Connecting Fashion Around The World
Looking to change up your hair colour this year? Here are the most fabulous hair trends to watch in 2018, including some fun colours that are ideal for the upcoming spring / summer season.
Balayage is the new way to highlight hair, and once you try the balayage method, you won’t want to go back to the old way of adding colour to your locks! This is a low maintenance colouring option that can ensure gorgeous tresses, without the threat of nasty roots growing back and showing you up. The subtle technique of balayage is often compared to ombre but is very different. With balayage, there are dark pieces left on the bottom to create dimension and a natural (and often sun-kissed) look.
Think untouched, think muted, think simple and chic. It’s the Parisian way to keep your hair au naturel, and natural blondes are the way to go this season. Avoid bleaching at all costs if you want the perfect nude hair! The key to avoid looking dull is to take care of your locks as well as possible. Keep your hair hydrated with non-stripping, natural and organic hair products - and have regular trims to ward off split ends. Healthy hair is everything, ladies!
Fun dip dye colours are still hot for 2018, so don’t be afraid to get creative during the next visit to your colourist. This step by step guide (below) shows you how to get the look in minutes without permanent colouring. All you need are some hair chalks to achieve a simple ‘wash-off’ dip dye. If you don’t want to dry out your natural hair with chalking, hair extensions are definitely recommended.
The term ‘salt and pepper’ refers to greys and whites when it comes to hair colouring. These colours were huge in 2017 and they continue to be big in 2018 too. And we’re not talking about ageing gracefully, we’re talking about going bold with your mane and giving it a platinum finish. Cara Delevingne, Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Jennifer Lawrence, Vanessa Hudgens, Rita Ora and Kim Kardashian are just a few of the celebs who have switched up their shade. And the greatest thing about this icy cool hue is that it can transition from SS to AW effortlessly.
Burnt orange has been a serious hit on the catwalks for SS18, as seen in London, Paris, New York and Milan. But you’ve probably seen it in the form of a chic overcoat, a big transitional mac or some funky sock boots. Well for 2018, the colour is going to blow up in the hair department too, so if you want to add bold and sophisticated warmth to your hair, this is the colour to try.
Alternatively, you can also try dying a wig, hairpiece of hair extensions if you don’t want to cause colour damage to your hair, or if you don’t want to commit to permanent colouring. If you need style inspiration, just Google Kimmy K, Girls Aloud’s Nicola Roberts, Paramore’s Hayley Williams or Nicki Minaj.
