Wait, So Long Island Iced Tea Is Now the Inspiration For the Latest Hair Colour Trend?
You've heard of the drink Long Island Iced Tea, but did you know it's now the inspiration for a new hair colour trend? In the world of beauty, anything is possible, like beverages you enjoy at the beach becoming a hair colour for the upcoming season.
"I love this colour because it gives a bright, reflective vibe to your hair without the damage that comes from adding highlights," said Jeremy Tardo, celebrity colourist and Clairol Colour ambassador.
To achieve it, he explained you should add colour to the pieces framing the face and ends first. "I let that sit for 15 minutes so that it would get slightly lighter than the rest of her hair. Then I went ahead and worked the colour all over the hair for the last 10 minutes." The hair colour is great for brunettes who want to add more dimension to their look while still keeping it natural looking and playful.
Anyone can hop on the Long Island Iced Tea hair bandwagon, but the shade really lends itself to darker hair. "The best candidate for this trend is a brunette who feels like their hair is looking dull or flat in tone," said Tardo. "This colour adds iridescence to the hair, which catches the light beautifully in photos."
Tardo added that if your hair has been previously coloured a darker shade, you may need to undergo a bleaching process to lift that colour before the lighter brown colour can be added. If your hair is naturally dark, you should be able to lighten it using hair colour.
