New Structure Pigment Pencils


Bring out your inner artist and use your hair as the canvas with STRUCTURE Pigment Pencils. Never has colouring your hair been so much fun and they make Christmas stocking fillers!

New STRUCTURE Pigment Pencils are a stroke of genius and glide effortlessly over hair strands to deposit vibrant, statement making pops of colour and are available in three shades— PURPLE VELVET, FASHION FUCHSIA and BLUE CHEER.

Each shade can be used on all hair types and work on both light and dark hair. The lighter the hair, the more vibrant and visible the shade will be. Colour will wash out after one shampoo (two shampoos may be needed for more porous hair). The Pigment Pencils will not run in the rain. Work one shade at a time or use all three for a multi-coloured effect.


How to Get Kim and Khloe’s Beautiful Blonde Tresses!

When a Kardashian changes her hair, it’s big news, but when Kim Kardashian becomes a blonde, it’s an event.

The hair colour artist responsible for Kim’s latest transformation is JOICO Celebrity Hair Colorist George Papanikolas. He reveals that he performed the makeover over the course of two days at the home of Kim’s mother, Kris Jenner. “I’ve been colouring Kim’s hair for over a year now and she’s wanted to go blonde almost from the beginning,” says George. Her inspiration? “Balmain Spanish Vogue models,” he admits.
