Does anyone else notice that trends have a circle of life? Right now, the 90’s/00’s styles are back with a vengeance, and we are here for it!
One hair colour trend that’s made a huge turn around is ‘Colour Blocking’ and it’s taking over hairstyles on social media.
What is colour blocking you ask?
It’s the use of contrasting blocks of colour that stands out and differs from the rest of your hair colour. A statement piece if you will.
The variety of colour combinations in colour blocking using Leyton House Professional hair colour are endless but the most popular colour is half brunette, half blonde, this works particularly well for an everyday appearance. However, if your clients are a little more daring how about half-half hair colours like purple and pink using Leyton House Professional Colour Spangles, Rouge or Illuminates range. What a standout.
Just like most hairstyle trends, you will always find certain celebrities giving them a go.
When it comes to colour blocking, there are a few celebrities who wear them with flare.
Billie Eilish who has taken the world by storm, not only with her music but also with her hairstyle, rocking the coloured roots, with the fluro green and black she was sure to make some noise & she has.
Halsey, has always been a big fan of different hair colours and hairstyles and has rocked the block-coloured bangs in rainbow.
