  • We have all missed the salons this year. Yes, some of us have been desperate for a trim, but it’s our colour that’s arguably taken on the biggest struggle.

    Thankfully, there are some incredible products out there that have helped us through and they’ve won awards…

    Best Root Retoucher

    Winner: Batiste Dry Shampoo & A Hint of Colour Range, £2.99

    Batiste Dry Shampoo & A Hint of Colour Range - Marie Claire UK Hair Awards 2021

    Isn’t blonde hair just the best? But aren’t tell-tales dark roots the worst? To keep you going in between appointments, you need something that’s quick and effective. Nothing is going to perfectly replicate freshly coloured strands, but this Batiste Dry Shampoo does the job. So many women have been using dry shampoo to disguise their regrowth for years, but these added hints of colour is exactly what’s needed.

    Runner up: Color Wow Root Cover Up, £28.50

    Best DIY Colour Product

    Winner: Josh Wood Colour Miracle System

    Josh Wood Colour Miracle System - Marie Claire UK Hair Awards 2021

    It is of no surprise to us that Josh Wood Colour is the winner of this category. There is no one that we trust more with hair colour. This isn’t a transformation set, this is an at-home colour kit that perfectly covers your greys, nourishes your lengths and adds tone that is so rarely seen outside of the salon. Bravo.

    Runner up: Clairol Nice’ n Easy Crème, £6.49

    Best Creative Colour Dye

    Winner: Schwarzkopf LIVE Ultra Brights, £5.79

    Schwarzkopf Live Ultra Brights - Marie Claire UK Hair Awards 2021

    You can always rely on Schwarzkopf to offer up the biggest and boldest colours. They are the ones you turn to when you wake up one morning and think, ‘Today, I want to have firecracker red hair.’ Their semi-permanent colour range is vast and playful, and it allows you to experiment with your hair without any permanent regrets.

    Runner up: Davines Alchemic Creative Conditioner, £22.50
