Splashlights!! Don’t be scared!


As a stylist, I have had so many different hair colors and styles but I have to say, this is the one that I have gotten the most positive reaction to. From conservative older women, to young artists!

Be brave and give it a try, who doesn’t want a little more shine in their life?

    Do you think that a lot of stylists will know how to do this? I am ready to switch from my ombre.

      I think that the best way to feel comfortable is just to schedule a consultation and get the vibe of your stylist. Since it is a new technique it might be intimidating but it is not any more technically difficult than doing an Ombré!
      Good luck! Wish you lived in Tampa and could just come to me!

    Hi Sara! Love your blog!! This hasn’t trended out to San Diego yet. Everyone is stuck on the ombre. I feel as though it is clear the ombre is a hair style that came out of a recession… glorified roots? I can’t seem to appreciate the trend. Everytime I see an ombre I want to stop the person, sit them down in my chair and put even just a FEW slices that bring the blond up to the root. Thoughts??

      Hi! Thank you so much for taking the time to check out the blog!!
      I know exactly what you mean about the Ombre, it’s for the people who really don’t like to maintain their color. Putting a few pieces all the way to the root is a great idea. I have seen that a lot especially in the front to keep their face brightened up. The balayage technique seems to be the most natural looking.
      Splashlights might be the new thing, but they are just as low on the maintenance scale! It’s just a simple banding of color, as opposed to the Ombre being the light all the way through the ends. This hasn’t taken off in Tampa yet either, hahaha. But I will say! That placing a splashlight in a blunt, straight across fringe really does bring in the illusion of shine. We will see what is next!
      Here’s a to Redkens collection of “splashlights”, if you scroll down you can see their fringelights, boldlights and spotlights.

      What do you see trending the most in San Diego?!
