Introducing Eclipse - the latest Colour innovation from the team at Jo Hansford
Jo Hansford MBE, one of the world’s leading premium hair colour specialists, has unveiled the latest hair colour trend hitting catwalks and beyond for Spring/Summer 2014. Eclipse, named after the single flash of colour used to frame the face, will brighten all hair shades for the warmer months and will work perfectly with summer wardrobes.
Spotted on runways across London and New York Fashion Weeks, Eclipse can be adapted to give the best match for skin tone, complimenting golden tans and brighter make up palettes. Blend tones are used to work in harmony with the individual’s base colour, for example:
Cool brunette - Toffee Eclipse
Warm brunette - Cognac Eclipse
Blonde - Vanilla/Ice White
Copper – Apricot Blonde
The look uses a bold blaze of colour around the face in a lighter shade which is created by colouring thin slices of hair in foil packets and tightly packing them together, resulting in one thick colour flash. The foils are positioned to compliment up or down styles and hair worn in a natural parting.
The Eclipse Colour Technique oozes versatility and subsequently can be worn by any generation. For a soft yet stylish look, the CLASSIC ECLIPSE is the incarnation of style. The Eclipse section is coloured using blend tones that work in harmony with the existing hair colour, leaving a soft hue and a brightening flash of light around the face to enhance and compliment features.
Generation ‘Y’ can wear the ACID ECLIPSE, a bold look achieved by bleaching the Eclipse section to a clean even blonde, and then toning with a ‘crazy colour’ in the desired shade – whether this is pink, blue or violet, for a playful younger finish.
For the mature hair, the CHARCOAL ECLIPSE technique serves in making grey hair chic and stylish. Eclipse section is coloured with Charcoal tones to prevent a brassy unflattering fade.
Jaclyn Smith, Colour Director at the Jo Hansford Salon in the heart of Mayfair, who is the go to for celebrities including Erin O Connor, Zara Martin and Georgia Jagger says ‘Eclipse is a chic yet bold technique for all ages. It gives hair a fun, summer vibe, with a multi-tonal effect to compliment natural tones and enhance facial features. A-list celebrities such as Salma Hayek, Heather Graham and Sarah Jessica Parker are already rocking the look with success’.
The Eclipse technique is available from Jo Hansford salon priced from £155. As with any colour style, ensuring your hair stays healthy and nourished is essential and investing in key colour products like the Jo Hansford Intensive Masque (RRP £27,00, 150ml) or Illuminoil (RRP £29,00, 50ml) can help.
