What is Colour Contouring?

Colour Contouring is a customised colouring technique that carefully positions highlights and shadow tones (lowlights) in specific areas to accentuate or hide areas of the face and features. The stylist can create an individualised colour and colour placement specifically for you that will draw attention to the right areas and minimise others based on your face shape. Lowlights or Darker Tones will absorb the light and narrow or shorten the face and features whilst Highlights or Lighter Tones will reflect light and elongate them.

Will this look suit me?

Colour Contouring is entirely custom- designed for each individual client. As it is tailor made specifically for you it will definitely suit you no matter what your hair colour, length or texture.

What face shape do I have?

You have a Round Face if the length and width of your face is the same..

You have a Square Face if the length, width and and jawline are the same in terms of length.

You have a Rectangular Face if your face is longer than it is wide but with a defined jawline and broad forehead.

You have a Oblong Face if the length of your face is approximately more than 1.5 longer than wide with a broad forehead, cheekbones and jawline. Similar to a rectangle but softer edges.

You have a Diamond Face if your cheekbones are wider than your forehead and jawline

Will it look Natural?

To ensure a natural look choose colours that are no more than two shades darker (than your base colour) for lowlights and two shades lighter for your highlights.

Is it a high maintence style?

Not at all! This colouring technique is extremely low maintence as the application and the shades are very natural and any regrowth will blend softly.

VIVO Promise & No-Surprise Guarantee

Are there any extra charges?

All essentials like shampoo, head massage and styling are already included in the package price. However, if you have long (below shoulder) and/or very thick hair, an extra charge from $10 would apply to cover the cost of the additional colouring product or toner.

We will advise you of all additional costs before we start - or you don't have to pay the extra.

In addition, if you already have colour in your hair, we advise you to come in for a free 15 minute consultation. If colour correction or pre-lightening services are required our stylists can advise you of any aditional costs at the time of your consultation.
