REWIND: A feminine, 60s inspired centre sweep style brought into the future by adding a raw, weathered texture to the hair, which is enhanced with organic-looking colour for a contemporary feel.
• Colour: A glazing technique was used to create a minimal, effortless colour with a malt-brown hue applied to the root area, blending into a soft, natural brunette through the length and ends, using TIGI Copyright Colour gloss.
SCANDI-BLONDE: Conveying a sense of cool that other tones of blondes simply fall short of, the Scandi-blonde is naturally elegant with a nonchalant attitude. Modern retro waves with a gently undulating fringe give this bright Nordic colour a soft, feminine finish.
• Colour: A classic seamless highlighting technique was used to create a bright Scandanavian blonde look. The hair was lightened with TIGI True Light White, then glossed with TIGI Copyright Colour gloss to create a pure blonde result.
COME AS YOU ARE: Inspired by the come as you are trend for letting individual beauty shine through, this insouciant tucked-in hair look is easy to achieve, low-maintenance, and looks effortlessly chic. The key is natural, undone texture.
• Colour: Stils Lumiere Lights freehand technique was used to create a contoured effect of warm taupe around the face for brightness and lightness, using TIGI Copyright Colour Lift. The all-over colour was then glossed with a rich bronze hue with TIGI Copyright Colour gloss.
