Let’s talk hair people; with Christmas and New Year’s just around the corner some of you may be looking for a change or just some tips on how to get the right look for your Christmas/ New Year’s parties! I am here to offer you some insider information on this year’s hair trends for fall/winter.

One word…BLONDE.  We are seeing lots of Blonde going into winter.  From bleached out to soft and subdued, rose golds and strawberry blondes.  OR alternatively, very cool blonde with a dropped root to soften a bold look.  Also, making the grow out less painful! So, if you were thinking of seeing if Blondes really do have more fun now is the time to do it! 😉          

Don’t worry my darker haired gals…..don’t feel left out! We are still seeing lots of soft ombres, balayage, baby lights (whichever term you like to use), we get the best of both worlds!  Again, caramels, chocolates, coppers, ruby and jewel tones; more of the soft and subtle tones. 

Texture; EMBRACE IT!  We are seeing lots of different texture.  It’s all about embracing what your mother gave you!  Bringing back the style from the 20’s, 30’s, & 40’s.  Big, bold, voluminous curls, tousled waves, and finger waves.  If you have straight hair it’s about embracing your more sleek look as well!    

With the whole idea of embracing your own texture, let’s talk about your haircut!  Everyone needs the right haircut for their texture, thickness, and density, and let’s be honest not all trendy haircuts are for everyone!  But, this being about trends, we are seeing bobs, lobs, soft bangs, and strong parts, be it a deep side part or a strong middle.  When doing a little research into the haircut trends for this season it reminded me a lot of flapper girls!  The shorter bob with little to no graduation, blunter and one length. Add some finger waves, and a headband with some feathers and voila…take me back to the 20’s. 

As for long haircuts, blunt is back.  We are seeing less layering and texture, but softening the look with some sort of bang.  If you have crazy thick hair let’s talk undercuts….don’t be frightened ladies, it may sound scary, but it could change your life! It’s like a built-in air vent under a canopy of those luscious locks!  And it could be that little bit of edginess you were looking for!  Have seen some of the cool designs your hairstylist can do to give you that little bit of umph??!!

This leads me into an interesting concept…the faux undercut.  This is a change without the actual the whole snip, chop, bleach, colour!  Have I caught your attention?!  If you have shoulder length hair or longer and have some layering going on, you can style it in a way that gives the false image of having actual short hair!! SAY WHAT?!  Yes!! This is a really cool concept and it is totally in! 

Other styles on trend flowing over into this season from previous trends with a sleeker feel are low ponies, braids, and knots!  You could even combine all three!  If this sounds a little too difficult to achieve yourself you know where to find us!!  Book in today and we will make all your holiday hair dreams come true!!!
