This spring, liven up your style by lightening your hair, or more specifically, your mid-lengths. Our expert reveals how this new color trend will instantly make your locks appear healthier and more vibrant than ever.
Head to your nearest Jean Louis David salon
to get this coloring technique done right. ‘The application process is called Splashlight
and consists of only lightening the mid-lengths, where the light would naturally reflect from. This effect is fairly simple to create, regardless of your hair color. However, your shade of highlight will differ from color to color. Women with a dark base will see auburn tones whereas blonde will show up better on light brunette locks’.
After completing your hair make-over, make sure you choose a shampoo designed for colored hair. ‘Although this technique is focused onto one area of your style and shouldn’t make hair sensitive, a shampoo for colored hair, such as the one found in the Color Therapy range
, is your best option. Revive your fading color and preserve its natural shine. You should also think about booking a hair appointment every 3 months for root touch-ups to keep your style looking fresh and vibrant. Our advice:
Nail the look by opting for a layered cut which will show off your highlights beautifully. A full, bob-shaped style is the ideal starting point, whether your hair is mid-length or extra-long. ©Dr © Jean Louis David
