Black Hair Shades 

Black Hair Colours Top Hair Colour Trends at McGills Hairdressing Salon in EdinburghWhen you think of black hair colours, do you often think of the flat, dull shades often associated with home hair colours? Not at our Edinburgh salon!

Black hair shades actually come in a rainbow of colours from icy blacks, blue blacks to soft multi-tonal black hair colours. Book in for a hair colour consultation with us so that we can assess your skin tone, eye colour and maintenance needs to find the perfect black hair shade for you. 

If you have natural black hair colour, why not ask your McGills colour specialist to add highlights for a subtle, multi-dimensional effect to your hair.


Bold Red Hair Colours

Red Hair Colours Top Hair Colour Trends at McGills Hairdressing Salon in EdinburghStand out from the crowd this year with a sensational red hair colour. There are a wide range of red hair colours to choose from, from strawberry blondes to cherry red shades - there's a red hair colour to suit everyone!

Many clients choose a bold red hair colour makeover whilst some prefer to gradually build up with subtle highlights and lowlights. Adding a new red hair shade is a fabulous way to lift a natural brunette or to tone down a bright blonde. 

If you are blessed with naturally red hair and wish to enhance your hair colour, we can add complementary tones and shades to brighten and flatter your locks. 


Bright Blonde "Foilayage" Hair Colour

Blonde Top Hair Colour Trends at McGills Hairdressing Salon in EdinburghOne of the most popular hair colour techniques over the last few years is the balayage, but have you heard of the foilayage? This twist on the classic balayage allows us to create a brighter hair colour effect, similar to traditional highlights but with a less noticeable root regrowth.

This technique requires a little more maintenance than a balayage, so we would recommend visiting us every 8-10 weeks to keep your colour looking fabulous.

If you aren't sure which blonde will work best for you, book into our Edinburgh salon for a complimentary consultation. Our experts will assess your maintenance needs, eye colour, complexion and more to determine which blonde would suit you.
