Jade Blackley of Errol Douglas gives her big colour trends for 2015.......

Balayage is Back
Whilst the technique remains freehand, rather than using a traditional comb I use Matrix Visicolour see through wraps. These create a really precise and clean application without looking contrived. I can watch the colour as it develops and so avoid colour seepage into other areas. Moving away from the golden tones of last season, I love that the new palettes include cinnamon tones for brunettes, soft ambers for blondes, and mulberry accents for red heads, which adds depth and richness.

Glazes for the Guys
The new Revlon Professional Soft Lightener is applied at the back wash on wet hair for five minutes, and creates a natural sun-kissed lift that won't scream highlights in the office! Think Brad Pitt after a Caribbean holiday.

90s Inspired Domino Colour
With the 90s revival continuing apace, two-tone split colour has been seen with a modern twist by celebs such as Gwen Stefani, finished dramatically with a straight blow-dry. The effect of 'Domino Colour' maintains the contrast of light against dark, but is used in a fresh way by applying the colour in feature panels, like Gwen's face framing pieces one side rather than all underneath.

Short and Chic
Feminine cropped haircuts with texture and softness are given a powerful edge with a vibrant block colour. Full tint colour is applied to the whole shape to intensify the effect. Brunettes should go for blackcurrant depth, and short blondes should be clean, light and pure.

All about Paloma
My hair colour crush Paloma Faith always mixes punchy glamorous colours with a fresh edge. 2015 updates her rich copper to a new 'Blush Rose' tone, soft and perfect for pre-tanned spring complexions, and also taps into the 2014 pastel trend in a more wearable elegant incarnation.
