The Trend

‘Let It Bloom’ is… an essay in modern romance, all beautiful florals and soft vintagey nostalgia. An ethereal, shimmery, intensely pure, layered, super-duper-luxe, light-as-air kind of situation. Vintage-y prints and hothouse blooms, where softly layered sheer meets shimmery fabrics, all tell of endless summer days and the hair is slicked back to embrace a mood of cool romance in free-to-dream 70s shades.

Let It Bloom Catwalk Look: Masha

Using a blend of gold and dusted rose tones from IGORA ROYAL, Global Schwarzkopf Professional Colour Ambassador Lesley Jennison crafts a magically reflective look with a vintage feel thanks to the #Shimmering application technique. Schwarzkopf Professional Editorial Ambassador, Tyler Johnston, goes for a modern mushroom cut that’s bolstered with strength thanks to a transformative FIBRE CLINIX Tribond service.

“This is such a beautiful look – giving you a bronze and golden blonde with almost translucent shades, #Shimmering with a life of their own” says Lesley Jennison.

Let It Bloom Salon Look: Lauren

Glossy brunette tones are kissed with hand-painted blonde accents as Global BLONDME Ambassador Jack Howard weaves his signature balayage techniques through long hair. Ambassador Joana Neves keeps the length before styling free-flowing waves that are finished with Oil Ultime Mediterranean Finishing Oil for radiantly smooth, glowing hair.

Salon Look: Lauren

“The new, deep BLONDME Toners allowed me to create a mix of glazes using a hybrid technique for a #Shimmering finish”  Jack Howard comments.


Key Colour Technique: #Shimmering

This technique sees magical glossiness and rich depths of colour hand-applied onto hair to create shimmer and shine. First, the hair is speckled with little touches of light colour and rich tones of gold. The finishing trick glosses and glazes for a subtly dappled, super-luxe shimmer that catches the light.
