The hairdressers have finally reopened their salons. Once the perfect haircut has been found, there is hardly a topic that is more talkative than the right hair color - especially if you enjoy coloring and trends. However, previously popular variants such as cool silver and pink tones are a thing of the past and are being replaced by natural hair colors full of suppleness and shine. For 2021, experts are now predicting an effective makeover with cool toffee tones and highlights in caramel - at least for medium blonde and light brown tones. These are the basics of the new trend hair color, which is always reminiscent of creamy liqueurs and caramelized desserts. Non?
Those who are not quite sure about the ideal shade will find plenty of inspiration on the international runways. For example, designers such as Isabel Marant, Acne, Prada, Max Mara, and Fendi, who show toffee tones both as restrained, smooth cream liqueur nuances (Isabel Marant, Acne) and as bright honey and caramel tones (Fendi).
By the way: toffee tones work in medium blonde to light brown and both as an all-over coloration and as a subtle touch-up, and they also (finally) help the ashy natural tones to be more luminous. If you want to try out the trendy hair color first instead of coloring it permanently, you can opt for semi-permanent variants such as tints or color-enhancing conditioners. Noble toffee tone effects with light reflections that make the hair look caramelized can only be achieved by an experienced hairdresser!
Softness and shine are essential for toffee tones and highlights in caramel. This is why hair professionals recommend using particularly rich and color-coordinated care products that provide the hair with important nutrients and oils and protect the golden color components. Because while purple and silver shampoos are supposed to prevent an undesirable yellow or gold cast in cool blonde and brown tones, creamy caramel tones benefit from these warm light reflections. Star colorist Josh Woods, for example, has developed a deeply effective and color-enhancing "Caramel Gloss", which should immediately give toffee hair more luminosity and brilliance and bridge the time until the next visit to the hairdresser with semi-permanent color pigments.
