In the past few months, top seasonal trends leaned towards layered hairstyles, as well as innovative colour techniques like balayage, sombre and babylights. This autumn, the hairdressing scene is all about well-blended tones, boyish cuts and ‘throwback’ hair-dos.
Gold and Buttery: ‘Hue’ Be the Star
Whether you have brown, blonde, red or black hair, autumn is all about going for warmer, richer tones, according to the top hairdressers from Sea Wave Salon.
Cinnamon swirl, ecaille and buttery – these words may sound like they have been take from a French cafe menu, but these are the on-trend hues this season. Get your hairdresser to ‘paint’ your tresses a golden, strawberry blonde, or have perfectly rooted golden highlights that seem like a souvenir from Venice Beach. Warm espresso with hints of caramel at the ends also made it to the Trends du jour list.
A classic bleach-and-tone is also on-trend; this is a solid colour that is bright from root to tip, and should be retouched every month. It is a high-maintenance hue, but choose it anyway if you want to go bright, bold and trendy.
Pixies and Fringe Make the ‘Cut’
In the hairstyling scene, autumn is all about throwback ‘60s fringes, long layers and boyish pixie cuts.
Ruby Rose’s famous cheekbone-length cut, a cross between a long pixie and a short bob, is the star of the season. Long airy fringes and tons of long layers, a style made famous by Dakota Johnson, also made it to the list. Stacy Martin’s fringe is on-trend as well – a cut where the shortest strands are at the centre of the forehead, while the longest pieces fade into the length downwards from the cheekbones.
Cropped, shoulder-length strands made it to the list as well. This style may be simple, but it becomes transcendent when the hair underneath the ends is cut slightly shorter.
As the temperatures drop this autumn, start heating up your hair game with these trendy cuts and hues.
