Why just stick with one colour?
Directions gives you the freedom to create and experiment with a huge variety of blends and colour combinations.
There are so many ways to mix up your palette, but knowing where to start can be a little overwhelming. Do you go for a careful composition of shades that naturally complement each other, or rebel against the colour wheel with a clash of light, dark, bright and bold?
With 46 mixable colours in our collection, the possibilities are endless. So, for a little inspiration, we turned to the Directions community — you never fail to stand out with all kinds of scroll-stopping styles.
Tropical ocean hues meet bold purple tones to make two of our most lively colours form the perfect contrast. The half and half look is brave, iconic and brimming with possibilities.
We’re always excited to see new Directions hair colour creations from The Vanity Dolls. This time, they’ve taken two of our brightest colours to blend a look which radiates that ready-to-glow confidence.
Libby has gone for this unmissable combo of colour that will burn bright in the summer and turn up the heat in winter. A year-round look that’s sure to turn heads.
Looking pretty in this powerful combination of pinks, purple and blue, these vibrant colour slices leave hair looking like something out of a fairytale. We especially love the hint of Wisteria that brings this look together perfectly.
This subtle blend of blues and greens really shimmers! The light glossy hues of Turquoise are perfect for bringing out the depth and intensity found in the darker tones of Alpine Green.
Colour blends are always a surefire way to refresh your look and get you experimenting with new styles. Often, it’s the combinations that you’d never dream of that you end up loving the most.
Combining multiple colours is simpler than you might think, but make sure you follow these seven golden rules before you get started.
1. Check the colour wheel
If you mix colours that are opposite each other on the colour wheel, they will cancel each other out. For example, mixing green with orange will create a dull brown.
2. Test your colour ratios
Before applying throughout your hair, mix different quantities of your chosen colours separately and see how they look with individual strand tests.
3. Prevent colour bleeding
When applying multiple colours, make sure you keep separate shades clipped up and out of each other’s way.
4. For the split colour look
To stop them from blending together, apply your colours separately and follow each individual set of instructions.
5. Apply your colour from the roots down
For best results, always start at the roots and work your way down to the ends of your hair.
6. Keep it clean between colours
Always wash and dry your hair separately between applying each shade.
7. If it’s your first time mixing
We strongly recommend investing in a Mixing Bowl Tint Brush, Mixing Bowl and a pair of Latex Gloves to keep colour where you want it, and nowhere you don’t.
