Hot New Trends in Hair
 
We all know that trends in hair styling come and go at breakneck pace in some instances, and some of these trends are short-lived. So, if you want to be on the leading edge, you have to keep your eyes and ears open. Well, this season offers four new hair trends that can give your look a boost (and two of them do it without a major commitment).
 
The newest trends in hair styling are Feather Extensions, Ombre Color, Smash Color, and Chalking. All of these techniques allow you to add a bit of excitement to your look and with the exception of ombre color, the looks are simple and don’t necessarily require a major commitment. So let’s take a look at what these trends are exactly:
 
Ombre Color
 
The Ombre Color technique is where the hair color gradually lightens from the natural darker shade to a lighter hue as the eye travels down the length of the shaft. The look has been seen on Drew Barrymore, Jessica Biel, and tennis star Serena Williams.
 
How to Get It:
 
Drew Barrymore The Ombre technique is a process by which the hair is gradually lightened by starting at the ends and adding the lightening mixture slowly up the length of the hair so that the ends get lighter than the areas above it. Once the color gradient has been lifted to the levels you want, then you can apply a toner to give the lightened hair the tint you want – from a warm, spicy tone, to a golden blonde color.
 
It’s definitely a look you want to go to your stylist for, since you don’t want to risk ending up with clear lines of demarcation because you didn’t expand the color area gradually enough.
 
Feather Extensions:
 
The common parlance calls this technique of fashion extensions “feathering”, but only among those who are not hair professionals. Professionals know that feathering refers to a texturing techniques made famous by Farrah Fawcett in her heyday with “Charlie’s Angels”. These feather extensions use actual slim rooster feathers in a variety of colors and patterns as extensions to be attached into the natural hair as accent pieces.
 
How to Get It:
 
The technique has become so popular that many places are having difficulty keeping the feathers in stock. And for best results and longest-lasting wear, it’s generally recommended that you see an extensions specialist about having the feathers placed in the hair. Professionally, done, the extensions can last as much as 4 months, and can be shampooed the way normal hair is shampooed (though you do need to be very gentle).
 
Some companies also make “in-home” kits that will allow you to place feather extensions in your hair yourself (which can save you money) by using small cylindrical clips that are clamped closed to secure them using a crimping tool. These make the extension feathers convenient in that you can dress up a look quickly and easily, and resume your normal styling at the start of the work week.
 
Smash Haircolor
 
Smash haircolor is a lot like it sounds. You simply take the color that you want to use (typically a bold accent color) smash a handful of it into the hair at the area you want to have colored. The result is a “splash” of color targeted to a specific area. The vibrance and boldness of the color depend on the formulation and the length of time the color is allowed to process.
 
How to Get It:
 
You can take any hair color mixture and apply it a handful and smash it into the hair. The goal is generally to keep the color on the outer ends of the hair, giving a halo of color around the head.
 
Chalking
 
While the other techniques listed are meant to last for days or weeks, chalking is a technique that is truly temporary. It involved using artists’ chalk sticks to add a surface layer of color to locks of hair.
 
How to Get It:
 
You simply take artists’ chalk and wet it with water, then use it on damp strands of hair to color in the hair with the colors you want added. You can make the color bolder by allowing the hair to dry a little and repeating the process – coloring the same areas repeatedly as desired. Since you are coloring the hair with chalk, you can easily use as many different colors as you wish, and can even – with practice – create patterns in the hair. Once the color is the way you want it, use hairspray to seal the color on the hair.
 
And best of all, once you’re ready to go back to normal, just shampoo the hair and it all washes away. {Although, since it is water-soluble, you will want to be careful to watch out for rain, lest you find your color running down onto your face.}
