With some great colour work on last night's MOBO red carpet, Errol Douglas colour master, Jasmin Allen shares her top five picks.
They say the bigger the hair the closer to God, and with Ella’s dramatic colour seamlessly pulled off, I agree! Ella really shows off the diversity of the curl, volume and colour options possible with mixed heritage hair that's kept in good condition with regular hydrating treatments.
She's young enough to really own a dramatic contrast Ombre, and it completely suits her vibe and her complexion. By staying close to her natural hair colour around the face, it's framed in the most flattering position to make her eyes and skin really pop without any harshness around her features from the dramatic blonde. It's perfectly placed.
Sarah Jane Crawford and Mel B – The Winter Wonders
The co-hosting ladies both opted for an autumn colour detox and went back to black – drama, condition and high shine for a big night out, and it allows the hair to rest too.
My top tip when going dark is to keep it semi-permanent, that way by the time the roots show the overall hue will have naturally faded. It's also gentler on the hair and the shine achievable is incredible without giving up the freedom to change it up seasonally.
Nicole Scherzinger and Myleene Klass – The "Sombre" Ladies!
Great Sombre work from both. I've been a big fan of Sombre (soft Ombre) over the last few years, and have really enjoyed seeing it more on red carpets and catwalks in the last few months.
This freehand technique delivers a more subtle, seamless, complexion lifting finish, letting the tones selected flow into each other – I call it the infinity pool of hair colour! Nicole's Sombre is made up of warm autumnal toffee and caramel tones, which really radiate the skin. Myleene's interpretation has great versatility. When parted in the middle it's dark near the eyes and when it's flipped either side it's lighter for an alternate look.
