Hot New Trend for 2015 – Block Hair Coloring
Each new season brings about numerous trends that come and go as far as hair styles and coloring techniques – one of the most popular ones this season is block hair coloring. Also known as color blocking or block coloring, it involves using two or more, bdifferent shades to color the hair in large sections or ‘blocks.’
A Bespoke Styling Option
Block hair coloring can be performed in a variety of ways so that no two people have the same combination of colors or even the same design layout performed. For example, some people may only want to color block the fringe area; some may prefer to do the fringe as well as the center section of longer hair that goes across the head, while others may wish to use a combination of different and bright colors all over the head to ensure that they stand out. There are virtually no rules or limits with regards to how block hair coloring can be done – in fact, the only limit lies with the guest’s and stylist’s imagination.
Suitable for All Hair Styles and Colors
One of the main advantages of hair color blocking is that it can be performed on hair of virtually any length or style, making it one of the most versatile and customizable options. Guests with longer hair will be able to opt for having larger or more blocked sections than those with shorter hair. However, a shorter, cropped style that has been blocked with a few different colors will end up looking just as attractive as a longer style that goes below shoulder length, which has only been blocked with 2 different colors.
Different Ideas for Color Blocking
Although some of the most popular options for this coloring technique include doing the fringe or a section on each side of the head in a contrasting color to the rest of the hair, creating a “Peek-a boo” effect, there are many other ways in which it can be done. These include coloring a border around the outer edges or performing surface coloring. Another popular option involves using a contrasting color on the underlying layer of hair, while doing the outer layer in a different color. This enables the underlying color to become visible whenever the head is moved.
Guests who would like to have color blocking done on their hair should ensure that they have it done by a reputable and professional stylist or salon, as this will ensure that it is performed properly and effectively. It is also essential for an appointment to be scheduled in order to have color blocking service performed, as it normally requires more time than traditional color services.
