Hair Colour Trends with Natural Instincts & Nice 'n Easy

I'm no expert when it comes to hair dye (I had my hair dyed from blonde to red for the first time a few years ago), which is why I was pretty excited to get the inside scoop from Clairol's Consulting Colourist, Luis Pacheco, at a media event recently at l'Abattoir in Gastown.

Turns out, 58% of Canadian women colour their own hair (wow!) and half of those colour their hair at home. For those of you who are used to box-dyeing your hair, the new Natural Instincts Crema Keratina is ammonia-free, lasts 28 shampoos and is super gentle on hair thanks to the keratin and beeswax formula. If you're brunette, even better! Luis Pacheco talked about how "shade-shifting" is your best way to refresh your hair colour during the summer- rather than trying a complete colour change, opt to shift to a warmer shade of your natural colour. I can really appreciate this shade-shifting trend, since the idea of completely changing my hair colour with a box dye seems kind of scary; shifting to a slightly warmer shade, on the other hand, doesn't seem too hard at all!

The Crema Keratina collection features 12 shades for brunettes, which will help you nail the warm-toned brunette colour that Luis Pacheco says will definitely be hot for fall 2015! Hmm, I've always wondered what it would be like to go brunette...

Oh man, these salmon canap├ęs from l'Abattoir were a delight! 

One of the best one-bite desserts I've had in a while- mini sticky toffee puddings

 Love this little note from Natural Instincts...and the yummy Xoxolat treats! Seriously, chocolate lovers need to give these a try.

Happy Styling! xo
