The “Scandi Hairline” || This Summer’s IT Hair Trend
If you’ve found yourself captivated by the sun-kissed hairline trend that’s been taking over TikTok lately, you’re not alone! This summer, it seems like the trend is everywhere, leaving us curious about what it is, who can rock it, and how to achieve it.
What exactly is the “Scandi Hairline”?
Short for “Scandinavian Hairline,” this trend aims to mimic the lightened hairline and baby hairs that naturally occur during the summer months for many blondes. It involves a coloring technique that adds brightness to the hairline, making it slightly lighter than the rest of the hair, creating a gorgeous sun-kissed effect.
This technique utilizes seamless highlights and freehand painting to achieve an effortlessly radiant glow, enhancing your complexion. If you’ve previously tried traditional highlights but weren’t satisfied with the outcome on your hairline when you pull up your hair, the “Scandi Hairline” is definitely worth giving a shot.
How can you achieve the look?
Nope, you don’t have to be a natural blonde to pull off this trend. It can suit any hair color. Your hair colorist will take about half an inch wide section of hair along your hairline, including the baby hairs, and apply a lightener using a freehand technique. The bleach is left on for up to 5 minutes, resulting in a brighter hairline that beautifully complements your skin tone.
To maintain a natural appearance, the hairline color should be only one or two shades lighter than your overall hair color. Regular touch-ups every 12 weeks will help you maintain a fresh and effortlessly natural look.
