Rita Ora and Michelle Williams are no strangers to the ice-cool trend, however there’s a lot of maintenance involved to look after this highly-processed hair colour.

“To look after platinum blonde hair, I recommend using products with a violet base,” says hairstylist Elyston Hayden. “Purple shampoos, conditioners and masks will erase red, orange and yellow tones instantly, so you’re left with salon-perfect results every time you wash your hair at home.”
