We all know that a glossy head of freshly coloured hair has the ability to boost our confidence and in some cases completely change our look, but did you know that selecting colour based solely on your skintone and face shape can knock years off and define your favourite features?
This clever technique coined 'Colour Contouring' by Marc Trinder, Art Team Director at Charles Worthington, empolys light and dark tones to create shadows and depth in different areas of the face to subtly change its shape and dramatically enhance your best bits. In a similar fashion to make-up contouring, this bespoke service has been secretly providing the A-list with chiselled cheekbones and defined jawlines for decades.
There are five face shape categories; round, heart, square, oblong and oval, with oval being the face shape equivalent to the hourglass figure. If you fall into any of the other categories don't fret, Marc has devised easy to digest diagrams so you know exactly where you should be applying light and dark shades to enhance your facial structure.
Follow our expert guide to find the right hair colour to flatter your face shape and step out of the salon with a whole new look - today!
