We’re delighted to introduce our newest blogger and hairdresser extraordinaire to the Sugahfix Gals! Each month, Karen Devlin from the multi award winning Rogue Hair Salon in Belfast, who boasts a list of amazing qualifications and a wealth of experience, will be keeping all you lovely ladies up to date with the latest hair do’s and don’ts. This month she’s talking candy floss and pastels colours… are you brave enough?
Pastels have been around for a good few seasons now and this fabulous crave is showing no signs of letting up, in fact, pink, lilac and blue hair is everywhere we turn, and it’s not just uber trendy teens and the blue rinse brigade pulling off this gorgeous look, woman of all ages are opting for the fun shades and wearing them oh so very well!
More mature ladies are really embracing their natural white hair which is the ideal base for adding a pastel tone as the hair doesn’t need stripped of colour first, so bear that in mind if you are planning on going pink like Dannii Minogue and you have dark hair, this will be a long and potentially very expensive process, it’s not going to happen in one sitting! Blonde is ideal and the paler your hair tone the more vibrant your pastel shade can be, there are so many gorgeous colours to choose from which are ideal for the summer months ahead, light candy floss pinks, lovely lavenders, iced mint or even ocean blues.
Pastels can look really ethereal and angelic and we can make them as soft or as intense as you like, but we’ll always take into consideration a client’s skin tone, for example, if a client has cool undertones in the skin we generally suggest cool or neautral tones for the hair, and vice versa, it balances it all out and will make sure you don’t look washed out. These colours are semi-permanent so you can be adventurous safe in the knowledge that you can always try a different one!
I really love this look and I would urge anyone, no matter what their age to give it a go, it’s a great way to totally overhaul your look for an up-coming event or a holiday and it’s not forever, so go on live a little and have some fun!
