Perk Up Your Look With Color

January 18 2017

Let’s face it – we’re in the deep, dark depths of winter at the moment, and we will stay right here for the next several weeks. While there is certainly some cold weather fun to be had, there’s also that post-holiday let down that adds to the chill in your bones. Fortunately there’s an easy pick-me-up waiting for you at the salon – a new hair color.

Now, you can certainly opt for a new all-over color, but if you just want a bit of a flutter, why not try out some of these popular highlighting techniques we’re seeing? They can be much more subtle than an all-over color as they grow out, and they’ll let you branch out and be daring without taking a big leap. Plus they can add dimension and movement to your style without resorting to more cutting and reshaping.

One tried and true highlight technique is ombré. It comes from the French word for shading, and it’s been popular for quite some time now. While the traditional ombré highlight goes from darker roots to lighter tips giving a sun kissed feel to tone and color, we’re now seeing just the opposite. Lighter roots and darker tips can really work to highlight and brighten the facial region with a halo effect.

More traditional highlighting and lowlighting techniques are also becoming multidimensional. Rather than sticking to just a single highlight tone, colorists are using a range of tones strategically painted into hairstyles to add specific movement and texture. And these tones can be as subtle or daring as you like. You can opt to stay within a specific color spectrum or branch out to include virtually any color of the rainbow. Plus, your colorist will apply these colors in precise locations that will play up the features you most want to emphasize.
