You won’t believe the hair trend making a return.
Are you sitting down?
What I am about to reveal might just blow your mind a little.
The mullet is coming back. Canberra hairdresser Jenni Tarrant from Bond Hair Religion is predicting we’ll see this and the shag look a lot more as the weather warms up.
Jenni says the new trend takes pretty, and turns it powerful.
“The shag and mullet take the 2016/17 hair trends of the past and turns them on their heads,” she says.
“The rebellion on soft waves and pretty hair with texture, matte looks and movement are to be paired with the new season fashion trends for Spring and Summer with soft pastel fabrics mixed with ripped denim and spikes.”
So we might not be seeing the return of the Billy Ray Cyrus do but it still requires a whole lot of bravery to get the chop.
“We are exploring the shapes of the future,” Jenni says.
“Keeping length through the edges with more texture through the top, giving you a look that is high end hair all around the world.”
If this style isn’t quite your thing, but you’re feeling daring, you can try something else.
“We are still seeing the choppy pixie crops - think Katy Perry and Michelle Williams - which still make bold statements to shake up hair fashion,” Jenni reveals.
Now some of you might be thinking, I don’t want to cut my hair.
That thought went through my head. I have been keeping my locks relatively long or trying to grow it longer since I got it cut it in year seven into this weird triangular bob thing – definitely not my finest moment.
I also have wavy hair that needs a little style assistance to be kept in order so the thought of growing out a pixie cut is not bringing on happy thoughts.
So my suggestion is the blunt look - all one length, no layers. It gives it a bit off a cool girl look. It’s very safe I know, but you can add some colour to get out of said safe zone.
Spring and Summer usually means going lighter and there’s a new take on that coming to a salon near you.
“As soon as the temperature starts to rise, so does the blonde bombshell,” Jenni says.
“The exciting new trend is the temporary pastel toner that gives each blonde their own edge. They’re pastel tones in pink, apricot, rose gold, silvers, violets, champagnes and golds.
“These temporary colours make for an exciting change with each appointment, not only making for a fresh new look but adding shine and gloss to each blonde.”
Colour and a cut is just one part of the Summer hair transformation, the other part is keeping your locks looking healthy and moisture is key.
“Adding a leave in conditioner will protect from UV (causes dry, split ends and frizziness) and helps to protect from harsh salt and chlorine when swimming. This is key to good health,” Jenni says.
Jenni recommends miracle hair treatment by Eleven to boost moisture and Evo’s fabuloso conditioner to keep your colour looking vibrant.
"This amazing product is a conditioner that has your specific colour tone added to it," Jenni says.
"Whether you are a pastel tone or a beautiful brunette, this specialised product will keep your colour looking amazing all through the warmer months."
