Splashlights: The Latest Hair Colour Craze?
So I was browsing the internet this morning when I came across this photo, and I couldn’t stop looking at it (sometimes glossy, luminous hair color will do that to you).
In point of fact, it brought to mind the response of the Smith family to THAT performance at the Video Music Awards…
Haha, well, I think it just goes to show that we all have different interests, which, when it comes to the realm of beauty, is definitely something to be celebrated.
I’m not quite sure whether I’ll give splashlights a try, but I really like the concept—the dazzling, white color that looks like a spotlight or the shine of a halo, and the way that it exudes an air of otherworldly coolness.
The look is achieved by first applying bleach in a strip from ear to ear, beginning with the base layers of hair, and then applying a color that is closer to the natural state of the hair to the layers of hair that are above and below the strip of bleach. Splashlights are said to be making a…well, splash during New York Fashion Week, so let’s see how successful they are in New York! Will they become popular as the pastel ombre was in previous years?
I had sensed for some time that it was about time for a shift in my circumstances. My hair had been highlighted and bleached for many years, so it had begun to appear ragged. That is without a doubt the most appropriate term for it.
My roots had become ashy from the bleach, and the absence of toner had made my blonde seem too yellow for my taste.
After looking at some of our favorite celebrity hair colors on one of the iPad Minis provided by the salon, we decided to book an appointment. We began to discuss the possibility of going with an ombré or dip-dye aesthetic.
The most fundamental kind of ombré is a color gradient that goes either from light to dark or from dark to light. Drew my hairstylist described how she planned to incorporate a deeper shade into my hair’s roots and then add brighter tones that progressively became lighter down the length of my hair. We came to the conclusion that my previous highlights were worn out, and that it was high time for darker, but more natural colors; thus, we said farewell to my golden hair!
Drew chose colors from the L’Oréal Ombré Nature Collection. These tones modernize the traditional ombré look by mixing deep brown tones with ombré highlights that are sprinkled throughout.
After having a few cups of tea and a lengthy conversation, it was time to take down the foils and make our way to the magnificent Oasis Area.
Customers may have their hair washed and conditioned in this area; the process entails reclining in a massage chair that is really comfortable and listening to music that is soothing. The relaxing atmosphere created by the softly colored mood lighting and the exquisitely scented products from Shu Uemura that Drew used provided a very delightful experience.

A New Favourite | Kerastase Nutritive Touche Perfection Balm For Dry Ends
It’s been a little over a week since I started using this product, and I can state without hesitation that it is without a doubt one of the greatest hair treatments I have EVER used.
I am aware that this is a daring assertion, but please hear me out….
A luxurious balm for dry ends, Kerastase Nutritive Touche Perfection is formulated with keratin. Royal jelly and rhizome extract both provide a substantial dose of moisture to your hair, leaving it feeling silky smooth afterward.
This thick but lightweight balm is ideal for hair that has been left a bit worse for wear as a result of heat styling or color treatments since it eliminates frizz and conditions over-processed ends.
After applying it to my mid-lengths and ends after blowdrying and topping them up throughout the day (I’m not sure if this is really required but I simply enjoy using it), my hair is immediately softer and smoother. I’ve been using it after blowdrying.
My ends have a tendency to feel a little bit ruffled since I dip-dye them, and this is particularly true when it is quite chilly outdoors. This is the ideal product for my hair at the moment, and I can honestly say that I am fascinated with it. I have even considered how wonderful it would be for my frizzy summer hair (it includes a UV screen that protects the hair as well!)
Even my co-workers from the mysalonlooks.com office have put this miracle to the test, and guess what? They adore it just as much as everyone else does!
Although our hair varies in length and texture, we all get our hair colored, and for the last ten days, we have been using this balm every time we wash our hair.
When my hair doesn’t feel the way I want it to, I have a poor tendency of putting on products. However, I’ve found that applying this balm prevents me from going for sprays and oils throughout the day when my hair isn’t feeling the way I want it to. My go-to haircare routine includes Moroccanoil Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner, a touch of Original Treatment applied to damp hair before blow drying and concluding with Balm Perfection.
