Harriet Franks, head colourist from Blue Tit, Peckham, UK, has analysed catwalk trends to predict what colours will be the biggest hits going into spring 2018. Here’s her third prediction – Think Ink! (Click HERE to read about Gritty Pink and HERE to read about Bronze Age.)
This season, luminous colour is giving way to a far moodier vibe. Instead of highlighters, think fountain pens – deep, inky hues of petrol blue, ink and forest green. The Fendi models wore these colours for the Spring-Summer 2018 show, with this dark colour applied just to the front section, creating what beauty editors have labelled “petrol bangs”. Once again, having darker colours so fashionable in spring-summer shows is unusual but it is welcome and inspiring. Blue Tit’s latest colouring technique, Prisma, uses haphazard colour placement for a vivid, deconstructed end result – ideal for a daring client (see photo below). For clients who are nervous about trying this shade, use extensions so that they can fall in love, without commitment!
