curlbox exclusive: kiyah wright’s expert tips

Alas, summer’s come to close. Bring on the lush looks of fall. Inside your box, you’ll find some treats from Clairol to spruce up your hair color this season. To help you get started, we asked Kiyah Wright, celebrity hairstylist and Clairol professional colorist, for the top tips to coloring natural hair. She dished a few trends, too. Check it out. 

Let’s talk about the most coveted color techniques for fall.

Kiyah Wright: Ombre (characterized by dark tresses fading into lighter tips), Balayage (the art of hair painting) and veiling are hot color techniques for fall.

What’s veiling?

Kiyah: Let’s say you want to bring down your blonde that you’ve been wearing for spring and summer. You can use a veiling technique to take that blonde to a brown and still keep some of the blonde highlights. It’s a little darker up top and lighter underneath. It helps create these hidden panels of highlighted colors. You’ll have darkness but your hair will still have some dimension.

Which color is the top pick of the season? Read More…
