If you’re like us, you’re long overdue for a trip to the salon because of sheer indecision. We spent every day dreaming of trying out the latest hair trends. Highlights of the playground? Sign us up. NS sliced bob? Chop all. Even modern mullet? Yep, there’s no hair color or cut trend we wouldn’t try (Thank you, Miley). Today, we’re looking for a slightly more subtle change – something light and airy for fall that doesn’t require too much upkeep or maintenance.
Enter the “money highlight”, a method that blends two-tone hair and super-soft balayage highlighter that instantly brightens and contours your face. Natalia Romaniuc, a colorist at Windle London.
Money was first popularized in the 1990s and has made a notable comeback recently. “The main inspiration for this reversal trend was probably the Geri Halliwell of the 90s,” says Romaniuc. “It was just tweaked and softened a bit to fit the 2021 market.”
“It’s a super flattering look because it brightens your face, accentuates your facial contours, and your own basic hair color,” Romaniuc explains. “Best of all, this technique works on any hair color and can really work for everyone, whether you’re a warm blonde or a cool, deep chocolate brown – you can make money by choosing a shade three to four shades lighter for full impact and often requires bleaching specific areas of hair first.”
Money highlights are a hot emerging trend, as evidenced by their popularity on TikTokRomaniuc adds, with customers wanting to embrace the new and exciting interface comfortably. “We can now work with our clients’ more natural colors and offer them services like coin highlighting to instantly update their look and feel with very little effort – and of course. , less time spent sitting in chairs, which means they are more affordable and maintainable,” she said. In fact, money pieces can act as a quick addition to your already existing highlights “My clients at Windle are incorporating this trend into their usual balayage colors, where we just enhanced the position of the highlights and freehand around the face.”
So how to maintain a view? “The level of shine associated with highlighters means you should use gentle, natural shampoos that don’t weigh your hair or affect color,” advises Romaniuc. “After all, you wouldn’t buy a Gucci dress then wash it with dish soap, would you?”
