Exactly when you thought there was truly nothing left to contour, people have made sense of how to contour hair.
Contouring and highlighting, terms most generally utilized when discussing makeup, are the of-the-moment procedures used to upgrade your components. Contingent upon your face shape or body sort, you can utilize contouring to chisel territories that need definition and highlighting to complement features you’d like to be the core interest.
Those same feature complimenting procedures can now be connected when coloring your hair, as per Boston-based hair colorist Nick Penna in an interview with Allure.
“Hair contouring uses freehand coloring and highlighting to improve face shapes. Highlighting and shading certain parts of the hair can make the dream of a different face shape, contingent upon what you need to complement. Much the same as the cosmetics technique, light shades are for highlighting and darker shades are for making a shadow impact.”
Penna told Allure that Sarah Jessica Parker’s present style is an extraordinary illustration of hair contouring. The highlighted pieces on the sides of her face improve this area to make her narrow face show up a bit more extensive, and the darker pieces on top and in the section underneath soften the length of her face.
Despite the fact that the expression “hair contouring” may be new, the thought behind it is essentially balayage (a freehand highlighting procedure that obliges you to paint on the color) done deliberately to compliment every individual’s components as opposed to done arbitrarily all through the hair.
So there you have it. May 2015 forever go down as the year of the contour.
