The festive-wedding season is a great excuse to try something you’ve always wanted to, but have never found the right time or occasion. If the adrenalin rush of getting dressed and looking your best doesn’t motivate you to go for it, we don’t know what will.

However when it comes to hair colour, as with every new trend, there’s some skepticism involved.

So, if you’re uncertain or need a nudge, we’ve got all your questions answered by a hair expert. Read on as we’ve rounded up the latest trends, backed by expert-approved tips and tricks. 

1. Hair colours to experiment with this season

There are tons of brands out there offering various kinds of hair colours and treatments. We know how intimidating it could get to pick something that suits just you, especially if you’re a beginner. But fret not!

We got Yushika Jolly Raghuvanshi, Founder and CEO of Paradyes, a semi-permanent hair colour brand, to spill hair colour and care secrets that will make the transition smooth and easy for you. Find out more as you read on.

2. What are some of the hottest hair colour trends this season?

For this season, I think money piece highlights and underlights are quite in trend. I’ve seen a lot of people do it.

Money pieces are great since they frame your face and bring depth to your hair.

Underlights are great to carry too, especially if you’re looking for hair colours that are not in-your-face.They’re subtle and hidden. So, you get to decide when and how much to flaunt!

3. What are some hair colours that would go well with festive/wedding looks? 

Definitely warm colours such as red, pink or purple – these are classic hair colours to pull off with your festive looks, but I’ve seen a lot of people embrace cool colours such as blue, violet and aqua this season.

4. What are some Dos and Don’ts to keep in mind before colouring your hair?

There are a lot of technical factors that come into play before colouring your hair such as the amount of pre-lightening one needs to do. And for every colour there’s a different level.

Do check the pre-lightening level your hair will need before going for the colour of your choice. Don’t forget to oil your hands, face and hairline before applying the colour, to help get rid of remnants easily.

Adding on to the professional’s tips – consider your hair texture as different colours absorb and reflect differently. Take expert opinions whenever you need to and make sure you have the right tools and techniques if you’re going DIY.

5. What are some post-colour tips you could share with our readers?

Deep conditioning and oiling are your best friends post colour. Oiling makes your colour fade faster but it’s really crucial for hair health. I personally do it and I would recommend you to do it too. Deep conditioning is essential post shampoo. Avoid heat as much as you can. Always use a heat protection serum if you plan on using any heat styling hair tools.

6. What are some DIY hair colour ideas for people looking for a quick makeover?

Semi-permanent hair colours or bold colours require bleaching, which is a relatively long process as compared to colouring. It requires pre-lightening your hair and then depositing the colour.

If you’re looking for a quick DIY hair colour idea, you could use bleached hair extensions, colour those and clip them onto your hair for a quick and easy DIY makeover this season.

You could also switch up the colours as per your wish. Extensions are a quick and easy way to introduce colour to your otherwise boring black hair.

7. What advice do you have for beginners looking to colour their hair?

Research well and find references of the colour you’re looking for. See what type of pre-lightening or level your hair needs to be at, to achieve that colour.

First timers, seek professional help for bleaching because it can be a bit tough and intimidating as opposed to professionals who already know the hacks. Colouring is an easier process, comparatively, and you can DIY or with a friend – it could be a fun bonding activity!


Hair colour is a bold and fun way of self-expression and there are several pigments you could experiment with. So, whether you’re a beginner looking for tips or you just want to switch up your routine, this article should guide you just in time for the festive or upcoming wedding season! So, go on and indulge in the biggest trends of 2021 hair colour trends. Don’t forget to share your looks with us!
