Maintaining vibrant and beautiful hair colour doesn't have to mean spending hours at the salon or constantly touching up your roots. With today's busy lifestyles, many people are looking for low maintenance hair colour options that allow them to embrace their personal style while minimising the upkeep. From balayage to root smudging, we are here to help you enjoy a low maintenance hair colour that looks fantastic!
One of the most popular low maintenance hair colour techniques is balayage. This French colouring method involves hand-painting highlights onto the hair, focusing on creating a natural and sun-kissed effect. Unlike traditional highlights that start at the root, balayage highlights begin further down the hair shaft, allowing for a seamless grow-out. This means fewer trips to the salon and less frequent touch-ups.
To help keep your balayage and highlights looking fresh at home use the Josh Wood Colour Icy Blonde Gloss for a cool toned glossy finish or the Josh Wood Colour Champagne Blonde Gloss for golden balayage.

2. Natural Shades
For those who prefer a more low-key approach to hair colour, opting for a hair colour close to your base can minimise the appearance of regrowth, allowing you to go longer between touch-ups. Enhancing your natural colour with subtle highlights or lowlights can also add dimension and depth without compromising on low maintenance styling.

3. Root Smudging
Root smudging is a technique where colour is applied to the roots to create a soft effect. By blending the new growth with the rest of the hair, root smudging helps to disguise any regrowth and extends the time between touch-ups. This technique is particularly suitable for those with darker hair colours or those who want a more lived-in, effortless look.
