What is Hair Twilighting? Here's Your Complete Guide

Posted by on

Editors Note: When it comes to color, Wella Professionals certainly know their stuff, which is why we love to share their take on this popular hair color trend that’s been making waves in 2021.
There is a lot of talk about sun-kissed locks, but what about moonlit strands? In a break from the beachy look, hair twilighting is trending in 2021. Designed to add warm flashes of light to dark hair, this lust-have technique creates depth and definition. But it’s not just for brunettes; deep brondes and vampy redheads can get a twinkly glow, too.

WHAT IS TWILIGHTING? 

Twilighting sees brunette balayage and babylights combined. Sometimes, they’re applied side by side, while other times the techniques are fused together for freehand, micro-fine highlights. The definitive way to work the trend is through a dark or medium brown base, giving the impression of soft, glowing light hitting strands as the sun disappears beyond the horizon.
 
These hair twilights can be soft and subtle or starker in contrast, depending on how bold you want your brighter ribbons to appear. The goal is to add a scattering of warm tones that make dark hair positively glow, while boosting radiance through the face-framing layers for the dreamiest dimension.
But, as Wella Professionals  said before, this trend isn’t just for brunettes. People who crave red brown or blonde hair can try it too, adding pumpkin spice tones to a hazelnut base or caramel richness to a lighter brown. Twilighted hair reflects warmth in the most flattering way, giving dark-haired people a way to embrace their own style of sun(set)-kissed lengths.
