27 Oct TRUE Blue – Embrace the Calm During the Storm
Embrace the Calm During the Storm
Classic Blue is the Pantone Colour of 2020; elegant in its simplicity and imprinted in our psyches as a restful colour, blue is seen to bring a sense of peace and tranquillity to the human spirt.
Blue is the ultimate colour of calm and during the winter months, it is here to stay. Seen as a restorative colour and often praised for its ability to signify tranquillity, it is no wonder that blue is the colour we are turning to during these uncertain times.
Blue has proven psychological benefits, reflecting deeper feelings of survival and resilience. There is no doubt that the colour signifies harmony, serenity and security, but when we think of blue hair, our mind conjures up the opposite. Blue hair is seen as wild, rebellious and eccentric; but this Winter, we want to show you that blue can also be a subtle, beautiful and alluring anchor to embrace during the storm.
Dare to be different? This all over colour technique creates the perfect statement colour and perfectly encapsulates the ultimate trend of 2020; colour from root to tip that is consistent.
A soft injection of Pacific Blue acts as lowlights to enhance textured hair. This technique is perfect for brunettes, as the darker backdrop creates a beautiful yet simple finished look. The lowlights are placed throughout the hair to enhance the focal points of the haircut.
Want to embrace the True Blue trend without commitment? This subtle hue of Powder Blue is achieved with an all-over toning technique; this perfect pop of colour will only last for a whirlwind weekend.
This is the ideal technique if you have a full fringe. A crescent shaped section of hair is taken from underneath the fringe, pre-lightened and toned to a Midnight Blue. The dark base colour works as a beautiful setting, giving the hair a sophisticated feel. The colour placement in the fringe will also emphasise the eyes, making them all the more captivating!
As we all know, blue is an artificial tone that is not naturally present in our hair. This means that even though our talented Stylists can easily tone our hair blue, it is important to use a blue or violet pigment based conditioner in your homecare routine to maintain the colour and ensure that warmth won’t return to the hair…when warmth returns it deposits a greenish tone to the colour…which isn’t ideal; unless of course, the Pantone Colour of 2021 is green!
To further enhance the longevity of the colour blue, ask your Stylist for a Colour Saver Mask; a blue colour shot is placed into the conditioner to enhance your tone and maintain your colour for longer.
Are you ready to embrace the calm during the storm?
