Our Colour TREND Forecast: For Men Made to STAND OUT


Men are dying their hair left right and CENTRE at the moment and we are LOVING it. After the early 2000’s, we completely understand why a lot of men shudder at the thought of doing anything too ‘wild’ with their hair; but times have changed since the days of Justin Timberlakes noodle curls and frosted tips. Have a look for yourself (number 4 is our fave).


Bring on summer with this tropical colour; famous from Frank Ocean’s 2016 Blonde album, we think brighter looks will start popping up in 2021 as our everyday fashion choices get more creative this year.

Shown here on Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero, silver is a stand-out colour choice for men who want to be on-trend without bright colours. Silver can be worn so many ways too, you can even darken your roots and add a black root smudge; for a more charcoal look with dimension.

3. Platinum BABY!

The Silver manes cousin, for the fairer skin tones. If you’re feeling like your style needs a shake-up why not go platinum? This is giving us SUMMER. VIBES.

Even ol’ Paddy McGuiness has jumped on this one! But we’re thinking more  Channing Tatum as our style icon (sorry Paddy). We couldn’t use Channing’s photo due to copyright, so enjoy a photo of this lovely chap.

Greyish hues of blue and lavender are great ways to express your style but still keeping a level of tame. Zayn Malik is a huge advocate for fun hair, and we really think he hit the nail on the head with this one. These icey, metallic colours fade out better than their vibrant counterparts, and are more on the subtle side; but still definitely a statement.

5. COMING IN HOT (but make it short)

We apologise for using Frank Ocean as our model again (but not really), he just KNOWS how to pull off coloured hair. The bright greens, blues and hot pinks just WORK on short hair! Not only is the short hair pairing summer friendly, but you can experiment with a fresh head of colour every trim!

For longer hair we’d definitely recommend a pastel colour! The beauty of pastel is that it can be created in a way that fades out for less maintenance.

Still unsure?

With Wella’s Color Fresh masks or Perfecton products you can top up your salon colour or experiment at home; perfect if you want a boost of colour for a night out!

Get in touch with the salon and we can recommend the best colour mask for a temporary change before you take the plunge!

You Can Do This! Reopening Advice…


You’re not alone. Last reopening, we had some nervous clients and we know that coming back to the salon can be a daunting task for many. So, here at Sixth Sense Salon Sutton Coldfield, we’ve put together some of our top tips for life returning to normal.

 Ease yourself into things.

Start introducing areas of normal life that make you feel comfortable. If you’ve been a bit more hermit-ish than others this lockdown (guilty!), this could be interacting more with your close family/friends through phone calls, walking more, or waking up a bit earlier. For our more extroverted types, go for walks with friends, get excited to share your highs and lows of lockdown, and try seeing how they’ve coped.

Just a teeny bit of progress is all you need, slow and steady guys.

Repeat after me: “I am not silly”.

It can be so easy to dismiss our concerns and write them off because we feel silly. Make this your mantra for when you’re out in the real world. It’s not silly to feel nervous, it’s not silly to be cautious. Remember this when you’re in the salon too; ask us questions, be honest (you aren’t the only one who regretfully reached for the box dye!), and just talk to us freely! We’re all human too and had our own lockdown struggles, and we 100% get it.

Put YOU first.

When we say this we mean two things; mind AND body guys. Don’t forget to keep hydrated and eat plenty, it sounds so simple but you need this extra energy more than ever now! When it comes to your mind, try to take things as slow as possible, constantly assess your boundaries, and try not to sign up to too much. You’re well within your rights to say  “I’d love to go for a walk, but I’m struggling and I don’t feel I can make plans just yet , can I get in touch when I’m ready?”.

Routine your home time!

Resist temptation to fill your calendar with endless outside demands, and schedule things to do at home. If you’re particularly struggling with the lockdown ease, give yourself a goal  you’re comfortable with, say 5 hours a week out of the house, and see if you can gradually increase this until you’re back to your usual self.

Seek extra help.

Think about the main reason you’re struggling ith the transition, and whether there are any resources you can use. Be that counselling, friends, or websites, here’s some of our favourites:

At Sixth Sense Salon Sutton Coldfield we have strict safety measures in place, hand sanitisers at every station, a mask policy, longer working days (9am-9pm) to minimise clients in the salon at one time, and call our clients before their appointment to check they’ve not had any symptoms. If you have any questions, please get in touch, through our social media, or info@sixthsensesalon.co.uk.

For more information on COVID-19 rules for visiting the salon, and what we’re doing to keep you safe, visit our blog from last lockdown here.




Pop by the salon this Wednesday to get your hands on the AMAZING products you’ve missed! We have plenty of shampoos and conditioners to save your colour, alongside our STUNNING Colour Fresh masks if you’re needing a colour refresh before we see you next 🌈 We’ve also managed to get our hands on some Rapture Hair Extensions removal kits for all our Rapunzel babes out there 👀

If none of that takes your fancy, we’ve got gift cards available which you can purchase for a friend (or treat yourself if you’d like to help out!) 💇🏻‍

Message us directly or email info@sixthsensesalon.co.uk and we’d be happy to get you the goods 🍬 Here’s a bit more information on the products we have to offer:


The Colour Fresh Mask is a treatment for reviving and refreshing your hair colour, whilst keeping your strands silky smooth. This is a great product for those needing to maintain their colour, or who want something bolder in between appointments. Allowing for a speedy refresh at home, you can see more about these masks in Wella’s promo video below:

Nioxin is the gift that keeps on giving for those with thinning hair, with an extensive list of products from shampoos and conditioners to mousses and hairspray. 

A great starting point for Nioxin Newbies would be the 3-part System kit. Each 3-part System contains a unique blend of three technologies, formulated to promote scalp health and combat thin hair in both women and men. They’ve got the evidence to back them too; in a survey amongst 230 panelists, 85% of consumers who tried the Systems noticed a thickening effect. 

You can find out more about Nioxin products and get hair loss advice on their website here.


You need to buy this shampoo (or one of its colour saving sisters) if you have coloured hair you want to keep as vibrant as you. This particular range includes Wella’s “Color Brilliance-Blend™”, a powerful combination of new ingredients that maintain colour vibrancy and protect coloured hair. Copper encapsulating molecules maintain vibrancy whilst histidine and vitamin E help control the oxidation process after colouration and protect the colour (Anti-Oxidant Shield Technology). The Lime Caviar is known to contain various anti-oxidants and vitamins.

And they smell SO GOOD with a mix of refreshing citrus cocktail and a woody soft undertone. You can find out more on Wella’s website here.


Elements is Wella Professionalss ‘free of'” care range for ingredient-conscious clients. With NuTree Complex, the Elements range instantly repairs and prevents against keratin degeneration.

If you haven’t seen a product yet that suits what your looking for, then System Professional are bound to have the one for you. Their extensive range involves products for volumising, balancing, purifying, energising, hydrating and all other areas of hair maintenance. Our customer favourites include the Hydration Mist, the Colour Save range and Silver Shine shampoo and conditioner. 

To see all the wonderful products they have to offer, visit their website here.


After last lockdown we refused to have another Click and Collect without the Rapture Removal Kit to help out our clients with extensions. The removal kit includes a shampoo and conditioner for maintenance and a comb and removal spray which allows you to gently remove the extensions (we advise you ask someone to help though) to make this lockdown easier. We advise you keep hold of the extensions, and as soon as we’re back we’d be happy to get you back to your volumized selves!
