Fall always brings changing colour — this season, the transformation of hues isn't just happening outside.
According to Renée Garry, it's taking place in salons across the North, too. The Sudbury-based business consultant with L'Oréal Professional and Pureology said colours that shift from root to tip are ultra-trendy right now.
Hair stylists from across Northern Ontario attended a workshop in Sudbury at the end of September to learn how to bring the look to their clients. Top artists from across the province were in charge of sharing the techniques and tricks.
“You can't just paint half your head one colour,” Garry said.
“I've fought very hard to get education in the North,” Garry said. The result is big-city techniques applied in smaller Northern towns and communities. “The consumer doesn't have to go to Toronto to get the latest look.”
The techniques hairdressers learned can be applied using any line of products — Garry said the workshop was intended to simply further educate hairstylists here.
“Education ignites passion back to the stylist,” she said.
What's hot this season
Colours that transform along the shaft of the hair are hot for fall, according to Garry. Some of the hot combinations include deep copper roots with light red tips, and dark chocolate roots with a violet finish.
The difference in colour increases texture in hair, and creates the illusion of volume. Garry said the trend involves “less commitment to highlights” and can be done on any length of hair.
