    It seems like American model Chloe Norgaard changes her hair colour as much as she changes her clothes. Being most likely to exhaust the colours of the rainbow, her unique and extravagant hairstyles are her trademark!

    At the Elle Style Awards 2014, Chloe Norgaard combined violet and light blue coloured ends with interwoven strands of green and pink (left). The hair close to the roots shows her natural brunette hair colour adding a laid back approach while the casual beach waves add flair to this super cool style!

    For her appearance at the Belvedere Party (centre) Chloe Norgaard coloured her hair a yellowish blonde near the roots, with large sections dyed a luminescent hot pink. The rainbow look is finished with light purple strands of hair through the mid-lengths and ends of the hair.

    Another show another hair colouring scheme! At the Whistles Show, Chloe Norgaard appeared wearing a grunge style outfit with her hair parted in the middle and coloured in shades of neon green (right). Toward the hair ends, the intensity of the green hair colour has faded to yellow.

    The multi-coloured mermaid look is extravagant in its own right therefore keep styling simple and wear it loose with an accurate middle parting. Whether worn sleek and straight or with beach waves, this multi-tonal look is sure to turn heads. To see how easy it is to achieve the multi-colour look at home, check out our video.

    Your roots coming through can also be integrated into your new look. Adding a bold statement to the style, visible roots add another colour dimension and can be combined with anything from pretty pastel hues to wild and sassy colour blocks. Experiment with middle and side partings as well as different fringes to fit your colour choices.

  • Rainbow Colours for Your Hair: How to Care for Dye-Treated Hair

    Proper colour protection is essential for deep and lasting colour effects. Modern hair care products for colour-treated hair ensure that colours retain their just coloured look and help to prevent the shade from fading. Choose a shampoo and conditioner specially designed for coloured hair, such as the essence ULTÎME Diamond Color range, to keep colour looking great.

    If you coloured your hair using a semi-permanent colour, it’s even simpler to keep your hair looking great. Semi-permanent colours can be reapplied to the hair as often as you like to keep colour looking vibrant. Or, if you have used a permanent colour, you can keep colour looking fresh by applying a semi-permanent shade in a similar colour over the top. For example, if you are wearing a blue black shade, apply a blue semi-permanent over the top to refresh your look. Check out how to do it here.
