The start of the year is an ideal time to swap out last year’s look and try on something fresh. While we’re still in the throes of winter, experts agree that in 2022 warm tones and low-maintenance color upkeep will be key. Take a peek at some of the top color predictions for 2022 and how to keep them looking their best all year long.
You might have not always known what to call it, but chances are you know exactly what this trend entails. Tone-on-tone color is a technique that uses various saturations of a single tone to create various depths and lights throughout your look. For example, to create a lit-from-within look, your stylist can start with a honey shade and use various levels of the same shade to create a beach-kissed or glowing finished look.
For this stunning copper tone-on-tone shade, @hairbychristinedaoud utilized Wella Professionals Illumina 7/43 + 6% on the roots and Wella Professionals Color Touch 8/43 + 8/0 on the ends to create a perfect blend!
Babylights (or very fine highlights) have been trending for the past few seasons and as we round the corner from winter into spring, we’ll see stylists opting for a new iteration — baby lowlights. Adding lowlights to any look can create depth and help highlights appear lighter. The combination of baby lights and baby lowlights allows you to wear a high impact color (like ice blonde) year-round. In addition to this, new growth is easily blended for seamless upkeep.
To create the look, stylists should opt for Wella Professionals Color Touch to tone lighter levels and add lowlights where needed so you're able to create depth that can also be lifted lighter at a later date. Taking inspiration from @texasbalayage she used Wella Professionals Color Touch 9/97 for highlights and Color Touch 7/97 for lowlights for a seamless blend!
You may love the look of an icy-blonde finish, however, as your summer tan begins to fade it can be a great idea to warm up your hair color in its absence. This process doesn’t need to be permanent and you can even upgrade your tone at home.
