Caramel colored hair
Needless to say it again: the autumn season makes us want to change something of our look; will be the leaves with a thousand veins, the wraparound scarves or the frequent rains, but autumn is the season of transformation par excellence. And for this year the caramel comes to inspire us! The color nuance is obviously inspired by melted sugar, with brown and warm tones, with some golden reflections. Are you curious to know how to obtain a perfect caramel color? Here are the tips of the experts.
Who does caramel hair look good
Dario Manzan and Carlo di Donato – creative directors of Wella – tell us: “Certainly this color is more suitable for women with a warm complexion, while it goes in contrast to those who have the skin of porcelain”. It is no coincidence that the caramel-colored proponents on the head have always been Beyoncé and Jennifer Lopez.
To consider is also the base from which we start to reach a warm shade like that of the caramel color ; according to the program’s hairstylist Matrix , Roberto Vitaro, it is very important to consider this aspect for the perfect achievement of the color we are looking for: “The bases that best marry the caramel tone are light brown and hair. dark golden-copper blonde. On the other hand, black and dark brown bases tend not to emphasize the caramel nuance “.
Another aspect to consider, however, is the cut. In this regard, the expert says: “Caramel is perfect on a long bob, because it emphasizes the hair, giving volume and a very natural effect. Avoid it, however, if your cut is an undercut, because this look does not allow the color to stand out properly ”.
How to obtain the desired effect
As in all our articles, we always advise you to rely on a professional hairdresser , especially when it comes to colors. The experts Wella recommend to obtain a perfect caramel-colored hair: “The spot of light and color can be obtained by proceeding freehand, dirtying only the perimeters close to the face for a very soft and natural effect, more brightness on the face. Alternatively, it is possible to create ad hoc sections closed in foil for a more decisive and defined effect. Again, freehand, using a brush to create shaded effects on longer hair, always with a very natural and chic effect “.
Once you have reached the intensity of caramel that best suits you, you need to keep it as bright as possible for a long time, how to do it then? The routine requires that specific products be used , such as shampoo for colored hair, Vitaro tells us that it is also worth investing in balsam and biphasic spray-shake because “ They protect the dyed by heat sources (hairdryer, straightener, curling iron) and by the sun “.
But be careful! “Even the method of drying after cleansing matters a lot in maintaining the bright color” , add Manzan and Donato. The right temperature, therefore, is intermediate, never too high because it dulls and burns the hair and, of course, the hairdryer must always be kept at a safe distance.
