Ice cream colour exploded at festivals such as Glastonbury and Coachella, and shows no sign of fading.
As clients become more confident with colour and enjoy experimenting with their hair, pastels look set to be around for a while. We’ve seen plenty of celebrities with ice cream colour hair, from full on pinks and lilacs to mermaid hair and subtle hues or hidden sections, known as peek-a-boo color. This is ideal for clients who may have a conservative job by day but want to show off their personality away from work.
Our world-class instructors show you how to get the looks your clients’ want using exceptional, but easy to learn colour techniques. Use our MHD hair colour tutorials to learn the specific techniques you need for the latest on-trend colours.
