TONES ON TREND: THE GOLDEN HOUR

Hair services get a golden glow as the latest hair colour trend is all about gold blondes. 

The Golden Hourthat time just after sunrise and a few moments before sunset, casts the most flattering soft light, enhancing the skin and hair tones. It’s this special light that has forever enticed film-makers and photographers to take advantage of these precious minutes to achieve their best shots. 

It’s therefore not surprising when TIGI’s colour experts were creating new ideas and formulas for this season, they looked to the Golden Hour for their inspiration. 

Embrace golden tones this season!

We say embrace the golden hair colour!

TIGI EuropeanTechnical Director, Kerrie O’Reilly explains the latest trend for golden blonde hair colour.

“This season we’re embracing gorgeous golden and antique copper tones. I’ve always had a soft spot for warmer hues,  and the way we’re using colour so that it can  look opulent, bright and unsaturated  is really refreshing and very exciting. There’s also something really liberating about working with the undertone,  and favouring it, rather than working against it. It’s how  summer should feel, don’t you agree? Try intermixing bespoke combinations of  gold and copper shades to create a customised result for each client’s  suitability.” ​

These new golden tones are flattering to almost everyone and work well on all hair lengths and styles, but look fabulous with longer, looser looks. Many clients are embracing slightly longer hairstyles, having grown their hair over the last year, and a refreshed, warm colour tone could be just the thing to enliven their overall look.

We all raved about Billie Eilish’s fabulous new blonde look, so we’re taking her as one of our colour heroes this season as we dream of warm sunshine and a golden glow.
