Say hello to 2019 new hair…

The New Colour To Know About: Living Coral

Pantone’s Colour of the Year is always a key inspiration for colourists and stylists but 2019’s colour is what hair dreams are made of. Introducing ‘Living Coral’, the ocean-inspired coral hue with a golden undertone, aka the perfect hair colour if you’re looking for an on-trend pastel. Combining SoColor Cult Orange Alert and Sparkling Rose should achieve your oh-so 2019 coral colour.

The New Fashion Tone To Know About: Vintage Pastels

Expect more pastels on the hair agenda with one of the hottest trends straight off the SS19 runways: antique-inspired pastels. Think pastel pinks, peaches and greens that have been updated with a metallicized twist to make them look lived-in. Try using SoColor Cult Disco Silver or Marble Grey as a base coat to give your pastel a more grown-up feel.


The New Technique To Know About: Freehand Painting

Okay, it’s not exactly a new trend but the technique is set to go stratospheric in 2019 as people embrace their natural texture. “More and more people are embracing their individual beauty and enhancing it with the use of colour,” says Ria Kulik, Artist Educator for Matrix. Lightening super-fine pieces of hair with fingers and palms gives naturally curly and afro hair more of an ‘organic’, natural-looking colour.


The New Brights To Know About: Paintbox Palette

“Expect neon bright colours for 2019,” Ria says. “These shades are big, bold and not sorry - colours so saturated they looked almost cartoon-like.” Think highly pigmented paintbox brights in primary colours like blue, green and orange. It’s a punchy palette that’s made for colour addicts. Get the look with SoColor Cult in Admiral Navy, Clover Green or Orange Alert.

The New Tonal Tactic To Know About: Matchy-Matchy

If you really want to put your coloured hair in the spotlight for the new year, think tone-on-tone-on-tone. The coolest way to wear your hair shade is with colour match clothes. Tonal fashion is a big trend for 2019, and it’s officially top-to-toe, starting with your hair colour. Help to keep your colour at its glossiest with Colour Obsessed!
