Looks like the latest hair color trend is called CHUNKING, beauties! And it’s more of a ’90s hair revival than anything else. We caught up with Master Colorist for Ted Gibson Beauty/L’Oréal Professionnel Brand Ambassador Jason Backe as he talks us through the nostalgic hair color trend (Can we talk about The Rachel? Not so much the cut, but those highlights, Jen!), his inspiration for sexy, bold hair and why so many women are ready for a change!

“The Rachel will never die!”

The modern take on highlights framing the face was seen during the Carmen Marc Valvo 25th Anniversary NYFW show, where Ted himself created the “50 Shades of Gray moment” on the models with a silver streak on one side of the head (see image above). Read on to find out how you can rock this hair color trend for 2014 and beyond!

“In an era of Ombré and Balayage, as I scroll through Instagram, I’m starting to feel like it all looks the same,” explains  says Jason. “Yes, it’s gorgeous. Yes, it’s going to be around for a long time. And yes, it will pay the mortgage honey! That said, I’m getting a little bored of it which has led me to being inspired by hair color from the ‘90s. It’s bold, it’s sexy and makes a statement. After all, your number one accessory — your hair — is your biggest statement.

“When I was a young colorist in NYC, there was one person to look up to: Brad Johns,” boasts Jason. “As far as color was concerned, he was THE MAN! At the time he was famous for “Chunking” and the “Butter Blond” (think Carolyn Bessette Kennedy). I am really inspired by his work and I’m having a lot of fun using his inspiration to create my own version of sexy, bold hair color that says something about who you are when you walk in the room.”

“This is a new trend I am seeing on the young and chic around the city — it’s catching on because people want to do something different,” explains Jason. “When every girl you know has ombré, it’s time to step out and be unique. The ‘90s also have a huge influence in fashion right now, so it only makes sense that it will translate to hair.

“I’m super-excited about this trend right now and am loving the different variations of the look that I’ve been seeing,” exclaims Jason. “There are so many possibilities – don’t be afraid to try it! It would make for an amazing fresh look for the holiday season!”

Unlike fragrance or cosmetic sets, skincare gifts can please even the most pickiest of beauty lovers, as they contain beauty treats that transform and beautify your skin in a flash. So, if heavy-duty cleansers, ultra-smoothing creams and therapeutic lifesavers sound like your thing, try the First Aid Beauty Cheers To Fab Skin (available exclusively at Sephora stores and Sephora.com) for a healthier-looking complexion.

Kit Essentials ingredients Holiday Beauty Gift Idea Review: First Aid Beauty Cheers To Fab Skin Set - Face Cleanser Daily Essential, Radiance Pads, Ultra Repair Cream, Lip Therapy, Eye Duty Triple Remedy

First Aid Beauty has been known to be a brand that saves skin when it’s at its absolute worst. Yes, I’m even talking about blemish-prone, acne-ridden skin that shows no signs of relief. So no matter your skin concerns (hey there, dark circles!), this magical kit brings a bit of holiday magic to your face for an amazing price.

Inside the kit comes the famous Face Cleanser Daily Essential, which gently cleanses the skin from acne-causing dirt and impurities. Also preventing future flare-ups, this bad-boy will not have a negative effect even on the most sensitive of skin.

Want to keep blotchiness at bay? The Facial Radiance Pads combine lactic and glycolic acids to soothe irritable skin and allow Indian gooseberry, lemon peel and cucumber to brighten up sallow-looking skin. If dry and chapped skin is one of your worst #beautyproblems, try the Ultra Repair Cream, which works great against eczema, dermatitis and pilaris. When the temperatures begin to drop, the Ultra Repair Lip Therapy uses a paraben-free formula to hydrate, protect and soothe dry lips against the elements. Stash inside your purse for instant relief wherever you go.

Finally, treat your eyes to some intense therapy with the Eye Duty Triple Remedy product, which employs special ingredients to brighten, de-puff and smooth away fine lines and wrinkles. Just dab a little bit of product underneath your eyes and with continued use, expect to see more youthful, radiant-looking eyes in no time.

With the winter chill already here, it’s important to treat your beauty arsenal to some skin-saving goodies that keep your skin smooth and equally hydrated. Sure, certain skincare products can contain ingredients that strip your skin from necessary ingredients, but Murad is always one of those brands you can count on, leaving your skin feeling velvety smooth and fortified with necessary antioxidants essential for healthy, winter-ready skin.

Recently testing out the Murad Celebrate Smooth Kit, I was overjoyed to treat my skin to an early holiday gift, as each skin-boosting product gives my skin that amazing look and feel it deserves. Upon opening the kit, I was surprised at how colorful the inside of the bag was; its rainbow-galaxy design enticed me immediately to look for the goodies inside.

Dr. Murad Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum: Sponsored Review

To my surprise, first up was the Murad AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser (in a travel size) that uses 3 beneficiary acids to remove dead skin cells and give you a brighter, healthier-looking glow after each use.

Collagen also happens to be an important skincare-building block. So you bet I was totally enamored with the Murad Rapid Collagen Infusion product as it keeps your skin extra supple with its special formula filled with ceramides and fatty acids. For best results, apply onto your neck and face each night for plump and fuller-looking skin in the morning.

Need a new eye cream? Try the Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture For Eyes, which immediately delivers relief from dry and cracked skin underneath the delicate under eye tissue. Plus, standing tall against wrinkles and fine lines, you can use this baby for that anti-aging eye cream you’ve been desperately hoping for.

Finally comes my favorite item, the Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture to give even the driest skin extreme moisture. And with a non-greasy formula, you don’t have to worry about clogged pores and unwanted breakouts. It’s just pure and total hydration when using this all-day and all-night cream. Now available at The Murad Inclusive Health Spa and Murad Flagship Store.
