Replaced by the fashionable techniques of coloring shatush and balayazh came a new way with the beautiful name "tiger eye". It is suitable only for owners of dark or dark blond hair. Coloring "tiger eye" won not only the stars of show business, but also fashionistas who follow trends in the beauty industry. About him, and will be discussed in the article.
Why is it called that?
The name “tiger eye” has not got its name at all because of the love for the representatives of the cat family. There is also nothing in it to resemble a tiger color. This technique applies to highlighting using only warm shades of paint.
Hair coloring "tiger eye" implies the creation of highlights of a light caramel color on dark hair. The result is a smooth transition from chocolate to amber shades. Such glare resembles the play of a semiprecious stone tiger eye, therefore the technique received such a name.
Previously, among the brunettes was popular effect of sun-bleached hair, which was not so difficult to achieve and without going to the salon. But creating a tiger's eye overflow will require some skill and patience. Therefore, if you want your hair to resemble a Hollywood hairstyle, it is better to contact a qualified colorist.
Advantages of this method
The tiger eye dyeing technique has several advantages due to which many women want to try out this trend. The positive points are as follows:
- hair will appear more voluminous
- hairstyle will gain airiness,
- visually curls will seem resilient and resilient,
- Correct selection of shades makes the image more fresh and youthful,
- staining does not require frequent updates,
- Coloring does not harm the bulk of the hair.
Disadvantages of tiger coloring
Despite the fact that the result looks beautiful, does not need frequent updating and is suitable for any length of hair, there are also disadvantages in coloring:
- suitable only for owners of dark hair. Some colorists try to apply this technique to both fair-haired and red-haired girls, but it doesn’t look as impressive as brunettes,
- The procedure is quite long. Of course, the coloring turns out to be multifaceted, with overflows, but not everyone is willing to spend a lot of time on coloring
- the difficulty of doing at home. On this account, the opinions of experts are different: some believe that home staining is aerobatics, others believe that there is nothing difficult in staining the "tiger eye". But still you should not try to do it yourself if you have insufficient experience in painting.
How is it done?
Specialists compare the tiger-eye hair coloring with painting on canvas. That is why it is difficult to do at home. The specialist dyes the strand in the form of a letter V in a light shade: the sharp end faces the tips of the hair, which are painted completely. The strand is wrapped in foil and additionally in polyethylene. This is done so that dyed hair does not touch each other.
The coloring composition is left for 30 minutes. Depending on the effect of the dye, the master can increase the time. Next comes the stage of shampooing, light drying with a hair dryer and coloring the roots. The colorist selects the shade as close as possible to the natural color.
Next, the master starts toning. Smears of selected shades are applied on the strands. After the coloring is completed, the hair is washed and a moisturizing balm is applied, because strands were lightened.
By the time the procedure takes about 2-3 hours, but the result is amazing - the hair style plays with other colors. In order to get the desired effect, show the master of the photo tiger hair dyeing with the hairstyle you want.
After coloring "tiger eye" hair does not require any special recommendations for hair care. About once a week, you need to saturate them with nutrients using repair masks. It will also be useful hair moisturizing balm, because strands brightened.
This technique looks great on the curls, so if you have to use various devices to create them, you should not forget about thermal protection, so as not to injure the structure of the hair.
Difference from balayazh
After familiarizing yourself with the tiger technique of coloring, you may think that it is no different from the equally popular way of balayazh. Yes, they have a similar hair coloring method. In both cases, for the master, the hair is a canvas on which he paints a picture in highlights. But still there are some differences.
Unlike balayazha this technique is suitable only for brunettes. Its peculiarity consists in the fact that a warm gamut is used - these are honey and caramel shades. The resulting contrast between the main color and the strands is more pronounced and sharp than in balayazh. New technology has quickly gained popularity, there are many photos of tiger-eye staining both among stars and fashionistas.
The new trend is ideal for those who do not want to radically change their image. "Tiger eye" is a rather gentle dyeing technique that allows you to maintain the quality of the hair. The hairstyle takes on a more well-groomed and elegant look, it becomes brighter, many-sided. Warm shades emphasize the beauty and depth of dark hair. The main thing is to choose a qualified master who knows how the "tiger eye" differs from other popular techniques. If you want to do it at home, it will be difficult to do it yourself. Therefore it is necessary to seek help from a specialist. Your image will certainly be spectacular and will cause admiration.
The origin of technology
The Tiger Eye staining scheme has no connection with the animal world. it name borrowed from the extraordinary beauty of natural stone. Tiger's eye (stone) people knew in ancient Rome, its color includes a lot of gorgeous colors: from dark chocolate to rich caramel. It is such transitions on dark strands suggests the highlighting of the "tiger eye".
He came up with an unusual technology for staining Cory Tuttle's curls. There are two types of coloring: for brunettes and an inverted range of shades for blondes. Caramel fashionable strands with pleasure are Jessica Alba, Jennifer Lopez, Joan Smoles.
Who is suitable for highlighting "tiger eye"?
Amber-chocolate tints highlighting "tiger eye" look favorably on the owners of dark, brown hairwhich have a warm skin type, green / brown eyes. For pale and dark-skinned ladies this type of highlighting may not be suitable.
Blonde Tiger Eye is not, but the lady may wish to change the image, painting most of the hair in a dark color, in this case, the technique will be acceptable for a fair-haired woman. For blondes, there is also another method of highlighting, which involves the use of the opposite color gamut. The length of the strands for such a highlighting technique does not matter, the “tiger eye” looks great on short and long hairstyles.
Choosing the right shades
Highlighting the "tiger eye" involves the use of caramel, honey, golden, copper shades for coloring individual strands, rich chocolate tones are used as a basis for highlighting. Ladies who have a natural dark shade of hair can not buy a base color, leave the natural color of hair as the basis.

