Dis­cover the hottest hair colours to wear for 2017!

Aveda in­tro­duced “eclipting” in 2016, a hair colour in­no­va­tion brought about by last year’s con­tour­ing craze. The brand’s Global Artis­tic Di­rec­tor, Michael Black, coined this face­flat­ter­ing tech­nique, which in­volves colour­ing the whole head with a darker base be­fore in­cor­po­rat­ing high­lights in spe­cific sec­tions to add depth to the hair, as well as to con­tour the face. The darker hair at the roots around the face gives the ap­pear­ance of a slim­mer jaw­line, and high­lights make the hair look more tex­tured and vo­lu­mi­nous. Con­trast­ing colours are cus­tomised for each in­di­vid­ual based on his/her fea­tures and un­der­tones. While balayage gives a more nat­u­ral and sub­tle gra­di­ent ef­fect, eclipting cre­ates a more obvious con­trast for added im­pact. Ac­cord­ing to Michael, “Colour can also be used to off­set the den­sity of your hair. If it’s thin, for ex­am­ple, lay­er­ing a deeper colour un­der­neath can cre­ate the il­lu­sion of full­ness.
