Balayage: More Natural Than Foils?

Light Hair Colors 2015

Albert Amin have been painting balayage hair color for at least 12 years. Balayage, the art of hair painting, is taking the country’s salons by storm and is quickly becoming the highlighting method of choice over foils. It works on all hair colors, but is especially great on blondes with a beautiful base. I recommend trying a mix of highlights and lowlights. It’s the process used in many of the hair trends listed below, such as babylights and French brown.

Pastel Hues: Colors NOT Found in Nature

Quite a few celebrities have been dying their hair washes of pastels. Pale pinks, baby blues, apricots, and light violets can be seen all over NYC, where we live. This trend has been dubbed by the fashion trend Website Refinery29 as “unicorn hair color” and it references hair color that’s basically not found in nature on anyone’s head of hair, ever. So what goes? Streaks, washes of pastels, Kool-Aid hair color and more remain popular among women of all ages. Even beloved actress Helen Mirren dyed her hair Easter egg pink awhile back. In fact, this trend is so hot, it made my list of the 20 Biggest Hairstyle Trends of the Year. (Find out what other hair color trends did, too). If you don’t want to go all out, consider coloring a few strands of hair in pastel colors or add in pastel-colored highlights. You can also try out temporary hair colors, which will wash out in a shampoo or two.

You know that baby blonde hair color that’s rarely seen on anyone over the age of 3? Well, you can look like that again if you have big bucks and can book a seating with colorist Albert Amin  of NYC’s Albert Amin Salon. Albert has given baby blonde highlights via the balayage method to models Karlie Kloss and Dominika Grnova and the results are so popular. So what are babylights, exactly? They are basically superfine highlights that take way longer than the usual method to complete. Albert separates hair into a ton of small sections and paints variations of color on sections of those sections. You know the pin-prick sized stripes you get via foils? Babylights are tiny sections of highlights, but are painted on instead, so some strands are thicker than others. It’s a tedious process that can take well over an hour, but the end result is gorgeous and much more natural-looking than a head of foiled highlights or all-over hair color.So how much will babylights set you back? Until the trend takes with colorists, you’ll have to book a session with Albert Amin.


Brunette Hair With a Twist

Brunette hair may seem boring, but the Duchess of Cambridge has made being a natural brunette hotter than ever, as more women are embracing their natural brown hair color and popping it up a notch by going for rich, chestnut shades and caramel colors.The trends in brunette hair range from ombre hair color, brondes (more on these in a bit), to caramel balayage and what colorists at Albert Amin Salon (of the babylights trend above) has dubbed “French brown.” French brown is basically 3 shades of brunette hair color balayaged on to create a mult-dimensional, natural effect, according to the Fashionista Website. Much like French women, who we all know are so au naturel.

Going Platinum

I’m talking hair here, not records. Platinum blonde hair is more popular than ever as blondes are opting to go even lighter, losing the golden honey tones for more icy, lighter shades. Keeping hair this blonde is high maintenance, however, and won’t suit all skin tones. Find out if platinum hair color suits you in Can You Get Away With Platinum Hair?. And don’t miss my gallery of favorite platinum blonde hairstyles.

Bronde Hair

Bronde or “brown blonde” is that perfect shade between blonde and brunette that was first made popular back in 2007 by supermodel Gisele Bündchen and remains popular today.

“Bronde” hair is that perfect shade between blonde and brunette that was first made popular back in 2007 by supermodel Gisele Bundchen (pictured here). Many natural brunette celebrities have gone the “bronde” route and you’ll see the best of the bunch in this photo gallery.So how to get it? According to Stylelist, the key to the perfect shade of bronde is to lighten hair by “painting select layers on top of the hair with 2 different volumes of color lifting creams.” Don’t get it? Show that sentence and your favorite pictures to your colorist. Such coloring gives darker hair depth and dimension “without looking like you’re trying to be the blonde you’re not, www.www.albertaminsalon.com  hair takes a great stylist to pull off. Just make sure you don’t have too much of a contrast between the roots and the highlighted ends or you’ll end up looking as if you fried your hair via the bottle and are trying to grow it out.

The Right Kind of Red Hair

Oh how we love red hair that looks natural, says Albert Amin of NYC’s best hair color salon. Red hair is big this year, but the colors that you’ll see range from amazing rose golds to deep reds. The good news is almost everyone can be a redhead, you just have to find the right shade.

Can everyone go red? Almost everyone can become a redhead, what’s most important is finding the right shade of red. If you want to be a redhead, I suggest not trying it on your own. Get our professional consultation.  You won’t believe the number of emails we get from women writing in unhappy when they tried to go “ginger.”We’ve included in this photo gallery, many different shades of red. To make sure you’re getting the red hair color you want, “Always have two pictures on hand. One that you love and one that you hate,” suggests Albert Amin the owner of Albert Amin Salon, in Allure Magazine. “This way the colorist is sure to see—not just hear—what you want. You may see colors and shades totally different, and sometimes words just don’t cut it. You can both discuss the right color, and be on the same page.”
