I have my hair coloured regularly and I have to say that my recent salon experience produced by far one of the best results I’ve ever seen. What did I do differently? Enter Wella Professionals Colour Contouring. This new technique is similar in concept to makeup contouring in that it works to enhance and highlight certain aspects of my face by the colour of my hair. The process involved working with my hair colour to complement my eyes and skin tone, to produce a result that was quite flattering to me specifically. According to Stuart Bane, the stylist who coloured my hair at Valonz in Sydney, colour contouring also takes into account face shape and how hair colour can balance it. He says, it’s about “creating the illusion of an oval [as it is] believed to be the ‘perfect’ face shape.”
What I loved about the Wella Professionals colour contouring service is that it’s bespoke – the colour is specifically tailored to me. Stuart really analysed my locks and not only took into account things like my skin tone and eye colour, he also worked with my style and what I wear on a regular basis to ensure my hair colour was complementary to my wardrobe (I particularly loved that aspect of it). In fact, it was so personalised that when I mentioned that I part my hair both down the middle and to the side Stuart made sure that the colour would look great from all angles no matter how I wore my hair. I knew that from the attention to detail given throughout my consultation, that this was going to be a different experience to all the other times I’ve had my hair coloured.
Needless to say, I was right! I’m a big believer that when anything is customised it’s guaranteed to produce amazing results so it’s no surprise that this was by far one of the best colour jobs I have ever experienced. The colour just worked perfectly with all aspects of my look even right down to my outfit and I was so pleased with the outcome that I’d happily go back and do it all again. How often can you honestly say that after a visit to the hairdresser?
