To book your spring hair colour appointment call our hairdressing salon in Bury St. Edmunds on 01284 754066.

Colour melting & balayage hair colours

Balayage also known as ombré, colour melting or root stretch continues to dominate the world of hairdressing. Rich, deep brunette hair colour at the roots stretching into a lighter, brighter colour at the tips is a key look for spring. Balayage is a great way of adding sun kissed highlights – perfect for the hotter months.

Pastel hair colours

Whether you want to try a completely new colour, or just add depth and texture to your locks –  pastel hair colour may be just the ticket!  Pastel hair colour will fade over time, allowing you to reinvent your colour again and again. Choose from soft pinks, lavender blues and soft peach colours.
