Yes I said it hair contouring inspired by the make up trend. Hair contouring is a custom made colour application that has revolutionised the use of hair colour.
This technique uses a combination of free hand application and highlighting to create different tones and depths around the face to highlight and shadow targeted areas.
Using similar methods like make up contouring using darker tones to create shadows to narrow the face shape whilst lighter tones are used to elongate and lengthen the face shape by reflecting light. This technique is literally designed to suit your facial structure, features and skin tone.
To contour your visage to perfection at your next colour appointment, here's a breakdown of what to ask for according to your face shape:
- The length and width of your face is equal. Characteristics include a shorter forehead and chin and a rounded jawline.
The length, width and jawline are equal in length. Characteristics include wider facial features, sharper jawline and shorter forehead.
- You have a wider forehead and a narrower pointed chin, similar to an inverted triangle.
- The length of your face is approx. more than 1 ½ times longer than wide, with a broad forehead, cheekbones and jaw line. The shape will roughly resemble a rectangle with softer corners.
- our cheekbones are the wider than your forehead and jawline.
