An effect glow that radiates from the hair to the face and vice versa. This is the goal of hair lightening, who kiss them just like the sun does during the summer. All thanks to a skilful strategic application of the brightness revealing color.
Among the new hair lightening techniques in view of spring there is Shadowing, designed by Tom Connell, Hair Art Director of Davines, who has chosen to play with color in an unusual way, creating effects opposite to the traditional hair contouring. If, in fact, traditionally the hair strands around the face are made lighter, shadowing reverses the rules and leaves them dark, illuminating everything else.
The result is a brown intense and vibrant that combines with reflections caramel and hazelnut. But shadowing especially enhances the Grey. The dark sections enhance the remaining color, generating a visual effect in which the light gray acquires even more brightness and the hair shines with greater body and volume. Darker colored locks appear in unexpected places, giving movement to the entire cut and giving a effect silver brilliant that wards off the granny look.
For spring-summer, the traditional balayage it evolves while remaining faithful to its origins. Born in France in 70’s to overcome the problem of backcombing hair during bleaching treatments thanks to vertical hair lightening, mainly done freehand or with the aid of a comb, thanks to the creative team of L’Oréal Professionnel it becomes the new French Balayage. The freehand lightening that allows you to obtain a totally neutralized result is enriched with an extra shine and a final effect à la francaise.
This finish is achieved by mixing different techniques that add depth and dimension to the hair, as well as multiple shades of contrasts which give even more naturalness to the look.

As with any self-respecting lightening, the goal is to achieve naturalness of color and shape. An effect that with mousy hair is enhanced byabsence of contrasts and the choice of very similar color tones. Unlike the canonical balayage, in mousy hair the nuances start from the roots and reach the tips, with a shade of color that respects the starting point and the tone of theincarnate.
