Salons Trends for Summer 2010
Blonde crops, pastel shades,
they're making a comeback, but this time around
they'll need to be gently weaved into the
hair as relaxed styling is the vibe for summer
lace set to be a huge clothing trend
in coming months, for those wanting
to keep up with the fashion brigade,
a demure colour palette will work best
for the hair.
According to Creative Colour Director
for HOB Salons, Christel Lundqvist—who
was named 2008 British Colour Technician
of the Year -
highlighted crops and soft powdery
pastel shades ranging from beige
and vanilla to pink champagne
and lavender are all key. And
for once, there's a colour to
suit everyone as the
influence of the street vibe on
the catwalk means
colours including shot pink , fusion
coral, and rich, glossy terracotta are
set to dominate, but will have a softer
feel than last season's pop-art shades.
Good news too for fans of the blunt
fringe as .
be completely bang-on-trend, those with
long locks should get their hair cut
into a choppy bob as short styles are
back with a vengeance, says 2009 British
Hairdresser of the Year, Akin Konizi
- who is the International Creative
Director for HOB Salons.
The classic bob has been revoked, with
less focus less on rigid structured
styles, and more on romantic curls which
incorporate texture into the hair.
Stylist Sean Dawson said the short textured
hair seen on the catwalk creates "a
to produce a light reflecting
halo". Accessories are huge for
the season as well, so intricate
braids, modern twists, twirls
and coils will also add structure
to otherwise loosened hair.
Decadence is the way to go, don't
be afraid of adding embroidered
lace, flowers, feathers, bronze
hair bands and hair slides to
the classic up do either.
