Hair Color Trends
Shadowing: Inspired by the mysterious color palette this technique involves strategically placing deeper colors under lighter pieces, in areas of the hair around the head. The areas are selected to make the hair look lit in a dim blue light.
*Pro Tip- Your lightest and darkest shade should be at least 3 levels different, and your dark section should be 3 times bigger than the light. Apply these sections back to back, and feather the ends lightly with the dark shade using heavy saturation on the top to middle, and the lighter shade use more saturation on the middle to ends. Rinse the lightener first and emulsify the entire thing with the left over dark mixture for 1-3 minutes or until desired tone is reached.
Paneling: Panels of leather, suede and fringe rocked the runways, and we take it one step further with hair. This technique can give you a fun pop of color just around the face. Its a great way to deepen up before going all out, or stop there for a perfect happy medium!
*Pro Tip- Apply base color and comb down 1-3 inches from the scalp. Section out the front in a triangle section from the apex to the recession line and clip away. Saturate the ends on the entire back and underneath section with the base color. Drop down the triangle, and free hand balayage or color melt using lightener.
Incognito: A way to tone down your signature blonde hair that kept you in trouble all summer long. Transition with the colors of fall, this soft progression from front to back is this seasons new way to ombre.
*Pro Tip- Apply a deeper base color around the entire new growth with clean thin sections. Take a radial parting from ear to ear, 1 inch underneath the control point, pull through the base color. Use Diagonal 1/2 inch sections and slowly saturate less distance from the root with the dark color, and saturate more distance from the ends to the root using the lightener. Front most section should be the brightest, and less root.
