Spring Signature Hairstyles And Colours At Royston Blythe
Earlier this week, our Compton Creative Stylist, EmilyÂ made a striking, platinum-blonde lob her signature spring style. Â Everyone loves her new platinum-lob combo and already we have clients booking in for a similar look. Â We asked Emily at little more about her new style…..
Who was your inspiration?
A combination of Caroline Flack & Rita Ora. Â Caroline gets the lob so right and I love her effortless charm, the more textured her hair, the better the look in my opinion. Â Rita’s platinum blonde compliments her skin tone and this colour just emphasises eyes. Â 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. Â 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. Â I have a fair base already so I was in a good position. Â I will, however, Â be treating my hair to very regularÂ KÃ©rastase hair masquesÂ 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. Â L’oreal Professional Silver shampoo is great as it’s a gloss protect system, so not only will the colour stay good, Â it will also boost the shine.
How are you feeling about your Lob?
The Lob is fabulous!!!!! It’s so versatile. Â 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. Â The texture and movement just keep the style more interesting. Â I’m delighted that my hair still looks good in a low pony for times when I need to look fabÂ 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. Â I discovered the new Restistance Therapiste for damaged and over-processed hair which is perfect for me at the moment. Â 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. Â My blow-dry lasts longer and hair stays really smooth when I use this. Â I couldn’t live without Elixir Ultime or Serum Therapiste Â 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.
