Spoiler alert: this spring-summer 2020, there is not one and the same color – or technique-that will be everywhere this season. After years of tie and dye, ombre hair and pastel hair, the colors are now made to measure. Sébastien Maurizio, the Dessange expert, explains: “the goal is to bring a work related to the identity of the woman, whether for color or for a blond “.
Now, much like in fashion, all styles mix and cohabit. Thus, we encounter completely natural hair colors, sometimes even with apparent roots or gray hair, as we encounter more contrasting colors with original reflections in blue, gray, pink tones… what has changed everything? Social networks. “On Instagram, you can see very different colors with various inspirations.” Lilac, rose gold, blond blue… there is something for every taste (and colors !).
If no color stands out, one technique persists the play of light. This was already the case last year with hair bronzing for a sun effect. In 2020, we adapt to personality, face shape, basic color, maintenance … in short, we customize! The expert explains: “on a Californian scan, you create more intense lights on the lengths and tips. On a brown, one can make a glaze to bring out a cut line “. This is definitely the era of bespoke beauty.
This year, the biggest trend when it comes to hair colors is to bring dimension to her hair.
Adios the uniform colors, everything is now in contrast and reflections!
In concrete terms, what does this mean? Simply by strands, more or less pronounced sweeps, shaded, thinned areas… in short, all these techniques that allow to structure the hair and give them a more natural look.
Like about every year, the sweep is back in strength, with a more subtle side than usual.
The idea is to mix the different shades more or less light on very thin strands for a natural finish, a bit as if the hair had lightened slightly after a week of holiday in the sun.
The closer the shade of the sweep will be to your natural hair color, the more successful the result will be!
Do not hesitate to ask your hairdresser to lighten slightly the two strands that frame your face, it will highlight your complexion and give it a brighter appearance.
In a much less natural register that is likely to make some people grind their teeth (including me, I must admit), the big strands that contrast with the rest of the hair are back.
