Norwich hair salon is ahead in colour at fashion week

Colour is tipped to be all over the catwalks at Norwich Fashion Week and while you may know what colours suit you, do you know what tones suit your hair? EMMA HARROWING takes a reader to test a new colour consultation service.

When Cheryl Cole went from a dark brunette to a blonde and Louise Redknapp changed her golden tresses to a shade of brown most of us thought that the colour change complemented their look.

Changing your hair colour can be a big step and of course celebrities have a team of professional (and expensive) stylists on tap to make sure their hair always look great.

So what if you could get the same professional advice for your hair – and for free?

The Gallery Haircutters on Waterloo Road has recently launched a colour consultation service to help you discover what tones suit you. The new service is a step up from the salon's previous colour service as the process takes into consideration your lifestyle and personality, as well as your skin tone, eye colour and your hair's natural base.

Mandy Dunham, co-owner of The Gallery Haircutters, believes that this bespoke colour consultation service is unique in Norwich. Says Mandy: 'Hair colour cannot be changed everyday like clothes or make-up so a good colour consultation is vital. Our bespoke service with our Colour Connection team takes into consideration all elements of your lifestyle and look to give you a customised hair colour palette.'

The cost of this service is �20 which includes a discount voucher off a colour at the salon. However, for Norwich Fashion Week The Gallery are offering this service for free at their Focus On Colour event on Monday, March 12.
