SS17 Hair Trends

Spring Summer 2017 Trends

Can you believe we are actually here? Summer! One of Canadas most cherished times! Along with summer we associate many things. Camping, swimming, fishing, canoeing, blah blah blah…lets get real here! We love these activities, but, we LOVE the main ingredient that makes all of these things amazing: THE SUN! In turn, we are proposing what makes us feel free as we reacquaint ourselves in form of style and hair.

It’s all about being comfortable with our natural beauty and feeling free. This is where our Spring Summer 17’ trends stem from. We will be proposing a series of fun and wearable looks within our collection this year. Referencing reliable sources but most of all the looks coming from our own creative ideas. Let’s will jump right into the fun!

            Showing off that pink & lavender pastel!

As we all know the balayage/ombre looks are here to stay and are in full effect for who want a natural look. These looks are also created for people that like to be more daring and love fantasy colours. Our proposal this season is “natural meets fantasy”. We took variations of blending methods and incorporated them with silver-blonds and pastel colours. The incorporation of braids to create a bohemian look is very big this season as well. Deriving from people going to music festivals to people using braids for convenience at the gym. Keep reading to find out why pastel colours suite you more than you would think…

PASTEL PERFORMANCE

Look created by Pino. 50’s inspired pompadour

The wonderful thing about pastel colours is that they give your skin tone the immediate illusion of a tan. Just think about why people go lighter. The visual of a blonde with no gold tones in will suite almost every skin tone. Add a muted colour (pastel) to this and you are generally still a high lift blonde looking like you just got back from a quick 3 day getaway in the Bahamas.

Pink  & Lavender Crossroads

Our first model (Emily) is what hair colourists consider a rare gem. This means that she has natural virgin hair and has never coloured it! Since we are working with such a great palette (Natural level 6-7) we had the opportunity to create pastel colours. The pastels formed from a silver shadow root and went into a pink and lavender. To achieve this we had to lighten Emily’s hair as light as we could past a pale yellow. As you can see in the pictures we created the shadow root first and then applied our pastel using a balayage technique. The pastel lavender was placed around the nape area so that when she braids her hair both pastel colours will intertwine with each other and create a boho meets fantasy look. There are endless ways of showing off these colours. Soft waves so the lavender can peek through, straight, so you can see the seamless blend of the shadow root.

Here is our SS17 Collection in photos! Enjoy!

Rose Gold Hair

     

         Ever dream of rose gold hair? It’s been a while since we’ve posted any colour transformations lately. So I thought we should go for a big one! This picture below shows Magdalena and her dark mahogany violet hair.  We wanted to go for a shadow root or balayage concept for easy maintenance. This technique would make it easy for colour touch-ups until the blend grows farther down and is needed to get painted up again.

 

Before the 4.5 hour process

It took us a while but we got it!!!

Suitability

Magdalena has fair skin with warm tones so we decided to keep the colour quite warm still. Rose gold hair is perfect for her! I’ve always pictured her as a blonde, therefore, anything lighter than her natural (light ash brown) would suit her AND compliment her skin tone. We decided on a rose gold with a metallic reflexes so that the colour would shimmer in bright lights. In order to achieve something like this you need to take out almost all of the warmth and bring it to a light blonde. The lighter we lift, the more of the metallic reflex will be shown.

Technicals

With an opportunity like this transformation I decided to use Olaplex formula to protects Magdalenas’s hair. Olaplex is known amongst the hair industry as the catalyst of healthy hair during a drastic colour change. In other words, your hair won’t be on the ground after you achieve your six level lightening jump. We add this product within our lightener to keep the hair bonds strong. It also comes with a treatment mask to rebuild the internal strengthening bonds of the hair. If you are interested in doing a change like this or any type of drastic change then call in and book a consultation with us so we can create a game plan!

Toning Magda’s hair was just too much fun! I used Maraes colour from Karaal to get the shadow root and for the rose gold I used a combination of Maraes and Pravana. I prepared half of the Pastel Lavender and Pastel Coral.
