Sophie Matthews gives us the rundown of top hair colours and styles for 2017.
This colouring technique is still on the frontline for hair trends for 2017, with a slight change in that regrowth is softer. It’s a great option due to the little maintenance that’s required.
TIP: This versatile colour can be jazzed up from traditional foiling by adding ‘baby lights’ to create striking sun-kissed locks, perfectly suitable for short, long and all textures of hair.
Go With The Season
As the environment around you changes with the season, so should your hair colour. Go lighter, brighter, this spring/summer; creamy blondes look lush on the beaches all the way to your friend’s barbecue. As for autumn/winter, warm your way through the seasons by adding glossy caramels, coppers and soft reds to this revolutionising hair trend.
The New Colour
Rose gold is also coming in strong this year; I would say it’s one of the most wearable trends. The colour looks great covering your entire head of hair, or play with highlights.
TIP: Coat your ends with rose gold. It is a subtle style as opposed to other more vibrant colours.
Straight and Sleek
Straight, shiny, and centre-parted hair is a great professional look. But this style only works if your hair looks healthy. Be sure to mist a heat protectant through your hair before touching it with a straightener. I recommend Redken’s Iron Shape for shine and hold.
This was a surprising hit haircut in 2016. This year, those layers and fringes have grown out. On trend is hair that hits just past the shoulders and fringes that are long enough to be split down the middle, the grown-out shag is the haircut to keep an eye on this year.
The Deep Side Part
Much like the hair flip, this is easiest hairstyle trend to copy this year. All it requires is for you to flip your hair from one side to the other, creating lots of volume as a result. I love texture powders to create volume, and Kevin Murphy Powder Puff is a must-have in my hair kit. A little smoothing is okay, but the less structured, the better. The smooth deep side part is particularly big on ladies with shorter lengths.
