The opening words of Robert Eaton of Russell Eaton Salons UK at the Wednesday 13 January instalment of the Hairdressers Journal Live Upskills Series confirms what some of us – and we are In the Pynck about it – already know: professional hair in tones of grey from icy blue to slate have been sweeping the Internet platforms long enough by now to be recognised as an essential in modern beauty.
