Summer is nearly here, and I thought it would be the perfect time to try something a little different with my hair colour. If you’ve been following my blogs for a while, you’ll know a few years ago, I underwent a pretty big hair transformation to turn my three-toned locks into an icy white tone.
Since then, I’ve changed blonde toners a few times but haven’t strayed too far from my signature blunt blonde bob. However, I took the plunge at my last appointment and decided to switch it up a little.
I first spotted the Kevin Murphy Beige Violet range when it came into the salon around a year ago. I loved the lighter end of the colour range and chatted to Senior Stylist Ellie about trying the lightest toner out first. I loved the result, so we decided to move to the next shade to deepen the result even further.
The process was similar to my previous salon visits. Roots touched up first with treatment and toner. Ellie used a slight mix of toners to create my final result. So if it takes your fancy, just ask in the salon for more details.
And this was the result…
This tone is perfectly on-trend for spring/summer, and you can keep on top of the colour with a specially mixed conditioning treatment from the salon. Alongside this, aftercare is really important for bleached hair, and I use my trusty Kevin Murphy products to keep it in the best condition possible.
My favourite products include:
REPAIR-ME.WASH – A restorative shampoo that cleanses, strengthens and repairs hair.
REPAIR-ME.RINSE – A reparative conditioner that nourishes and restores health and vibrancy.
LEAVE-IN.REPAIR – A lightweight leave-in conditioning treatment that repairs and restores fragile hair.
I also swear by RE.STORE, which is an ultra-conditioning treatment to strengthen colour treated hair. I use this once a week, and it replaces shampoo and conditioner on the day of use.
