“Current and future trends are always at the forefront of our education in salon. We are still seeing colour primarily resembling natural, highlighted tones. Particularly, a 90s bright face frame is coming back in trend but relatively darker in the back and is a look even Beyonce has been embracing of late,” Luu says. “The secret to our hair colour longevity and radiance, is the in-salon Kérastase Fusio-Dose treatment. It is a tailored treatment that instantly transform the hair and last for up to six weeks between appointments.” And the best part?

Notorious for turning a random encounter into a three-hour conversation and running across streets to pat a dog, Dinu is a curious girl who loves a good story.
