There is nothing we love more than treating ourselves to a pamper.

While some may be putting their hand to gel manicures, or enjoying a night in with a face mask on, others may be wanting to take their beauty skills to the next level and dye their hair.

A spokesperson for haircare brand, Knight and Wilson, has revealed the label has seen 12000% rise in hair dyes sales in March alone.

This huge uplift in sales is across their Colour Freedom Vibrants, Pureplex Colours range and Metallic Glory collection.

While some may be chomping at the bit to cover up their roots or for a full colour change, especially as salons have closed down during the coronavirus pandemic, others may be looking to experiment with a new shade.

Even celebrities have jumped on the bandwagon, and that may also be the isolation inspiration some may wish to follow.


In recent weeks Holly Willoughby and Hilary Duff decided to take matters into their own hands and dyed their locks themselves using pre-made kits during lockdown.

Social media users are also turning their homes into salons and are showing their makeovers on various online platforms.

TikTok has seen the tag #QuarantineHair receive over 395,000 views, while the Instagram tag #CoronaHair brings up over 20,000 posts.

While some may be looking to dye their hair, highlight their locks, cover up their roots, or even dye their facial hair, there are a whole host of dyes to buy online.

We have found the best places to buy hair colouring kits online, to make your shopping spree that little bit easier.
