Autumn Brights reflects the trend for heavy placement which has been ticking away for some time. Think chunky, block highlights and split hair. There has been a real influx in sunflower yellows and neons trending. These always look great whether or not the sun is shining!
Now, as we head into Autumn Pulp Riot Artist Heffy Wheeler says: “The best thing about vivids is pretty much anything goes; for a more subtle look, a lived-in blonde can be easily transformed when toned with the amazing Pulp Riot High Speed Toners. I love the Rose Gold to give it the perfect pop of soft pink, or a full scalp bleach followed by an eye-popping rainbow to really make a statement! Reverse ombre is proving to be popular too for Autumn, with a bright root blending into darker ends. When caring for brights, a sulphate-free shampoo is a must, while a cool water rinse is also essential for ensuring longevity of vivid colours – and this feels great on a hot day!
Top three tips for working with brights in Autumn 2021
1 Learn the rules before you break them. Vivid colouring is so different from commercial colouring so new rules apply. For example, if the base is not light enough or the undertones are too strong, it can affect the end result dramatically. Pulp Riot offer free FaceTime education so it’s a great way to perfect your knowledge before you dive in.
2 You are the artist, when creating brights we truly have creative freedom. Don’t be afraid to express yourself, try something new and experiment; this is when the best things happen!
3 Do your research! There is a world of inspiration out there, the tag #hairtrends22 has a whopping 48 million views on tiktok, showing you the volume on content that is available to us. I always like to find the next best thing and discover new and emerging trends though social media. It’s a great place for inspiration.
