Welcome to our new post, Hair By Lisa Port Macquarie. Think of it as your direct line to the designers, stylists, beauty experts, editors, and tastemakers who are shaping the fashion and beauty world.
While replicating the shade we were before we started noticing greys may seem like the most natural option, it isn't necessarily the case, especially if your roots have gone fully grey. For brunettes that means that regrowth will be more obvious and need retouching every couple of weeks.
Additionally, when your base colour is grey, the texture is more coarse and therefore less able to reflect shine, resulting in a dark flat tone that absorbs light and puts the focus squarely on your skin, highlighting the effects of age even more than before. This is why hair colourists often recommend working with your greys, rather than against them, by going slightly lighter the older you get.
Of course, that doesn't mean that everyone should be an all-over blonde but, there are many ways to incorporate lighter, warmer hues that will make your skin appear more youthful. For brunettes that might mean a few lighter pieces around the face, known as face-framing, which will soften lines and wrinkles and illuminate a tired-looking complexion.
