we have had a great variety of innovations in hairstyles, one of them is hair frosting, a unique technique that was widely used this year and possibly will be in the future.
I’m sure you’ve seen this style on many celebrities these days, as it quickly became a trend.
Do you want to know what hair frosting is and what differentiates it from similar techniques? Then you’re in the right post. Here we will show you everything you need to know about this hairstyle.
What is hair frosting?
Hair frosting is a novel technique whereby cool colors give nuances and contrasts to the hair; it is very similar, for example, to other methods such as balayage highlights. Unlike balayage, frosting focuses on cool colors, while highlighting focuses on warm colors.
Generally, hair frosting is used to create facets of an excellent blonde color over light brown or a much darker blonde than the one to be applied. In a way, it is reminiscent of the first winter snow that tints the streets’ dark background.
Many celebrities have opted to apply frosting to their hair because, in addition to giving a much more contrasting look, it provides the sensation of more volume, making it more sought after.
Some of the most well-known celebrities who recently wore this hairstyle are Halle Berry, Hailey Bieber, Sofia Richie, and Beyoncé.
What does the hair frosting process consist of?
This technique is aesthetically pleasing and makes women’s hair healthier, giving more strength to weak and brittle hair.
Hair frosting consists of changing the color of certain strands without touching other parts of the hair, which will keep its original color.
There are two ways to do this: one is by placing a plastic cap over the scalp, passing some strands through the holes, and dyeing them a blonde color, while the other method is more straightforward and consists of separating strands manually, placing them on aluminum squares and preventing them from touching the dark hair that is not going to be dyed.
During the hair frosting process, hair agents with ceramides and moisturizing ingredients are usually applied, improving the hair’s health and giving it a much fresher, sleeker, and softer look.
The frosting procedure takes about an hour to finish, and during it, the hair will be washed, and completely harmless glazes will be applied since they have no ammonia additives, which are precisely the ones that end up ruining the health of the hair.
After frosting, the hair should be styled in a certain way so that it looks much more luxurious and that the contrasts between the primary background color and the newly applied blonde can be appreciated.
The shiny, healthy look of the hair will last approximately three to four weeks. And although it has to be done constantly to maintain the beauty of the hair, it is a very trendy technique and one that you should try if you want to try something new.
Although it is a trend that can pass quickly, we cannot deny that it has a very marked style, and in my opinion, it looks excellent.
