When Karthik, a 26-year-old aspiring model walked into the salon, he wanted to get an iconic makeover that would suit his professional and personal needs.
The style experts analysed his hair texture and face shape. To compliment his oval face, they opted to give him a taper fade style that would make his hair look more voluminous.
A taper fade hair cut is a trending style where the hair on the crown area is maintained longer and set in place. The fade begins from the end of the long hair and gradually blends with the skin. It is a trendy style with a modern twist. This cut is very easy to maintain and can be styled by oneself within seconds. The style complemented Karthik’s broad forehead and the fades on the side made his face appear slimmer.
To accentuate the look, the stylist chose to colour his hair in subtle hues, which suited his dusky skin tone. The stylist opted to go for a dark blonde with soft blonde highlights. Adding in soft blonde highlights on a dark blonde base breaks it up, giving dimension and brightness. This is the ideal hair colour for medium and dark skin tones.
The technique used to apply the hair colour is global with slicing highlights technique. This irregular highlighting technique is ideal for those who want to have a soft yet adventurous look. Colour slicing is the ideal solution if you want to achieve an intense, bold color effect.
After the makeover, the stylist recommended two hair styles for Karthik. A part side style compliment broad foreheads where the hair from one side is swept to the other side. This hair style is particularly great for people who face the baldness issue — they can use it to conceal their baldness on the crown area.
The second style is a messy brush back hair style, wherein the front hair is swept backwards and the hair is made to look little messy on the crown area. This is very wearable and can be styled in just under a second.
