Andrew Tetley, Clairol Professional's Creative Director, says it's the season for striking reds and ashy blondes to take centre stage!
For blondes, warm, golden caramel hues are huge at the moment - as seen on Claire Dane at the 2014 SAG Awards.
Blondes can also opt for a beautiful platinum shade, similar to Tilda Swinton's nordic hue at the recent Chanel Couture show.
"Brunettes should embrace the sensibility of autumn with cooler, cappuccino browns accented by ash blonde touches" says Andrew. While ombre is still on trend, natural shades are hot for Autumn and Winter. Olivia Wilde's hair at the recent Golden Globes is a perfect example of this.
If you're after the ultimate statement colour, you can't go wrong with a fiery copper red with cinnamon highlights, or dark reds with plum or violet undertones!
On the flipside, if you don't want to completely change your hair colour but still want something different, golden highlights or lowlights will rejuvenate brunette hair; while adding some depth with a few darker strands will give blondes a whole new look.
To maintain and enrich your new colour and to ensure it stays looking vibrant, check out the new Clairol Professional Color Radiance range. Infused with extracts of passionfruit and orange peel lipids, the new range includes a shampoo, intense treatment mask and conditioning spray to keep your locks vibrant!
Start with the Color Radiance Shampoo (RRP: $16.90) and Intensive Mask (RRP: $16.90) to gently cleanse and deep condition your hair. Both of these contain Clairol Professional's exclusive Radialux Micro-Ions technology which targets damaged areas and adapts to the unique needs of your hair, leaving it looking nourished and vibrant.
You can then follow that with the Color Radiance Conditioning Spray (RRP: $16.90), a nourishing leave in treatment that can be used for immediate protection against daily wear. This amazing stuff protects your hair against harmful UV rays. When applied to towel-dried hair, this formula penetrates each strand to repair damage, protecting it from the everyday elements that cause colour to fade.
The Clairol Professional Color Radiance range is available in selected salons nationwide.
