Colour master, educator, brand ambassador and social media star Monique McMahon of Que Colour Sydney has been enthralling clients and followers with innovative colour techniques through the start of this year. Here she details her top three feed-worthy colour trends to elevate your chairs.
“It’s all about the gold this year,” Monique said, titling her first must-have trend as The Golden Era.”We’re talking about that irresistible Claudia Schiffer golden hue from her 90s days. Colour that has warm tones throughout, always reflecting more light than ash or cool tones. Feel the light and brighten your clients’ vibe with a golden kissed hue and you’re sure to hear compliments about the glow.
Beyond gold, Monique’s top trends extend from White Hot Blonde to Double Glazed Brunette, two looks Monique has been inspiring with on her Instagram feed.
“White Hot Blonde is for the blondes who can never be bright enough, and always want to go blonder,” she said. “Using a mix of tightly stitched hairline foils, a ‘scandi hairline’ and freehand painting with Wella Professionals Blondor Freelights is the best way to achieve this white hot colour. My favourite toner is the Wella Professionals Illumina Color in 10/81 or 10/69, which provides the perfect milky, white, bright and HOT result.”
“For the brunettes, glazed is the word to know this year,” she added. “This colour is all about the intense gloss that is given to the hair by layering glosses or glazes in the one colour service, to intensify colour reflect and shine – hence the double glaze. This colour can vary from a more golden brunette to a deeper chocolate brunette. Penelope Cruz is a forever brunette muse for us!”
