Goldwell has chosen its annual Color of the Year for 2021: LILAC AURA.
“Lilac Aura defines 2021 as an electric pastel tone with two distinct characteristics," says Jane Boddy, Colour and Trend Forecaster.. "It provides comfort as it hints at mid-century nostalgia while simultaneously embodying the digital revolution. Lilac Aura is plucked from the digital world, reflecting the latest developments in VR and gaming but retains a familiar quality. This is a pastel that echoes the past but proclaims the future.“
John Moroney, Global Creative Director Goldwell, says the color called out to his team of colorists. “The moment our team of International Artists saw Lilac Aura, they immediately started formulating it with Elumen. The color has so much commercial potential – it strikes a wonderful balance between soft and flirtatious while still have a calm serenity. It will look great in just about everyone’s hair!”
