The Transformative Effects of Hair Colour at DKUK in Peckham

Very few of us were born with fabulous hair colour and sometimes we just want to have a little fun and change up our look!  That's where hair colour comes in.  Whether you're looking for a subtle enhancement, want to disguise some grey hairs, or want to make a bold statement - hair colour is the answer!

Our colour technicians are highly skilled in all techniques from highlights and balayage to all-over tints and creative colours.  During a complimentary consultation, we can find out what you're after and even recommend some colours and looks that will suit you.  

Achieving a new look can boost your self-esteem and confidence, and even make you look a little younger!  Book your consultation by calling DKUK Hairdressers in Peckham on 0203 609 0920 or book online.

Please note:  We are a colour-responsible salon so you will need to come in for a quick allergy alert test 48 hours before your hair colour.  

Mirror-Less Haircuts

People go to the hair-salon for many reasons. One of the biggest reasons is to feel good about themselves. But only 10% of our clients said they enjoyed sitting in front of a mirror... which is why we are here for the rest of you! Instead, our clients sit in front of art in a calming and caring atmosphere.

Talk-Free Haircuts

We celebrate all personality types at DKUK, prioritising making everyone feel welcome and comfortable. There is never any pressure to be chatty. You can even book a ‘Talk Free Haircut’. During your consultation, the stylist will ask you how you would like your hair - but after that, your ears can relax!

Pay What You Can

New clients visiting us for the first time can either pay the usual amount for their service or opt for our Pay What You Can.  This is available on appointments booked Monday to Friday from 12-4pm and only with our stylist level.  Call 020 36090920 to book and please mention that you are a new client.



We are highly trained in highlighting techniques and can create a range of looks from natural, blended fine highlights to chunkier highlighted areas. 

Highlights are a great way to create an all-over blonde look from root to tip, evenly lifting the natural tone of your hair.

We recommend returning every 6-8 weeks so we can blend any regrowth into your highlights. Our highlighting service also includes a toner that works at refreshing all of the hair and keep your blonde looking vibrant. 

Adding Olaplex to your hair colour will ensure your hair remains healthy and strong throughout the lightening process.

If you are looking for a beautiful sun-kissed hair colour, let us introduce you to the wonderful world of balayage. 

Balayage is a low-maintenance alternative to highlights as it grows out subtly without a harsh root regrowth, although we always recommend a toner is applied every 5-6 weeks to keep the colour looking vibrant. Your balayage can then be refreshed once the lighter areas have grown out from around the face. 

If you've seen some images of balayage you love, remember to show them to your colour technician.  After discussing with you the look you desire, your technician will then be able to create a bespoke look which can be as subtle or bold as you desire.  Clever colour placement can even enhance your facial features and hairstyle.

We recommend Olaplex with all our colours especially when lightening the hair. Olaplex will protect your hair by rebuilding the bonds that are broken down during the chemical process.

Creative Hair Colour

Creative colours begin with lightening hair and then adding a vibrant colour on top such as pink, green, silver – the possibilities are endless! 

We can bleach the full head for all-over creative colours, just a panel for a statement look, or add colour on top of balayage or highlights.

Your technician will be able to advise on what is possible with your hair. It is a good idea to arrange a consultation so that your stylist can see your hair as it can take several appointments to lighten darker hair. 

It is important to note that creative colours fade to reveal the blonde base. There are ways to maintain this at home by purchasing products with pigment or one of our customised colour pots which are mixed specially for you.  As the lightening process stresses the hair, we always recommend adding Olaplex to the process to protect your locks.

Full Head Tint

A full head tint is used to darken or lighten all of the hair by a few shades - it will also cover grey hair.

Lightening the hair with a tint will depend on the natural colour of your hair. If the desired result is not achievable with a tint, we will advise the most suitable technique to achieve your hair goal. Remember, hair colour can sometimes be a journey which takes a few appointments to achieve the perfect result.

To maintain a full head tint we recommend coming back in for a root tint every 4-6 weeks depending on the speed of your root growth. Although tint is permanent, it can begin to fade and lose vibrancy which is why we also recommend frequent full-head top-ups.

Tints work well on all hair types and we always recommend adding Olaplex during the colouring process to protect the hair.
