Cool, natural hues make winter manes sparkle over the chilly season

Where but where has the year gone? I feel like I say it every year, but it really has gone in a blink! Dark nights, Strictly and X Factor can mean only one thing – Christmas is around the corner.

hair2I, for one, don’t really mind it as I love winter fashion. There’s nothing quite like wrapping up in gorgeous layers and your winter coat.

Hair colour has run through many natural and nude shades during the summer and these are set to continue into the colder months, so we’ve brought you two super gorgeous nude blondes to inspire your winter look.

Schwarzkopf Professional have launched a collection of nude shades that are absolutely stunning and range from dark to light. When used together they really can create a wonderful multi-tonal result.

Whether it be full colour, or just some really simple placement, these shades are perfect for creating a beautiful blonde. The cuts are inspired by 70s haircut – ‘the shag’ – with strong outlines and loads of sexy texture to give that ‘undone’ feel and really make the colour pop.

Speaking of sexy, we are thrilled to announce the exclusive arrival of Oribe beauty to our Jesmond, Gosforth and Ponteland salons. Oribe beauty is a unique, high-performance range of makeup, skincare and bodycare designed for woman who know how to make a bold statement. You really have to see this range to believe! It’s absolutely breathtaking and would do well to climb to the top of your Christmas list!

Until next time, stay gorgeous.

Michael Young and Gary Hooker run Hooker & Young, with five salons region-wide |
