Forgive me for a moment while I go full on fan girl. It’s just, when you see actress Kaya Scodelario’s locks transform at the hands of the breathtakingly talented team at Neville   – you pay attention. Why and how were her locks transformed you cry!?  Well, luckily for you I’ve got you all the insider gossip – and the exact method on how to re-create this gorgeous violet Ombreyage for yourself! Move aside dip dye – there’s a cool, new, celeb endorsed ‘do’ in town.

So what’s the story?

A Step-By-Step Guide To Achieving The Look:
1. Using L’Oreal Platinum high lift with 30 volume, start from the back, take a horizontal section of hair moving up towards the top of the head. Mixing the ombre and balayage techniques to avoid having a stripy result.
2. Leave the colour to develop under heat for 30 minutes to give a clean base of 9.
3. Once the ends are lifted, shampoo and towel dry the hair before applying the violet colour for 15 minutes. Then rinse the colour.
4. Use a blow dry lotion to prep the hair and give it some hold before proceeding to do a St Barths blowdry for a smooth and relaxed wave.
5. Take small sections of the hair and using a small to medium brush, curl the hair coming back away from face.
