1. Chunky Highlights in Vibrant Colours
One of the most popular colouring techniques for this trend involves highlighting the hair. And, often, when you want creative colours to pop, a light base is needed to boost intensity. So, try a foiling technique on large sections of hair with BlondorPlex, taking chunky slices and pre-lightening them before those bright colours are applied. Why BlondorPlex? Because not only does it give you up to nine levels of lift, but it also strengthens the internal hair bonds through the lightening process, while offering up to 97% less hair breakage*. You can scatter the highlights throughout the hair, or even try bold face-framing highlights. Talk your client through their gemini hair options, then get foiling.
2. Dip-Dye with Bright Fashion Colours
A bold dip-dye – as seen in this look by Wella Professionals Global Ambassador James Earnshaw – is another great option. Paint one shade through the roots to mid-lengths, then go for an even bolder hue on the mid-lengths and ends. If the shade you're aiming for is lighter or brighter than the base, again you'll need to pre-lighten locks to help the colour stand out. Then apply your client's chosen gemini hair hues, taking care not to blend them together if you want a stronger dip-dye line.
3. Half and Half Blocks of Colour
For the biggest, boldest gemini-inspired colour blocks, try a half and half hair creation. Choose one bright shade for the left side of the head and another vivid hue for the right side of the head. This trend works best with a centre parting, so take the time to split the sections evenly before you paint. Then, for maximum impact, choose two dramatically different bold colours, like a jet black with a yellow.
