Summer Sundaes

Word on the street is that this summer’s hair colour trends are inspired by summer ice creams – sounds delicious! Dylan Brittain, International Artistic Director for Rainbow Rooms International and Schwarzkopf UK Ambassador gives us the low down on flavours.


Pink is a hue that never goes out of style and for clients who don’t want to opt for a hair colour that’s too vibrant, these muted strawberry tones are perfect this summer. Incredibly on-trend for the season and perfect for blondes who want to update their look but have a colour that will fade out beautifully. This hair colour looks best when teamed with mega shine for a more iridescent finish. Clients should use a hair mask one-twice per week to keep their hair conditioned and full of shine such as Schwarzkopf BC Bonacure Hyaluronic Moisture Kick Treatment, as well as shine spray such as Schwarzkopf Style Osis+ Sparkle Finish Shine Spray after styling for instant gloss and sparkle.

Orange Sorbet 

A statement hair colour this hue is not for the faint hearted. The beauty of this shade is how vivid it is and therefore it may require more maintenance and trips to the salon from the client to keep it looking its best and full of vibrancy. Hair may have to be pre-lightened before tinted to this beautiful hue and aftercare is extremely important. A depositing shampoo or treatment that tops up hair colour is a good idea for clients to invest in to keep hair colour looking its best in between appointments. The Schwarzkopf Kroma In Bonding Color Mask’s are one of our favourites to keep hair in optimal condition whilst recovering vibrancy and are perfect for these bold, expressive colour statement looks.

Mint Choc Chip 

These mint blue/green tones are becoming more and more popular and look great worn many different ways, whether the colour is placed all over the clients hair or via colour panels and pieces, which are a great way for clients to experiment with adding colour into their current hair colour. This is also a great colour for brunettes to experiment with, adding in via highlights or balayage to their hair for a high-fashion hair colour. With this shade it’s important to recommend clients use a colour saving shampoo and conditioner at home to keep the colour looking its best and to avoid it from fading.

We can’t wait to see some more of these ice-cream inspired hair colours throughout the summer…
