How to Recreate this Bright Yellow Hair Look

by akesha / last updated August 9, 2019

This bright yellow look is one for your clients that want to stand out from the crowd. “For clients who don’t want to blend in, help them make an impact with this bold and beautiful look,” says Errol Douglas who created this look for Salon Services. “With a clean and vibrant yellow colour palette with subtle dark undertones — this trend is all about fluidity and inclusivity.”

Here’s how to recreate the look


Pre-lighten the hair to a light blonde to achieve this level of colour vibrancy (technicians used XP Bleach on Elle)

Leave to develop for 30 minutes and then wash.

Next, apply Celeb Luxury Viral Extreme Yellow through the hair — applying at the washbasin. Leave to process for 30 minutes.


Work in some basic layers all around, working your way to the nape of the neck

Leaving the top quite heavy and choppy, re-apply the colour again to deepen and personalise the shade further.

Next, use Maria Nila moulding paste to add texture to the layers.

To finish, don’t blow-dry or brush through as the overall look should be textured. Instead, use your fingers to bring this vibrant and eye-catching look to life.

Tip: The colour is very bright, so be very careful not to use a dark gel — instead, go for a clear option as a dark or coloured product could stain the hair.
