We often talk about hair colour and hairstyles as two completely different things; but the key to really stunning hair is when these two components work together. After all, there’s no point having the perfect ponytail if your highlights are hidden or wearing your hair in a slicked back bun if your regrowth hasn’t been tended to in months.

When you nail the colour and the style at the same time – it’s a good hair day. And a good hair day means extra confidence, self-assurance and sass.
So take note from the following three celebs and learn how to copy their colour and style for a kick-ass hair combo.
DREW BARRYMORE: RED & WAVY
We still haven’t recovered from Drew’s jaw dropping red waves back in 2012. This colour suits a fair skin tone perfectly and the waves are ideal for showing off such a rich colour, while delicately framing the face.
John Frieda’s Precision Foam Colour in Dark Red Brown is the ideal at-home colour for mimicking Drew’s spectacular shade. As for styling, part the hair down the middle and curl small sections one-by-one using a curler like the VS Sassoon Curl Secret. Once the hair has cooled, brush through the curls to loosen them into waves and then finish with John Frieda FRIZZ-EASE® Secret Weapon® Finishing Crème to add shine and smooth flyaways.
DAISY LOEW: BRUNETTE & VOLUMINOUS
The voluminous half-up-half-down ‘do Daisy is rocking is proof that brunette doesn’t mean boring. The height from the up-do eliminates any signs of limpness, while the chocolate tones in her ends livens up her overall colour, so it’s not just a case of bland ‘ol block colour.
You don’t have to go in-salon to achieve a lively brunette shade like Daisy’s. John Frieda’s Multi-Tonal Precision Foam Colour in Dark Cool Espresso Brown will enhance the tones naturally found in your hair, to help you achieve a subtle variation in colour. To create Daisy’s heightened up-do, divide the hair into two parts (top and bottom) and place a Lady Jayne Volume Styl’r underneath the top half to add some lift. Smooth your hair over the Volume Styl’r and secure in place with some bobby pins, before adding texture to the remaining lengths using John Frieda Frizz-Ease® Curl Reviver Styling Mousse.
KATE BOSWORTH: BLONDE & BOUNCY
Behold the power of a bouncy side part. Kate’s golden colour looks simply spectacular thanks to her side swept locks. The volume achieved from a side part also ensures darker roots don’t look greasy, while the outward nature of the curls draw attention to the shiny blonde lengths.
Kate’s natural golden colour can be achieved at home using John Frieda’s Precision Foam Colour in Medium Natural Blonde. To create such a voluminous side part, apply John Frieda Luxurious Volume Volume Building Mousse to the roots of your side part, sweeping it through the larger section of hair, towards your mid-lengths. Use a heat styler like the ghd eclipse to curl the ends outwards and set with hairspray.
