Sophie Matthews gives us the lowdown on two of the season’s hottest trends
THE TOP KNOT.
Instead of the effortless style that looks like you just rolled out of bed, try a sleek, high pony-tail with a bold bun wrapped around the tie and on the top of the head. Or perhaps try braiding the pony-tail and pinning it on top for a tight, chic look. I love to use Kevin Murphy Shimmer Shine to spritz on this style to give your sleek look a real pop of shine. This look is so simple it’ll become your instant go-to, either for work or a night on the town. Add some bling to your top knot with some gems or clips and you’ll feel polished without the usual fuss and rush.
Tip: The tighter you secure your pony, the more lifted your face will look.
TIGER EYE HAIR COLOUR.
This is the new balayage colour that’s taking over Instagram. It’s all about having lush brunette hair that maintains depth and dimension. The ends gradually get lighter towards the bottom creating contrast. Named after the gemstone, the Tiger Eye technique is a mix of beautiful bronzed caramels and rich copper-brown highlights that melt seamlessly into your mane.
