Hair Trend: Dark Highlights (With Aleks Abadia)

All-over dark hair colour can look solid and dull, but breaking it up with some subtle tonal highlights softly brightens and adds gorgeous dimension. This season is all about glamming up the natural look with some chocolate or dark caramel highlights, to make your face and neckline glow amongst the darker roots. The best part? It’s easy to maintain!

Aleks Abadia (pictured), Esstudio Galleria’s co-founder and Hair Director, predicts that this trend is the next big trend in colour for 2015. Aleks says, “I don’t think balayage will ever die out… It’s perfect for those wanting stylish hair without requiring high maintenance – it’s such minimal
upkeep! The highlights look most natural when they start mid-shaft and frame the face. Lily Aldridge is a perfect example of this look.

“Naturally black or brown haired clients will likely have warmer, earthy undertones in their skin like orange, brown, gold or orange-based red.
Therefore, this dark highlights look is best suited to those with warmer skin tones. It’s a great way to make dark locks look more fabulous! However, your stylist can select lighter or darker shades of the hue to achieve the best result for your skin tone,” said Aleks.

How to get the Dark Highlights look:

  • Colour Treatment: Free lights mid-lengths to ends for a face framing effect, all over gloss injected with an colour-tone of colour to suit your skin.
  • Maintenance: Very low maintenance.
  • Cost: Only requires 4 visit a year to your salon, maybe gloss and a toner in-between, expect to pay between $150 – $300
  • Bookings: – or 02 9698 1135
