Blond Shadow Sweep – 2024 Trends For Any Hair Type And Length
And sweeping, and shading are old stories as partial (de) coloring techniques to beautify our manes. There is, however, a promising trend somewhere in the middle and that many ladies do not know. This is indeed the shaded shading blonde, in other words the “sinking”, which is on the rise in 2024. More pronounced than the classic sweep and more discreet than the shaded, the good news is that it can be adapted to any type, cut, length and hair color to make it work!
In the present article, we will pay particular attention to the shaded shading blond and its many stylistic interpretations. Hopefully nobody will be disappointed after reviewing the 30 proposals to follow!
For anglophones, the “sombré” is a soft-boxed word “soft” and “shaded” that can be translated as a soft, subtle shadow. Better yet, it is a shady sober or a “sober” if we want to continue the trend and “assemble” the two words.
Jokes aside, it’s a partial staining technique (or discolouration) that combines, in our opinion, the best aspects of sweeping and shading. In order to understand it better, we must first define its components.
The shaded technique is based on the gradual fading of the hair to form a gradient of shades close, however distinct. Most often, there are 3 distinctly distinguishable shades with or without intermediate shades.
The sweeping, on the other hand, takes place rather by the vertical and takes advantage of the length of the individual locks. Unlike the classic wicks, the thinned accents are quite thin, close to the natural color of the hair and especially scattered throughout the hair.
As a result, the hair looks very natural and their maintenance is easy as the regrowth is not noted too quickly. The main risk with scanning is that if the colorist is not experienced enough, the customer gets either flashy locks or barely visible wicks.
These variants are not acceptable, because in hair coloring, just as in life in general, we must always seek balance. The shaded shading is therefore the right formula because it incorporates the distinguished effect of the shaded and the smoothness of the scan.
The shaded shades in blond work very well and for natural blondes, and for brunettes, and for redheads. Unlike the classic sweep, which opts for the locks in 1 or 2 shades lighter than the natural color, the sinking is more audacious.
One can choose from several blonde shades that range from silver to dark blonde, according to one’s own personal preferences. In the best case, it is put on cool tones, or on warm reflections, but not on both at the same time.
For example, a smooth gradation in 3 of the blond shades such as gold, amber, honey and caramel, which can go as far as light brown, is a good complement for all underwired ladies. hot skin.
If, on the other hand, your sou-ton is rather fresh, you can calmly guide you towards the corresponding nuances. The shaded shades in ash blonde and all the colors inspired platinum and silver are very good choices.
The other important benefit of shading blonde shading is that wavy hair is not a must to succeed. It is perfectly capable of revealing its aesthetics even if the hair is smooth, especially when the cut is degraded.
In fact, the degraded cut is the perfect option for shading in blond to reveal its 100% aesthetic. No matter the length of your hair and the type of hair, the level cut completes the sinking and vice versa.
The same goes for tapered tips and any hair styling technique that adds structure. The main goal is to add more volume at the top and create relaxed spikes that fall freely down.
When a celebrity adopts the shaded blond sweep the result exceeds all expectations. And when the star in question is also a fashion icon like Sarah Jessica Parker, we know we are on the right track with her choice of hair color.
In addition, it turns out that even ladies with curly hair can enjoy the beauty of the sinking! Logically, the effect is less pronounced, however it works just as well to refresh a little hair in solid color.
However, it is necessary to have a long length so that the scan way shaded blonde is successful. Otherwise, it is better to opt for the locks that result in a breath of fresh air for ladies with curly hair, often objectively limited in their choice of cut and color.
Being on the subject of hair length and specific cut, we can not fail to mention the bob, as well as its long version, also known as lob, become almost iconic in recent years.
So we continue with some shaded sweeping trends for the ladies who also want to adopt the bob. Finally, we will offer some alternative proposals for ladies with short hair who want to refresh their appearance.
As usual, we start by defining the terms we are talking about, namely: bob and lob. The first designates a relatively short square cut with or without bangs and hair that end in the lower jaw.
In the case of the long bob, as its name suggests, it is a longer length. Usually, the hair exceeds the level of the lower jaw and can reach the shoulders or even exceed them.
Nowadays, the classic bob cut has undergone many metamorphoses and is therefore unrecognizable. Most often, she has no bangs and is more or less degraded. Anyway, it’s a good haircut to marry with the shaded blond sweep.
Finally, as promised above, we have some good trends of “sinking” for ladies with short haircuts. Contrary to popular belief, you do not necessarily have back hair to choose the shaded blonde scan.
Provided that your colorist is quite experienced and you are very daring, progressive discoloration can be achieved even on a very short dipping square, even on a boyish cut such as the famous “pixie cut”!
The proof of this is the collage of photos above illustrating not one, but 3 simply beautiful variants of the shaded blonde scan on short cut hair. Not bad, girls, not bad at all!
Speaking of daring experiments, aside from the original trends on the shaded blond sweeping presented above, we would like to offer you some proposals exploring the bolder colors.
Advantageously, the shaded blond sweep can be harmoniously associated with mahogany and raspberry red, with mauve and pink locks, or even with gray hair become super popular lately.
