The leaves may soon turn to a deep, autumnal russet, but the trend for hair colour is a lighter shade of ginger. “We see a lot of people going towards a natural shade of red, as if they were actually born with the hair colour. Think of the colour of a highlight–that’s a shade of red that looks very believable,” says Hayden. Try a dry shampoo on alternating days to keep your colour blazing and visit your stylist for a glaze treatment when you notice your shade start to fade.

“For brunettes, we’re doing tone-on-tone colour. We’re mixing a couple of bands of colour that are closer together in shade. It still looks like a solid colour, but there is dimension. You’ll see in photos of celebrities sometimes what we call a ‘shine mine’ where there appears to be a band of reflection around where the head rounds because it just looks so healthy.”

“We’re seeing warmer blondes across the board and a move away from that very light, ashy type of colour. They’re sometimes a little bit lighter at the ends. A 15-year-old is going for that striking ombre look where her roots are brown and her ends are blonde, but the more mature version is very, very subtle. The ends are just slightly lighter than the rest of the hair. Most people won’t even notice it–but you will.”
