Summer 2018 COLOUR hair trend prediction
We all know that balayage has been out there for a while now but it's still predicted to be the number 1 hair trend in 2018 especially golden balayage as it appears natural and low maintenance. For this look, ensure your hairdresser executes a very subtle gradual change of colour from the crown of your head to the blonde ends.
The second hair colour trend that you’ll see everywhere in 2018 will be grey ombrè colour which, at Royals Hair, we refer to as “salt and pepper. It’s perfect for someone who has a lighter skin tone and coloured eyes.
The third top colour will be white platinum. Yes, this bleach-out colour is super hard to achieve and maintain but it definitely makes a statement.
Last but not least will be what I’m refer to as ‘Tiger Eyes’. This stunning look features shades like honey, caramel and soft brown painted with a balayage technique ensuring it is so subtle when it grows out, saving you from dreaded harsh regrowth and low maintenance results.
Summer 2018 STYLES hair trend prediction
From the styling side, the colour won't show up if it’s not styled properly. Beachy waves are once again set to be a big hit in Summer 2018; think soft ocean breezes, salt water and loose, voluminous soft waves to give that ‘just stepped off the beach’ look.
A main stay style that never goes out of fashion and is often a red carpet ‘go to’ style is the ponytail, worn high or low depending on the occasion or event.
Another trend that is never far from the runway or red carpet and will be hot again in Summer 2018 are the top knots in many variations. Think the high, casual and messy buns, half-up, half-down knot with braids on the top as an added feature, or you can wear it slicked back into a ‘sumo knot’ which is next level classy!
The bob cut is also back in Summer 2018 in all its differing variations. Some trends like the angled bob won’t be as popular, however the casual, wavy bob with texture and movement will be extra fashionable.
