Woodlights, the new trend set to dethrone balayage?
Natural is the main aim of this latest trend in hair color. From this concept comes a new kind of highlights, woodlights, which attempt to recreate the effect of the grain in wood. Will they be the new balayage ?
Everyone is talking about woodlights, the new concept in hair color that aims to imitate the effect of light on hair when resting on wood and the changing colors produced by the grain.
How are woodlights created?
As we mentioned before, the idea is to create a natural hair color that combines strands in different shades to create the effect of subtle light and dark areas which simulate the effect of sunlight reflecting off wood. The key to these highlights/lowlights resides in the hair color technique, as prior bleaching isn’t required, only hair color tones that are lighter or darker than the natural base color.
To get the desired effect, section off each strand and apply color from the root to the end in fine sections. The tone should be very natural in order to create a gentle lift as the sun might produce in the summer.
Add lighter tones to the ends and areas around the face to brighten and lift and darker tones to give volume and movement to fine or limp hair.
Ideal for first-timers
This hair color is very subtle and delicate and so perfectly suited to virgin hair and people looking for a gentle change or a subtle new look. With a combination of lighter and darker shades we can boost natural beauty without significantly altering the client’s look or creating something that may mean a radical change they’re not used to.
