2016 blonde hair colour trend: SNOWLIGHTS

20 May 2016 blonde hair colour trend: SNOWLIGHTS

​If you’re thinking of going blonde for the first time, or wanting an icy update to your already platinum locks you will love the latest lightening technique – SNOWLIGHTS

Colour is always evolving and for 2016 we have seen the development of BABYLIGHTS (very natural looking micro foils) into the new cooler SNOWLIGHTS for many of our clients who have previsousy favoured platinum ‘scalp bleach’ blonde services.

One of the reasons for this shift is the general current trend of very natural looking hair with subtle sun-kissed babylights and multi-dimensional balayage with organic root blends, so even the more dramatic looks like ‘platinum blondes’ are going for a more multi-dimensional textural feel, so they look more natural.

Who are snowlights for?
Like the name suggests, snowlights compliment cool blonde tones: think ashy, platinum and silver. If your hair is already one of these colors, then you’re the perfect candidate for snowlights. However for all the brunettes out there, you can still pull off the look – all you need to do is take the leap into blonde territory first with baby lights in more natural / golden blonde tones first and once your hair has lightened enough then you can transition into the cooler snowlights.

Leave it to the pros
Snowlights not only need to look soft and natural, they require a special technique that only your hairstylist will be able to execute. Instead of the classic t-shape method used for highlights, snowlights are applied sparingly in a snowflake pattern on the top of the head. They’ll also be able to formulate the correct color for your hair so that no yellow undertones peep through. Of course we always recommend using Olaplaex with your colour service and at home maintenance, to achieve these light and bright blondes while maintaining the health and integrity of your hair.

Celebs Love this Look!
Celebs like Jennifer Lawrence, Rosie Huntington Whiteley and Gigi Hadid have all jumped on board with the trend this winter, proving that it’s a popular look. Snowlights are a great way to freshen up your look, and they will give you ultimate ice queen status – who wouldn’t want to be queen?
