Finally competition for the unbeatable sweep?
Capillary technique acclaimed by more than one person who wishes to lighten their hair and obtain a nice highlighted effect, sweeping has a lot to do. In 2022, we are indeed opting for hair frosting, a trend that is starting to take hold in hair salons and which promises to make everyone agree. Imagined by Stuart Marsh, colorist expert at the London salon Taylor Taylor, hair frosting or "hair icing" in French, is more subtle and natural.
The idea is to bleach fairly fine locks, individually, from the root to the tip, leaving the locks adjacent to the darker, so as to obtain several light touches that blend delicately with the rest of the hair. hair. In short, a "pepper and salt" effect, but more "baddie" style than granny style. As Refinery 21 explains, the lighter streaks should fall among the darker streaks, similar to "frost falling on a tree."
Halle Berry, Hailey Bieber, Sofia Richie, or Suki Waterhouse, many stars have succumbed to hair frosting. The advantage is that this technique will be suitable for all hair types, even if they are a little damaged, since only a few strands are bleached and not all of the hair. Easy to maintain and wear, it is the ideal color to adopt to obtain a "multidimensional" look, without the inconvenience of a balayage.
Want to take the leap? According to Stuart Marsh, you'll need to ask your colorist "to add 'cool tones' that contrast with your darker base color" and explain that you want "a more muted effect than traditional metallic highlights." Also remember to ask him to emphasize the locks that surround your face, in order to create a "natural contour" effect.
