In one word, yes! Ice blonde is quickly becoming the must-have colour trend for the months ahead. However, not without root regrowth which gives this icy shade of blonde a more natural feel. The pros reveal all.
Ice blonde is traditionally worn with contrasting eyebrows
. ‘Leaving your roots natural picks up the tone of your eyebrows and makes everything softer on the eye. At Jean Louis David
, we’re all for the root re-growth look’. This makes looking after your colour much less high-maintenance, avoiding regular salon appointments every 15 days!
Decide in advance how many centimetres of roots you want showing. ‘The ideal width is around 2-4cm, but no more. Any longer and you’ll end up with more of a dip-dye effect’
Obviously, the colour technique used in salons will be different from your usual cut and colour. ‘When you want to create this re-growth look, you’ll need to lighten several different strands, rather than an all-over colour. At Jean Louis David, you can opt for the Contrast
service in large chunky sections which will create a natural-looking end result’. Our advice:
Don’t try out this icy blonde shade unless your hair is lighter than a chestnut shade. Women with dark hair will only end up damaging their locks by trying to achieve this super-light colour. At Jean Louis David, stylists will only use the Arctic Light
treatment on medium to light shades. © Pixelformula / Givenchy Automne-Hiver prêt-à-porter runway, Autumn-Winter 2014-2015 © Jean Louis David
