The "Moka-lights" are a new and innovative coloring-technique combining last years trend of "hair-painting", todays trend of the "Nude-tral" (neutral) hair-colors with the safety of a classic high-light "in foil" technique.
With blonde hair-colors there has always been a fine line between a "cheap"- and a "rich"-looking blonde, This duality is not only what attracts me as a colorist but it's also what keeps me pushing for new solutions to very old problems. (Read as : my war on the "brassy" and finding cures for the "yellow fever" associated with many hair-dyes).
The big problem with the trend of hair-painting is that it has a high risk for mistakes and/or sloppy outcomes. And though my life can be messy at times, I prefer my highlights on fleek. The problem with a classic highlight in foil technique is that the highlight is very visible (zebra-stripy), and usually doesn't lighten more then 50% of the hairs. And when going from very dark to very light there is often an unwanted warmth in the colour.
All these problems can luckily be tackled by using a combination of both techniques. So by using a very thick and wide highlight with a very slim piece of hairs that are left-out and hair-painting only the top of your root section, you can create a look that seems like you did a million fine highlights. By then counter-colouring all the warmth, a very lively colour will be achieved. I love that "darker roots with lighter ends"-feeling without the, let's face it, has been "Ombre"-style.
This Application is ideal for everyone who wants to go lighter but still likes to keep it soft and natural looking. Or for everyone who wants to gradually go lighter without those not-so-classy in-between hair-colours.
The darker roots also give the illusion of more voluminous hair, and it makes sure you don't have to come in every six weeks for a touch up. Which is always a plus.
Because at COSTA DEL we believe in luxurious hair for everyone, I have decided to share a detailed how-to for all my professional readers including sharing my exact formulas. Sharing, after all, is caring. Is it not?
Peace, Love and Sunshine for all
