Colours Of 2019 – Deep Plum

We’re so excited to announce the first in the video series of Colours Of 2019…Deep Plum.

Following the launch of our six new base colour shades at the start of the year, we wanted to showcase the diverse nature and sheer vibrancy of each shade and bring to light how they can work for you and your own hair colour.

We haven’t created this project alone, we have been working with British Colour Technician of the Year 2018, Vice President of the Fellowship of Hairdresser, British Hairdresser of the Year 2019 nominee and Great Lengths stylist Robert Eaton from Russell Eaton Hair.  Robert and the team applied GL Tapes and expertly styled each look, creating stunningly natural and effortless transformations.

Inspired by our latest campaign, Hair Like You, the relevance of the colours within 2019 fashion and hair trends, Colours of 2019 was created to demonstrate the hottest trends of 2019, as well as illustrating our main pillars which embody everything we do:





The additional colours means we now have over 80 unique base, fashion, rooted and flowstrand shades which means that no matter your hair colour, Great Lengths will be sure to blend seamlessly with your own hair or add colour without the use of dyes or chemicals.

Colour 36, Deep Plum is a gorgeously toned and vibrant plum shade. The look was completed by Robert and his team, here’s how they achieved it:  ‘To create the look, we applied a full head of colour and toners using Wella Colour Touch. This ensured the colour blended seamlessly with the new Deep Plum base shade from Great Lengths. Once the colour was complete, we began to apply GL Tapes to create volume and length whilst ensuring the hair remained as natural looking as possible.  Our aim was to create a one length bob with depth and shine, which showed off the new addition to the Great Lengths colour range in a great light.  We applied 8 GL Tapes in 35cm of length through the sides of our models hair, then blended the extensions with the model’s natural hair and cut to a blunt bob, then straightened to style.’

The colour perfectly suits the style and Robert also comments on his inspiration behind the look: ‘Textured, a-line and blunt cut bobs have remained a statement and predominant hairstyle throughout 2019 and this trend doesn’t seem to be going any time soon. Deep Plum is a bold colour choice and we loved experimenting and creating the final look using GL Tapes.  We were all extremely pleased with the end result’.

We will be announcing a new video each month on our GL blog and also on our social channels so make sure to keep up to date by following us on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
