It’s All About Placement

Twilighting or Twilights have nothing to do with vampires but will add a bit of shimmer to your style. Making its way to the top of the trend list for 2020, Twilighting combines a blend of color placement on brunette shades to get an effortlessly low-key look. Essentially balayage with a face-frame of babylights, strands are lightened only 2-3 shades brighter than your base color. Saying sayonara to over-lifted locks, this technique will cut down on time spent in the salon as well as the possibility of a brassy grow out.

The Tone

We already knew that gold was slated as one of the top color trends of the season, but Twilights are solidifying it! Created on brunette shades, Twilighting aims to add golden hues to the hair in subtle sections. Due to the fact that you are only lifting a few shades lighter, hair remains healthier and can easily be kept up at home with a weekly toning shampoo and conditioner.
