The Mane Event: embrace your hair goals with these AW Trends
Toying with the idea of a transformation of the mane variety? Let the change in season be your cue to embrace your hair goals.
Lighten Your Load
Despite the cooler weather, break from the traditional movement towards darker tones with lighter hues to help you shine through the darker days. From Stone Blond (as bright as platinum but all about soft, tonal dimension - offering a similar feeling with less commitment), Buttercream, and Rose, embrace with full saturation or simply elevate your colour with trimmings of high-shine gloss or rose-dipped tips.

Everything from concave to asymmetrical in lobs and bobs, the cut once popularised by Victoria Beckham has returned. Smooth and straight, wavy or curly, embrace your unpredictable side with this shorter style.

The bang on bang trend is a fringe sitting just above the brow line. It is best suited to straighter, smoother hair types. Stylist tip - always remember to cut your fringe while dry, otherwise short will be too short. Nervous about the chop? You don’t need to do a full Tay Tay to adopt – do a Dakota (Johnson) with longer, curtain bangs or sweep you full fringe slightly to the side. Still afraid? Opt for a commitment-free, Kendall Jenner-approved clip-in.

With a nod to the 70s, the modern shag is tipped to be everywhere this year. Before you dive head-first into a Farrah or Fonda, today’s version is softer and less choppy. For medium to long hair, the relaxed, effortless style is all about easy, soft texture. Think of a hybrid mullet and shag……….you guessed it, a Shullet!

Love You Long-Time
If you love you locks long and can’t wait to grow it yourself, extensions are becoming more attainable for the non-celebrities amongst us. Depending on your skill level (and of course budget), there are so many options to give you instant gratification.
- Clip-ins can be DIY and snap onto sections of your own hair at the root
- Tape-ins are taped or glued along your roots by a stylist
- Sew-ins (aka “a weave”) are sewn to your own braided-up hair by a stylist
- Keratin extensions: tiny strands are heated and bonded to individual strands of your own hair with a keratin-based glue
- I-tips: strands that are crimped to strands of your own hair with a flattened microbead, without using any heat or glue
