LAST year, it was all about ombre when it came to hair.

Then, celebrities like Khloe Kardashian stepped out with dip-dyed manes. Later, there was a wave of neon hues - think Katy Perry's electric-blue tresses, or Nicki Minaj's ever-changing, shockingly-coloured locks.

Now, the trend for colour has turned romantic and soft.

Think Kelly Osbourne, with her lilac locks, or Ellie Goulding, with her dusty-pink hair.

Mr Eugene Ong, artistic director of hair salon Urbanhair Ginrich at Tangs Orchard, said he has seen a 20 per cent rise in requests for unusual colours, such as rosy pink, compared to two years ago.

"Many Singaporeans today are more daring when it comes to colour," he said.

Why? Well, many are now more well-travelled, and they draw inspiration from fashion runways, he said.

And this year, nature-inspired looks mean that though the colour choice is still bold, the trend for shades is on the softer side of things.

For those who hesitate to go for a full head of coloured locks, fear not: Salons have new techniques that allow you to get the look, in subtler ways.

Mr Ong's salon uses the Aveda Full Spectrum Deep line, which has stylists create customisable colour for each client.

And the American line's new highighting techniques, such as colour waving, mimics natural light and shadow in hair and blends different shades. For instance, blending peach and copper shades creates something "subtly interesting, but wearable", said Mr Ong.

So, you can get soft-pink highlights, blended, say, into blonde. Even black or brunette hair can be broken up with soft pieces of pink to create a great textured look, said Mr Ian Michael Black, Aveda's global artistic director for hair colour.

He said: "Any woman can pull off this season's trend. Hair colour is about confidence, and wearing it with pride."

The Goldwell brand, which can be found only in professional salons, has come up with inspiring new looks for the season. Its Beautify collection, by its Color Zoom creative team from Australia, Taiwan and Britain, offers candy- coloured shades, and tones of royal purples and turquoise.

But those unconventional colours are mixed in with more moderate shades, like earthy browns. Austrian hairstylist Mario Krankl, a Goldwell Color Zoom Global Master, noted that Asians are embracing loud colours, but in light shades.

He said: "In this region, people are trendy and are always fashion-forward... You will be surprised to see a significant number with light colours, such as blonde, with soft pastel shades that create a beautiful watercolour effect."
