Looking Ahead To Fall Color
It’s a transformative moment in hair color trends just now. The grand old tradition of single process hair color is well and truly dead. In its place rises the multi-faceted process of free hand hair painting, and this approach encompasses a huge range of techniques meant to bring out the best not only of what Mother Nature gave you but also what your colorist brings to the table. Here’s a sneak peek at what we’ll be seeing this fall.
You’ll still hear about techniques such as balayage and babylights, but the emphasis now will be on truly customizing your color service with the combination of colors and techniques that works best for you and your style. In general, the trend this fall seems to be keeping pace with the more natural looks we’ve been seeing this summer, the un-done look. For color services, this means carefully placing highlights to compliment your features as well as your style by bringing movement and depth through the careful placement of highlights. And curly hair will look fantastic with all-over strobing that literally makes hair dance in place. These are all low-maintenance techniques once you’ve made the initial commitment, and the grow-out stage is practically imperceptible.
There’s also a tendency to approach color choices the same way you would approach make up choices. Sometimes you’ll want something more subtle, and sometimes you want your style to shout, “Look at me!” For this bold approach, you’ll be seeing dark hair with deep blue and green highlights, and light hair with reds and oranges. Peek-a-boo techniques will also be huge, and they let you decide when to be bold and when to withhold. If you’re worried about the commitment with these statement colors, use a semi-permanent version that will wash out after ten or twelve shampoos. Your colorist will know just what to do.