- Get dyed hair care products (shampoo, balsam, mask, even thermal protection for streaked hair is sold).
- Immediately after the procedure, refrain from visiting saunas and swimming pools (chlorine adversely affects the paint, “washes out” it). The ban is removed on the fifth day after highlighting.
- Wear a hat before going out into the open sun, ultraviolet negatively affects not only the hair, but also the skin of the face.

Advantages and disadvantages, who will suit, who does not
Initially, the idea was born in the female head: British stylist Corey Tuttle came up with a wayhow to save the ladies from frequent trips to the hairdresser in order to dye the growing hair roots (a man would hardly have bothered to deal with this problem).
As conceived by Cory Tuttle, it is necessary to paint separate locks not from the root itself, but slightly belowin this case, the woman and after a rather long period of time looks perfect, as if she just came from a hairdresser.
This mode of highlighting has several advantages:
Practical persons will be pleased to realize that Tiger's eye will reduce the number of trips to the hairdresser, which means that it will save the wallet from unnecessary encroachments.
Besides, hair will be spared from the next portions of "chemistry" - This is an argument for those who care about their health in any detail.
The tiger eye is universal: there are practically no age and status restrictions for this type of highlighting, it is good for hair of different lengths, straight and curly.
As for color, certain problems arise here (and this is one of the drawbacks of the Tiger Eye) - blondes and redheads he does not quite fit.
In addition, the palette of highlighting may seem poor for those who love outrageous colors (pink, blue, green): Tiger Eye does not go beyond the natural brown and gold shades.

For short, medium or long strands
The length of the curls, of course, is important, but not decisive: Tiger Eye will look interesting on hair of any length. It is well combined with different variants of haircuts - bob, ladder, square, cascade.
In terms of technology, painting is also very convenient, since curls tinted at the same time, in full: for a woman to reincarnate, it will take two hours, even if there is a magnificent head of hair — not the worst victim in the name of beauty.
“Flip through” photo galleries on the Internet - for most beauties strands reach the middle of the back. And this is quite understandable.
Remember, in "Cinderella" a catch phrase - "Eh, the kingdom is not enough, there is nowhere to roam"? So it is here: the larger the “front of work”, the more opportunities the stylist has to “roam”, show off his skill, create a fantastically beautiful image.

Most experts believe that Tiger eye created exclusively for brunettes.
For fair-haired, on the contrary, a number of strands will need to be darkened. Do it smoothly, as recommended by Cory Tuttle, so that there is no sharp contrast.
As additional flowers take "amber", "buckwheat honey" and "milk chocolate". Approximately the same shades, only slightly more saturated, are used when highlighting red-haired ladies.

