Looking to update your hair colour for party season? Before you pick the perfect hair hue for you, check out two of the current biggest trends for AW 18/19, winter blonde and cool copper.
Hair Trends AW18
Winter blonde by Christel Ludqvist
As a child did you have those whispy white blonde locks that looked as though you lived in a sun-drenched land? As blondes grow older, their hair inevitably changes and most often gets darker. With her new Prism Lights Method, award-winning hair specialist Christel Ludqvist aims to bring back that lightness of touch and feel in a sophisticated, grown up way that also works with your complexion. From her salon, Stil, in Notting Hill – which is renowned for its colour expertise – she ‘free hand’ paints on gorgeously light colour to just a few strands at a time, which creates a kind of blonde reflective halo around the face. Brilliant for winter, Christel cleverly chooses colours that work with rather than against the cool British blue of winter. Half head from £250. 020 7243 1521 | stil-salon.com
Cool Copper by Sam Burnett
‘This season’s hot red trend ranges from chestnut to orange and strawberry coppers,’ says Sam Burnett, Owner and Creative Director of Hare & Bone. ‘This type of copper is best suited to light and medium skin tones. If you have amazing curly hair and want to show it off then go for a deeper shade of red as it will expand and accentuate the curl.’ Think Emma Stone and Madeline Brewer for celebrity inspiration. ‘For shorter hair we recommend going for colour blocking, and if you’re feeling bold, go for a vibrant shade of red.’ Colour from £68 | hareandbone.co.uk
