I am no stranger to experimenting with hair color. I have sported every colour there is for as long as I can remember! Reds to blonde’s to cooper. This time around, I wanted to out grow the colour, more so out with the old!
I go by this one rule – “If you want to change your life, start by changing your Hair.”
I was way to eager, to change my hair colour. Finally, all that patience paid off. I got to try the trendiest hair colour of the year L’Oréal Professionnel’s range of INOA Mochas. #MochaMania has been the most sort after colour around the world especially in India, as it compliments our skin tone. The delicious Mocha is the perfect blend, and the soft yet cooler tone of brown suit the Indian skin. With expert guidance, the contouring and colour technique enhances the facial features. MOCHAS – the obsession of the year. Seen on hair of models on the ramp across fashion capitals, on actresses like Eva Green, Ema Thompson and Anne Hathaway in Hollywood as well as in commercials of the most fashion-forward brands, MOCHA is undeniably the go-to colour for hair right now. At the forefront of setting this trend is world leader in professional HAIR COLOUR – L’Oréal Professionnel. The brand introduced 4 new shades of MOCHA under its no-ammonia portfolio – INOA (4.8, 5.18, 7.18 and 8.8) and Majirel Cool Cover (4.8, 5.8, 6.8, 7.8, 8.8).
My hair as you can see (Before) “au naturale“
I had the best hair experts to get my hair coloured this time around. I received an invite from Ricky Tam, Salon Director of Rossano Ferretti at Ritz Carlton, Bangalore. Shiva Murugeshan, Hair Stylist/Colorist at Rossano Ferretti was all set to be the artist for the day and I his muse. I was at luck that I had Loreal Expert Ching Boi, Regional Technical Manager of South India L’Oréal Professional present too.
I have a diamond face shape, and hence we went in for the #MochaBalayage. To even out the hair colour and conceal grey’s (yes I am growing wiser) my hair roots were set to to a darker brown.
Hair Experts analyze my tresses and begin the transformation process
Post hair wash and blow dry, my hair got divided up into sections and set for the #Mochabalayage, contouring hair colour technique that gives a natural look. The colours used are Golden Beige (8.31) and Toffee Cream (7.23)
Did you know L’Oréal Professionnel INOA Mochas are ammonia-free and nourishes the hair due to the revolutionary Oil Delivery System (ODS2)?
After about 40 minutes or so, my hair was rinsed out but conditioned with a power dose to lock in the colour and protect it with conditioning masque.
My hair is almost ready, and before I show off the colour, its time for a quick blow dry and style. I had none other than Ricky Tam take over.
It is visible on dark hair and has a Sun-kissed effect colour. This bespoke colour is definitely tailored to suit the Indian skin tone. It is the perfect brown hair colour. For those looking to try and change your look, I would highly recommend the Mocha range. With hair experts you have nothing to fear. I leave you with this quote “Amazing hair is not by accident, it is by appointment.”
