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.

choosing the right hair colour for your skin tone - stkilda hairdresser yoshiko hair by Dani Blakeley

Finding the right hair colour for your skin tone, can take years off your age.

 People suit cool or warm tones. At Yoshiko we are able to determine which hair colour will suit you. People that suit cool tones have blue/pink skin undertones. While warm complexions have gold/yellow skin undertones.

If you are a cool tone then the following hair colours shall suit you:
Brunettes will look great with cool chocolate, violet brown, mocha brown and ash brown.
Blondes will look great with ash blonde, platinum and champagne.
Reds will look great with berry red, mahogany and plum.

If you are a warm tone then the following hair colours shall suit you:
Brunettes will look great with rich warm chocolates, copper brown and caramel.
Blondes will look great with golden blonde, honey blonde and strawberry blonde.
Reds will look great with copper, auburn and titian.

You can wear colour that isn't in your tone, but bear in mind you need to wear more makeup. Without make up will mean that you look tired when you have the wrong hair colour. Yet if you are young and like strong trend colours, just enjoy.
