Hair color is a trend
Although blonde, in all its variants, continues to be the most requested color in the hair salon, there are a series of colors that they’re going to have to share their reign with.
Pantone chose it as the color of 2019. It’s the coolest and most elegant evolution of Honey Rose which was so popular a year or so ago. The technique consists of combining shades of peach with golden tones to brighten the facial features. Although it softens all skin tones, more pink can be added to create a cooler shade or more orange to create a warmer tone.
When it comes to eye color, the golden hue really brings out blue and green eyes, and in the case of brown eyes, it gives them a warmer feel.
Without a doubt, a look oozing with personality on all fronts.
Yes, strange but true. Black in its most intense version, is one of the leading trends. Jet black with subtle touches of blue will create a deeper tone that’s rich and full of life and light. This trick also gives hair a glassy sheen when light reflects upon it.
Beware! Black hair doesn’t flatter all skin tones. It really looks great on olive skin tones.
We saw the color at this year’s Oscars ceremony worn by Charlize Theron, who surprised us with an A-MAZ-ING new look, and the “mother of dragons” Emilia Clarke. We’re telling you now, you’re going to be seeing a lot of chocolate hair colors. The key to its success resides in its elegant feel that can adapt to the style of pretty much anyone. You only have to combine it with golden or lighter hues to create more volume, texture, movement and body.
This year is all about extremes. Dark shades are softened with gentle highlights that reflect light onto the skin and hair. This type of hair color is all about mixing dark brown tones with lighter ones, to add warmth in a natural manner.
Our Top 5 hair colors wouldn’t be complete without giving blond a mention. This year, blondes are less yellow and more cream, it’s a variation of platinum that has an increasing number of followers. It’s the ideal alternative for brunettes who want to lighten their hair to go blonde. However, that said, we do recommend a gradual progression starting with some balayage highlights that don’t reach the roots. This way you can achieve a gradual and more harmonious transition.
