Tim Scott-Wright, creative director at Lisa Shepherd Salons says that the key to great hair colour this spring/summer is to keep it simple.

“This season, colour should be about making the most of what you’ve got; creating gorgeous shades that simply make hair gleam.

“The colour doesn’t need to overly complicated, the rights tones placed correctly will give the most beautiful results.”

Tim, who used block colour in his latest collection (pictured), says “I wanted to show that, contrary to popular belief, block colour can have dramatic twists and interpretations to keep the look commercially stunning yet technically intricate. 

“The colours and technique I have used for this collection give an internal glow whilst preventing the colour from looking too ‘all over’.”

“Block colours with different levels of light within the hair working on the same tone give stunning results.

“When you’re a blonde, there are many different ways to play with your color without completing changing your base.  This spring, blondes will add more butterscotch highlights for

“For my brunette clients, I’m adding a few highlights and making the base a lighter shade.

 with caramel and honey highlights to brighten up the shade.”


“It’s all about being a BOLD redhead this spring!  The winter is over and it’s time to brighten it up and play with your hair colour.  Redheads will go lighter and brighter without being too dramatic… think Rose McGowan, she has a strawberry red shade with gold highlights on top to really make her color pop!”
