2010 has been no stranger to fashion fads – harem pants, underwear-as-outerwear and crop tops to name a few – but one trend that is here to stay is ravishing red hair! Reds and plums have been THE hair colour tones for 2010, and they show no sign of losing their popularity just yet! These shades have been the most popular colours with home hair dye users all year, with LIVE Color XXL being the number one for red shades in the market.
To achieve a vibrant reddy-purple shade, colouristas should reach for LIVE Color XXL’s brand new Plum Perfection. This permanent colour is packed with pomegranate and vitamin C to nourish your hair as the dye develops, resulting in extra intense, long-lasting and vibrant colour.
If you’re looking to turn heads with a truly intense red shade, then why not try LIVE Color XXL in Red Passion, Hypnotic Red, or Real Red? Looking to heat things up? Then try the gorgeous Hot Reds collection, available in Hot Cinnamon, Cool Scarlet and Dark Spice.
The key to keeping your new colour looking healthy is to ensure that your hair is nourished and properly cared for. Nobody wants dull, dry locks so use shampoo and conditioners designed specifically for coloured hair, and rinse with cool water to seal the cuticles. Use a heat protecting spray before blow-drying and you’ll soon be dazzling everyone with your super shiny tresses!
While fire-engine reds and coppery tones dominated throughout spring and summer, deeper reds and purple hues are the perfect tones for winter. These shades are ideal if you want to go darker without compromising on richness and warmth. We’re sure that we’ll see more and more people rocking this look before the year is up!
