“This pinky-watermelon colour is becoming increasingly popular with our clients, especially for festivals. The hue suits olive skin tones and is the new millennial pink, and a beautiful shade for the spring and summer seasons. Sandra at the Clapton salon.” Sandra at the Clapton salon
“We’re seeing colour trends move away from the recently-popular grey towards a more silvery metallic look that adds an icey shine to the hair. This is a new massive trend for summer 2018. It remind me of quartz crystals and you you can even add a hint of purple or pink to create subtle hues throughout the hair.” Hannah at the Topshop salon
“Hair clips are a really big trend this year. Black bobby pins will create a pure, minimal aesthetic, especially against blonde hair. I like the simplicity and geometric lines they create against the hair.” Sandra at the Clapton salon.
PUNK FISHTAIL PLAIT
“I created this pink hue with lots of different tones – which taps more into the punk-inspired trend of the moment rather than the more pretty pastels and rose golds we’ve seen a lot of lately. I finished it off with a fish tail braid to show off the texture and the variation of pink tones.” Harriet at the Peckham salon
“Summers getting hot, and sometimes we need our hair out the way. Last season’s trend was all about boxer braids, very tight, very neat. But let’s face it, unless you’re 14 or have your own hairstylist at hand, nobody has time for that. What’s really cool is homemade loose undone plaits. We can all achieve it. The more it falls out, the better it’ll look. This style will last for days, whether you’re at a 3 day festival or rolling through the work week straight into the weekend, you can keep your hair as it is. Play around with different clips bands or even the old school scrunchie.” Oliver at the Topshop salon.
THE 70S FRINGE
“I’ve been seeing a lot of celebrities like Alexa Chung and Dakota Johnson rocking this look and have had a lot of my clients requesting it in the salon. Inspired by the 70’s curtain fringe but with a softer shape and texture to it that adds a modern feel to it. I love this look because it is effortless and versatile so you can wear it to the side or as a full fringe that suits most hair lengths.” Florence at the Topshop salon
