One of the big hair colour trends featured in Goldwell’s new Traditional Rebels collection is the “bandeau technique,” which consists of breaking up monochromatic colour with bands of deeply saturated, heavy pigmented shades in warm and cool neutrals. It’s perfect for enhancing the shape or texture of a haircut and adding playful touches to your colour service.
Here’s the Creative Color Zoom Team’s break down of how to create this trend from the 2015 Color Zoom Hairstylist Guide:
“The “Bandeau Technique” is characterized by a bandeau-shaped section, which consist of curves and points, which contour the head. The curve shows the strength of the cut and the fastening points emphasize the texture and styling. Inside the bandeau, solid block coloring and mirrored foils provide interesting contrasts and a unique look for every style. The “Bandeau Technique” uses a mirroring method of foiling to allow a unique application that shows true color movement, either with a solid back-to-back block color to make a bold statement, or with background in between each foil to show a delicate stitch of color.”

This style is a solid band on band that flips the shade through the interior. The light side of a Paprika copper background disrupted with the lightest of Midnight and light Berry. The clash of tones together with their saturation creates beautiful shades with shine towards the light Paprika.
