spring/summer hair colour trends 17 - mebourne hairdresser yoshiko hair with #colorfulhair by Dani Blakeley


Colourful hair was once the realm of the Counter Culture. Not any more. Over the last couple of years we have seen colourful hair grow in popularity, with every day clients.  This summer we forecast that colourful balayage, along with strong block colours shall be popular. In demand will be pastels to strong fashion colours. Pinks, purples, greens and blues shall all be in vogue. With #colorfulhair @lorealpro @yoshiko_hair we are able to offer a professional range of fashion colours. This range of colours as tested in the salon and around the globe has proven to be very long lasting. In some cases far exceeding the claimed 17 washes. Used in conjunction with #smartbond and L'Oreal Blondes we have had some great results playing with this product in our St Kilda salon.
