Pastel colours

There is no doubt that pastel shades are taking centre stage, and with a variety of different colours too. The best way to choose your match with pastel colours is to match the shade to your skin tone. SJ Forbes is loving this hair trend of all things Mermaid and Unicorn hair.

The catwalks have proved that the ‘pretty shade’ is back and here to stay. Which type of pink? You choose. Any deep, bright or light pinks create that candy satisfaction! This hair trend makes a real statement.

Honey / Caramel balayage

Balayage has shifted to become a signature style, and we know it is here to stay. People are stepping away from the fresh highlighted hair trend which requires precision and high maintenance. Balayage is the perfect effortless colour technique that enhances natural style and adds depth to any hair type. 


Something different, but doesn’t require a visit to the salon every week? Copper balayage is a shade that looks good on many hair types and styles. With foundations of warm chestnuts, this hair trend is not one to miss.

Balayage is a vibe, all year round

Gorgeous glowing balayage


Balayage is increasingly popular with women who desire that natural and more sunkissed look. The most natural balayage results are when your S J Forbes colour expert paints the highlights on by hand, paying attention to where the sun might lift hair naturally. The bespoke results will be less uniform and more sunkissed than traditional foil highlights. As this method or highlighting is softest at the root area and more concentrated towards the ends of the hair, maintenance is low, providing an appropriate colour protection shampoo and conditioner is used together with regular treatments. Your colour hair expert will advise on what is best suited to you.

Whilst we are on the theme of salon experiences and experimenting, what goes better with a hairdo than a fresh set of nails?
