Not a day goes by without a new hair color trend, it stays that way even in the cold season. Totally hip at the moment: the “Twilighting” color trend. We'll tell you what's behind the latest hype and which type of color suits you particularly well.
Ombré, dip-dye, and balayage should already be familiar to most beauty fans. Now the list of different hair coloring techniques is expanded to include "twilighting". But if the latest hair color trend makes you think of vampires, Edward Cullen, and big feelings, I'm afraid I have to disappoint you.
The trend from the USA does not take its name from the famous book and film series! The color is only called "twilight" because its gold shimmering highlights are reminiscent of the sun disappearing behind the horizon. To be precise, the new color trend is a mixture of balayage and babylights, i.e. light highlights on mostly brunette hair as a starting point. Therefore, the shade is perfect for those who have naturally brown hair and want a subtle change.
Instead of one and the same color, we have been using natural looks and great shimmer effects in our hair for years. Luckily, thanks to balayage and babylights, that’s no problem either! The first is about achieving a natural color effect by selecting individual strands and emphasizing them to different degrees. The special thing about this is that the color is "swept" into the hair with a brush. With baby lights, only a few color accents are set, but above all the strands on the left and right of the face are colored lighter.
Both coloring techniques come together in “twilighting”. The result: A three-dimensional, intense, and lively look and a hair color that conjures up a fresh glow on our face and not only lets us shine but also visually flatters and rejuvenates.
The new trendy hair color is not only totally natural but also super uncomplicated and is perfect for all brunettes who want a little style update in winter without experimenting wildly with colors. Best of all: Babylights don't damage your hair and you don't have to worry about hair breakage and split ends.
Of course, avoiding chunky strands and achieving a natural look requires skill and, above all, the trained eye of a professional. For the perfect “twilighting” result, you should definitely go to a specialist! Only a hairdresser knows exactly which color nuances suit you and has sufficient experience with the special balayage technique.
