as if you woke up looking flawless. Nude hair colour is the equivalent: a hair colour that looks so natural it's as if you were born with it. It does this thanks to its neutral hues, which can vary depending on your skin tone and hair. The aim is to elicit genuine surprise when you tell people you colour your hair!
Parisian Nudes by L'Oréal Professionnel
L'Oréal Professionnel is releasing a new collection of multi-tonal hair colour shades called Parisian Nudes, inspired by effortless French beauty and the nude, natural-looking hair colour trend. The range is fronted by it-girl and London socialite Alexa Chung, who proves that you don't have to be French to ooze Parisian style!
How to style nude hair colour
Because nude hair colour is such a natural look, it makes sense to opt for styles that are also cool and casual, but with a bit of an edge to them. A blunt long bob, for example, shows off the different tones to your hair, and is one of the most on-trend hairstyles of the moment.
For hair to stay silky and shiny with natural volume, opt for a tailored haircare routine using a shampoo, conditioner and weekly mask from the Pro Fiber collection, which offers a variety of formulae depending on your hair's precise needs.
Smartbond is also another option for protecting your hair. It's a unique system that protects and strengthens bonds during technical services (such as lightening and hair colour), specifically designed for L'Oréal Professionnel hairdressers.
