Trend Alert: Charcoal Hair

Looking for an alternative to pretty pastels and bright hair colours? We've got the solution for you: the latest hair trend - charcoal!

Delve into the darkness with this ash inspired colour, where rich black shades gradually fade into smoky grey hues.

Cherish the charcoal

What we love about this dark, sultry hair colour is the subtle edgy vibes it gives off. Go to the dark side and channel your inner charcoal queen in any situation to leave them wanting to learn more...

Choose your charcoal

Not only is it a go-anywhere hair colour, but charcoal has a surprising amount of tonal choice. Think dark-blue/black shades, hints of dusty mahogany or slithers of silvery grey. Likewise, you can also choose between colouring techniques: balayage, dip-dye, draping, ombré....the list goes on!

How to get charcoal hair

Because the balance of colours is so important in a charcoal look, professionals recommend bleaching and toning your hair first, to provide the perfect base. This also means that you could even introduce another colour into your look – perhaps a striking turquoise blue streak or a pastel peek-a-boo shade?

Keeping multi-tonal hair shiny

Whenever you colour your hair, it's important to look after it correctly with a tailored haircare treatment. The shampoo and conditioner by Serie Expert is formulated specifically for coloured hair, and cleanses without stripping away the colour - leaving hair healthy-looking and ultra-glossy. Hair oil like can also help make those different shades pop. Rub a few drops between your hands and run down the lengths and tips of your hair.
