Spring is the period when a lot of people dye their hair so that it matches the season’s sunless mood. That is exactly why a lot of people will find the new shade shared by Chris Weber quite fascinating.
Vanilla Loft Salon’s Chris Weber recently shared a hair color he called the Vanilla-Lilac color. The Instagram hairstylist based in Canada took to his page to showcase the hair shade. He posted a picture of a lady who has a perfectly blended lob with a combination of brunette roots that fade into vanilla and cinnamon hues and later lightens at the ends with pastel lilac. This new shade looks so soft and pretty.
Weber, the co-founder of the Canada-based Vanilla Loft salon, while speaking to a media outlet explained that he made use of a mix containing lavender tones and bleach to create the effect. He said that his client already had her hair pre-lightened from past sessions and so he focuses on dyeing the ends and the pieces that frame her face.
He added that he lightened the ends and hairlines with black so it could give a shade of white-blonde. He later mixed it with a lavender toner, particularly an ultralight toner. He added that the dye ought to be as pastel as you can make it and should have only little pigment. The mix was what he applied from the hair mid-length straight to the hair end and he subsequently left the mix in the hair for a defined period.
Achieving this effect can only be done by someone who is experienced in mixing, blending, bleaching and dyeing and so should be done only by professionals. Anyone looking to try out the look outside North Vancouver should go to a professional stylist to recreate it. Weber suggested that people who have darker hair should start using a darker purple shade and then slowly proceed to pastel lilac. That is to ensure that the hair doesn’t get damaged.
You can revive the faded highlights of your hair with depth if you add brown lowlight colors such as mushroom. Adding a color with depth makes the current highlights appear brighter and lighter without having to re-bleach the hair. Once the lowlight is applied, the hairstylist will most likely use a toner with a cool shade so all the colors can blend together.
A lot of people tend to get a flannel shirt at one point or the other. During the spring, an inspiration for a lot of the common hair colors is usually taken from these flannel palettes. The artistic director of Matrix, Nick Stenson, advised that one should look for rich and deep shades of auburn, copper, plum and crimson mixed in one design so it gives off the plaid effect.
A mix of blue, lavender and violet is a shade that looks comfortable as well as classy. There are several shades in different collections that make the creation of the dusty hue easier. To get a periwinkle shade that clearly stands out, mix tiny strands of dusty purple, silvery blue and stonewashed denim to produce a multi-dimensional and all-over result.
This coppery red combined with strawberry blonde highlights will definitely look cool for the season. It begins with deeper coppery red used at the hair roots which gradually gets lighter when it gets to the center and has strawberry blonde for its ends. To ensure that this hair keeps looking vivid and fresh as new, make use of gentle and color-friendly conditioners and shampoos that will not affect the molecules of the hair color.
