2020 has already blessed us with an array of beauty trends. The latest to hit the scene? Twilight hair. Put the vampire jokes to rest—the name has nothing to do with the undead. In actuality, it’s a hair color trend. And if you’re a brunette bombshell, you’re in luck, as this trend is all about you! Want to learn more about twilight hair, what exactly it entails, and how to get it? Below, we’re sharing everything you need to know so you can jump on the twilighting hair color trend stat.
Sorry to disappoint, but as we mentioned, twilight hair doesn’t have anything to do with fangs and blood lust. Twilighting is a highlighting technique designed for those with brown hair. Like many of our favorite hair highlighting techniques, it’s a low-maintenance way to add depth, movement, and luminance to your mane. The technique involves a combination of balayage and babylights, focusing the former on the lengths and ends while the latter are placed around the hairline. The result? A beautiful, warm-toned brunette hair color with some golden specks throughout. Pretty, right? We’d say it’s as dazzling as a vampire sparkling in the sunlight.
Want to add a twist to your brunette mane? If you want to give twilight hair a try, your best bet will be to head to the salon. Your colorist will know exactly where to place your golden highlights, something that's especially key since twilighting is a combination of two different highlighting techniques. Trust us; this one is best left to the pros! Be sure to bring plenty of inspo pictures (we suggest pinning them to a dedicated Pinterest board) to ensure your dream mane becomes a reality.
Of course, we understand if you just can’t help yourself when it comes to attempting new hair colors at home. Since this highlighting technique requires quite a bit of finesse, we recommend turning to a temporary hair color spray if you wish to DIY it. This way, any mishaps can be washed away in just one shampoo—no hair horror stories here! Pick up the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary 1-Day Hair Color Spray in Gold to bring your short-term twilight hair to life, then head over to our article, How to Get Easy Highlights At Home with a Hair Color Spray, for a step-by-step tutorial.
Once you have twilight hair, we have a feeling you won’t want to part with it. And we fully support your decision to commit to your ‘do. To show your commitment and keep your strands looking their best, follow the hair care tips below.
First up, swap your go-to shampoo, conditioner, and hair treatment for a hair care system that’s specifically formulated for color-treated hair. Our rec? The L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Protecting Shampoo, L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Protecting Conditioner, and L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Repair and Protect Balm.
Smooth, shiny hair is healthy hair, and healthy hair looks good. Need we say more? Keep your strands frizz-free and radiant with the help of the L’Oréal Paris Elvive 8 Second Wonder Water Lamellar Hair Treatment. This eight-second wonder will leave your strands looking silkier, shinier, and healthier.
Sure, twilight hair is low-maintenance, but that doesn’t mean it requires no maintenance at all. As your roots start to grow out, you trendy ‘do won’t look so hot. Lucky for you, touch-ups don’t have to be on a regular schedule, and can instead be put off for 12 to 16 weeks.
