You may have heard of ombré and balayage, but have you heard of tiger eyes, melted blonde and other kinds of color melting? Try these new 2017 hair trends for more natural-looking highlights.
Hair stylist Francky L'official is a model himself managed by MSA Models modeling agency, and he has an impressive clientele of celebrities including Victoria's Secret models, Milla Jovovich, Kate Beckinsale and of course, other models from MSA Models. The industry veteran says the big trends right now are natural browns and variations of color melting. He currently works at Val More Salon in the Upper East Side in Manhattan.
"We have what we call the 'tiger eyes' -- with a base brown but with some pieces slightly lighter and some much lighter."
Color melting can be a result of balayage (a combination of highlights and ombré) but with three colors instead of two. All colors blend seamlessly, even with different tones.
"It's like basically dropping paint on your hair and it leak, then you play with the comb to make a different dimension from the roots to the end," Francky said.
The stylist says he always pushes his clients to try different colors and styles.
"If you have sex all the time in the same position, you get bored. It’s the same for your hair."
