In the midst of the delicious aroma of cakes and cookies, you also need to think of your Christmas Party hair look that would go with glittery shadows and lip colors. We asked Melissa Maloney, the balayage artist, about trending hair colors for this Christmas, and she didn’t hold back in helping us undecisive lot. Keep on scrolling to read about the most raved about Christmas hair colors and how Melissa achieves the look.
Forget the highlights, we have the new winner for this Christmas. This Hazelnut Dark Roast look is what you need to get for the big party.
A perfect shade for brunettes, this subtle highlight adds gloss and lift to your hair without adding in brighter shades. Find out the formula breakdown by Melissa below and get yourself the exact same look:
Retouch: GK Hair Juvexin Cream Color 4.0 with GK Hair Developer 20 Vol
Foilyage with Juvexin Lightening Powder+ and GK Hair Developer 20 Vol
Root Smudge: GK Hair Juvexin Cream Color 4.01 with GK Hair Developer 8 Vol
Gloss: GK Hair Juvexin Cream Color 8.7, 7.7, and 8.12 (equal parts) with GK Hair Developer 8 Vol
“Warm tones are always big for fall and winter, but I have never had so many people asking for rich tones,” says Melissa. A subtle melt in deep auburn with a dark brunette is a hit for this Christmas.
Not only does it add a soft dimension to your hair, but also takes the basic brunette up a notch with an edgy deep auburn gloss. Here’s how Melissa creates this gorgeous blend with Juvexin Cream Colors.
Root Smudge: GK Hair Juvexin Cream Color 4 (Brown) & 4.93 (Coffee) with GK Hair Developer 8 Vol.
Gloss: GK Hair Juvexin Cream Color, 12g 6.4 (Dark Copper Brown), 12g 8.43 (Golden Copper), 10g 7.64 (Copper Red Blonde), and 10g 7.99 (Cinnamon) with GK Hair Developer 8 Vol.
Looks like the Copper blend is high on trend, and we’re all in awe of this beautiful dimension created by Melissa: “Typically when we lighten hair, we are thinking about all of the “rules” we know to avoid warmth. But what I love about working with coppers is that I get to break all the rules and do everything I can to create warmth.”
What’s even better is that this look can be easily achieved by a bit of a lightener and a developer. Melissa uses GK Hair Juvexin Lightening Powder+ and GK Hair Developer 10 Vol with the perfect consistency and lift for these blending techniques. Save this for later to show your stylist, and you’re all set for Christmas.
The perfect blend of coffee and cream, this color melt gives your hair a gorgeous gloss and adds depth to this rich brown.
“The cream base and powerful pigments in GK Hair Juvexin Cream Color was the perfect choice for this blendy melt of depth and richness”, says Melissa.
