Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but who’s to say that we don’t love silver, gold, platinum, rose gold, copper, or even two-toned alternatives? Well, this year, we are loving these options in our hair! Many variations of metallic hair are trending right now. Is this process for you?
For this hair trend, you’ll need to pre-lighten your hair to platinum and then your desired metallic color will be deposited over your blonde areas. If you have dark brown to black hair and it has been previously colored, please expect the changeover to metallic hair to take a while! This process will most likely not be achieved in one session. Having patience with your hairdresser is key. It is also very important to seek a colorist who has experience in metallic colors.
Multi-tone metallic hair is very popular right now. Different highlighting techniques, such as balayage and babylights, are being used to achieve these looks. Balayage, a hair painting technique, has been the trend over the past few years because it gives the hair a beautiful, multidimensional color melt. This trend is not going anywhere anytime soon, no matter what color your hair is!
There are shampoos and conditioners being sold that can tint your hair playful colors, once you have pre-lightened your mane or are already blonde enough. If you are interested in this coloring option, Overtone and Viral are two companies whose products allow you to try some of these fun hues on your own. They wash out eventually, so there is no commitment.
I am a fan of rose gold for all of my girls who are daring enough to play with their blonde and warm it up for spring! For my lighter platinum blondes, I am loving a metallic powder blue diamond hue this season. Go ahead, try a metallic out!
