XP100's new creative shades - champagne rose & slate grey

The XP family has introduced 11 new creative shades across its Light Radiance and Intense Radiance collections. Salon Services colour experts, Zara Lynch and Rena Parrock, created two incredible shades that are trending right now - Champagne Rose and Slate Grey.

The first shade extension of the XP100 Light Radiance demi-permanent collection adds five shades that look to the 90s for inspiration. Channelling a grunge aesthetic with muses including Gwen Stefani and Courtney Love, slate grey, pearl blonde and chocolate brown hues see nostalgic looks get a runway-inspired update.

The second shade extension to the industry favourite XP100 Intense Radiance permament collection, adds six shades which channel the elements. Air, earth, fire and water inspire soft shades of sun kissed gold and rose beige which offer a subtle colour for a romantic feel.
