Thunder-and-lightning silver is the latest in hair colouring trends
"Thunder and Lightning” isn’t just a summer anthem we were all belting out at the club a few months ago. It’s now a very real hair dye trend that’s as catchy as its musical counterpart. The thunder-and-lightning trend combines different hair colour techniques to achieve a stormy look that’s wowing 2018! Here’s a little bit more about it.
What it is
This look is created by combining a bright yellow with a metallic-silver colour in a manner that resembles a storm brewing over the skyline. While the basic shades will ultimately remain the same, the combination in which they’re used throughout the hair differs depending on what you’re into.
How to achieve it
You’ll need to start with a platinum blonde base before applying the yellow and metallic shades. This will help enhance the colours used later on. The necessary colours are then applied, making sure the two or more shades do not blend, but saturate strands well.
Maintain the look
The reality is that this temperamental look is super-high maintenance and only lasts about 4 to 6 weeks. There are ways to prolong its life, however. Use cooler water when shampooing and conditioning, and only apply products specifically created for coloured hair. We recommend professional-standard Redken Color Extend Magnetics Sulfate-Free Shampoo with anti-fade formula to maintain shine and smoothness.
