Bronde not blonde!!
This month Stylist and Colourist Ashley Taylor from Greg Malloy Hairdressing Penrith talks us through the latest colouring trend.
This season we are still seeing all the celebs sporting “Bronde” hair dos. This is the perfect balance between brown and blonde and is a colour that suits all age ranges. It is more flattering to those with medium to dark skin tone and is a much better option than the previous trend for overly dark hair. This look compliments the skin tone and gives a natural sun kissed look whilst maintaining shine and depth in the darker areas. This look is achieved by using Balayage highlighting techniques and mixing it with a touch of Ombre colour. This technique replaces the foil highlight and makes the hair lighter only in the areas which would ordinarily be tinted by the sunlight. It means that it grows out much more naturally and is therefore less maintenance. It is a less uniform look and this technique can be used with other colours (reds/browns)
It is derived from the French word for sweep and that is exactly what it is. Sweeps of colour hand painted through your hair!
So if you fancy achieving the current red carpet colour ask for a stylist who can apply Balayage highlights and get the look.
