As summer creeps closer many of your clients will want to switch things up with colour. While most will opt for lightening their hair with techniques such as balayage and babylights a few might be up for more of a drastic change, if that’s the case this colouring blocking hair how to from Salon Services and Salon Success creative teams is for you.

Whether in art, on nails or outfits, the colour blocking trend has been growing in popularity over the past year — and you’ll be glad to hear it’s increasingly being translated into hair colour techniques. This trend is about expressing your individuality and putting your creativity in the limelight.

Instead of having to choose one hue for your hair, colour blocking lets clients feature all their favourite colours in one bold and eye-catching hairstyle. The vividly-coloured stencilled patterns of this look are temporary — made using an eye-shadow palette.

Kenra Professional Metallic Collection Demi-Permanent Hair Colour — Violet Pearl rapid toner
