Ask the Experts..."How do I update my style this season?" March 14, 2017 14:23
Winter is just around the corner (noooooo), and we are resolving to not only to better our lives but to better our hair as well.
In fact, we decided to turn to Salon Manager & Master Hairdresser, Erin Beech to talk about ways that we can update our everyday hair looks to meet the latest trends for Autumn Winter 2017.
Whether it’s adding a few layers or doing a full hair 180, we asked Erin to fill us in on exactly how to keep our strands looking fresh and fabulous.
Here are her top tips for updating your hair look for the new season.
IF YOU WANT TO FINALLY TRY A FRINGE…
Start the season off with a bang by finally getting the fringe of your dreams. Whether they are strong, soft, side swept or shaggy, bangs are sure to be all the rage for 2017. As Erin puts it, “Fringe is one of the best ways to awaken your hair shape” and we couldn’t agree more. With a few easy snips, you can completely transform your personal style. Be sure to ask your stylist for easy ways to style your new fringe, however, as this cool new accessory is always in need of a little styling maintenance.
IF YOU’RE BORED WITH YOUR OMBRE…
2016 was all about the sombres and ombres. Erin suggests refreshing this sexy hair look by moving up your hair colour. Wondering what this means? Well, as she puts it “By moving up your ombre and balayage, you can keep things looking softer. Your colourist will keep the depth on the scalp and use a hair gloss like Shades EQ for added dimension.” Dimension and glossy hair? Sign us up! This trend is great for those who already love their colour, but are looking for something a little extra.
IF YOU WANT TO BOOST YOUR COMPLEXION…
Forget bronzer! Hair colour is a great way to add warmth to your complexion without piling on any makeup. Erin suggests ditching icy hues cooler months in favour of warmer tones. “Try warmer pastels such as peach, rose gold or pastel yellow for rich warm blonde” or opt for a warm rose gold or pumpkin spice hair colour
With even a simple hair gloss treatment, you can add rich tones to your hair that immediately brighten the look of your skin. Basically, hair colour is the new makeup!
IF YOU WANT A QUICK FIX…
Need a new hairstyle fast? Erin suggests experimenting with new products. “In 2017, I recommend experimenting with new products to totally transform the texture and finish of your current style. It’s a great way to have a “new” look several times a week/month without having to cut your hair constantly!” We have dozens of easy-to-use and unique styling products that can help you to create your best look yet.
IF YOU WANT “IT-GIRL” HAIR…
Bold, beachy hair texture was everywhere in 2016 and this trend’s momentum isn’t slowing down in the new year, according to Erin
She points out, “SoCal (thats Southern Californian for those who haven’t heard the phrase) anything – beachy soft and sexy will be huge in 2017.”
She notes that any hairstyle or colour that enhances movement is the perfect way to elevate your style.
“I love that we are seeing people embrace their natural texture, waves, curls, spirals, and everything in-between,” Erin states. To embrace your own natural texture, reach for haircare and styling products that help to enhance body and movement.
For beachy texture, turn to Redken’s Beach Envy line for imperfect volume and dimension. If you’re looking to bring out the best in your curls, the Curvaceous line is perfect for you no matter what your curl type is.
IF YOUR HAIR IS LOOKING LIMP…
For those with flat, limp looking locks, this winter is the time to pump up your volume. Erin is all about volume and big textured hair. To get quick and easy volume all throughout your hair, start by gently backcombing your roots and setting your tease with Quick Tease 15 hairspray. From there, add texture to your ends with a few sprays of Windblown texturizing spray. It’s guaranteed to give you sexy, windblown hair that lasts all day long.
IF YOU WANT EVERYONE TO DO A TRIPLE TAKE…
One of the biggest trends that Erin couldn’t stop raving about for 2017 is the pastel hair colour trend. Whether you want a dusty mauve shade or a gorgeous rose gold hair colour, pastels are an exciting way to be bold and edgy, while still looking soft and glamorous. What more could you ask for this winter
It’s time to let your hair make a statement. Whether you decide to gloss it up or go bold with a vivid hair colour, let your hair be your best accessory over the coming months
