THE BLEND TREND
The ombre trend is here to stay, but this season the look will be more seamless, says Chinney Yeap from Buoy Salon and Spa in Wellington. There’s definitely no place for stripes or severe two-tone balayage, it should look like multi-tonal natural hair. The new buzzword this winter is ‘sombre’, “which is a soft, subtle ombre that typically blends higher up to achieve a more natural look,” says Yeap. “However, the ends remain light, with only subtle hints of dimensional darkness going through.” For a look that will grow out subtly, ask for a number of shades and tones in the same colour family to be weaved throughout your hair. Whether you are blonde, brunette or a redhead, this will add shimmering dimension and texture to your tresses.
Not quite golden and not quite platinum, this season’s take on blonde rests somewhere in the middle.
