"Hair Contouring": The New Hair trend

Just as we are finally getting into grips with face contouring, a new trend hits us in the head (literally): Hair Contouring. If you are like me, and still has trouble to master the art that is contouring, this new trend may be just perfect for you. Forget drawing lines on your face in the attempt to have well-defined cheekbones like Kim K, hair contouring proves to be a much easier concept to get on board, mostly because you are simply paying someone else to do the job. 

But what is hair contouring, you may ask. The idea is to freehand colour hair giving it a less stripy, more natural look to highlights. Despite being similar to its cousins ombré, bronde, and balayage, hair contouring is meant to better frame your face by highlighting parts like your cheekbones and creating the impression of depth and density. "Highlighting and shading certain parts of the hair can create the illusion of a different face shape, depending on what you want to accentuate", explains Nick Penna (a colourist and the owner of SalonCapri in Boston) via Allure"Just like the makeup technique, light shades are for highlighting and darker shades are for creating a shadow effect”, Nick also explains.

Instagram is the perfect place for some inspiration for you and your hairdresser, simply search #haircontouring to "oohh and aahh" over some amazing hair colours.




And my own take on this trend:


Call it ombré, bronde, balayage or hair contouring; there is no better time to experience with a bit of colour, whatever the trend may be named. Unlike some weird hair trends from last season (remember the granny hair?), hair contouring is very much real and here to stay. What do you think, yay or nay? Let me know below beauties! 

Hair contouring, face contouring, body contouring, eye contouring, what is next?
Thank you for reading and have a nice week ahead!

  7. I love this look! It's very similar to the new 'Bronde' which is a mixture between blonde and brown shades. All these new hair trends, I can barely keep up!

  15. Never heard of this concept. To be honest, I think giving it a new name/label is just another way to revamp the ombre trend and invoke interest again, pretty much the same as 'strobing' (it's just highlighting, come on now guys). Your hair is lovely though!xx

  24. Geralmente as pessoas exageram neste tipo de tendências e o resultado é um cabelo claramente artificial. Acho que conseguiste um resultado bonito, mas sem exageros :D
