INSPIRATION

Picture the contemporary city woman, living in the fast metropolitan lane. She’s time short, yet her demanding life doesn’t stop her appearance being of key importance. She yearns to continually change and so her hair colour evolves with each life moment and whim. City Lights is a dimensional approach to highlighting, giving a versatile result with the flexibility to wear the hair with either a natural, or more defined finish, depending on the desired look and how the woman chooses to style her hair, to showcase the highs and lows of her colour.
