Colour me red, copper or cinnamon…

Expert-approved tips for the perfect colour-ready hair.

Autumn brings with it some beautiful shades of reds and browns. It feels as though golden-hour (you know, that perfect moment shortly after sunrise or before sunset) is given an extra few hours. All in all, autumn is a (visually) warm season…(we said visually!). 

What’s more, if you’re someone naturally blessed with autumnal-coloured hair (we’re talking to all of you red tones out there) then autumn just feels like your time to shine!

However, if you’re inspired by the array of warm tones that surround you but you’re just not as blessed as your naturally red-headed friends then dying your hair may feel a bit daunting. Besides the usual, ‘will it suit me?’, there’s also the, ‘what if my hair isn’t healthy enough?’.

Brent Barlow, of Klub Salon, says: "It’s all about using the right products for your hair type and texture. That's why it’s very important to speak to your stylist who will be able to recommend the correct KeraStraight products for you. KeraStraight Styling products can be cocktailed together so are great when prescribing per client." 

There’s nothing like that feeling of a new colour, you feel like you’ve completely overhauled your look – like you’re a new you. And if your Pinterest board is awash with reds, coppers and cinnamons then get inline as they’re the most coveted hair colours this season. We guess cinnamon is the new ginger…but don’t let Geri know.  

But (and we’re sorry to say) red can be one of the hardest colours to maintain, step aside platinum blonde. So, we spoke to Louise Foard at Trevor Sorbie, for her expert advice: “If you are looking to maintain the condition of your hair or preparing your hair for a colour change then KeraStraight Intense Boost is the perfect solution. By consulting with your stylist you can decide on a treatment that is tailored to you. Whether your hair is lacking in moisture or needs strengthening the Intense Boost will leave your hair feeling youthful and nourished, and is a perfect way to keep your colour looking its best for longer.”

Longer lasting hair colour is the goal when it comes to red tones, you want to be giving everyone from Christina Hendricks to Emma Stone a run for their money.

So, one last expert tip to ensure you get the most from your not-so-natural but looks oh-so-natural hair: “My top tip on maintaining the health of your hair is always about using top quality products, you wouldn’t buy a BMW and put it through a boil wash?! If you want long lasting colour and beautiful looking hair, products are officially where it’s at, take KeraStraight for example; all the products can be combined to create your ultimate go to hair and style,” says Georgia Bell of Society by Georgia Bell.

It sounds like your hair will reflect that autumnal-glow with the help of some great products. So, why wait? Go, spice-up your…hair.
