Face-framing colour has been gaining popularity from the previous season – and looks to be exploding in 2021. The perfect seasonal update to balayage or highlights, the nicknamed Money Piece gives long and shorter hair an instant uplift and is ideal for all hair types and tones. Totally bespoke and you can go as strong or as subtle as you want.Favourite with celebrities such as Beyonce, Dua Lipa and Bella Haddid, the Money Piece is set to be one of the key colour trends for 2021. First made popular in the 90s, this modern version adds dimension to hair, is seamless and easy to look after.
Beckie Eaton, colourist at Room 97 Creative in Leeds, says it’s the perfect personalised service for everyone. “The Money Piece is a section of hair around the hairline that lifts your complexion, highlights your eyes and makes your hair colour pop. It’s striking but subtle, and gives your hair a luxurious and expensive finish. It also gives your hair a sun-kissed feel – just what we need when we can’t go way on holiday! The Money Piece is a great way to bring some lighter colour into your hair, can be bold and different in tone, or subtle and lighter than your usual colour. It’s easy to look after and is ideal on blondes with honey or caramel tones, while warn browns and chocolate hues look great on brunettes. The finish leaves hair looking luxe and lustrous,” says Beckie. This low-maintenance colour requires minimum upkeep – a purple shampoo for blondes to avoid brassiness and a colour shampoo for brunettes to prevent fading. Ideal for clients who want to try something new when lockdown is over – so maybe start experimenting with your doll heads and trying different colour combinations?
