Not a week without a new hair color trend! Blondes in particular can look forward to a very special, new nuance in 2022: champagne blonde! We'll tell you what's behind the latest hype and which guys the color looks particularly good on.
When it comes to helping your faded and dull blonde to shine again with a few small steps, there are many different ways. Glossing, babylights, or a significant lightening with the popular Bayalage coloring technique. Whether it's a soft honey blonde, a cool, ashy tone, or a bold and trendy "Chanel Blonde" - there is the right color for every type. And yet in 2022, we have a whole new favorite shade: champagne blonde! And if you are now thinking of the sparkling, luxurious drink, you are absolutely right.
The trendy new color is also based on the elaborate balayage technique. This means that the hair is either partially or completely bleached and lightened. The hair is slightly backcombed at the roots and only sporadically interspersed with light highlights. This creates a bleaching effect that is as natural as possible. In the champagne blonde color trend, ashy tones are used above all and only provided with light babylights. They ensure that the look is even more lively and voluminous.
Then the highlights are covered with a gloss. This creates highlights in a wide variety of blonde nuances and makes the hair look particularly full, healthy, and supple.
The best thing about the shade? It looks very classy and natural - if it is colored correctly. The champagne blonde goes particularly well with pale faces with dark eyebrows. Because of the rather cool undertone, the color looks more natural and does not contrast too much with your complexion.
As light and easy as champagne blonde sounds, in theory, we would still recommend not daring any DIY experiments, but rather leaving it to your hairdresser. Only then can you avoid nasty coloring mishaps. Especially for the special balayage coloring technique, requires the steady hand and the practiced eye of a professional. Because under no circumstances should the blonde get a yellow tinge.
However, if you absolutely want to bleach your hair yourself at home, you should definitely get a second person to help you and help you to bleach really fine and thin strands. In any case, you should then use a silver shampoo when washing out to achieve a cooler effect.
But even without coloring and bleaching, you can give your hair a little styling update.
