Last autumn, Toni&Guy‘s Global Creative Director, Sacha Mascolo-Tarbuck and her team unveiled the Duality collection – 25 trend-driven looks that act as a blueprint for salons to interpret across the globe. This multi-faceted approach extends not just to the cuts but to the colours as well. The Duality collection showcases some of Toni&Guy’s most sophisticated colour applications to date. Here are three of the most cutting-edge trends to inspire your look for the new season.
The popular beauty technique of strobing – playing with light and shade – is now being applied to hair, with technicians blending together a number of different colours to create flattering ‘strobes of light’ and give the illusion of depth and tone. As most strobing techniques involve painting colour on to hair freehand, this creates a bespoke palette uniquely suited to your skintone and hairstyle.
Soft pastel shades are brought into the fore for spring, with particular attention paid to rose pink, peachy coral and mint green hues. Tones are kept delicately faded for an ultra-flattering finish and to subtly enhance the texture of the hair. ‘Faded brights give a transcending illusion of femininity and softness, making it an ideal choice for spring,’ says Siobhan Golden, International Technical Artistic Director.
‘Ask your technician to block colour subsections to either conceal or reveal a zesty palette’ Georgie Mathers Technical Artistic Director
Pops of fluro will be seen everywhere from clothing to hair, and bold accent colour placement is one of the easiest ways to transform your look. You can go as bold as you dare and build up citrus tones over a few visits. Plus, it’s not solely reserved for blondes – tones of antique gold and strawberry can boost the depth of a brunette base.
