Is crazy the new normal?

 

Want to be unique or feel like changing your look? Whether you are a colour junkie or prefer a hidden pop of colour - #COLORFULHAIR is the new hair normal.

 

Available in eight bright and brilliant intermixable shades, #COLORFULHAIR from L’Oréal Professionnel is a brand new in-salon, direct dye colour palette which offers 1,000s of bespoke and personal colourful results. Whether it is soft Pink Sorbet or Hypnotic Magenta, the possibilities are endless!

 

The colours are conditioning ammonia free direct dyes that need to be applied to a pale blonde base, and will fade from the hair with each shampoo. You use these colours directly from the tube, and do NOT mix with peroxide. There are 8 shades including a “Crystal Clear” that can be mixed together to create tailored pastel colours. The shades are: Hypnotic Magenta, Pink Sorbet, Sunset Coral, Electric, Navy Blue, Caribbean Blue and Iced Mint.

Original music by Matthew Stevens played.
