Are you excited by vivid hair colouring? If so, then today you’re in for a treat as I’m about to bring you Part 2 of our series titled: ‘The Rise of the Vivid Hair Colourists‘. Joining me for this, we again have a bonus of two interviews all rolled into one mega episode, as I’m in the company of two outstanding vivid hair colourists, Heather Mackenzie and Jaymz Marsters.

With their vivid hair colour posts on social media, both Heather and Jaymz’s career currency and online presence has gone to another level over the last year. Flying the flag for British Hairdressing, Heather and Jaymz are making big names for themselves regardless of where they are located in the UK. Heather in South Yorkshire and Jaymz in the East of England. Both are validation you can now achieve great industry things no matter where you’re located.

It’s fair to say that vivid hair colour trend have exploded over the last few years. Tired of the natural palette, a generation of consumers and hairstylists alike have turned to creating head turning colours. Something not seen since the early 80’s has vivid hair colours never been so popular.

I love how this exciting new breed of hair colourists (‘The Brit Pack’) have harnessed the new technology of hair colours and the results it gives them. Combine this with their creative colouring techniques ,boom, the final looks are eye popping good! Just one scroll through social media and the results are their to be seen.
