To Dye For
We’re only a few weeks into 2019, but already Pantone’s Colour of the Year, Living Coral, has been spotted all over intsagram and transformed the tresses of a number of unlikely celebrities.
Seen on the likes of Julia Roberts, Hailey Beiber, Lucy Hale and Busy Philips, the ‘light-hearted, optimistic and playful’ golden undertoned coral hue is, dare we say it, a far more sophisticated take on millennial pink manes.
Not just for celebs, Living Coral works in the ‘real world’ too and is more wearable then one might think. Bold and empowering, yet soft and playful this shade works best on neutral and warm skin tones. However, by adding a little more pink – cooler skin-tones can get in on the act too – while a tad more orange will make Living Coral work on dark skin tones as well. What’s more this nature inspired hue enhances all eye colours, so the wearer truly stands out from the crowd.
Dip-dyed ends, balayage, all over with a modern cut, there really isn’t one way to embrace Living Coral. For those with darker hair dip-dying your ends is a great way to try Living Coral as it means you don’t have to fully bleach your hair from the roots – which your mane will ultimately thank you for. While for the blondes amongst you, it’s worth noting that coral is a clever way to switch things up this New Year, as warmer tones wash out well and don’t stain hair strands. Meaning less damage and bleaching once you’re ready for another change.
As always when dying your hair it’s even more important to ensure you use the right haircare to keep it in the best condition possible. A colour protecting shampoo like the Kerluxe Luminage Shampoo, ensures colour doesn’t fade prematurely. A deeply hydrating conditioner such as the Kerluxe Aquavol Conditioner, adds much needed moisture and protects against damage. While a nourishing mask such as the Kerluxe Caviar4 Hair Mask, seals the hair cuticle and locks in much needed fatty acids, oils and antioxidents.
