How to Wear Yellow This Season

Love the vibrant colour but not sure how to pull it off? Here’s how to wear yellow.

Yellow might be one of those colours that have traditionally been thought of as tricky to wear. But considering the colour yellow is associated with creativity and happiness, it’s definitely a colour that we want to see more of in our wardrobe this season.

Here are our favourite tips for how to wear yellow this coming season.

TRY YELLOW ACCESSORIES

If the thought of jumping in the deep end and embracing a head-to-toe canary yellow look puts you off the cheeriest of colours, start by working some yellow-toned accessories into your wardrobe.  Thinking about investing in some yellow arm candy? Our current pick is this vibrant little number by D LY P.

EMBRACE PRINTS IN YELLOW

Whether it is a bold head-turning print or something slightly more understated, opting for a print in our favourite vibrant hue is a great way to wear yellow. Dainty florals prints in yellow are perfect for daywear and if you’re looking for something other than a little black dress for special occasions that might be in the calendar, turn to the runway for all the inspiration you need to wear yellow after the sun goes down.

FIND A SHADE THAT SUITS YOU

Not sure whether you’re more of a pastel yellow or fluorescent yellow fan? Fortunately this season there’s an abundance of different shades of yellow coming through in current collections. If you’re still not sure where to start, think about picking a shade that will complement your skin tone. All shades of yellow will flatter darker skin tones, while medium and olive skin tones are better suited to piquant bright shades. If you’re on the fairer side you might want to start out with softer pastel hues.

The 6 Healthy Hair Commandments You Need to Know

If the last few weeks has left your locks in need of some serious TLC, now is the perfect time to work on getting your tresses back to their former glossy glory. If you’re not sure where to start, ghd ambassador Zoë Irwin’s has shared her six healthy hair commandments that will help nurture and repair your hair in no time.

MASSAGE SCALP YOUR

If you want healthy, shiny hair, paying attention to the health of your scalp is essential.“Massaging your scalp daily for 10 minutes has an incredible effect on the hair,” says Irwin. “It will relieve tension and increase the blood flow for thicker, healthier, longer hair. And it’s so easy to do!’’

TREATMENT LAYERING

Don’t fret if you can’t get to the salon for a treatment, you can recreate the experience at home. “Supercharge your hair by layering hair treatments,” says Irwin. “This technique is equivalent to a facial but for hair. Simply apply a mask and leave it for 15 minutes, rinse off and towel dry, then repeat twice until you have used three masks in total,” she says.

“The secret is to start with a protein mask which helps to bind broken fibres together and strengthen fragile, damaged hair. Then follow with a conditioning mask and finish with a colour mask to retain and enhance colour and shine.”

FREEZE DRY YOUR BLOW DRY

While it can tempting to blast your hair on the hottest setting Irwin’s advice is to do the opposite. “Turn down the heat on your hairdryer and improve the condition of your hair.” She recommends ghd’s new helios hairdryer which gets the job done without damaging hair with high temperatures. “The powerful airflow means that you don’t need to rely on heat for drying your hair, the power itself is enough. Always flash cool each section of your hair and dry with a round bristle brush to add moisture and shine.’’

BIGGER BETTER IS

Brushing your hair can help promote scalp health too explains Irwin. “Swap small brushes for big paddle brushes.” She recommends the ghd Paddle Brush.  “As you sweep the ghd paddle brush along the scalp it will lightly massage and increase blood circulation to the scalp, helping to stimulate healthy hair growth. Plus, the wide surface means that more hair is being brushed at once, so less brushing is needed overall and thus less stress is put on the hair.’’ 

COLD RINSE
It might be a little tricky to do in winter, but a blast of cold water could help keep locks shiny. “By rinsing or washing your hair with cold water, you close and seal the hair cuticles which helps add extra shine and combat frizz. So always turn your shower to cold for a quick cold rinse before getting out.”

GENTLY DOES IT

“When hair is wet it is fragile and vulnerable to breakage so brush wet hair very gently,” explains Irwin. Rather than tug at it with your usual brush, Irwin says it’s important to work with the right tools. “Use a wide-tooth comb like the ghd detangling comb. The wide tooth design allows for delicate detangling on damp hair which is fragile and more prone to damage.”
