The Money Piece

The ‘money piece’ involves the front two strands of your hair being coloured a different shade than the rest of your hair. The Money Piece is also known as face-framing highlights and two tone colour and works brilliantly with traditional balayage looks. 

At our Basingstoke & Woking hairdressing salons, we can create the money piece in bold fashion shades or a light blonde tone – whatever hair colour you would like, just ask! We offer complimentary hair colour consultations where we will discuss what you’re after, assess the condition of your hair and plan your gorgeous new look.

This ’80s music staple has charged back with a remarkable new look thanks to trendsetting celebrities, stylists and influencers. This look used to only be spotted at rock concerts and monster truck rallies but has now become extremely popular for its cool design. Surprisingly, the mullet complements many female face shapes by flattering and accentuating natural features.

Colour Melt Hair

As the lighter, brighter months arrive, we predict our clients asking will ask to go blonder to mimic that sun-kissed look. Colour melt hair is where your root colour is melted into a lighter, brighter hue towards the tips to give a seamless blend of colour. The results are stunning and require less maintenance than traditional balayage trends.

Colour melt hair is also known as reverse balayage, root smudge and shadow roots.

Brunette To Blonde

We are seeing an increasing trend at our Basingstoke & Woking salons for people to change their hair colour from brunette to blonde. The first thing to understand when changing your hair colour from one shade to a completely different shade is that this will take time.  It may take more than one appointment, or you may have to book an extended appointment slot.

It may be that we start by adding some light highlights, create a balayage effect with darker roots, or add some blonde hues as a peekaboo colour that is only revealed when your hair is tied up.
