Lighten Up for the Summer Months

By May 6, 2016 No Comments

With the weather finally staying warm, it’s time to talk about the upcoming summer trends. At Salon Antoine in Fairfax, VA, we’ve already started mixing the Volume 30 developer and stocking up on toner but, for some of our clients, blonde just isn’t right for their complexion. Our well-trained staff is here to help those people out — those that are dying to try something lighter that will still look flattering. Don’t fret! We’ve got some great options for you, ones that were highlighted during several fashion shows this season.

Take it All Off

Like a great pair of nude pumps, there’s something classy and ethereal about nude hair. It’s an art, also, and uses a lovely mixture of cool and warm tones to cancel each other out and create a cascade of café au lait locks that compliments every skin color and clothing style. So, if this is your first time going light, choosing nude hair is a great choice – one you can feel sure will flatter your skin tone, highlight the color of your eyes, and look elegant. You’ll be red-carpet-ready!

Rose Gold isn’t Just for Jewelry

This swoon-worthy trend is one we at Salon Antoine hope sticks around. From Youtubers to runway models, this look is all the rage right now and is an alternative to the typical blonde summer ‘dos. What’s nice about this color is that it can be done on medium-to-light blonde hair – you won’t have to over-bleach to get this warm, peachy-pink look, which is always a nice perk. Just like with jewelry, this hair color feels timeless.

Feeling Flamboyage?

If you really want to dabble in the world of blonde but are quaking in your fashionable booties, there are several “starter” options for you that branch off from the balayage technique. From the French word “to sweep or paint”, balayage involves creating a soft lightening of the hair for a sun-kissed effect, only letting the color fully saturate at the end. This chic trend has several offsets that may pique your interest, as well, and the first one is Flamboyage. This offshoot combines balayage and ombre for a bit more of a dramatic difference in color from top to bottom – you can keep your darker hair around your face and heavily lighten up the ends, getting that summery blonde you’ve been dreaming of!
