So you’re thinking of dying your hair but you don’t want anything too drastic. And you certainly don’t want to look like you’ve done an at-home DIY frosted tips job either. You’re a man who takes care in his appearance and wants to look cool yet understated – who doesn’t right? Here’s where blogger and Youtube sensation Jack Maynard comes in. As a man who dyes his hair on the regular, Jack’s a bit of a veteran when it comes to achieving the perfect shade, and knows that men don’t always dye their hair for the same reasons us women do. Less trend driven, many men dye their hair just to add dimension to their natural shade and make it less mousy. But if you’re a first-timer and are considering a subtle colour update to transition into Autumn, chances are you might not have a clue where to start.

To answer all your burning questions, we spent a morning with Jack and Anna Short, colour director at the Daniel Galvin salon in Selfridges to find out everything you need to know if you’re thinking of taking the plunge. So if you prefer to do things on the downlow but require a bit of insider’s knowledge first, be sure to read our expert’s guide before you book in…
