Hair Colour Techniques, Trends, and Shades to watch out in 2021

Getting a new look with different hair colours is more fun than one can imagine. If you want to try something new, depending on the season, mood, or a momentous occasion, it is good to try something new. The easiest and most noticeable change can occur by simply changing your hair colour and trying a unique style. But the question is which hair colour would suit me? 

The idea is not to follow a trend blindly. Every one of us is unique. For example, a hair colour that looks great on straight hair will look different from someone with curly hair. So it’s imperative to keep in mind the original shade of your hair colour, hair type, complexion, personality type, profession, and most importantly, how much time are you ready to devote to looking after your coloured hair? 

What are Hair Colours?

Hair colours are applied to change the natural colour of your hair and give you a different look. Hair colours came into vogue with a single purpose of covering white or grey hair. But later, as the fashion industry started evolving and capitalised on the latent need in people to look different. That gave birth to this hair colour industry where every age group gets the freedom to choose a hair colour she loves.

The love for hair colour is so much, and the need is so diverse; every day, there is a new hair colour trend with new launches, new shades, and new techniques. 

Hair Colour techniques: 

There are many hair colour techniques, broadly categorised as Balayage, lowlights, highlights, ombre, sombre, and bronde. If you want to colour your hair at home, you can watch several online video tutorials following any techniques. Also, the hair colour type that you select should be basis your comfort.

 If you are a beginner, start with temporary colour. As the name suggests, it is a safe experiment, to begin with as they fade with each wash. 

Choose a colour based on your expertise in application and understanding of hair colours that work for you. Keep in mind your skin type, complexion, hair texture and age. Look for a semi-permanent, demi-permanent or permanent hair colour shade and apply one popular technique. 

Semi-permanent hair colour contains no ammonia. It is usually too mild to cover grey. But it helps to add sheen and restores fading colour. Usually washes off in 5 to 10 washes. 

Demi-Permanent hair colour is a notch stronger than semi-permanent hair colour. It helps blend highlights, rejuvenates fading hair colour, adds colour to blonde or bleached hair, darkens hair colour shades and balances between new and old hair colours by filling up the gaps that require a refresh. It contains low ammonia and washes off between 12 to 24 washes. 

Permanent hair colour- The strongest and the most difficult to remove. This hair colour changes the shade, alters your personality totally from making you a brunette from blonde, and covers grey wonderfully. It contains ammonia and does not wash off for a very long time. It chemically changes the colour of the hair shaft through cuticles, and hence growing it out is the best way to remove this colour. So accurate its name, it may stay with you for a very long time.
