Adding colour to your hair with highlights

Added either in foils or applied directly onto the hair in a freehand technique, highlights offers bespoke hair colouring with the placement of foils being exactly where you want it. 

Hair glossing treatments

Nervous about having your hair colour but fed up of having dull, drab locks? This colouring technique can be applied as a clear gloss so will not change your hair colour. Colour glosses are a really good way to add shine to your hair, especially if you have a balayage or ombre.

Toners are only temporary and need to be topped up regularly if you want to keep your blonde looking ashy and cool.
