Win­ner of TV’s Great Bri­tish Hair­dresser on the hottest trends

Belfast Telegraph - Weekend - - FASHION / BEAUTY - KerisWeir

With the au­tumn/win­ter sea­son fast ap­proach­ing it’s time to leave be­hind the boho braids and beach waves of the summer months.

De­spite darker evenings ap­proach­ing, the hair colour pal­ette is one which pops with colour, and cool pas­tel shades in par­tic­u­lar are here to stay.

The cat­walks were awash with pretty shades with de­sign­ers, such as Ver­sace and Gucci, ef­fort­lessly com­bin­ing a pop of colour with geek chic styling.

For blondes, tones such as ash pearlised and opal tones are bang on trend for the next few months. Mean­while, beau­ti­ful brunettes should look to mocha and cool cin­na­mon tones to en­hance light and tex­ture. And typ­i­cal red and cop­per are also go-to colour op­tions. My new sea­son colour pre­dic­tion is for a more muted and sub­tle feel to toned down tresses.

RE­HAB TIME

Hair is also prob­a­bly in need of a lit­tle TLC with beach hol­i­days and ex­tra styling tak­ing its toll — the re­sult can be de­hy­dra­tion. Good hair re­hab begins with a cut to snip off any dead ends be­fore giv­ing your hair a mois­ture boost.

One of my favourite hair heal­ers is Olaplex Hair Per­fec­tor No3 which is an amaz­ing re­plen­ish­ing treat­ment; while Aveda Dam­age Rem­edy Treat­ment (right top, £26.55) and Red­ken Ex­treme Strength Builder Plus (right bot­tom, £15.41) are saviours for parched locks plus. The lat­ter are high street buys and wor­thy in­vest­ments to pro­tect your crow­ing glory from the win­ter el­e­ments.

SUB­TLE SHADES

The win­ter months can also prompt a re­think on colour, and of course, it’s al­ways a good idea to sit down with your stylist to dis­cuss your op­tions. Find out what is in­volved and the amount of main­te­nance re­quired when you al­ter your shade. Even the most sub­tle colour change can im­pact on your mood, your make-up and wardrobe so it’s im­por­tant to know how man­age­able it

will be.

SOFT LOCKS

When it comes to trends long locks are still all the rage with a sleek fin­ish. And don’t for­get to in­cor­po­rate heat pro­tect­ing prod­ucts ev­ery time you reach for the styling irons. Ghd is cur­rently evolv­ing their hair tools to be kinder and softer for hair which is great news for fraz­zled manes. My curl­ing tool is al­ways a Babyliss wand which is both easy to use and ef­fec­tive.

STARS SWITCH

Many celebri­ties have switched up their look this sea­son with colour, length and tex­ture all get­ting a makeover. For­merly blonde ac­tress Elle Fan­ning is now a brunette while Halle Berry’s sig­na­ture crop has been re­placed with glossy ex­ten­sions. La La Land ac­tress Emma Stone has also traded in her pretty bob for longer locks with Paris Jack­son and Sarah Hy­land now both brunettes. It’s all about length for su­per­model Gigi Ha­did with her colour­ful ex­ten­sions, while Kate Hud­son can be seen with an ex­treme buzz cut.

What­ever you go for it makes sense to get a pro­fes­sional hair­dresser’s opin­ion. Keris Weir, MG Hair Bou­tique, 153e Union Street, Lur­gan. Tel: 028 3832 5543
