Maple Mustard: a hybrid of blond, honey, and auburn tones. "The maple glaze is diluted yet gives a warm wash of color that picks up on any pre-lightened areas of hair," said hairstylist Zoe Irwin, who works for Wella as their UK color trend expert.
Irwin has a very specific way of applying these tones, too. "The technique I love using is 'palm painting,' which is from the French way of balayaging. You put the color onto the back of your hand, and then pick up delicate pieces of color and paint it on [the hair]. Then using my fingers, I blend it all in so that the ends get the right level of lightening because of the warmth of my hands," she said. However, you can also ask your colorist to use a typical balayage technique when applying these rich, warm, cozy tones (because yes, a tone can be cozy, OK?).
