UK: Negative Space Color
"Negative space is either your natural hair color against prelightened pieces, or we create that negative space with hair color," said Jack Howard, colorist at UK's Paul Edmonds Salon and Schwarzkopf global Blondme ambassador. "This is the look on all the hottest models and influencers filling your Instagram feed. It's lighter around the face and has a balance that's pleasing to the eye. You need that contrast to stop the color from looking solid, which can look like an ombré or a single process."
Plus, it doesn't matter your base color — the negative space technique works on all tones. "It suits anyone who wants something modern and fresh and works on hair that's bob-length and longer," he said.
