Top 5 STAND-OUT Colours for this Autumn

With a team bursting with creative talent and Master Colour Experts, we’ve seen a fair few colour shake-ups in the salon this month.

We’ve collated our top 5 trending colours for your Autumn inspo needs, whether they give you some direction for your next visit, or inspire you to replicate the whole look, feel free to save these as a reference to show our fearless stylists! 🥊

ROYAL RASPBERRY

Royal Raspberry could easily be our favourite colour this autumn. Created by our Style Director Jon, it strays completely from your usual autumn colours but is still a hue that’s synonymous with the season. A deeper burgundy at first glance, with flashes of shocking raspberry underneath. Looking fresh. 🍃

 

PUMPKIN SPICE

Some more trend-setting from our Style Director Jon, this multi-tonal honey blonde is a perfect autumn colour that will take you flawlessly into winter months. Whether with peachy cheeks or a bold red lip, this colour gives off that naturally sophisticated autumnal vibe (we just wouldn’t be able to resist styling this colour with big bouncy curls). 🍯🎃

AUTUMN ROSE

Dark natural roots melt into slices of vibrant rosy-copper for a luxurious unique take on autumn hair. Salon Team Leader Conna-Rae isn’t a stranger to the rosy-copper masterpiece – we knew it would take off when he created it on a chic wavy bob earlier this year. 🌹🍂

MOLTEN OMBRE

This one is hot. For a low maintenance splash of colour why not go for this molten copper ombre? This molten look is a low maintenance alternative for someone who likes to shake things up for autumn and doesn’t want the commitment; or for our darker clients this can be a great start for a gradual transition into a blonde summer balayage! Created by style director Jon. 🌋

RED OPIUM

The trick with luxury deep reds is all in the roots. By deepening this look with a dark root smudge, we’ve amped up the dimension and turned this rich red into a colour that’s even more envy worthy. ♥️🖤

 

👻NOT FOR THE FAINT HEARTED!👻

Whilst the above colours are absolutely gorgeous, we’ve recently been creating some amazing and even more vibrant looks in the salon. 👨‍🎤 Duo-tones and colour flashes are edgy and on trend for spooky month… if you dare.🦇🦇🦇

🏳️‍🌈 PROUD TO BE SIXTH SENSE SALON 🏳️‍🌈

Now our 6S Pride event has been and gone, I spoke with our Salon Directors and Co-Founders Dean Robertson and Dean Vinning to hear their thoughts around the event…

  

🥳 What was the idea behind this event? 🥳

“It was a spontaneous idea really… we had a few members of staff who had booked to go to Birmingham Pride this summer, when we heard it had been postponed because of the pandemic we felt like we wanted to bring pride to the salon instead! Preparing for our very own 6S Pride gave the team something to be excited for, whilst giving our clients who attended on the day something fun to celebrate. The event also gave us the opportunity to bring some positive news to our awesome loyal clients who weren’t booked in on the day, but cheered us on and supported online”

🌈 What happened at the event? 🌈

“From rainbow flags to rainbow straws; if it had a rainbow we bought it! Our amazing stylist Amy showed off her balloon arch skills as rainbow balloons welcomed our clients into the salon, whilst our Front of House played a pride playlist especially made for the day. Our stylists were dressed in fabulously camp gear (shout out to Jon who had to get a very public train home that evening in his hot pants!) and drinks were flowing whilst we celebrated in style.”

🤔 What about COVID guidelines? 🤔

“We know we know, there’s still a pandemic (sigh). But who said we couldn’t still have fun?! Masks were still worn, sanitiser was still used, stations were still sterilised and in a bid to be safe with our drinks we had enough canned cocktails to sink a ship!”

😊 Will it be making a reoccurrence? 😊

“I did an Instagram poll on our stories and a lot of you guys loved it! I think we may have started something that will be around for a long time… maybe next year a pride week? Who knows, but it’ll definitely be back for a day or two in 2022 at least!”

✨ Is there anything you’d like to share? ✨

“Just that we are so grateful for all the client loyalty and support we have received lately, our salon seems to attract some of the best people, and we couldn’t be any happier with our close and extended 6S Family!”

See below some of our photos from the day!

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).

  1. TROPICAL GREEN

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.

2. SILVER FOX

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.

4. GREY HUE BLUE

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!

6. LONG PASTEL

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.

NIOXIN

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.

INVIGO COLOUR BRILLIANCE

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.

PARABEN AND SULPHATE FREE – ELEMENTS

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.

Our customer favourites include the Hydration Mist, the Colour Save range and Silver Shine shampoo and conditioner.

RAPURE REMOVAL KITS

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!
