learn the lingo

Look (UK) - - FASHION -

Sam Bur­nett, KMS Global Style Coun­cil mem­ber and owner of Hare & Bone, de­bunks the sa­lon lingo you need to know…

Baby­lights ‘Mi­cro-fine high­lights that brighten up the hair­line and part­ing. They’re per­fect for fram­ing the face and soft­en­ing roots.’

Fade-out om­bre ‘This is a “grad­ual gra­di­ent” of colour, from one shade to an­other. It nor­mally in­volves three to four tones through­out the hair, rang­ing from dark hues into blonde.’

Bronze ‘A mix­ture of blonde, brown, caramel and cop­per hues, creat­ing a bronze fin­ish. It has the per­fect mix­ture of warm and metal­lic tones to re­flect light, creat­ing a glossy, three-di­men­sional ef­fect.’

Blo­r­ange ‘Set to be one of the big­gest colours of the sea­son. As the name sug­gests, it’s a mix­ture of orange, pink, rose gold and peach tones on a blonde base.’

nude ‘A com­bi­na­tion of matte, nat­u­ral and neu­tral tones that can be used across blondes and brunettes. A shade to suit every­one.’

ice Blonde ‘Think of this as an arc­tic blonde com­bin­ing white, ash and cool tones. It’s a bright, clean and fresh blonde.’

Chris­tel Lundqvist, founder of STIL Sa­lon, says: ‘We’re mov­ing away from warmer bal­ayages colour to­wards cleaner, brighter over­all colour. With blondes, the tone is very pure. Think Scan­di­na­vian blonde.’
