4 WAYS TO ADD PASTELS TO YOUR HAIR COLOUR SERVICES THIS SPRING

Bring out your true colour artistry with these on-trend shades. 

Pastel hair colours for Spring? Groundbreaking…

Via Giphy

We are always excited to see those soft hues of blush pinks, pale blues, and pistachio greens come back around each Spring, but pastel shades aren’t just for Easter! Our TIGI colour experts give their tips for what’s trending this season through to Summer and share their favourite formulations to inspire your next colour service.

So, dive into the chalk box for your colour inspiration this Spring and start experimenting with finger painting because fun pastel shades are where hair artistry begins.

Pick your pastel trend.

First, there is a trend for a fresh pastel palette with shades so soft they are almost chalky, with a powder-like saturation that has a dreamy, childlike mood.

The second trend to jump on is about play. We’re talking finger-painting! Any talented colourist will find exploration with colours in this way sheer joy. If hair is your artist’s canvas, then you can create colours with an artisan feel, working with the natural fall and texture of the hair. The possibilities are limitless!

Pastels are definitely about hope and joy, expressed through softness and delicacy.

Utilising the natural texture of hair, colours include Pale Straw, Lemon and Buttercup, as well as Iridescent Sand and Honey. Going even more pallid, choose from Lily White, Linen White, and Marble White. Of course, Pink has been popular for over a year but now it gets a refresh with tones of Champagne Rose and Rosewater, as well as more purple hues such as Heather, Parma Violet and Metallic Lavender. Or take your clients off to tropical destinations with aqua tones such as Lagoon and Dusty Mint.

Get inspired!
