22 Dec Hairstyle, Color Trend 2016, 2017, 2018: B/A Photos Starlight Balayage – Shimmery, Sparkly Highlights, Best New Salon Technique
Just when you thought you knew all there is to know about balayage… Butterfly Studio Salon Master Color Specialist/Loreal Professional artist Min Kim, in collaboration with Butterfly Studio Salon owner, Kattia Solano, introduces a new color trend to the market called Starlight Balayage.
Looking for extra glimmer this time of year? Of course you are! This new technique is a way to add a pop of shimmer to your hair without changing what you already like about it. Fight the winter blues by unleashing the star in you with the new winter balayage option that will light up your mane with a customizable, festive shimmer. For those that love more sparkle, that extra twinkle is achieved with a multi-star application. This technique is focused on parting and painting hair in the shape of a star – resulting in sparkly low maintenance color for the holidays and beyond. This technique can easily be adjusted to fit the level of shine, brightness, and attention you want to bring to your face. Keep it simple and subdued with one star at your face and/or part.
Whether you want to illuminate your favorite facial feature, create a face frame/frame the face, or show off a fabulous hair part – this technique can be easy customized for your preference and the hand-painted, free-hand sweeps of color can be as natural or pronounced as you wish. Butterfly Studio Salon highly recommends it for someone who hasn’t had color – it’s a comfortable place to start for the first time and an easy introduction to highlights. You can always go bolder later, or play with a look that fades to give just the ends more boldness. There’s so many ways to brighten up!
On the lighter hair example: This take on the Starlight Starbright technique includes multiple star patterned and pointed applications to achieve a more noticeable twinkle on the hair. The results are super low maintenance but just as dazzling. It’s another great way to balayage the winter blues away!
