Looking for a new shade to add to your pastel palette? Whether you’re just after something temporary or you want some permanent pastel perfection we’re touting lilac and lavender as the shades of the season.

 for best results using semi-permanent pastel lilac dyes, your hair will need to be extra light blonde (so you will need to pre-lighten if necessary).

Read on for the how-to guides and don’t be shy, send us your looks - #Schwarzkopfau on Insta or post your pic on our FB page. We love to see them and you could get featured on our feed!

How To

Apply the mixture to clean, towel-dried (damp) hair and leave for a couple of minutes before rinsing. For the full step-by-step on creating a pastel lilac ombré, check out our video here.

Not after the ombre look? No problem, just follow a normal full head application with your lilac pastel shade.

As with all hair dyes/bleaches, the results and the longevity of your colour can be affected by your individual hair type and hair history. We always recommend doing a strand test before a full application to check you’re happy with the colour results

If in doubt, do contact our consumer Advice Line on 1800 022 219 (toll free) and one of our Technical advisors will be happy to discuss your individual colour needs!
