LOOKING AHEAD TO THE NEW SEASON
Ivy-Louise Ketteringham, stylist at John Olivers Elm Hill in Norwich and Tiggy Elsden-Powell of John Olivers Red Lion Street give us the heads up on SS17’s hottest hair trends
Hair trends for 2017 are softer and more natural than those of last year. Multi-tonal blondes are still on trend, but it is the brunette that is making its comeback. With L’Oreal Professional’s French Brunette colour range you can achieve a sophisticated, polished and luxurious looking hair colour which will upgrade your brunette in a way that is unique to you. Add ‘babylights’ to your colour to create a subtle sun-kissed look, or if highlights aren’t for you, try a tricolore service which blends three brunette shades together and will give you a seamless blend of natural looking colour.
John Olivers now offers L’Oreal’s Smartbond Service, a treatment that keeps your hair radiant for longer and is essential for keeping hair shinier, softer and stronger. The treatment is mixed with your colour to protect your hair during your service and is perfect if you are going through a major colour transformation or are adding lighter pieces and want to protect your hair. Speak to your stylist to see if this would be suitable for you. A skin test is required 48 hours prior to any colour service.
Hair cuts this season are all about visual texture. Your style should enhance any natural movement that you have, or for those with straighter hair your cut should show off your sleek and shiny tresses. If you are in need of a low maintenance style and want to try something different then opt for the shag cut - a mid-length style that is heavily layered to create softness. Pair with a long, feathered fringe if you have sharp features or a blunt fringe if you have a rounder face shape. Style with Kerastase Spray A Porter to give a tousled beach dry finish.
