Hair colour trends and techniques have grown wildly over the past few years. Styles that were tried and true are no longer enough; now every client requires a high level of customization for each and every look. From choosing the specific shade to tailoring placement based on cheekbones or the latest haircut — a brush stroke here or a foil there can completely change the entire look. As we celebrate the latest blonde trends for summer 2023 we’re breaking down some of our top blonding tips alongside our favourite blonde trends and aftercare advice.
Blonding Tips with Aloxxi
The biggest debate when beginning a blonding service on your client usually starts with using foils versus open-air techniques. From here, it comes down to how many foils, the weaving pattern and sectioning and then deciding on which lightener to use. Depending on the level of lift you’re after and the placement, Aloxxi’s Blonde78™ Lighteners have a range of options to enhance your creation.
Which Aloxxi Blonde 78™ lightener to use for blonding?
- White Lightener — Up to 7 levels of lift.
A white powder lightener ideal for colour corrections or when enhancing warm or natural tones.
- Blue Lightener — Up to 7 levels of lift.
Counteract warmth and create cool, platinum, or icy results with this lightening. Ideal to use on clients who naturally pull warm when the desired result is neutral brunette or platinum blonde.
- Ultra Lightener — Up to 9 levels of lift.
Formulated with a white powder, this lightener is ideal for resistant bases, coarse hair, or when extra lift is needed.
- Charcoal CreamLightener — Up to 9 levels of lift.
This lightener is one of our favourites for all blonding techniques because it does a lot of the prep work for you! It lifts and tones simultaneously to ensure the lightened result is purified and free of unwanted warm tones. When applied to levels 1-5, hair is pre-toned to a natural color result. When applied to levels 6 or lighter, it will create an ash tone result.
On-Trend Blonde Inspiration
Whenever you want to enhance a haircut, it is essential to add enough highs and lows throughout your blonde. By adding a few well-placed foils throughout to create a pop of colour, you’ll also notice natural lows add depth.
