Spring is almost in the air and nothing says “Hello, spring!” better than a fresh new hair hue! From balayage to hair chalk, there is a daring new look for everyone to try! Check out the hottest trends and tips from Butterfly Studio Salon’s expert colorists.
Straight from the runway, watch for L’Oréal Professionnel‘s launch of HAIR chalk, now available at Butterfly Studio Salon as one of the first salons to offer this service/product. The range of colors includes 3 “natural” and 5 “fashion” shades, giving the user plenty to play with.
It washes out with shampoo and lasts for approximately 10 washes. It’s a fast add-on service at the salon, great for those who love to play with change or are curious about starting a hair-coloring journey. You can get the effect of hair color without the chemicals, the damage or the commitment. Hair chalk can also be applied with the Balayage method, which gives the artist the freedom to create anything on a particular hairstyle – completely customized for the client.
With celebrities like Jessica Biel and Sarah Jessica Parker leading the charge, Balayage is sweeping the nation. Whether it’s minimal with low-maintenance (tone on tone shades of dark to light chocolate) or more classic like a California Blonde (sunny and warm or bright and icy), the endless options are what makes this service so desirable. Every girl can become an “it girl” with this gorgeous, light-reflecting hair trend! — Min Kim, Butterfly Studio Salon Master Color Specialist, L’Oréal Professionnel and Soho Academy Artist
In the past few seasons, redheads have been seriously downplayed and are making a strong comeback for 2014. For your perfect redhead look, keep skintone in mind: cooler, darker shades of red for darker hair color bases; cooler skin tones (and warmer), more golden coppery shades of red for lighter hair color bases and more pale skintones.
Blondes are cooling it down and bringing back vibrant ice-toned shades with silver hues. To make this look work for you, even if you have pale skin, ask your colorist to customize the perfect hue to compliment you. I feel the perfect icy blonde is achieved through balayage highlights and a Dialite photo finish (similar to a color gloss) to “ice” the cake. Think celebrities such as Julianne Hough, Cameron Diaz and Cara Delevigne. White hot is the way to go for 2014.
Brunettes are extremely versatile for 2014. You are seeing everything from iced cappuccino brunettes à la Mila Kunis to mahogany-based brunettes and everything in between. A new ombré-like look is sweeping the hair color world known as the “sombre” effect.
This look tones down the drastic former ombré to a much more subtle ombré, where there is a gradual fluidity from a darker base to brighter ends. Think Natalie Portman who is rocking a “sombre” look right now. — Hair Color Trends by Faye Goodwin, Butterfly Studio Salon Expert Colorist
