Yes you heard us right! It the new craze & here at Di Milo we’re on it!
Read on as our Creative Director, Jean , explains all…
As we all know, contouring is an outline to change the shape of something.
Well now we can change the shape of our face without having to wear make up…
The illusion (which we can thank Kim Kardashian for shining a light on) set the internet on fire.
Everywhere we looked, from magazines/Facebook/Pinterest/Instagram we’re bombarded with pictures of Kim.
We all rushed out to buy our contouring palettes , highlighting & bronzing products with the goal achieving a slimmer face after she posted her famous BTS snapshot from her glam session . We love the So Sue me palette and will not leave home without it., How did we manage before ??
With ‘Hair Contouring’ we’re now replacing our bronzes for low lights and highlighters for highlights!
I’ve put together the styles which suit particular face shapes below;
Most round faces have really good bone structure. Lighter tones are applied from ear to ear and around the hair line,darker tones are applied to the hair underneath
An oval face is very versatile . It’s the best face shape in so far as any colour will suit, but we can still add depth or light, it’s more of a bespoke colour to you.
You may want to shorten and slim the face by shape by applying darker tones to the root and along the parting blending
lighter pieces from the above the ears to the ends.
Clients with a square face shape often want to soften the lines. In this case we would create multi-tonal pieces of light and dark for all corners of the face from jawline
With heart shape, lighter pieces woven around the jawline and ears so it soften’s your face and lighter tone at the root.
Whatever your face shape I recommend to have your stylist also check your skin tone to confirm whether its cool or warm. Getting the
wrong tone for your skin can drastically change your all over look. The right tone will make your eyes pop and will also make your skin appear healthier. So whether you want to brighten your complexion or balance your bone structure your hair colour can now be your secret weapon!!
