After the last 18 months, styling by season and playing it safe are a thing of the past. People want to feel free to express themselves and live their best lives. And what better way to show everyone how you’re feeling than with hair wilder than your dreams. With an emphasis on our authentic selves, and balancing this with the desire to go all out after the minimalist cut’s and colour of the pandemic, we’re ready to go all out and we hope you’ll come with us!
The wolf cut is TikTok’s newest trending hair topic. If you love the idea of the more drastic shag or the mullet and want a softer hybrid of the two then this is your answer. Very much on the wild side, think lots of shaggy, wavy layers. Fueling your inner rock chick and bringing back the bangs, it’s the ultimate cool girl style and this summer is the right time to go radical. Easy to style with textured spray and a little bit of heat on the fringe, this is an easy low maintenance day to day style.
This take on the bob haircut is really as simple yet impactful as it gets — let your hairdresser know you’re after minimal layers and no angling like an A-line bob would have and slighter longer than your average bob for a more sophisticated less drastic cut. If you’re not blessed with the thickest of hair, this style will work to bring you volume and thickness through the bluntness of a bob. If you’re after more dimension then just add bangs!
Money Piece Highlights
Now the money piece highlights have come a long way. This style has come a long way since it’s reputation as the botched 90’s box dye job of the old days! They’re bold babylights, framing the face to create a natural sunkissed look, highlighting the eyes and popping against the rest of your colour. With colour, picture references are always a good idea. Also think about how bold you want to go, either as a straight bold streak or a softer face frame!
Rich experiental colours
The key with colour this season? To embrace diversity and play around with styles and variety, defy the norms! Auburn tones and reds in the hair are finally being embraced, go for bold like the beautiful SZA showing us all this colour looks great on everyone. Anything with warmer tones is perfect for that summer sun kissed look we’re all craving at the moment, so embrave those reddish brown hues either as an all over colour or a 90’s chunky highlight.
For those of us on the curly side, the lockdown was a chance to embrace natural hair. And now with the help of our hairdressers we can experiment with different lengths and bangs to excentuate those natural coils and bring them back to life. This look requires no colour maintenance if you choose to let your texture do all the work, all the while keeping that cool, lived-in look going throughout the summer.
