If our trend sensors are correct, 2017 is set to be all about hair colour. In fact, it's best to start thinking of hair colour as the new make-up! Here's why you should embrace a whole new palette of shades this year...
Hair colour as the new make-up
Many of us frequently experiment when it comes to our make-up. From playful eye shadows to bold lipstick, adding colour has an instantly transformative power. In 2017, we need to start seeing this kind of potential in our hair colour. The good news is with more shades than ever before to choose from, there's never been a better time to give a bold new hair colour a whirl!
The natural hair colour trend
Not all hair colour changes have to be drastic and completely obvious. Already in 2017 we have seen a rise in the popularity of natural shades. For instance, one of our current favourite tones is Hailey Baldwin's nude beige, which was created through a collaboration between the French fashion designer Vanessa Bruno and the INOA hair colour collection by L'Oréal Professionnel.
In terms of hair colour application technique, the balayage trend has also evolved this season to the more subtle, "foilyage". This technique combines balayage with foils in order to achieve a soft and naturally sunkissed look.
Pastel is still a top hair trend
Natural shades may be having a moment, but if you prefer to be a little more playful with your hair colour, then you can't go past the popularity of pastels! Whether it's a single creamy pastel shade or a rainbow of colours, (as seen on it-girl, Irene Kim ) the beauty of adding a pastel hue to your look is it has an immediate and striking effect. Wall flowers need not apply...
Colour doesn't mean commitment!
One of the main reasons women have trepidations about changing their hair colour is the stigma that it requires a long-term commitment. Forget that! Nowadays, changing up your hair colour can be almost as temporary as trying out a new make-up look - and it's all thanks to semi-permanent hair colour options. For example, is a tone-one-tone, ammonia-free hair colour that fades gradually. This means that you can dabble with a whole new colour look without worrying about really obvious roots showing as the colour fades away.
