2018's Dimensional Blonde Hair Colour Trend
The Dimensional Blonde
High contrast. Natural Blacks. Warm browns. Buttery blondes. Layered in chunks.
Hair colour trends have certainly moved on from the 90s' chunky rectangular highlights to a more sunkissed, low maintenance balayage. But the block colours have come back twirling with its own millennial spin - sophistication, sophistication, sophistication! 2018 has ushered in a new era with the dimensional balayage giving us warm browns; a deep natural black underlayer; and a buttery blonde face-framing money piece. What makes this look so special is the non-blended mix of contrasting shades perfectly layered and aligned against one another. It creates a hair look that is completely unique to each individual which can last all year without feeling any pressure to tone it down for the winter or amp it up in summer months.
What We Love
The signature touch elevating it's expensive appeal is the perfectly labelled 'money piece' - chunky highlighted strands accentuating your natural part right on the hairline. Think Cindy Crawford circa 1990s. Layered in to frame your face, and it becomes the perfect way to add contouring not only to your makeup routine, but to your new dime-a-dozen hairstyle.
To style this colour, 2018 has ditched the big bouncy blow dries with most opting for the more casual mermaid waves and others embracing the dropped curl. Either way both exude the iconic, lived-in, 'I woke up like this' vibe.
