The runway shows for Fashion Week Autumn/Winter are over in NYC and beginning in London, Paris and Milan. But while Europe is focusing on the color months to come, March 20th 2016 is the first official day of Spring. We may be bundling up against the cold, but Spring is literally just a few weeks away (how crazy is that)?
To get ready for Spring, We got some ideas for switching up your hair color from Redken’s celebrity colorist Tracey Cunningham. This lovely and very talented professional says: “Just as you would change your wardrobe and makeup with each season, you should also change your haircolor since your skin tone can lighten or darken one to two shades as the seasons change.”
Good advice. So let’s consider what’s hot, and how to make it work for us.
To help achieve a look that best matches your hair and skin tone, Tracey uses Redken’s revolutionary color formulas to create her favorite haircolor trends for Spring/Summer 2016.
|Spring/Summer 2016 Trend #1: The Khloe Effect|
|“Khloe Kardashian has created a domino effect of brunettes wanting to go lighter. It has made people realize that it can be done and look beautiful and healthy, but it’s also important to realize that it is a process that also requires maintenance both in the salon and at-home. With Khloe, I used Redken Flash Lift over the course of at least three appointments to slowly bring her blonde in stages. Using Redken Shades EQ Gloss as a glaze helped to make her color shine and create a natural and healthy radiance.” – Tracey Cunningham|
|Spring/Summer 2016 Trend #2: Lightened Ends|
|“The blending of highlights and balayage together allows Chrissy Teigen to wear her highlights without having to frequently touch up in-between appointments and creates a seamless look without an obvious line of demarcation between the roots and the ends. Using the new! Free Hand Creamy Lightener from Redken’s Blonde Idol Professional Haircolor Collection 2.0 creates beautiful, lightened ends that help make her appear brighter without compromising her long locks.” – Tracey Cunningham|
|Spring/Summer 2016 Trend #3: Rich Color|
“In a world where highlights have taken hold, there is something so refreshing and elegant about having rich, all-over color like Julia Louis-Dreyfus. It makes a statement! I use Redken’s newChromatics Ultra Rich shades to create a cool, monochromatic look that delivers incredible shine while also fortifying the hair and disguising grey hairs.” – Tracey Cunningham
Good color deserves TLC. Tracey recommends using Redken Color Extend Magnetics Sulfate-Free Haircare or Blonde Idol Haircare to seal in color and deliver maximum vibrancy and shine.
