    If you want to give it a go yourself at home, these are pro hair colourist, Josh Wood’s top tips:

    1. Condition it

    “Use a deep-conditioning hair mask before you are going to colour – it really helps with the porosity of your hair, thus giving a more even result.”

    2. Test a patch

    “Always do a patch test (where you put the colour behind your ear) and ideally a strand test (where you put the colour on your hair) to check you don’t react to the colour. Leave this for 48 hours and try not to get it wet if possible. If you have no adverse reactions, you’re good to go.”

    3. Put up a barrier

    “To prevent hair colour staining your skin, apply a barrier cream around your hairline. These aren’t included in all home colour kits so you can use Vaseline.”

    4. Section smart

    “Use a wide-toothed comb to brush your hair beforehand; smooth hair means you won’t get clumps of colour or missed patches. Then, split your hair into a “hot cross bun” i.e. four sections. Try and keep your sections neat, so you can track what parts have been coloured and what haven’t. Section the hair as you go along, using the comb, or even the tip of the colour bottle.”

    5. Dot it

    “I recommend using the “dotting method” when applying colour. Start by dotting the colour on in a line along your section parting and then pushing the dots into your roots first for maximum coverage, being careful not to accidentally rub the colour off. Then brush the colour through the lengths and end for the last ten minutes, to give a freshly coloured salon finish.”

    Want a more subtle hue? Try grey hair, or maybe browse our gallery of blonde or brunette colour options.
