From flared jeans to tie dye, it seems that everything old is new again – but does the same apply to our hair? According to TONI&GUY Broadbeach, absolutely!
We asked Bernadette Cliff to reveal the top three hair trends for the summer ahead, and they might surprise (and inspire) you…
The modern mullet
Yep, of all of the crazy things that have happened in 2020, the return of the mullet might just be the weirdest. But Bernadette says the 80s mullet your dad knew (and loved) isn’t making a comeback – there are some modern ways to make it not only palatable, but loveable.
“Think more layers and length at the back, perfect for people wanting to scrunch and go or those growing out a pixie cut,” says Bernadette. “Disheveled edges, a reduction in weight and the correct product choice is key to nailing this look.”
Colour block hair
Yes, yes, we know what you’re thinking and, no – growing your roots out doesn’t count as taking on the colour blocking trend. Dua Lipa is one of the pioneers of this trend, which is showing no signs of slowing down.
“Colour blocking is huge in hair right now,” says Bernadette. “We’ve seen the progression from bold ‘money pieces’ to fashion forward bold fringes, 50/50 hair and a lot of playing with cool and warm hues and brilliant brights. Such fun!”
Curls and layers, layers and curls
“Whether you’re a guy or a girl, if you have got curly hair, you are literally the envy of every hairdresser right now!” says Bernadette. “All we want to do is make these curls bigger and better!”
Of course, it is necessary to give your curls the TLC they deserve with a proper style cut, a care and treat routine and the products needed to hydrate and enhance.
“There are so many types of curls out there, so a curl consultation is key to ensuring you are booking in for the right service with your hairdresser,” says Bernadette. “If you hate your curls I guarantee there’s something missing from your hair cut and or your routine – curls rock!
“And for us straight-haired lovelies, we can always fake it – large waves, spiral curls and tight chopstick curls are all doable for your next big event!”
