Lived-in Colour is our signature hair colour service that maintains its unique lived-in look even months after you walk out of the salon by preserving your natural root then subtly fading down to your colour of choice using our signature hair painting technique – this means your hair colour looks great even when your roots grow out. Careful colour selection, expert technique, and professional after-care advice by our stylists also means your hair colour will look beautiful at every stage of it’s subsequent fade and evolution.

See the transformation of a steel grey/blue Lived-in Colour example and its evolution over the next 6 months below.

As the original virgin black hair had to be pre-lightened before applying the steel grey/blue colour, our expert stylist Den also described that the colour would eventually fade to ash blonde tips. He would however avoid brassiness or yellow tones (a typical problem with asian hair gone blonde) with careful pre-lightening.



During the 6 months post-colour, there were no additional colour touch-ups done and the colour and hair integrity were maintained purely with monthly Olaplex Hair Restoration Treatments at PREP Luxe and the use of Olaplex No. 3 (retailing at $79 at PREP Luxe) weekly and JOICO purple shampoo & conditioner at home (retailing at $34 each at PREP Luxe).

Root regrowth is clear when comparing the pictures across the 6 months period. However, despite the original blue fading away, the natural and subtle hair painting technique that preserved the natural root resulted in a unique lived-in ash blonde look that still looks uniquely lived-in and natural 6 months later. All this without any further expense or time spent on colouring services!
