Just arriving home from Europe and New York we spoke to Kristina to find out whats trending this winter. She shows us two of her amazing ‘Mauva’ creations.
Jenny: ‘Crackle’ This technique is ideal for colour shy clients with virgin hair or as a pre-lightening service before a Semi-Permanent Colour Glaze. A decolourising wash is applied to dry hair. The area requiring lightness is bunched up tightly and lightener is painted onto gloves and then pressed onto hair shaft, repeated until desired saturation is achieved. Jenny was glazed with Violet Mahogany for a velvet finish. This effect is beautiful to add interest and shine to long hair for Winter. Also highly suitable for existing Balyage clients that are looking for a Winter transformation.
Lexi: ‘Graphic Edging’ Bleeding border softens solid hair cuts. Mixing softness with strength for this modern beauty. Pastels of Pink, Lilac and Lavender are tumbled through her hair with a freehand Balyage application. Highly suitable for short to medium length hair with a solid fringe. The perimeter (or edge) of hair is painted freely without a stencil. The secret to success is to blow dry and iron hair into style before ‘Edging’. This look is my twist on NYC latest street trend #spashlight
