Recent Work and Some Thoughts On 2017 Hair Trends...

   Hello all! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and that you're ready to jump into 2017 head first.  I know that I am. (January PUT ME THROUGH THE WRINGER at work.) I'm going to share some fun work I've done in recent weeks...and also talk about the subtle shifts in hair color trends this year. 

   2017 will is going to see a huge shift from icy blondes to progressive beige tones. This is a pendulum situation.  We dig cool tones for a few years then shift back to warmth...tale as old as time.

   The range of beige tones isn't all that vast. A level 10 to 8 is the sweet spot. Anything darker you would have to over compensate with deep ash tones.  One thing that beige should never be is muddy.

   For the love of god. Why was everyone scared of golden hair for so long? I'm not talking level 8 orange...but seriously, some gold in those level 9/10 highlights is flattering on ALMOST everyone.

   Dark roots are here to stay, but the contrast is going to be much more subtle.  People really like the lack of maintenance and I don't see it going away any time soon.

   Rose gold is still in the middle of it's 15 minutes...but the look is getting dustier and dustier.  Spring and Summer will see a dramatic shift to clear cut corals again...verging on orange.

   I've notices red heads shifting hardcore away from violet tones and going back to honest to goodness reds and coppers.  I really think that Emma Stone is responsible, and I love it.

   So that is where I think hair color is moving right now. A general shift toward warmth in general.  I'm really excited to see some very pale warmth, especially since Wella has recently released some exciting warm colors at a level 10.  What do you think we're going to see in 2017?
