There are many things we love about spring; lighter evenings for al fresco dinners, warmer temperatures for daytime strolls, the chance to finally place our winter woolies firmly to the back of our wardrobes and, perhaps most important of all, the opportunity to up our hair game with an exciting, seasonal refresh.
While we like to think we our finger on the fashion pulse, we figured it best to leave this one to the experts. Here, we hand the reigns over to Servilles Newmarket stylist Kylie Dyers to share her favourite tones for spring.
1. Lighten Up
Not overly groundbreaking, but a seasonal favourite for a reason, it’s lighter hair that goes with warm weather and sunnier skies like nothing else. Those who aren’t ready to take the full plunge into the colour realm should opt for a subtle kiss of lightness instead, “It’s the perfect way to begin your journey into the big world of colour” Kylie explains, “Adding subtle hints of lightness that remain within the same tone as your natural hair will create the same effect as the sun would.” An added bonus? This colouring also creates a natural lived in texture, perfect for those of us who prefer a low maintenance look.
2. A Pop Of Colour
There’s nothing quite like a vivid pop of colour to truly shake off winter’s dullness, and what’s more sublimely vivid than a shimmering copper? Kylie suggests you take cues from the rising temperatures and treat your lid to a fiery overhaul, “this is a great way to liven up your look,” she explains, “vibrant copper hues not only add a punch of richness to your hair, but it can also dramatically enhance the radiance of your skin tone.” A bold move maybe, but we’re down to try anything that leaves us with luscious locks and radiant skin.
3. Creamy Vanilla Blonde
For those who have been itching to take the blonde plunge for a while, apparently, there’s no better time than now. But bear in mind this season it’s all about brighter, creamier and more natural blonde shades as opposed to ashy tones, “this organic colour is ideal for those who want to try something new with blonde, but don’t want a dramatic change,” explains Kylie. To keep more of the natural look, she recommends adding a shadow at the root, “this will create a softer look while still diminishing any visible signs of harsh regrowth.”
4. Sun Kissed Bronze
Unlike the subtle aspects of the ‘Lighten Up trend’ (above), this sun-kissed take uses the intentional placement of lightness to create impact instead. Cool, caramel blondes intertwined with rich browns create a beautifully balanced bronze that serves as an ultra-radiating look, “it’s wholly versatile, perfect for blondes who want to go a little darker or brunettes who want to go lighter,” she advises.
No matter your hue of choice, it’s important to keep your hair in good health in order to fully maintain the colour, especially considering the beating it has taken during the winter months. Kylie’s treatment of choice? “Davines’ The Circle Chronicles treatments provide the perfect protection for whatever spring hue you choose, it creates an extraordinary shine while adding express hydration, repairing the ends, and adding energy and volume.” There you have it folks, an inside secret worth spilling.
