DIY - Hair Colour at home…never fear...here's my how to…
A short while ago, I was invited by
to participate in their hair colour and styling platform -
, with the challenge of attempting to recreate an on-trend, copper ombre hair colour look, wait for it…by myself!
So initially, the thought of ombre colouring my own hair was a little overwhelming, but I've tried and tested a method and now I will share with you my step-by-step guide on how you can achieve this same result, in the comfort of your own home.
Before you get started, as with all ombre-colour, for best results, apply to naturally dark blonde to light blonde hair. My hair was already pre-lightened, so I'll share with you how to add your own copper twist - perfect for the cooler weather.
Cover clothes, put on gloves, read instruction leaflet and perform the allergy alert test. (should be done 48hrs prior to application). Then do strand test to preview colour. NAPRO Palette shades should be applied to dry hair.
And then 5 minutes before it's time to rinse, use the remaining colour through the ends of your hair (this blends the colour naturally)
And there you have it - simple, easy to achieve copper ombre hair. I was really surprised at how easy this look was to create and I love that I have now have the confidence and flexibility of experimenting with different colours at home (or more likely, when I'm travelling and on the go).
The question is, which colour will be next…
