Hair trends for the time after the corona lockdown
The next visit to the hairdresser is long overdue. Everyone longs for a change or at least a little more swing in their tired hair. We'll tell you now what the big hair color trends will be after the lockdown and what small changes you can make now.
Are you longingly waiting for your next visit to the hairdresser? Use the time to think about which look you want to try after the corona lockdown and be inspired by the following hair color trends.
"Many of my clients have written to me that their hair feels dull and lifeless," says hairdresser George Northwood, who counts Alexa Chung and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. "If you want to freshen up your look, I recommend glossing it up." The color and shine treatment refines the existing hair color and makes it appear fuller. The result is the same as after a visit to the hairdresser, even if you did the glossing at home. A tip for the time after the lockdown is the "Redken Shades EQ Gloss" treatment (more information and a salon finder can be found here).
For Alex Brownsell, co-founder and creative director of Bleach London, honey blonde is the next big hair color trend. She explains that this is a very easy-care color and one that you can get without a hairdresser if you are already blonde. "Honey blonde has always been a very popular hair color at Beach London and a warm, softer alternative to cool shades of ash or silver-blonde," says Brownsell. "Also, the hair color requires fewer treatments between salon visits because bleached hair naturally has warm or yellow undertones."
If you have brown hair but would like to be blonde, the honey blonde could be a good option for you as well once the salons reopen. As Brownshell explains, the hair doesn't need to be lightened as much as with beige or white blonde. If you have decided on honey blonde, you can try the "Semi-Permanent Hair Color Cream Just like Honey" from Bleach London to give the hair golden reflections.
Hairstylist Luke Hersheson is convinced that color contrasts will become more important, and points to Kate Moss and Dua Lipa. "Dua Lipa wore a pretty extreme version of the look where the hair was blonde on top and dark on the bottom, and Kate [Moss] wore light highlights in her otherwise dark hair in the late 90s." It's a fresher, modern twist on balayage and a good thing if you don't want to go to the barber every six weeks to freshen up your highlights.
Silhouette slicing is, so to speak, contouring the hair. With this dyeing technique, high and low lights are placed around the face, which flatters the shape of the face and underlines the individual beauty. The term comes from Color Director Seniz Alkan of Neville Salon in London, who explains that this technique makes hair color look fresh longer. "We match the shade and depth exactly to the skin of our clients," says Alkan.
