Autumn/Winter Hair Trends 2017/2018

It’s always fun to go down to London and to see what’s going, as it’s the melting pot for hair and fashion trends. When I go down there I always see a lot of inspirational hair trends and different things, from a really strong catwalk look to people wearing their hair like they’ve just rolled out of bed… (Me for example, and as a hairdresser you can feel and make it look like it’s perfectly acceptable).

As everyone knows, Kim Kardashian has brought the platinum blonde hair back. Going from such a dark natural colour to the platinum blonde is an extreme change and a very technical process, and after doing some research I’ve found out that her personal hairdresser did it in around a week!! So if you are thinking of having a big change and want it done yesterday… even Kim K can’t make that happen.    

Through the summer months and the festival season, the pastel tones ranged from lilac, pink and peach to grey, green and blue. Not only are these hard to achieve and difficult to maintain, but they’re also very summer orientated and I personally think as we’re heading into winter and 2018, the pastel hair trend is coming to an end… Which also means something else will take over! The colourful tones have been swapped for white blondes, and heavy makeup has also been toned down to quite natural, bare faces.  

There is a very fine line between a beautiful blonde and a cheap blonde, when you have it done professionally and your stylist spends hours perfecting it then it’s amazing, but just sticking a box colour bleach on your hair in your bathroom at home doesn’t really give the same effect. With winter approaching it’s always nice to tone down bleach blondes to something a little warmer, more natural and easy to maintain. I’ve seen so many people changing their tone of blonde and I personally have changed my clients colours (with their permission, obviously) to something a little more suitable for Autumn/Winter.  

But who knows with these trends, it all moves and changes so quickly, pastels MIGHT be on their way back for 2018…

 
 

Summer Haze to Autumn Days

From Summer Haze to Autumn Days

From our latest Autumn/Winter '17 shoot.... Change with the season by adding warmth and depth to ease you into Autumn. Coffee shades will help soften those bleached out Summer tones leaving you with a warm new style. Heading into Autumn, hair can generally look a little neglected after the Summer heat and sun, so it's always nice to tone it down slightly with some more natural shades.

Evie show how to create the triple pony

This season I am loving the chilled out vibes in clothing and hair. Currently the latest trends on the catwalk are showing just how cool it really is to be seen in joggers and gym wear. To accompany this I created a modern twist on the classic pony by creating what I like to call the triple pony. Try this at home for the ultimate gym look this season.

Evie shows how to create some beachy waves

We're always getting asked by our clients "how do you wave your hair like that?"
It's SO easy to do, so here's a quick video showing how simple it is to create soft, beachy waves using a curling wand and a couple of products to make your hair super textured! I used L’Oreal Constructor, Crepage de chignon and some Infinium hairspray to finish, give it a try yourself!
