Colors of the Season

This season we are seeing lots of color. We are finally starting to creep out of the ombre phase and graduate into more edgy and even sophisticated color styles. While the basic ombre embodies a feeling of casual, low maintenance beauty, it’s new improvements include “peek a boo streaks of primary and secondary vibrant shades coming through underneath the base,” Tony Gordon, Owner of Gordon Salons said.
Marisa Liddane, Emerging Artist at Gordon Salon in Highland Park, sees hair color trends in blue/green or violet. These fashion colors can be bright and bold, pastel and faded or barely there depending on a person’s base hair color. “I think hippie fashion has definitely influenced the colored hair look,” Marisa said. “Balayage tends to be great for people who don’t want as much upkeep because it tends to grow out naturally if the right shades are used.”
“I think 90s beauty has come back significantly with hair color in the past couple of years,” Emilia Rossini said. She sees the 90s represented in pastels, buttery blondes and auburn colored hair.
When you think about it, the low maintenance grunge of the 90s does translate into the “undone” and “natural” colored hair we are constantly seeing today.
