Tracey Cunningham’s Spring/Summer 2015 Haircolor Trends

Daylight Saving Time begins this weekend which means spring is just around the corner. With that comes the desire to spring clean and “lighten” our diets, our unwanted baggage and now, our haircolor. Looking ahead to Spring/Summer 2015 haircolor trends, Tracey Cunningham, Redken Celebrity Colorist with a lengthy list of Hollywood starlets, reveals her inside scoop on the blonding trend that we are seeing on A-list stars, blonde and brunette alike. Chat with your colorist about how to incorporate Tracey’s trends into your lifestyle and leave the salon chair looking and feeling like a celebrity, no matter your natural shade!

Spring/Summer 2015 Trend #1: Babylights Blondes
“It is all about going blonde this season, whether or not you consider yourself a natural blonde. A cool blonde like Gwyneth Paltrow, who has a gorgeous all-over color, can easily be elevated to another level by creating babylights, which has been my go-to blonding technique for many years that mimics the sun-kissed tones your hair took on as a child. Redken’s NEW Blonde Idol Base Breakers allow me to experiment with warm blondes like Charlize Theron by enhancing the undertones without taking away from the existing blonde shade.”

 

Spring/Summer 2015 Trend #2: Brightened Brunettes
“So many of my brunette clients believe that blonde highlights are off-limits but it is in fact the opposite; highlights on a brunette create a gorgeous lift! With Jessica Biel who is a darker shade, I created a balayage effect using the Blond Idol High Lift Conditioning Cream on the ends. A wildly popular trend on the opposite end of the spectrum is a rich monochromatic look which is ideal for brunettes like Julia Louis-Dreyfus who want one solid color instead of dual tones. I love Redken’s NEW Chromatics Ultra Rich to get that monochromatic, rich-looking color with great coverage.”

 

Spring/Summer 2015 Trend #3: Rich Red
“Deep, strong reds like Emma Stone are here to stay, both on and off the red carpet, with blondes like Kate Bosworth even making the transition to red! Redken’s NEW Carmin’R shades, featured in Redken Chromatics, Shades EQ Cream and Color Fusion, give me the versatility to customize red hues for all skintones and create everything from a rich cool ruby to a vibrant copper.”

 

No matter your natural shade, leave the salon chair looking and feeling like a celebrity by asking your colorist about Tracey’s above trend tips. To continue to protect your haircolor after your service, Tracey recommends using Redken Color Extend Magnetics Sulfate-Free Haircare or Blonde Idol Haircare to seal in colour and deliver maximum vibrancy and shine.

The new Blonde Idol Professional Haircolor Collection is one of the most consistent and easy to apply color formulas I have ever worked with.

Oscars hair shines despite rain: styling tips and step-by-steps from Pureology

Last night’s rain on the red carpet of the 87th Academy Awards was neither invited nor avoidable, but that did not stop Hollywood’s favorite starlets from showcasing a wide array of looks that kept us on our toes. Award wins and gowns aside, the hair alone was enough to get viewers talking with looks ranging from dreadlocks to unexpected undercuts.

Below, Pureology Artists Sandra Joseph and Ruth Roche share their tips for recreating our favorite looks using Pureology. Pureology International Artistic Director Wendy Bélanger also shares tips on how to keep frizz at bay, even when unexpected downpours hit!

 

 

  • Get the look: Scarlett Johansson (provided by Pure Artist Ruth Roche)Scarlett Johansson
  1. Apply a small amount of Colour Stylist Anti-Split Blow Dry styling cream and using a round brush, blowdry top of hair smooth.
  2. Backcomb the roots to create a 1″ high cushion. Apply a pea-sized amount of Colour Stylist Cuticle Polisher shine serum to palms and style hair away from the face using your fingers. Finish with Colour Stylist Supreme Control high hold hair spray for colour-treated hair.
    1. If the hair is not undercut, take a horseshoe parting at the top and using vertical sections, lightly backcomb sections throughout the sides and back. Brush sides back, using tension to keep the hair very close to the head. Create a classic twist from the nape to the crown, and secure with bobby pins.
    2. On the top, twist and tuck the ends underneath at the back of the crown and secure with a bobby pin. Spray with Colour Stylist Strengthening Control zero dulling hairspray for added hold. Apply a small amount of Colour Stylist Cuticle Polisher shine serum into palms and smooth over sides and back to create a high shine.

