Wella on #CWTV20

Joining again at Colour World, Wella Professionals is a big hitter offering the best colour possible. Working with the most high-achieving colourists and hairdressers (Rob Eaton, current British Hairdresser of the Year leads the pack!)… the creativity possible with Wella colour is infinite.

To whet your appetite, here’s a look at the recent trend collection created by Zoë Irwin to give you a taste of Wella’s colourtastic products and what they can do. Enjoy!


Zoë explains the trend in this way: “Summer is a big time for blondes and when Wella Professionals asked me to create a glazing palette for my favourite product Illumina Color, it was a dream come true. I spent days mixing shades, including four new cool blonde shades, and coming up with new ones for my glazing palette.
“Glazing or toning as it is also known, is such a huge part of my work with blondes and lightened hair. All of my clients have two things – Wellaplex to strengthen their hair, and a glazing service with Illumina Color. There’s no way anyone would leave the salon without a glaze being applied. While my palm painting technique (which is the traditional French way to Balayage) is beautiful and my clients often say they love their hair already once I’ve finished this step in their service, they can’t believe the difference to their hair once the glaze is applied.
“Glazing is the way to make lightened hair look glossier, chic and helps to illuminate it, especially if you use a product like Illumina Color, which creates sheer, super natural hair colour with incredible shine and luminosity.
“I think glazing is the biggest story in colour right now because coupled with the trend for balayage, glazing creates a personalised, bespoke result. You can play with your colour, changing it up or down, depending on the season or your mood.”


I colour hair to make it look as natural as possible. I use multiple tones in the hair that blend seamlessly into one another. A girl’s root may be 5 or 6 shades darker than her ends, but because of the blending it becomes completely natural.”

1) Create an overall colour as base

2) Lighten the hair using Palm Painting technique

3) Apply glazes to give the hair warm illumination
