Spring Signature Hairstyles And Colours At Royston Blythe
Earlier this week, our Compton Creative Stylist, Emily made a striking, platinum-blonde lob her signature spring style. Everyone loves her new platinum-lob combo and already we have clients booking in for a similar look. We asked Emily at little more about her new style…..
Who was your inspiration?
A combination of Caroline Flack & Rita Ora. Caroline gets the lob so right and I love her effortless charm, the more textured her hair, the better the look in my opinion. Rita’s platinum blonde compliments her skin tone and this colour just emphasises eyes. The colour & cut combined were exactly what I wanted.
Your hair’s looking a lot lighter, how does the condition feel?
At Royston Blythe we are lucky enough to work with amazing colourists and the very best products. Olaplex treatment was involved in the lightening of my colour which meant that I was able to go a lot lighter with out too much damage. I have a fair base already so I was in a good position. I will, however, be treating my hair to very regular Kérastase hair masques to build up the condition and strength.
How will you keep your platinum such a cool tone?
A silver shampoo is a must and to keep my hair this light I will probably have to use it every time I shampoo. L’oreal Professional Silver shampoo is great as it’s a gloss protect system, so not only will the colour stay good, it will also boost the shine.
How are you feeling about your Lob?
The Lob is fabulous!!!!! It’s so versatile. I love my hair to look effortless but still glamourous and my new style has been cut perfectly so that I can leave it to dry naturally and it will fall into place. The texture and movement just keep the style more interesting. I’m delighted that my hair still looks good in a low pony for times when I need to look fab in a hurry or when I’m at the gym and need to keep my hair off my face.
I’ve also been playing around with my parting and love a more dramatic side part to add an element of glamour for nights out.
Which hair products couldn’t you live without?
I’m in love with Kerastase products…..they just work for me. I discovered the new Restistance Therapiste for damaged and over-processed hair which is perfect for me at the moment. I use the shampoo with the Masque Therapiste every time I wash my hair.
I also use Elixir Ultime before blow-drying for softness and shine. My blow-dry lasts longer and hair stays really smooth when I use this. I couldn’t live without Elixir Ultime or Serum Therapiste which I spritz over my hair before using heat like curling tongs or straightening irons – its amazing because it protects the hair up to 230 degrees where as almost every other heat protecter covers up to 180 degrees.
