What is the Scandi Hairline Trend?
For those who don’t know, the Scandi Hairline Trend is a colour technique that works to brighten the edge of the hairline around the face. Through lightening the baby hairs, as opposed to two full front sections, the technique differs from a money piece. Creating a natural-looking hairline, Scandi Hairlines help frame the face to give clients a brighter glow. Remember though, this trend isn’t just for blondes – the Scandi Hairline can work on any hair colour.
Choosing the right shade is crucial. Ensure you select a colour that is just one or two shades lighter than the rest of the hair. Also go for a colour that suits the natural base, this will ensure the final look is low-maintenance for the client.
As hair health is always the priority, it’s important to not over colour the baby hairs – these are fragile and easily prone to breakage, so should only be coloured a few times a year. Ensure clients are aware of the at-home maintenance that will be required to keep the colour looking its best in between appointments – this is a good opportunity to retail silver/purple shampoos and conditioners.
Finally, be cautious when you are bleaching close to the skin. I believe it’s always worth using a protective barrier between your clients hair and skin for further protection.