Then toning occurs. Typically, the master performs it in the sink, spreading strands over its surface, and, like an artist, applies strokes of selected shades to them.
After that - a few minutes of waiting until the paint works, then rinsing and treating the strands with balsam.
The final stage is hair drying and slight curling., as curly hair especially effectively demonstrate the result.
Specialists usually recommend moisturizers for women to care for their hair, as the strands still dried out when bleached.

“I wanted to simplify the life of the girls and create a coloring that would“ grow ”well, just be done and did not require frequent updates.”
And the stylist succeeded!
Coloring, albeit similar to ombra and balayazhem, but here are used only warm colors: copper, honey, golden, caramel, milk chocolate, chestnut. The technique consists in a combination of shades from this group in one coloring.
The main condition is a smooth transition from a dark tone at the roots to a light one at the tips.
At the same time, it is technically simpler to make this coloring to a master than balayazh, which means that it is cheaper - good news for fashionistas.

But there is a technique and limitations. So, on completely black and completely blond hair, it is a little more difficult to make this dye. But girls with red hair will have to choose for themselves another dyeing technique, since on such a natural base, soft play will look blurry.
As for the length of the hair, the "Tiger's Eye" looks good on both long and short hair that reaches the chin line. The haircut is also not important for the application of this technique: Tiger Eye perfectly combines with a ladder, a bob, an extended bob, a cascade and other options.

Features and benefits of painting Tiger eye
Hair coloring Tiger's eye is a real trend of the season, which has managed to catch the eye of recognized style icons. Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Alba, Kate Beckinsale, Miranda Kerr - now you can join the list of Hollywood fashionistas.
What is tiger eye staining?
This is a sequence of warm caramel and chocolate shades.
The creator of the technique, American hairdresser-stylist Corey Tuttle successfully noticed the reason why it is worth painting in the style of “tiger eye”.
It is proved that the same stone repels negative energy through a combination of its shades. It is reasonable to assume that this works with appropriate highlighting.
Tiger Eye on the technique almost does not differ from the classical highlighting. The only difference is in the choice of colors and the characteristic glossy shine. Natural amber-chocolate tones are used here:
- golden chestnut
- milk chocolate,
No blond, red or bright, flashy colors. Allowed variations in the brightness level of the same shade - from saturated to pastel, translucent. This gives color additional depth, volume.
It is important to choose a shade that complements your natural color, without contrasting transitions. For example, caramel, cinnamon, cocoa will suit brown women. Brunettes - shades of coffee, chocolate or amber.
Technique tiger eye involves applying paint with a distance of several centimeters from the roots. This is a big advantage. Even after two or three months the hairstyle looks fresh, well-groomed.
In the technological sense, painting is also convenient. Since the strands are tinted at the same time, the whole procedure takes a maximum of two hours, even if your hair is very thick.
How does tiger eye staining differ from other types of highlighting?
The fundamental difference between the Tiger Eye and other modern techniques is the use of chocolate-copper shades and the way paint is distributed.
If the ombra, balayazhe mainly worked out the lower part of the hair, here the paint is applied almost from the roots.
There are no stretch marks in color, the tips are not lightened. The result of the technique is a vertical pattern with a difference in tones of 2 or more levels.
Tiger eye staining is easier than ombra or balayazh, respectively, is cheaper.
But at home it is not easy to do. Technique requires the creation of an accurate, neat pattern. Going to the salon, do not forget to take a photo for an example of the result you want to get.

Who is suitable?
The color spectrum of the tiger eye is suitable for all dark shades of hair. They look great on brown-haired women, brunettes, fair-haired with a warm skin tone and brown, green or hazel eyes.
Dark-haired girls are recommended to make dark highlights in the tiger-eye technique.
Suitable length, hair structure
The shape and length of the haircut for coloring “tiger eye” does not matter - it looks good on long, short, straight, curly strands.
Yet this technique is more often chosen by girls with long or medium cascading haircuts. It is easy to explain. “Tiger eye” varies depending on the lighting, he likes to shimmer in the sun.
Then the amber-chocolate shades become lighter, festive. On short haircuts such an effect will not achieve. The structure of the hair does not matter. Thin soft strands, on the contrary, become more lush, strong in appearance.
Who is not suitable
Blonde and red-haired such coloring will not work. They can change their color to dark, and then highlight it in this technique. But it will directly negatively affect the quality of the hair.
Despite the gentle action of highlighting, the procedure will have to be postponed if you have dry, brittle tips.
What paints are used?
The procedure is performed with high quality semi-permanent paints. So, when washing the color you get a natural look of hair, which does not require re-dyeing.
If you use multiple colors, choose products of the same brand.

