Trend Report by master color specialist Min Kim
We may still be in the middle of summer (and in case you forgot, just step outside and feel all that wonderful humid air ruining that lovely blowout) but, alas, all good things must come to an end. That’s why it’s never too early to start thinking about your fall hair, which really means thinking about one thing… Balayage! It’s the hair color option that’s truly for everyone. There is no doubting balayage and all of the reasons why it’s the way to go now or next season. Choose from the placement of a few accent pieces, a softer overall result, or something more fun like…(drum roll please)…the BRONDE!
For the ever-changing #butterflybabes out there (or the ladies who want to be), a BRONDE look is an easy way to try a completely different color while still keeping what you were born with. Or not! Because the lightest pieces are on the ends, you can push the limits with color while still maintaining the natural tones closest to your face. For most of us who are always at work, our hair color doesn’t even come close to looking any different than it did in February. (Even after that weekend in Fire Island.) Thankfully, we now have the BRONDE technique… It’s a great way to lighten up those ends and give your strands a FAKE-a-tion with that sun-kissed look you’ve longed for since you had summers off.
Just take a look at Chrissy Teigen’s hair color evolution recently, or our gorgeous founder Kattia Solano… Total BRONDE Babe Alert! If you are more daring, then you can just as easily pull off the same look with an edge by adjusting your natural base to something darker or more red (such as a dark chocolate or mocha for brunettes), warmer or cooler (strawberry or sand for blondes) – and if you really like to play, try pastels or super vivid toned ends. Always remember that with this extension of the balayage trend, your options are truly endless. Have fun and happy BRONDEing!
