5 New Metallic Hair Colours Your Clients Will Love  - Available 2 March 2020!

One of the most successful new colour trends in Illumina finally arrives on South African shores.

Introducing Opal-Essence, a new shade family within ILLUMINA COLOR. Discover five shades without depth to give a metallic sheen with warm and cool light reflections.

Soft, subtle, shimmering… See metallic hair colour in a new light with our latest launch: the new Opal-Essence collection from Illumina Color. The range centres on light-reflecting hues that stand out for their sheer, milky and wearable finish, spanning every shade from metallic rose pink to burnished copper tones.

There are five colours in the collection, inspired by high shine looks hot off the catwalk, and they all boast a fresh, soft-focus effect your clients are going to love. Plus, as the hair moves, the multi-tonal shades actually shimmer under the light. If 2019 was the year of heavy metals, trust us: 2020 is going opalescent…

Silver Mauve

An intense violet hue with a silver sheen. If your client is currently sporting an icy blonde shade, this could be their new season update.

Chrome Olive

Bored of brassy blonde? Remove warm tones with this metallic olive green. It’s got a touch of silver chrome for a cool, light-reflective finish.

Platinum Lily:

Jazz up a pale blonde with this beige blush hue. The platinum finish keeps the shade feeling fresh.

Titanium Rose

The new rose gold. Take their shade into the new season with a touch of titanium. Perfect for adding a blush hue to blondes and brunettes.

Copper Peach

Great for light brunettes, this warm copper has a touch of metallic peach shine to warm up their shade.

Movement and Light

Taking the trend for high shine hues out of this world, Opal-Essence shades are specially formulated to glide over the surface of the hair, capturing both warm and cool light reflections. As a result, the shade looks at its most pure, with a milky metallic sheen to finish.

‘I love the flexibility I have when working with the new Opal-Essence shades,’

Andreas Kurkowitz, Wella Professionals Global Color Ambassador.

Special Effects

But aside from just looking great, these new metallic hair shades are also the perfect multi-taskers. Reduce existing warm tones in hair by smoothing Chrome Olive through lengths or apply Silver Mauve to remove brassy tones, the most neutralising colour in the collection.

Create different colour effects depending on your clients’ needs. For an even, opalescent shade, apply the formula to block colour, or for a multi-tonal effect, smooth over hair with pre-lightened sections. Opal-Essence shades can even be mixed with others in the Illumina Color range, opening up new colour opportunities to suit every shade and style.

With the new Opal-Essence collection, it’s always time to shine.
