You are ready to switch it up. You know what you want. Booked the appointment with your stylist and let them know you want “Bronde”. Wait, or was it “Sombre”? What are all of these terms anyway?! WHAT LANGUAGE are they?! How am I supposed to know which one to ask for when they all kind of look the same!
Don’t worry… we are here to help! Let’s break down the terms and techniques so you know what to ask for to go home with the sun-kissed locks of your dreams.
Bronde: A gorgeous way to go from blonde to brunette, without really going brown. It’s a beautiful place living in between Brunette and Blonde
Style: Macadamia Professional
Ronz: Blend Red and Bronze, a coppery red that will turn heads. Coppery Ronz tones full of warmth has never been hotter.
Dip Dye: You guessed it, it looks like you dipped your hair in color. However, DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME! It sounds easy, but it’s only easy to mess up! If you want a great “dip dye” of Pink, Navy, Red or even black…. Please leave it to the pro’s. You’ll be happy you did!
Babylights: This delicate highlighting technique applies color to a thinner section than normal highlights throughout the hair. Babylights give multi-dimensional color while bumping up your tone with a super natural look.
Style: COLOR.ME by KEVIN.MURPHY
Opal: Look no further than your jewelry box, Opal is all the rage. Subtle hints of lavender, pearl, light pinks, blues, purples, or even greens make up this light iridescent hair color.
Style: Elijah Cordova
Oil Slick: Ya know that cool dark swirl look when oil hits water on a rainy day? That’s it! The darker more jewel toned cousin to the “Opal” trend.
Style: Paul Stafford
Platinum: When you hear “platinum” you just think REALLY LIGHT blonde and HEAPS of bleach. Well, you’re not entirely wrong. But really, Platinum is taking your blonde all the way up the color chart to a cool icy tone.
Style: Jorge Buccio
Balayage: Balayage is a technique, more than a color. These painted highlights will give you a perfectly sun-kissed natural look. No one will know whether you stepped out of the salon, or off the beach!
Style: Royston Blythe
Cinnamon Swirl: Blending warm and golden tones into the hair giving you the swirly, and delicious, look of the top of a cinnamon bun.
Style: Evie Rivera-Peterson
Sombre: The softer Ombre! A harsh line of dark to light is so passé, but a softer natural version is not only acceptable, but gorgeous!
Style: Anna Lyles
Rose Gold: A soft blend of pink and gold. Rose gold is all the rage and a bit softer than going straight pink.
Style: Kate Reid for COLOR.ME by KEVIN.MURPHY
Ecaille: Working 3 or more shades through the hair to get a “Tortoiseshell” effect. Great for fine hair, it gives depth and dimension to skinny locks. Try this technique in PINK for a modern effect!
Style: Dmitry Vinokuurov
