Warm caramel highlights, FTW!

One of the best hair colouring options for the long haul is a warm chestnut base colour, with caramel highlights on your hair ends. Having highlights at the end of your hair will help the colour grow out beautifully and will look really natural. Additionally, this colour combination is a winner for Indian skin tones and adds a lot of depth and dimension. Don’t forget to use a colour protecting shampoo and conditioner like the Love Beauty & Planet Murumuru Butter and Rose Aroma Blooming Colour Shampoo to keep your colour fresh and vibrant for longer..

 

Opt for ‘diffused melt’ hair colour style

If you want to make your hair colour last for a longer period of time, you must go for the ‘diffused melt’ hair colour style. Simply put, this means getting a darker base colour on the roots and mid length, and lightening the colour just a little bit towards the end. This looks extremely natural because this is how natural hair colour flows as well, and therefore requires almost no touch-ups.

 

Stick to shades of your natural hair colour

This is the easiest way to ensure ease of care as well as long-lasting colour. Avoid being too experimental with your choice of colour and opt for shades that are two shades darker or lighter than your natural hair colour. Creating too much contrast ends up looking pretty unnatural and therefore requires more retouching.

 

Get face-framing highlights

Instead of a global hair colour job with a few highlights at the back, opt for face framing highlights. This is not just super minimalist yet classy, but helps to add a lot of dimension to your face. Additionally, it looks super natural and makes it look like you’ve just returned from a month-long vacation in the Bahamas. This hair colouring technique works really well to avoid frequent salon visits, because except for a few strategically placed highlights, the rest of your base hair colour is natural.
