This summer’s colour is all about a balayage or ombre, so take your colour up another level with the season’s most on trend colours for a natural sun kissed look or a pop of colour.

If you’re heading to the beach or on a staycation, be sure to have fun while looking fabulous with a new colour.


Coral Twist

By Tina M, Rush Workshop Team member and Salon Manager Rush Kensington

We can’t get enough of this coral beaute! This hue is a hot trend for the summer so if you are looking for something fun or attending a festival – this is it! With a multi-tonal effect, this colour is a head turner, working perfectly for someone with short – shoulder length hair. The celebrity world is already loving this short, pastel look! Julianne Hough showed off her beautiful pink hair in April showing how fabulous these tones look on shorter cuts.

To create this fabulous loose wave style, Tina says ‘I used Tecni Art Beach Waves to create texture then the Liss Control serum to give it a nice sheen. My inspiration came from the peach fruit, the blending of the two shades of orange.’

Golden Balayage

Stlying by Nita, Franchisee and Consultant at Rush Kilburn

Add dimension and life into your hair with a Golden Balayage. Imagine the photo opportunities that you’ll have with a beautiful balayage lifting your hair. If you’re looking to add more dimension to your blonde, a balayage will give you everything you need to add an illusion of body and the sun kissed finish. For styling, adding voluminous waves is a must, as it brings out the beautiful layers of blonde on your strands. Think Jennifer Lopez when considering this look! She’s known to sport a beautiful balayage and highlights.

Nita says, ‘I used the ghd Curl Tong to create the wave effect along with styling products Kerastase Keratin Thermique, Kerastase Laque and also Redken Iron Spray for hold’
