Victoria is one of our New Generation of stylists at Windle London, who has broken through from her training at the salon to become one of our busiest stylists.
Victoria’s Hair Colour Before…
Victoria spends all day helping other people to look good with their hair, but suddenly she also realised that she needed a bit of hair change herself. She decided to approach Jesus our newly qualified colourist about changing her hair, which she wanted to achieve by changing the colour instead of having a new haircut.
So Jesus set to work on changing Victoria’s colour. I asked him what his approach was to creating the colour.
Jesus: “Victoria’s hair colour naturally is a light to medium brown with some warm tones running through it. We decided to create a different kind of blonde on her. She didn’t want the regular, obvious blonde that people tend to go for (creamy, warm and golden), she wanted something that would make her hair still look healthy, as she”d never coloured her hair before, and expensive but a little different. ”
So Jesus set about mixing a colour that had cooler tones to it, with the use of violet, purple and grey hues. Knowing that Vicki’s hair had some warmth in it naturally, he wanted to counteract this by using opposite tones.
Jesus “So what we’ve achieved is a beautiful light honey blonde, with subtle undertones of lilac when the sun hits it”
Victoria’s loving the change and would highly recommend to switch your colour up should you want a change without having a drastic haircut.
Next month, we’ll be giving out the new Windle London Summer Colour suggestions from our head colourist Takashi, so be sure to visit the blog over the coming weeks for our latest colour suggestions.
