History of Hairdressing

The art of hairdressing dates back centuries, with evidence of hairstyling practices found in ancient civilizations. Over time, hairdressing evolved and became an integral part of cultures worldwide. From elaborate updos during the Renaissance period to the iconic hairstyles of the 20th century, hairdressing has always reflected cultural, social, and artistic expressions.

Hairstylists have played a pivotal role in shaping trends and inspiring generations. Their artisanry and vision have made hairdressing an art form that stands the test of time.

Pushing Boundaries in Hairdressing: New and Creative Examples

In today’s dynamic world, hairdressing continues to evolve, and it’s not only stylists that are pushing the boundaries of creativity like never before. We are finding that and Gen-Z are leading the way with fun looks that have also been inspiring hairstylists to unleashing their creativity and redefine the art of hairdressing.

Root Pop Is Now a Thing and We Can’t Be Mad About It!

Yes we all know those dreaded ‘hot roots’ were once the bane of a creative hairdresser’s life! However, making a feature of the roots rather than trying to blend them in or hide them has now gone mainstream and the trend is to elevate the roots with a pop of bold color for a real grunge look. Any color goes but think vibrant blues, reds, and yellows.

To maintain this fun look, recommend a root touch up ever 6-12 weeks and offer your clients home care tips to avoid early fading. 


Fire-Inspired Hair

This fiery hair color trend mimics the colors of flames with vibrant shades of red and orange, seamlessly blended together. It’s a dramatic and bold expression of passion and intensity. Creative hairdressers will love the new shades like 77.66 Very Intense Medium Red Blonde and 77.40 Very Intense Medium Copper Blonde by Color Sublime by Revlonissimo™They are both formulated with the C5 molecule that brings a striking brightness.

Going bold is no longer just for the fashionista’s. As a creative hairdresser, you can choose all of the colors you and your clients wish but a tip to really set this look off is to opt for a neutral base to make the brighter colors really pop. Try Color Excel by Revlonissimo™ 6.11 and then experiment with different shades from the Nutri Color™ Filters portfolio. To replicate this look, choose shades 050, 200, 300, 200, and CLEAR in slices and chunky weaves.

Artistry is back! For so long it’s just been about the haircut, but we’re starting to see a return to styling again. Wet look hairstyles  and sleek up-dos are a big trend right now with the focus on the hairline and bringing the sides of the hair up in line with your clients cheekbones to create a sculpted look.
