Award-winning Doncaster hair salon SAKS are giving STYLE readers the lowdown on autumnal hair hues to get you glowing into winter - and a £10 saving on the latest colour techniques.

and a £10 saving on the latest colour techniques.

The High Street salon, winners at the 2013 L’Oréal Colour Trophy,

say the vital first step towards a stunning new hair colour is to firstly head straight to your stylist for a deep-conditioning treatment and a trim to get rid of dry, damaged ends caused by summer sun.

“Then you’re ready to dip into the very latest dying techniques,” says salon owner Rebecca Green.

“Ombre or ‘dip-dye’ was a popular colour effect this summer and is moving into the new season with the use of a warmer colour palette - ranging from burnt copper, mahogany, rich brown and subtle caramel to toffee blonde,” says Rebecca.

“Another option is chromative colour, semi-permanent shades that complement your regular hair colour and add beautiful shine and condition. Chromative colours can be used as full-head or only on the ends of the hair.”

SAKS are also fans of the L’Oréal Professionnel Dia Richesse amonia-free colour range, which introduces mocha shades which not only help to make the hair look super shiny but also leave the hair in premium condition. “This collection has an amazing palette that ranges from deep reds, copper, oak and blackberry-brown to grape-purple. A great option for summer blondes is dark mocha with caramel highlights.”

SAKS are offering STYLE readers £10 off one salon service priced over £30, with selected stylists, on production of this page at the reception for four weeks from the publication date. Only one voucher per client is accepted.


Highlights and lowlights

Fine sections of hair are lightened for a vibrant sun-kissed effect, or darkened with lowlights to add warmth.


A variety of tones within the same family of colour are used to add depth and warmth. Tone-on-tone produces a natural-looking finish.


This type of colour removes pigment from the hair while also depositing new colour.


Colour that only lasts for six to 12 shampoos.


This involves painting sections of the hair freehand.

Ombre and dip-dye

The ends of the hair are dyed a different colour or shade. The effect can be dramatic or subtle.
