No half measures – go bold with block color

Ombre, sombre, balayage, strobing,'s hard to keep track of all the different hair color techniques these days. Often, however, beauty is all about simplicity, which is why we should never forget the good old classic: block color! Here's how to go all-in with one head-turning color.

Benefits of block color

Mono-tone is far from monotonous and, instead, can make a real statement. Think fiery copper, adventurous pastel, daring platinum and even brave blue: there's nothing boring about them! Plus, in L'Oréal Professionnel's best-selling INOA hair color range, each of the 134 shades offers glossy shimmer that gives life, volume and personality to your hair. Ask your hair colorist what shade would best suit your skin tone, hairstyle and personal preferences.

Caring for colored hair

To keep your block color vibrant and healthy-looking, it's important to adopt the right haircare routine. Your first stop is the right shampoo and conditioner to prevent color fade-out and damage. We recommend the Vitamino Color A OX haircare collection by Serie Expert, which also includes the Color 10 in 1 spray – a heat protectant that shields against frizz, helps detangle, adds shine and improves softness. A weekly mask, such as L'Oréal Professionnel's Masque from the Mythic Oil range, is also a good idea to help retain moisture and repair day-to-day damage.

How to style block-colored hair

You want everyone to appreciate the power of your block-colored hair, so our go-to look is an in-your-face, straight and glossy finish. We especially love blunt ends which, when paired with a bold color, really make a statement and give hair that covetable controlled swish. Alternatively, you could opt for some subtle waves to encourage the light to play off the different angles, letting light bounce off the curves which creates a gorgeously multi-tonal impression.

Keeping things simple has never looked so colorful!
