If you’ve yet to see this hair color trend up close, we are here to fill you in on what you have been missing.  Shadow Box Hair color is a highly versatile hair color technique that can be customized to fit just about anyone’s personal style. This is an all over color where the hair color is applied from your roots to your ends, producing one uniform hair color.  This is done with permanent color and can be used to lighten or darken the hair in one single process. Make it bold and sassy or keep it subtle and classy, whichever way you want it, shadow box is the perfect trend to transition you into a new season. How do you like it girls?

What Is Shadow Box Hair Color?

The hair from the ear down in the back of the head (the nape area) is colored differently than the rest of the hair and is a strikingly different hair color. The outer most layers of the hair are typically light while the hair underneath is darker. The best part about this trend is that it can be very natural looking but going bold can be very edgy.  Depending on the colors you choose to use, you can truly make this trend your own. Some even choose to get highlights combined with shadow box and there is actually very minimal damage with color like this!

Shadow Box Hair Color Technique

What makes this technique unique is how the hair is separated. The hair is usually separated at the nape of the neck. The top layer is colored differently from the bottom layer. Usually shadow boxes are done with dark or vibrant colors, however that is not always the case.  If you are looking for a subtle color gradient the layering simply has to be more strategic and detailed.
