Hair Colour Services

Our expert hair colour technicians at Genesis Hair Salon in St Ives, Cambridge create beautiful and personalised hair colours for men and women.

We specialise in bespoke hair colour, whether that’s highlights, lowlights, ombre, balayage or the latest trending hair colours.

During the hair colour process, we can also use OLAPLEX™ hair conditioning treatment to add strength and restore damaged hair.

We offer a complimentary hair colour consultation to discuss any concerns you may have with your hair and will assess the colour options and techniques available.

Why not upgrade your service and book in for one of our luxury in salon treatments? Sit back, relax and unwind.

Our salon first floor is known as the ‘House of Colour’ where our colour technicians work their magic, creating sensational hair colour. Our guests visit us from far and wide to have their hair coloured by our colour experts in St Ives.

We have SIX Wella Master Colour Experts who have the highest qualification in colour. Two of these colour technicians are double degree qualified.

We can help you find the perfect hair colour – from classic blondes, reds and brunettes to top trending silver grey and rose gold. Our long-lasting permanent hair colours and temporary shades can be added to your hair to boost natural hair colour, give hair a better depth of colour and lots of shine.

Balayage & Ombre Hair Colour

Balayage is a French word that means ‘to sweep’ or ‘to paint’. We will create light and shade throughout your hair using a freehand motion to ‘paint’ highlights onto your hair.

As well as looking stunning, another benefit of the balayage technique is that it makes it much easier to grow out darker roots. Your hair colour specialist can adapt your balayage look to work with all hair types and tones. We can even add fashion colours for a bolder hair look.

Highlights & Lowlights

We can use highlights to brighten your hair or lowlights deepen your natural hair colour and add depth and tone. Depending on your requirements, we will advise you on how many foils you will need for your perfect hair colour result.

Blonde Hair Colours

From platinum blondes to ash blondes, golden blondes to sun-kissed balayage, we can find a blonde shade that suits you. Our hair colour designers will create a bespoke hair colour to suit your skin tone and sense of style.

Red Hair Colour Shades

Make a statement with a bold red hair colour or add interest with some copper or auburn highlights or red-tipped balayage. We can find the perfect red hair colour that works with your skin tone and hairstyle.Brunette, Black & Dark Hair Colours

Why not update your hair style with some caramel brown lowlights or opt for a chocolate brown/black hair colour? Adding deep, rich colours and a gloss to your hair can be a great way to make your hair super shiny.
