Trained in all the latest colouring techniques and using only the very best products thanks to La Biosthetique, our best Sydney hairdressing team create the most amazing colours every single day.

While we have a heavy appreciation for our brunettes, blacks and blondes, we really love a fresh and fiery red. Red hair is bold and exciting and everyone should have the chance to experience it at least once in their life! Selecting the right shade however is tricky- while most shades of blonde and brunette can work across the board, red is a more dramatic change and there are a few rules to follow when choosing yours.

The most important thing to be mindful of is skin tone. For those blessed with tanned, sun kissed skin try softer strawberry blondes to avoid looking washed out. For those with cooler tones, you are best to stick with a darker shade like mahogany- a great entry level start point that you can brighten as you get bolder.

Rich mulled wine tones of deep berry and burgundy work together to create a multifaceted colour and are ideal for warmer skin tones looking for a more subtle update. Bright cherry shades are best for those with olive and deeper skin tones while the most fun shade of all in our opinion, ginger, is best suited to peaches and cream complexions.

Once you take the plunge be sure to maximise your colour by selecting quality maintenance products as red is the most difficult colour to maintain. We recommend the luxurious Oribe Masque for Beautiful Colour- it adds life and shine to your hair with the latest color-maintenance technology. Intense, cuticle-enriching conditioning, color-protecting UV filters and next-generation frizz-taming bio-polymers supercharge this color-enhancing, hair-repairing, glossifying masque.
