Ombre and Split-dyed hair are so yesterday. Read on to know what the hottest hair trends and hues are. Whether you want a drastic makeover or a slight change, we've got you covered!
This new technique in town creates a multidimensional effect by allowing multiple tones to melt together to produce a seamless look, without any demarcation lines. It is highly versatile and can be done various ways such as Ombre, Sombre, Balayage or Ecaille. Creative or classic? Take your pick.
FADED DENIM BLUE
Tonnes of neon shades can be seen in salons and on the red carpet, but this new, subtle, and dusty blue colour is taking the internet by storm! Bonus: its patchiness gives one an effortlessly edgy and rugged look. When done properly, it will fade to everyone’s favourite colour – silver grey!
Getting trendy with your hair is always a lot of fun, but a colour that fits with your complexion and undertones will always be in.
Compound colours require layering at least two or more colours per section to create an illuminated multi-tonal effect. It melts an array of hues and shades together on a single strand, creating a sparkly tonal gradient, when done well look so dreamy and fairy-tale like. Think "Galaxy"; "Northern Lights"; "Pony"; and "Rainbow".
Hair colours are not just about warm or cool. 2016 is a year for neutral hair hues. By balancing between warm and cool tones, the colours cancel each other out to create a neutral shade, making it easy-to-wear, while breaking away from the traditional one-tone colour. Definitely suited for high-powered working executives who need to sport an authoritative and serious image. Simplicity can be beautiful too. Bonus: they are flattering on all skin tones.
If you are adventurous, you may opt for a more dramatic nude hair colour version such as the one done below.
Think Emma Roberts, who recently sported a rose gold hair. It is pretty, ethereal and well-loved by many because of the pink-tinted blonde. It doesn’t scream for attention, unlike pastel or neon pink. Bonus: it brightens up your whole look – even if you’re wearing minimal makeup. A well-drawn eyeliner or a tint of lip gloss will be required, though. Note: it will take multiple sessions to achieve this colour. This is to better protect your hair’s integrity!
Don’t let anyone tell you that Balayage is out! In fact, it is here to stay even in 2016. The Balayage seen in 2016 is less ombre, more gradual and natural. They are usually intertwine with Babylights to create a much more seamless effect. We call it Balayage Version II. Bonus: minimal touch up required and can be customised to suit working professionals!
We have seen cool blonde shades popping all over Instagram for the past few years. The trend is shifting towards warm blondes. Think buttery beige and sandy blondes, less icy blondes.
Everyone saw the silver hair trend of the last year explode, but it looks like it’s finally dying down. In 2016, it’s all about lavender ash. Shawn has a secret formula that requires minimal pre-lightening. He combines two easy-to-obtain shades to mimic the lavender ash effect. Who would have thought that the design below was not achieved using lavender ash shades?
Note: For women with sensitive reddish skin, avoid colours that contain red (such as Rose Gold, Lavender Ash, Strawberry Red). Instead, opt for cool colours such as olive, which can neutralise the red facial undertone while being in trend and chic.
These delicate highlights hit the hair scene in 2015, so they’re set to go mainstream in the coming year to create soft, natural, and effortless look. Babylights are delicate highlights painstakingly created using a very fine hair colour technique to mimic the subtle, dimensional hair colour seen on children’s hair. Bonus: suited for all working-professions. Perfectly customizable.
PINK COPPER OR CUIVRE PINK
Pink hair has been trending for the past few years, and it is not showing any signs of stopping. Pink-copper version of Ecaille or Block colours is predicted to be the next big thing in 2016. 2015 is all about cool greys and tones. In 2016 – more peaches, shimmering copper and Cuivre pink. Cuivre means “copper” in French. If you’re afraid that this hair colour will fade too easily, ask for Shawn. He has a secret formula in hand to make purple, red, copper and fashion shades last longer than usual! Shhhh. It’s a secret.
If you’ve always dream of going dark with your hair (or take a break from those funky shades), now’s the time. This year’s browns will be more woodsy, ranging from dark chocolate to espresso. Bonus: it gives you a healthier-looking hair as well.
NEON OR STREAKS OF NEON
Thanks to Pravanna, neon is still in-trend this year, especially in Asia. If all-over neon hair colours scared you away from these unnatural shades, try having neon accent pieces inserted into the hair for a more subtle look, yet allowing you to express your carefree, fun, and adventurous side.
BLONDES. BLONDES. AND MORE BLONDES.
Blondes are still in all rage in Asia. Damn! The most damaging colours out of all the trends for Asians. Almost everyone in the media or creative industry is sporting it. Be warned, intensive maintenance and consistent hair therapies are needed! Also, do yourself a favour, ask for Olaplex when pre-lightening.
