Hair Colour For Commitment-Phobes

by Hair Romance

Love to switch up your hair colour but can’t handle the commitment? Semi permanent colour is your ticket to hair fun.

I heard a great colour description from Schwarzkopf stylist Dee Parker who said, “Do you want your colour to shout, speak or whisper?”. Choose bold brights to ‘shout’, ombre tones to ‘speak’ and soft pastels to ‘whisper’. However, you want your hair to talk, you can change the conversation as quickly as you want now with some great non-permanent colour solutions.

Play around with your hair safe in the knowledge that you don’t need to commit. These colours will only last up to 8 washes

Pastel Perfection

Who hasn’t been swooning over Nicole Richie’s pastel lilac hair? Now, for natural brunette Nic, this took a loooong time to achieve. You have to lighten your hair first so that you have a pale base for the pastel colour to go over.

But if you’re a natural blonde, this trend is perfect for you and doesn’t require much commitment. You can simply use Schwarzkopf Live Ultra Brights mixed with conditioner to soften the colour. You’ll have pastel perfection in just a few minutes.

Ombre Is Not Dead

It’s time to turn your brassy balayage into something cooler.

Use your pre-lightened ends to your advantage with semi-permanent colours, like this look created with Schwarzkopf Live Ultra Brights in Magnetic Purple. 

Brighten Up

Use colour to stand out from the crowd. Commitment-phobes will love that these vibrant colours that wash out, letting you try the pastel trend along the way before they fade out completely.

Lighter hair will get the brightest results, or try colouring some hair extensions to clip in your colour when you want.

Blondes, Brunettes, & Redheads

Amp up your natural colour with a gloss. Schwarzkopf Live Colour has 12 more natural shades that will add shine and depth to your natural hair colour.

  • Blondes – The classic Silver Toner will rid your hair of any brassy tones or try Strawberry Platinum for the perfect ice-blonde shade.
  • Brunettes – Choose Live Colour in Dark Brown to add a brilliant gloss to your dark hair.
  • Redheads – Revive your naturally red hair with Red Embers or deepen it with the best-selling Glam Red.
