Before you book yourself a free consultation and chat to our team about how we can help with hair colour or even hair extenions, we thought you might want to familiarise yourself with a few commonly used hair colour terms:



This is a look that is defined by hair that is dark at the root, and blends into a lighter shade as it reaches the ends. And if like us, you’re not always sure how to pronounce it, its om-ber.



A popular modern, more freehand technique where hair colour is painted on the surface of the hair, creating a seamless, multi-tonal blend that beautifully frames the face.


The bleach blonde shade is always going to turn heads with its clean, platinum blonde finish so if you’re looking to make a bold statement, this might just be for you.


If you’re looking to brighten your hair and lift your natural hair colour base, highlights are a great way of to do so through the creation of lightness and contrast.



This is where one colour is applied all over the head from roots to tips using permanent or semi-permanent colour.


Here we'd lift your natural base to create lightness and contrast. Highlights are paired with a tint painted in between perfectly fuse and blend the colours.
