Shadow Lights are the new must-try hair color trend in 2022!
New year, new hair. The trend carousel turns and turns, but one characteristic remains: the new hair color has to be subtle and natural. The hair color trend for 2022 goes perfectly with this, which is so beautiful that it awakens impatience in you and makes you want to make an appointment in your trusted salon. Shadow Lights combine naturalness with freshness, depth, elegance, and comfort and are therefore exactly what we are longing for now. And the new hair color has another advantage: it gives the volume of the strands!
If you look at the current fashion and beauty trends, you quickly see that they reflect the needs of our time. After the home office and sweatpants, things will continue to be comfortable in 2022 – but much more elegant and with more sex appeal. '90s blocky strands are now on their hiatus, instead, shadow lights are the hair color trend we've been craving for so long. The special feature: the new hair color shines with contrasting shades, perfect blends, and extra soft transitions - and thus finally banishes wide, unnatural strands from the hair.
But not only the color itself is worth the trip to the salon, but also the fact that the hair color trend is super easy to care for and allows the strands to grow out gently, giving it many fans. It's perfect for anyone who likes highlights but doesn't want to keep touching up - because you only have to go to the hairdresser's every six months.
In order to create the natural trend hair color, one relies on multidimensional nuances that give the hair liveliness. Shadow lights are highlights that create particularly soft transitions through strands in different color shades. Contrasting or complementary tones, as well as different highs and lows, are set throughout the hair and create reflections there - even with very long hair. The end result is even more natural and softer than with balayage, for example.
"Depending on the hair structure, different strand types are selected for Shadow Lights," explains Wella color expert Stefan Scholz. “Micro Lights provide very subtle dimensions, making them perfect for fine hair to achieve extra natural highlights. The fine strands work for most hair types and tonalities. Wide strands are recommended for curly and very thick hair. Less high-contrast colors should be used here in order to achieve the right definition." In this way, depending on the hair structure and shade, the best result can be achieved for each individual wish.
