Welcome to our Hair Colour Advice page. Here you’ll find everything you need to know about colouring your hair, whether it’s for the first time or you’ve been having it done for years.

How do you know what hair colour will suit you? It’s all a question of skin tone, style and personal preference. How can you prevent your coloured hair from turning brassy?

Learn all about the variety of hair colouring techniques and effects, so that you can confidently explain to your hair colourist exactly what you want from your new look.

Be inspired to try a bold shade, learn about subtly covering greys, or simply give your current hair colour an instant boost with a few highlights, lowlights, or perhaps even a toning service. Plus, you’ll also find our expert explanations and advice when it comes to the latest hair colour trends, from denim to bronde, pastelage, foilyage and more!
