Top Tips for Toned Summer:

  • Your colours are the softest (most muted) of the summer season, you may be attracted to autumn colours but the muted summer colours will look better.

  • If you want to use fake tan make sure it has a cool undertone, and not too dark, otherwise you will end up looking like an oompa loompa.

  • Ash blondes and ash browns go brassy very quickly unless you shower in rain water, so get a toner put in regularly or try a purple shampoo.
