We love a good bob, and Khloe Kardashian is currently satisfying all our bob desires. “I’m addicted to my short hair!” shared the star on Instagram. “I love this length!! I love my glam!!”

With choppy edges and layering here and there, we think it’s a gorgeous silhouette. Fingers crossed this becomes a fabulous trend and we see all kinds of wonderful bobs emerging…

Hair steaming opens up the hair cuticles, allowing deeper penetration of conditioning products.


Sadly those little Sweetheart heart candies won’t be sold this year for Valentine’s Day…how could this happen But, we will survive! Just when you thought all hope was lost for today…Kate Reid, Design Director for COLOR.ME BY Kevin Murphy has saved the day with this SweetHeart Candy look with her advice on the fab color!

Tell us a little about the Sweetheart Candy Hair color.
Pastels have been getting bigger and bigger every year, so it’s no wonder the look is here for Valentine’s Day. This year the question is more about which shade of pink rather than pink as a whole. Rose pink is our go-to for 2019 and to complete the SweetHeart look.

What inspired you to come up with the pastel hue?
Rose pink works with both warm and cool skin tones and actually sits quite neutral. This shade is made intense or more pastel when mixed, so you can pick which shade you want whether it’s “Call Me!” or “Kiss Me!” For Valentine’s Day, it’s your choice on making baby doll shades right to long lasting dense pastels. So stunning!

What skin tone does this look best on?
As mentioned anyone can wear it, it’s just what shade is best for you. On cooler skin tones work with lighter pastel rose shades or cooler dusty pinks and roses. Warm skin types should ask for dense roses, antique rose to rose golds to really make the skin glow.

What should you ask your stylist for Sweetheart Candy Hair?
Reference pictures are great, plus explain your expectation on durability as it’s up to your colorist weather it lasts just through Valentine’s Day or beyond.

How can you maintain the shade at home?
Colouring.Angels  is my go-to. No matter which SweetHeart hue you choose, there is a conditioning treatment to enhance your desired shade. They are like a lip gloss for hair adding luminous shine and topping maintaining tonal reflect. For rose or pink hair, Autumn Angel is the best and extends the life of your color

Can you rock the trend post Valentine’s Day?
Pastel and color are such huge fashion statements. These shades are timeless when worn correctly. You will fall in love once you try it!

When flat-ironing tresses, avoid passing the flat iron over each section more than once.


Hollywood hair artist, Riawna Capri of Nine Zero One Salon, took celebrity Ruby Rose’s hair from brunette to lilac. Capri explains… “I wanted to go beyond the traditional blonde or brunette for Ruby; we wanted to have fun with her color! I created this ‘violet moon’ color for her a few weeks ago, which was easier to achieve, as I had just taken her hair bleach-blonde. This time, we wanted to take it a step further… Rubicorn!

“To channel Ruby’s inner unicorn, I added lilac/lavender on the bottom and top roots, tipped it out with sapphire blue (diluted) and soft pink for the front piece to make her color truly unique!

“Pastels like lilac will only take to super-blonde hair. Make sure your hair is healthy before bleaching it. It may take more than one appointment to slowly bring your hair to this pastel trend.”