Algorithm action when staining tiger eye
For home tint using the tiger eye technique, it is important to choose the right shade. It should match your natural color of hair. Ideally, the overflow between shades is as smooth as possible. Prepare:
- paint one of the above shades,
- brightener (at least 10% for dark curls),
- comb to separate the hair into strands,
- non-metallic container for paint mixing
- old towel
- shampoo and balm.
How to dye your hair:
- Protect your hands with gloves, throw a sheet over your shoulders.
- Cut the foil into equal pieces. Their length should be equal to the length of the strands with an increase of 1 cm per bend.
- Twist the edges of the foil.
- Prepare the coloring composition according to the instructions.
- Comb with a long thin handle, separate the strands that are chosen for dyeing.
- Alternately lay a foil under each strand (stepping back from the roots 2-4 cm) and apply a brightener.
- Wrap the foil.
- Leave for 20 minutes.
- Wash off with warm water.
- Apply paint to bleached paint using the same technology. Remember that we don’t touch the basal zone.
- Hold for half an hour.
- Wash your hair with a special shampoo and balm.
- With short haircuts we act by analogy. The only thing is that they can be slightly combed at the roots to make it easier to distinguish the treated area.
- Another option for coloring haircuts with a length of strands up to 15 cm is the use of a special polyethylene cap.
Experienced colorists do not use foil for this procedure. The master works exclusively with a brush, his actions resemble the work of the artist.
Professional approach implies:
- competent assessment of the state of curls,
- use of quality materials
- a set of strands taking into account features of appearance,
- creating a neat pattern
- correct selection of colors, which corresponds to the natural color of the curls, skin tone,
- less harm to health, because foil is not used (there is no aggressive chemical reaction).
At home, to achieve an impressive effect is difficult. But staining “at the level of” can be quite capable of those who already have relevant experience.
Care for hair after dyeing
The chemical effect of ammonia even in a small amount drains curls. Therefore, regularly use:
- Indelible dry tip products
They cover the strands with a protective layer that prevents overdrying and brittleness.
- Moisturizing Masks, Professional Series Balsams
Also maintain a normal level of moisture in the hair shaft.
- Thermal protective equipment with SPF factor
Protect from hot air during the drying of the hair, hot styling (although it is better to completely abandon them), sun rays while relaxing on the beach.
To preserve color, use:
- shampoos, balms, masks for colored hair,
- headgear on a sunny day.
If possible, go through the procedure of biolamination or glazing curls - so they will be protected from external influences.
- from oil products - they contribute to the leaching of pigment,
- from visiting the pool - chlorinated water dries curls, washes out color.
Highlighting the tiger eye is an American trend that quickly became popular in Russia. Many popular stars have already experienced it (Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Alba, etc.), why not try us?
Ideally, a professional colorist should perform the technique. But, armed with a step-by-step algorithm of actions, you can carry out the procedure at home.

