Hold onto your hats, "geode" is about to take over the hair colour world this season. What exactly is it, and how can you copy this amazing look by hair idol and blogger Aliona Davy?
What is geode hair colour?
The geologists among you will be the first to point out that a geode is a small cavity of stone that contains crystals or minerals. While this is where the hair colour expression was inspired from, don't worry, the trend doesn't involved you emulating a rock face or doing anything with mineral matter.
Instead, think delicious jewel tones like amethyst, moonstone and sapphire cascading down your hair like a mermaid bedazzled in precious gems. The colour starts rich and bold at the ends, gradually fading into the natural hair tone by the time it reaches the roots.
Geode hair: an intense and vivid #Colorfulhair alternative!
Not only is this a head-turning and uniquely personalised look, but we love the way it stands out from other multi-tonal hair trends. All those ombré and mermaid hair combinations will fade into the background of any selfie – making this is our go-to look for the festival season.
L'Oréal Professionnel's #ColorfulHair is a new personalised hair colouring service that allows you to play with colour just like you experiment with makeup! A professional hair colourist will work with you to create your very own look, from a discreet pop of colour to bold and brilliant geode locks that last for up to 15 washes.
Aliona Davy at the salon: L'Oréal Professionnel and Smartbond
Aliona Davy, the queen of hair colour transformations, shows us - via her Instagram account – how geode hair is achieved at the salon. Because of the amount of colour and the technicality required to achieve the look, a strengthening service such as L'Oréal Professionnel's Smartbond system is highly recommended.
The first two steps (an additive and pre-shampoo action) are completed during the colouring process, while the third (a strengthening conditioner) is applied once back home. Smartbond not only protects your hair, it also keeps it healthy and helps prolong the bold colour for longer.
