How do you max your colour with the cut you have? Or cut your hair with colour in mind? There are a few simple rules to follow when it comes to placing cut and colour together… watch and learn from the team at Fruition Hair Salon in Wilston, Brisbane.
The main thing to consider is that a cut changes where strands of hair fall… Don’t focus on your colour and then get it cut it all off straight away: you will just be undoing all your hairdresser’s good work! Make sure that you work with the cut you have when you walk into the salon” offers Craig Smith, Australian Hairdresser of the Year Finalist and owner/director of Fruition Hair Salon in Wilston, Brisbane
QLD Hairdresser of the Year 2016 and Salon Manager Amanda Menz says, ”A face-framing, soft side-swept fringe with the addition of a few highlights accentuates the eyes and cheekbones and complements a wide variety of hair textures and face shapes.
Strong blonde lights in the hair work much better with a wavy, textured style rather than a poker straight, ‘Rachel in FRIENDS’ where they look more like tiger stripes: so not cool!”
Fruition Brisbane Hairdresser Shantelle Neate talks shapes: “A blunt fringe looks undeniably trendy and bold—perfect for you creative hipsters! But bear in mind a blunt fringe looks so much more dramatic and intense with dark hair.
A wavy bob, as sported by Alexa Chung, Jennifer Lawrence, Lily Collins, Emma Stone, Taylor Swift… actually by pretty much every celeb out there – is one of the most forgiving styles when it comes to colour. Block colours look cool, highlights are, well, highlighted and ombre comes into its own! You just can’t go wrong!”
Fruition’s Brisbane Hair Salon Director Craig Smith says: ‘Use highlight and shadow effects to work with different face shapes: to elongate a round or square face, ask to lighten the top of the hair and the ends using a free hand technique and ask for a darker shade to create shadow and depth at the sides. The lightness at the top of the head and shading around the sides will make the face shape appear slimmer’.
Cara Robinson of Fruition Hair Salon in Wilston, Brisbane adds, ”In order to soften the shape of the chin on a heart-shaped face, ask for a darker colour to the crown and lighter pieces through the mid-lengths and ends to lighten under the jawline. The section around the hairline is also lightened to highlight the face.”