Tiger eye - hair dyeing technique
Highlighting has long gone beyond the selection of thin white strands on a dark base. The technique has a lot of variations, now it is used to create the most natural, stylish and elegant hairstyles.
Tiger eye - hair coloring, which literally blew up the hair industry this year. World stars consider it their duty to dye their hair in a fashionable color and share the results with fans in social networks.
What is the latest trend, and how you can try on a charming look, we will examine in detail.
If you are thinking about tiger staining, do not immediately remember what the eyes of an animal look like. In fact, the technology has nothing to do with representatives of the fauna. It got its name in honor of the same semiprecious stone. The combination of soft shades of brown palette and glossy surface - this is what combines fashionable technique with a mineral.
The founder of the trend is star stylist Corey Tuttle, who first began to combine warm colors for coloring the dark base. Initially, Corey wanted to simplify the lives of women and create such a technology that does not require frequent refreshment. She managed to do it to the fullest, because not only Hollywood stars, but also their fans wear a fashionable tone with pleasure.
Experts all over the world quickly realized that the novelty was becoming megapopular, and adopted it to translate it into the head of their clients.
A distinctive feature of painting hair tiger eye is the use of only warm shades. Strands stand out best on the basis of a dark color; they can be copper, honey, gold, caramel, chestnut, cinnamon or other colors.
However, hair must not be dark. Blondes make a cat's eye with the help of reverse staining. On a light base, the curls are not lightened, but, on the contrary, darkened in warm shades of a brown palette. The effect is stunning, hair takes a completely new look and refreshes the image.
The only base color unsuitable for performance of technology is red, on it soft overlaps will look blurry. In addition, the porous structure of the fiery curls does not allow the pigments to linger in them for a long time.
The tiger eye has much in common with other types of highlighting. Technique involves a smooth transition from dark roots to bright ends. Pigments are applied to the pre-clarified strands so that the shade most clearly stands out on the base.
You can make the coloring in the cabin, the cost of the service is not too high. If you do not have time to visit the master, try to try on a fashionable image of the house.
We will consider step by step how to make a beautiful and fashionable painting.
You can dye the medium length hair yourself, but for treatment of long hair it is better to ask for help. The technique is quite simple, but it’s not very convenient to distribute colors along long strands.
Before painting you need to prepare all your inventory:
- two non-metallic containers in which you will dilute the brightener and paint,
- rubber gloves for protecting hands,
- foil or thermal paper,
- brush and sponge for applying the composition,
- colors of selected shades
- lightening agent
- shampoo for colored hair,
- nourishing balm.
Also take care of the protective cape - it will help protect your belongings from dye. It is desirable to carry out the procedure in the bathroom, as the tile is washed much easier than other surfaces.
There is no need to treat the hair growth zone with wax or greasy cream, as we will begin coloring 2-4 cm below the roots.
Instructions for medium and long hair
- We mix the clarifier in a separate container according to the manufacturer's instructions.
- We put on gloves, choose in any order thin strands all over the head of hair.
- Apply a lightening compound to each strand with a brush, indenting 2-4 cm from the root zone.
So that the tool does not stain the rest of the hair, put a foil under the treated areas.
We separate the clarified strands and apply pigments on them so that the tone at the top is the darkest and the bottom becomes lighter. The roots are not affected, we make smooth transitions between tones, blending the dye with a brush or sponge.
Instructions for short hair
- We make a strong bouffant of the root zone so that the tips are sticking out in different directions.
- We process thin strands of clarifier, retreating from the roots by 2 cm.
- Keep the composition for the required time, then rinse with water.
Highlighting in the style of tiger eye looks great on the hair - this is proved by the numerous photos of celebrities and ordinary women who managed to try on themselves a new trend.
Despite the fact that the coloring is gentle, after him the curls must be very carefully looked after. Compliance with simple rules will help you to extend the brightness and saturation of the shade and keep your hair healthy.
- Use only cosmetics for dyed hair - it contains the optimal amount of nourishing and moisturizing ingredients, prevents the color from quickly eroding,
- refrain from visiting the sauna and swimming pool, chlorinated water is the worst enemy of the colored hair,
- during the summer period, use protective equipment with UF-filters - try to stay under the sun for as little time as possible so that the strands do not fade,
- hide curls under clothes in winter - frost destroys their structure,
- try to use less equipment for hot-laying, and if it is impossible to do without them, use thermoprotective agents,
- twice a week, make nourishing masks - you can buy them in the store or prepare them yourself,
- trim split ends in time so that the bundle does not spread over the entire length,
- do not comb wet hair, be sure to wait until it is completely dry before using the comb.
The novelty of 2017 - coloring in the colors of the tiger eye - won the hearts of millions of women. The technology has many advantages, it is almost universal, because it is so popular.
Despite all the advantages, highlighting should be postponed, if you have very weak and brittle hair - for the beginning they will need to be cured, and only then dyed. It should also be remembered that the procedure for changing the color can be carried out no more than once every 2 weeks, even if you are using gentle formulations.
Correctly follow all instructions of stylists, and warm shades linger in the curls for a long time.
