L’Oreal Professionnel kindly invited me to try a new shade so I visited the sophisticated Paris-meets-Japan salon Maison Tsumiki and let stylist Mai work her magic. The chosen look comes from L’Oreal’s new Spring/Summer hair colour collection they have titled ‘Ombres Natures’. It plays on the two-tone or graduated hair trend, a sister to balyage, using INOA shades in mocha which are intended to match seasonal fashion especially florals. The trend is quite subtle as the colour is deftly hand-painted in two distinct layers and then fused where they meet. My tresses are now a richer shade of mahogony than my raw hair on top with a hint of the darkest chocolate peeking out from underneath. “It’s a very natural look” explained Mai.
