Simply scrumptious

Simply scrumptious is the way to regard the colour palette for the AW21, as in good enough to eat! So say the creatives at Rainbow Room International, the celebrated salon group in Scotland. Follow their recipes to be Simply Scrumptious-

Rainbow Room International

Suzie McGill is owner of Rainbow Room International Uddingston salon, the international artistic director for the group, and a Schwarzkopf UK ambassador. With bags of experience in salon-popular colour trends, she’s got the following advice.


Simply Scrumptious
Pumpkin Orange

Last year pumpkin spice was one of the biggest colour trends for the season, incorporating shades of copper or red with brunette tones or through balayage for a more low-maintenance hair shade. This season, we see client’s being a lot more adventurous and opting for a vivid orange hue all over. Teamed with a short crop, this hairstyle is a great choice for clients who want to stand out from the crowd this season and be experimental with their hair.

Chestnut praline

Think chocolate praline with a subtle tint of red to give the hair colour warmth. This is a truly beautiful tone for the season, which looks incredibly natural but also gives the hair life and shine and flattering the complexion. This is a great choice for clients who don’t want to go too bold with their hair colour, but still want to inject some fun and warmth into it for the new season.

Cinnamon spice

The ultimate autumn shade! This hue combines a medium brown base with undertones of red. The red/copper tones can be as bold or as subtle as the client desires but are a necessity to give the medium brown a touch of spice and dimension. These red tones can also be incorporated into blonde hair to tone it down and give it warmth and a golden glow for the season.

Toffee-apple red

The most delicious red. With this shade it’s all about the vibrancy and mega shine that the red provides to the hair. This is such an intense hue but looks fantastic on all skin tones, particularly those with lighter skin tones, flattering the complexion and allowing the facial features to really pop. The hair may need pre-lightened to achieve a brighter red hue like this and clients will also need to consider their lifestyle when choosing this colour and the hair care their hair will need to keep the shade looking its very best between appointments with optimum shine
