The famous “head shot” has no age: dreaming of asking your hairdresser for pink or blue shades has happened to everyone. Then, however, the courage fails and we proceed with the usual reassuring relief. Blame also for the message sent so far: the color is often associated with strong, punk or revolutionary personalities, while it is normal that even women with more refined and elegant taste, sometimes even classic, want certain pastel shades for a special occasion. The solution is called “hair underlay“: literally layered hair, i.e. strands colored with different shades on top of each otherseemingly natural looks that, in a single gesture, reveal patches of color.
Two-tone hairstyle trend for summer 2022
Depending on the combinations of shades and the desired result, there are combinations adapted to each personality: “We have octogenarians who choose to color their hair with Hardening, our semi-permanent collection,” says Mauro Basso, artistic director of Tempra by I.Art. “The secret is to bet on a sophisticated look by choosing colors that also contrast, but without excess. We call this particular technique “block color”, because it works on blocks of color. For example, you can make the top of the head in one shade, with the bottom near the nape of another. Or even just a tuft. Another method: play on blocks of different and superimposed blondes. For those with natural gray hair, just choose blue for a single strand and reveal it if needed with a sideline or crop.” A sort of advanced sweeping evolution, a multitone coloring where two colors combine into one look. With loose hair, the two-tone effect is almost invisible, but it appears if the hair is gathered in a ponytail or a bun, with a surprise effect. “This 1990s-inspired trend is back thanks to the pursuit of the much-desired playfulness during the pandemic,” says Michael Nolte, VP Creative Director Beautystreams, an international cosmetics trend research agency. “Over the past two years, DIY hair color products have seen a surge and have been a tool for freely exploring new looks and escaping the monotony of quarantine. In China, Japan and South Korea, having a strong hair color hidden under a natural shade is quite in vogue.”
An inclusive trend which includes all age groups“Young people prefer bright, neon colors, while more mature consumers opt for those with less contrast, such as reds, blues and pastel pinks. Over the past year, on the other hand, greens have grown in popularity, ranging from turquoise to khaki, as they represent an ode to nature and tell of an increasingly green transversal nature,” reveals Nolte. Regarding the colors, Mauro Basso concludes: “Hardening has at its disposal eighteen shades inspired by the paintings of famous painters. Orange with blonde is a juxtaposition found in Paul Klee’s Senecio, as well as pink in Degas’s Ballerinas. The important thing is to seek a fusion between the two colors. The less contrast you give, the more chic the final effect will be”.