 

  • Get the look: Gwyneth Paltrow (provided by Pure Artist Ruth Roche)Gwyneth Paltrow
  1. Blow dry hair smooth with Pureology Highlight Stylist Gold Definer contour shine-gel.
  2. Take ½” horizontal sections and starting in the nape, use a flat iron through each section to create maximum shine.
  3. Create a deep side part, and a large circular section at the crown. Clip circular section out of the way and smooth front and both sides around and back. Secure under the circle in the nape.
  4. Lightly backcomb the roots in the crown section and smooth the surface with a natural bristle brush.
  5. To finish, apply a small amount of Colour Stylist Cuticle Polisher shine serum to palms and smooth the surface.
  6. Finish with Colour Stylist Strengthening Control zero dulling hairspray for a lasting, flexible hold.

 

Margot Robbie

  • Get the look: Margot Robbie (provided by Pure Artist Sandra Joseph)
    1. Begin with a few mists of Pureology Colour Fanatic on damp hair to prime hair, protect colour and fight frizz.
    2. Apply a quarter-size amount of Colour Stylist Nourishing Nectar sculpting gel and blowdry with a large flat brush, wrapping hair around the head to create shape.
    3. When the hair is almost dry, add a small amount of Colour Stylist Anti Breakage Twist shine texturizer and layer throughout. Finish blowdrying with a large round brush to smooth cuticle and add extra bend.
    4. Create a right side part, tuck hair behind the ear and finish with Colour Stylist Density Definer medium hold crème wax to add separation and hold hair in place all evening.

 

 

  • Tips to keep the frizz and humidity away (provided by Pureology International Artistic Director Wendy Bélanger)
    1. Using a round brush, combine a dime-sized dollop of Pureology Super Smooth Relaxing Serum and a dime-sized dollop of Colour Stylist Lustrous Volumizer prior to blowdrying. The Super Smooth Relaxing Serum features a humidity-resistant technology that retains the moisture from your conditioner while repelling the humidity from the outside that would otherwise cause your blowout to collapse or create frizz. The Colour Stylist Lustrous Volumizer provides that added volume, hold and support needed for shape while simultaneously protecting hair from color damage or fading.

Tracey Cunningham’s Spring/Summer 2013 Haircolor Trends

Tracey Cunningham’s Spring/Summer 2013 Haircolor Trends

As the weather heats up, so are the hair trends for Spring/Summer 2013. Tracey Cunningham, Redken Creative Consultant for Color shares the hottest haircolor trends for the hottest months of the year, and explains how you can rock the same look as her blonde, brunette, and redhead Hollywood clients.

“I predict the spring/summer of 2013 will mark the return of the natural look. Women will begin to move away from the high-maintenance colors of 2012 and into less-fussy, organic-looking locks.” shared Tracey. “With Redken’s NEW Chromatics Beyond Cover, clients will be assured that they are receiving 100% gray coverage, while maintaining that coveted natural look.”

Summer is the perfect time to experiment with natural colors and looks, as people tend to tone down their overall look as the weather begins to warm. We can expect a shift away from the extreme colors and extreme ombré. Ombré will remain a trend, as it is a variation of brunette and easy to maintain, but expect a more toned down, natural looking ombré.  Ombre has become such a trend, Tracey jokes, “As far as I’m concerned there are 4 hair colors: Brunette, Red, Blonde and Ombré,” says Tracey Cunningham, Redken Creative Consultant for Color

Aside from the omnipresent ombré, Tracey is forecasting brunettes, redheads, and blondes to continue making trendy choices with their color.

Spring/Summer 2013 Trend #1: “Brunettes will continue to rock the ombré trend into 2013. Think Jessica Biel and her ‘rose gold’ tips or Lily Aldridge’s natural sun-kissed ombré. The ombré is a look for all seasons, and we will be seeing a gradual, natural effect on brunettes in the spring/summer season.”

– Tracey Cunningham

Spring/Summer 2013 Trend #2: “Redheads will welcome the spring and summer months with more intense, dark vibrant reds. I continue to get requests for Bryce Dallas Howard’s red, as this color creates a look which fits with all skin tones. A darker red such as Bryce’s is perfect for women with lighter skin tones, who are looking to change up their look.”

– Tracey Cunningham

Spring/Summer 2013 Trend #3: “Blondes will continue to follow Gwyneth Paltrow’s lead by requesting a honey-golden hue. Spring and summer is the prime time to shake up your blonde by adding some soft golden shades, that will really make your look pop.”

– Tracey Cunningham


 

“To make these Spring/Summer hair color trends a reality, Redken is launching the new Chromatics Beyond Cover age defying permanent color. Similar to Redken’s Chromatics Prismatic Permanent Haircolor, Chromatics Beyond Cover provides zero ammonia and 2X more Fortified[1] hair but Beyond Cover adds the benefit of promising 2X Smoother[2] hair as well,” states Cunningham. “What makes Beyond Cover so appealing to many of my celebrity clients is that it guarantees 100% gray coverage!”

Clients looking for these celebrity looks should ask their colorist about Chromatics Beyond Cover.
