An American journalist living in Paris, Elizabeth has a passion for all things hair.

We live in a world of options. With literally millions of colours out there, it’s safe to say that it can prove challenging to decide on a single one to wear in pride of place - on your head. Put those worries at bay, we’ve done the trend-hunting and brought all our fave looks here for your colour chameleon pleasure. With the expert help of Andrea Daley at Barbara Daley, L'Oréal Professionnel Colourist, and  L'Oréal Professionnel’s #Colorfulhair Range, you can decide on a style and colour (or two!) that will best suit you, and go about achieving it in the safest way possible. 
“L'Oréal Professionnel’s #Colorfulhair is super nourishing and makes your hair feel ultra soft. You can also mix colours as you want, making them as soft or a vibrant as you like - it gives so much freedom”, says Daley. The freedom of choice has never looked so good.

Peekaboo! Flashes Of Hair Colour

“This look is perfect for colour first timers” says Daley. “If you want to start experimenting with colour but don’t want to go the whole way, you can start with this more reserved section of hair and colour it as softly or boldly as you like. The good thing is that you can still really set yourself apart from the rest with this look, while still remaining sensible in the daytime. And bonus: it’s totally low commitment!”

Blunt Pastel Bob

If you’re edgy AF and love to make a statement, this look has your name all over it. Whether delicate pink, lush lilac, or even a soft blue, this style is undoubtedly a head-turner.

.“It’s safe to say this look is not for the wallflowers of the world”, says Daley. “You’re going to get a lot of attention with this look, but if you have the confidence, this colour palette can look great against the skin, especially for paler tones”. “If you’ve got warmer skin, then try to avoid orange and reddy colors - the idea is to balance out your tones” - Andrea Daley

Wavy Mermaid Balayage

This magical number is undoubtedly a look you’ve seen all over your social media feeds, standing as one of 2018’s most popular colour looks. 

“This colour blend definitely takes a lot of personality, but at the same time, it’s softer than an all over colour, especially if you opt for lighter ends”, says Daley. “Due to the array of colours, it also gives you more freedom when it comes to things like makeup. Little tip: if you have fine hair, it’s generally good to go for darker ends to thicken it out and inject some volume!”

Subtle Unicorn Highlights

With over 500,000 hashtags on Instagram, unicorn hair is not only one of the most mystical colour trends, but among the most popular! For Daley, 

“this look is definitely one of the most flexible. Because you only have the odd fleck of colour but it’s a real range, it adds a certain vibrancy to your look while allowing you to remain free with your outfit and makeup colours. It’s also one of the more natural bold hair colour looks, if the tones are strategically placed”.
