Ribbon Lights Hair Hacks with Jake Nugent

The Ribbon Lights is going to be a beautiful, layered colour trend we’ll no doubt see more of in 2024. It creates a natural-looking blend that weaves luminosity throughout your locks.

Think of Ribbon Lights as being a progression of the tiramisu trend from spring 2023 that had three different shades of brown: a warm tan shade with a yellow undertone, a deep warm brown, and a light brown with gold to reflect. The Ribbon Lights is a technique designed to create a natural-looking blend that weaves luminosity throughout your locks.

Get the Look

Jake Nugent, OSMO Ambassador explains further: “Colour placement is key with this look, so you’ll be getting depth and texture to the finished look. It’ll work great with a baby balayage technique as it’s less maintenance and you can build the look with more shades too. With this look, I’d say less is more. It’s important to create blonde and golden ribbons throughout the hair. Make sure you keep enough dark in the hair for that contrast effect.”

Hero Product

Aftercare is key with this look as you want it shimmer and shine – So, weekly deep moisturising treatments are key. The OSMO Deep Moisture Intensive Repair Mask has an infusion of Jojoba to breathe life and lustre into hair that has undergone a chemical treatment. This leaves it silky, smooth and more manageable.
