Lily Aldrige Contouring is a concept most people are familiar with today (we thank Kim K for that). The technique of sculpting something to look aesthetically pleasing has been making the rounds in beauty circles for years, but did you know you can do the same with your hair? We see this on the red carpet, in magazines and on celebrities – face framing highlights are here to stay and we will be seeing much more of this trend in 2018. Imagine you were going to the beach for weeks with your hair up in a ponytail. Only strands exposed to the sun will become lighter and as a result: brighter hair around the face. “If you want to achieve this natural look, I would suggest to not go brighter than two levels from your natural hair color”, says colorist Claudia Decicco. These type of highlights are great for clients who have never done color before, since it’s not as extreme as a full head of highlights. It’s also excellent for people who are dark brunettes and transitioning into becoming gray, as the changeover would become a bit softer. “From a colorist’s perspective, face framing highlights are probably the best way for me to get to know my client’s hair and condition as you only need to color a few locks for the result”, says Decicco. She goes on to say, “As a colorist, there are a lot of factors for me to take into consideration when I meet a new client; skin tone, natural pigments, eye color, and lifestyle to mention a few. You need to look at the whole picture to achieve the best results. Truth is, each client is individual but adding subtle highlights to lighten the hair around the face is an easy way to achieve a youthful and fresh look.” – Claudia Decicco, Colorist Soho Ready to try out this trend?

Prevent damage and repair your strands from within are two of the things the miracle treatment Olaplex promises to do. This may sound too good to be true and for many years this has been the case – but not anymore. Olaplex has been making the rounds in beauty circles the last couple of years and colorists are now, thanks to this 3-step-treatment, able to receive results that they’d only dreamt of before. This means that all over-bleached babes out there are now given a second chance to healthy hair. Olaplex is the treatment you wish you would have invested in last year. The treatment is divided into three parts where the first two are done in the salon. Olaplex Number 1 aka the Bond Multiplier can be applied to the hair as a stand-alone treatment, or mixed in with the bleach. Olaplex Number 2 is either applied to the hair once the bleach is rinsed out or on top of number 1 for a fuller effect. The Bond Perfector is left on for a minimum of 20 minutes to get the most out of its chemical mending. Olaplex Number 3 is the third and final step of the treatment and this one allows you to take things into your own hands. The Hair Perfector is a take-home treatment, preferably used once a week for best results. Apply to damp hair and leave on for at least 10 minutes before washing as normal. Source: olaplex.com As opposed to a conditioner that improves the superficial condition of the damaged tresses, this treatment improves the health of your strands from within. It helps rebuild the damaged disulphide bond in your hair that is broken during chemical processes such as color. In other words, Olaplex is a game-changer for the health of your hair. Intrigued?
