Winter hair trends 18

Leading Winter hair trends for 2018


Not sure what look to go for this Winter? Well according to AFHA Victorian Hairdresser of the Year, Jacky Chan, there will be a lot of blush pink and pastels coming out of the salon this Winter. Pastel colours are making their way into day-to-day styles with our expert colourists using Redken PhBonder (Ask your OO stylist about PhBonder) to protect hair rather than damage it to achieve certain shades. Pre-lightening is key to creating and achieving stunning pastel looks. Also on the trend alert are warm, bright blondes which certainly challenge the typical ‘going dark for winter’ stereotype we have become accustomed too.

Foliage is the latest in colour techniques. Similar to balayage but achieved by foiling through the bulk of the hair to lighten.

Jacky says we can certainly look forward to lots of fun and fashionable embellishments and accessories, especially hair scarves and beaded barrettes. High ponytails and top-knots are in and the messier the better. Unstructured styles with fly-aways and a hair scarf will put you at the top of the trend report!

As far as cuts and styling go you will definitely notice lots of swooping seventies fringes and big bold retro blowouts coming back into fashion. Think Farrah Fawcett with plenty of volume, bounce and shape. Micro-fringes or the ‘accidental fringe’ will also be making a statement.

The long-bob still holds a place in every hairdresser’s heart, but we are seeing more of a mid-length cut with a razored end, rather than the blunt finish we are used to. Razoring encourages natural movement of the hair, again giving it a messy, textured look. For the edgier client, the wet sleek look around the hairline and face area with a messy, disheveled finish at the ends is very much in style.

If you thought it was the season for chocolate-brunettes, all Jacky can say is “think again!”.
