Hit Refresh: Update your Hair for Spring

Spring has officially sprung, and it’s time to rescue your hair from the harsh conditions of winter. Locks feeling brittle, dry or simply looking dull? Hit refresh and try something new with your look – whether that’s adding colour or investing in a new holy grail haircare product, there’s sure to be a quickfire way to spruce up your look this spring.


Colour is Key

The turn of a new season always welcomes new colour. Spring is the perfect time to embrace lighter, more vibrant tones and create a natural, softer look. Think golden biscuit blondes, rose browns, opal candyfloss shades and beautiful balayage blends.

Feeling daring and want to amp up your colour to new heights this spring? Striking ruby reds and bold jewel tones will also be a big hit. Think vibrant flame red hair, as sported by Strictly Come Dancing Star and our newest GL Lovely, Dianne Buswell, who’s spoken to us about how her red hair reflects her fiery personality:

I’m a dancer, and my personality on the dancefloor when I perform is very fiery. I was known as a firecracker, so I decided to make my hair flame red and I’ve never looked back! It has given me a unique look, and I get comments on my colour daily. For anybody thinking about going red – I would always say do it. It makes you feel vibrant all the time. The upkeep can be a little more than normal colours, but it’s worth it.”

Don’t worry, it doesn’t have to be so daunting changing your colour. With over 60 shades available, the Great Lengths colour offering is extensive. With everything from beautifully blended base shades, to fashion colours, ombres, balayages and pastel colours, it’s easy to seamlessly integrate colour in to your look with Great Lengths.

New Nourishment

After a harsh winter, your hair is probably feeling dry and brittle. Add some much-needed love and moisture back into your locks, and invest in a product designed to nourish and add shine.

The Great Lengths Hair Mask Extra Rich is perfect for the job – an intensive conditioner for very dry hair, it combines both pro-keratin and pro-vitamin B5 to leave locks lusciously soft. Apply after shampoo, and leave in for 5-6 minutes to allow the mask to rebuild the structure of your hair and bring balance to your hair and scalp.

Texture, Texture, Texture

Long, short, cropped, bobbed. Whether you’re loving longer locks or shorter styles, texture is key this season. Laid back waves and beachy, natural textures will be the go-to.

Although made to appear effortless, looks like this can sometimes take a little bit more prepping. Voluminous hair is key for creating texture, adding body and injecting fullness to the overall look. Cue Great Lengths – adding some bonds at the front of your hair to fill out sparse sides, or some GL Tapes to thicken out the back of the hair and thinning ends, could be the perfect solution.

Don’t forget to turn to the beachy salt sprays and texturizing spritzers and get your curling wands at the ready.
