Want to turn heads with a stunning hair transformation? Ash highlights offer a captivating contrast to black hair, enhancing your overall look. In this guide, Linda Miller, a seasoned hairstylist, shares her insights on achieving smoky ash highlights and maintaining them for the long haul.

Choosing the Right Shade

Miller emphasizes the importance of selecting the right ash tone to complement your natural hair color. “For those with warm undertones, a green-based ash will provide a beautiful cool-toned finish,” she advises. On the other hand, individuals with cooler undertones should opt for pink-based ash tones.

Maintaining Ash Highlights

According to Miller, using a purple shampoo every few washes can help maintain the ashy hue. She recommends swapping your regular shampoo for a purple one, such as Fanola No Yellow Shampoo, and leaving it on for 5-10 minutes before rinsing.
