Two-tone, three-tone or ten-tone! Why stick to two shades when you can embrace every colour of the rainbow?! Use our LIVE Aqua Collection to create a multi-toned look, applying just to the underneath section of your hair for a hidden ‘do.
Blunt bobs are just everywhere right now. To add a bit of extra drama to the look, paint our LIVE Turquoise Temptation through the tips to make one major statement!
Soft pastel hues create a beautifully subtle ombré look. You can easily create two tone hair colours using our LIVE Ultra brights or Pastel range - mix them with the in-pack conditioner or LIVE Pastel It! to achieve gorgeous custom shades.
Dramatic roots are so in right now. When applying colour, leave the top inch of your roots without colour for an immediate ‘I woke up like this’ look. Or just don’t touch up the roots for a while and you’ll be rocking the pastel-grunge look in no time!

Craving an ombré that packs a punch? Opt for our LIVE Max Blonde shade and brush through the last third of your hair, finishing in loose curls for a tousled two tone look.
Ombré needn’t be confined to blonde locks. Darker tresses can be transformed using our LIVE Intense Lighteners - using the jawline as the point for the colour transitioning to begin, you can use a new toothbrush to blend a natural looking sweep of colour. Don’t forget to finish with a toner like LIVE Colour Refresher for Cool Blondes to help knock out residual brassy tones.
