The most important point to factor into a new hair colour is maintenance. Do you really have the time (and money) to keep your colour topped up? ‘Ask the question how often will you really visit your colourist in the future. If you’re looking to spread appointments, then opt for a shade that sits closer to your natural colour on the roots,’ explains Siobhan. ‘If you’re willing to come in more often you will have more options to choose from. It's not worth having a beautiful colour if you are sporting it with unwanted roots! Be sure to pick the best colour service to suit your lifestyle.’
