Peewees 2016 predictions for hair .
I believe that colours should work in unison with the clients cut shape that has been crafted into the hair by the designer and also contoured favourably with the clients face shape.My recommendation is that hair shapes are created with strong precision techniques based on each individual clients head shape . Shorter hair based on classic geometric lines interpreted in a more sexy and soft way with a hint of asymmetry utilising the freedom of texturing techniques with a variety of cutting tools....
Colour needs to move away from standard Highlights or block colour. To compliment the mood of these shapes colours need to have more contrast introduced into them no matter what technique is used to create a more 3 dimensional effect.
Longer hair shapes need to again reflect more precision in execution of the shape and a move away from standard concave layering, over direction and elevation should be used to create the desired effect, this will need to be supplemented with strategic texturising techniques to create the effect of invisible layers ! It will be vital that clients are taught alternative ways to style there newly designed cut to give them more options.
Colour for longer hair needs to benefit from more creativity , again contouring with contrast tones to enhance face shape and density of hair. Highlighting needs the additonal use of glossing,wedges, the occassional strap or slice or merging,smudging, blending etc.
Just as you can enhance facial structure with makeup, haircolor can be used to give certain features subtle definition and minimize the features a client dislikes,. This means we can give you the illusion of higher cheekbones or a slimmer jawline with just a few strategically placed pieces around your face.
We call this hair colouring technique contouring . Weaved floodlights or freestyle hair painting are the two best methods.
We can use light and dark colours when contouring. If you want to add width to an area, use a lighter color; to reduce width, use a darker colour.
As with all colour services we advise that to protect your 'investment' of hair colour to always use professional shampoo and conditioner - and steer away from high detergent based products. Our recommendation is Paul Mitchell Color Protect range or Paul Mitchell Ultimate Color Repair products. Below you will find a money off voucher that you can use for either of these Color haircare ranges for shampoo, conditioner or treatments.
I hope this inspires you to start 2016 in style!
