So without further ado, find out all you need to know about changing your hair colour below from Shine Artistic Director, Alessandro Conforti – including everything from grey coverage to dramatic hair colour transformations.

Going From Brunette to Blonde

Simply put: a transformation isn’t going to happen overnight. The good news is that the expert team at Shine are here to help! If you are a brunette and wish to go blonde, there are many avenues to take, and it is a stylist’s job to determine the best processes that suits you and protect the condition of your hair. We highly recommend that you book in for a complimentary hair colour consultation, during which, we will be able to access the realistic time scale of the transformation, and will be able to give you a clearer idea of the price. 

Going From Blonde to Brunette

This is a lot easier than going from brunette to blonde, you’ll be pleased to know! Here, instead of stripping off colour pigments from hair, we are adding them back. A pre-pigmentation process is needed before applying the pre-agreed final colour. This is done in order to prepare the hair to receive the last application of colour – and for the final result to last longer and look more natural.

We always advise our clients at Shine that the INNOLUXE Aminobond complex should be added into the colour formula – as this “game changer” Complex of light weight proteins, will penetrate every hair strand and so re-enforce, strengthen and protect! Best of all? Your hair colour will last longer and look shinier. 

Maintaining coloured hair hydrated is vital as by doing so the colour will continue to look fresh and glossy. We advise to take home Davines Minu Essential shampoo and conditioner and Minu Mask to give that extra kick of lustre once a week.

Going From Brunette to Red

This is relatively easy if the brunette is a natural brunette colour. It’s definitely more time consuming if your Shine stylist is dealing with an artificial brunette colour. In this case, a light bleach bath (only hair will be bathed!) will be done in order to remove the first few layers of pigments and prepare the hair to receive the red – always adding INNOLUXE Complex inside the colour formula. Reds colours are famous for fading quickly. But with INNOLUXE, we finally find the way for the reds colours to stay longer in our hair.

The recommended home care products for anyone going from Brunette to Red are the Colour Conserve Davines Minu shampoo and conditioner and to revive the colour at home every week or so, we advise Davines Alchemich Red or Copper conditioner which has either red or copper colour pigments. Simply leave it on for 10 minutes at home, and your red/copper colour will look vibrant and shinier again!

Covering Grey Hairs at Shine

The good news is that more and more people are accepting grey or white hair – it’s just another beautiful colour after all! However, if you’re up for a hair colour refresh, adding few dark colour panels on a completely grey head can create a very sophisticated effect. Most of all, it will free you from coming every 3/4 weeks to do the little retouch. Of course, we will be still happy to dye your grey hair, if you are not yet ready for the challenge! Grey hair has the tendency of becoming a bit yellowish after a while, therefore, a great product to mantain grey hair vibrant and yellow free is the Alchemic Silver shampoo and conditioner from Davines – available to buy from our Stoke Newington salons today. Simply ask your stylist for more informaton during your next appointment.
