The other day we were talking to a few of our hair experts at Riccardo Maggiore Salons asking them what 2017 had in store for new color techniques. 2017 will be about experimenting and making tweaks to your existing style.
Balayage, a continuing obsession from 2016, which is perfect for those out there who are afraid of a major chop or color change.
Without further ado, here are a few trend terms to know for your New Year, New ‘Do color transformation:
Tiger Eye - Tiger Eye hair color, named for the ‘Tiger Eye’ stone of rich brown and gold tones, uses warm tones on dark hair to achieve the same effect we have come to expect from hand painted highlights.
Eclipting - Eclipting hair color technique is going to be the next big ‘IT’ Hair thing! It incorporates makeup techniques using strategic color placement as a way of framing the face using the contrasting colors that differ from person to person based on their undertones and features. Compared with balayage technique, eclipting is all about getting a visible contrast.
Ecaille - “Ecaille” means tortoise shell in French. For this cool dye technique, is a freehand color, similar to balayage or freehand painting. The main difference is instead of using lightener your colorist creates a gorgeous blend effect on the hair and it is great for ladies who are looking for a low-maintenance color. Touchups every three to four months are more than enough.
