It’s that time of year again and everyone’s favourite festival of colour, Holi, is about to launch in London! In preparation for the big day on the 29th July, we’ve decided to share in this colour-slinging celebration with a look at some of the hottest colour trends in the hairdressing world. Get your hair Holi-ready with inspiration from our favourite Instagrammers; from bold, rainbow shades to pastels and beyond. Spread the love and bring on the colour!
A little backstage shot of one of my models. A HairBesties fave from #TopHair show in Germany. I had so much at the show and so many great beautiful models! Thank you for coming and I hope all #HairBesties enjoyed the show. I used @olaplex in @guytang_mydentity colors on my model here and thank you to my team @arianasin @denisearussell @edolaplex @jeann_vi @hechenbergerm
Boasting an Instagram filled with soft, metallic tones, pretty pastel shades and vivid jewel hues, Guy Tang is the envy of colourists across the globe. Neon hair makes a fabulous addition to the Holi celebrations, while the unicorn craze makes a comeback with rainbow-coloured locks. And for those looking to stick to one colour family, the multi-tonal layered effect is simply stunning.
Bringing colour and vibrancy to your life (and your hair!), Not Another Salon is located along London’s own Brick Lane and is famous for its wacky and bizarre hair colouring. Try a hidden rainbow layer for a look that allows you to go from desk to festival goer in one easy style change, go for striking brights to draw attention, or choose a tonal wash of colour that will add a pop of colour to any festival outfit.
「Crystal」 『Flash Back』 Created these shades using @manicpanicnyc Creamtones with added drops of Classic formula. @olaplex was added into each for longevity. #btconeshot_unconventionalcolor17 #btconeshot_color17 #btconeshot_vibrant17 #btconeshot_colormelt17 #btconeshot_ombre17 #btconeshot_haircut17 #btconeshot_transformation17 #btconeshot_wavesandcurls17 #btconeshot_pastel17
Next up is a guy from our own little island. Jaymz Marsters from Norfolk is a Manic Panic hair colourist with a passion for vivid hues. In the same vein as Not Another Salon, Jaymz’s instagram is choc full of blindingly bright shades across the whole spectrum of the rainbow. Discover vibrant hidden rainbow hair, half-head block colours in a nod to Cruella De Vil and even some beautiful pastel tones that are reminiscent of mermaid hair – the perfect complement to your festival outfit.

It’s all about loud, rainbow colours with our next Instagrammer. 2017’s Stylist Choice Awards Best Social Media Colourist, Rebecca Taylor, has a flair for exotic hues and an eye for artistic applications. The tour around her account brings you from wild, bright leopard-inspired prints to subtler tones, and finally through to ombré-effect neon hair. We’re so envious of the colour love right here, we may have to book an appointment with her ourselves!

The London festival of Holi is being held over summer, and summer’s all about pastels, so we couldn’t resist featuring something on season. Great for the more colour shy among us, Shelley Gregory is famous for her pastel-toned hair. Cruise through her Instagram and you’ll find sleek, rainbow-toned designs and beautiful powder-coloured shades that’ll bring an air of summer to this vibrant event.
