Blended Ombre: Ombre was a big highlight trend for 2012, for spring 2013 the look has been updated to more subtle highlights, it’s kind of a whisper instead of an “I AM HERE” shout. The blended Ombre is all about bringing the lighter strands closer to your roots to create a softer contrast. The great thing about an Ombre highlight is that the color can be customized to fit anyone’s look.
Buttery blond with roots: Icy and champagne blond highlights will never completely go out of style in Boston salons, but for spring\summer 2013 buttery blonds will continue to gain momentum. Healthier to maintain than platinum blond highlights because milder chemicals are used in salon to achieve this look that comes out looking more golden than yellow.
Dark Brown with highlights: Two toned browns seem to be rapidly gaining popularity. Caramel highlights add dimension to deep, chestnut-brown hair. Making this the perfect highlight shade for those who want to embrace their brunette locks.
Bold streak: Where as last year, even Boston fell in love with pastel colored streaks, this year we still will see color streaks, but the best way to work these highlights in will be to use bold colors. We’re seeing a lot of vibrant primary colors either applied directly to the hair, or by attaching a bold extension piece. These bold highlights are easier to maintain in between salon visits and work great on dark to light hair.
The perfect highlight for you: To make sure you get the best salon highlight results in Boston, make sure that your stylist asked you all the right questions to get to know your hair, your color likes and dislikes.
