Move aside ombre, balayage and say HELLO to Lived-In Color, the latest hair trend that everyone is talking about. The lived-in color is best described by The Cut as “made-up words like bronde or blondette best describe the effect. The end of a strand will look ashy blonde, the one next to it, ashy brunette, and the root, a solid brown. But seen a step back, these strands somehow work together to form a hair waterfall of color.”
It’s a lovely mishmash of both styles to give your hair that au naturel look. To start off, my stylist Nic had to bleach the bottom layers first. That’s how you get the gorgeous cool ashy blonde at the bottom. Incorporating the Balayage’s french technique of application, Nic then painstakingly paints each individual strand with a brush to create the natural-looking highlights.
After washing off, the rest of the cool ash color was used for my entire hair length. And due to the bleached ends, you can expect the ash brown to show up more vividly at the bottom. This unique technique creates a waterfall of colors in your hair that is natural-looking. The cool ash shade blurs and graduates into an ashy brown followed by solid brown at the roots.
This was the shade that was used:
Thanks to the Mucota Scena 3 treatment at the end, I was able to achieve soft and smooth locks.
And the result? Amazing! Just look at how natural the myriad of colors look together.
