In fact, you probably asked for it at your last hairdresser’s appointment.
But after its hair monopoly over the last few years, one hairdresser has admitted he’s sick of the ombre beach waves everyone all over the world is loving.
“I’m getting a little bit sick of the wavy beach hair…I’ve always loved that beachy look but I’m sick of seeing it and I’m sick of doing it in the salon,” Priceline Hair Director Kenneth Stoddart told Mamamia backstage at VAMFF last week.
“It’s been around a long time now and that whole ombre, balayage thing… in top salons they’re taking it to the next level and bringing in baby lights and foils, keeping it light on the end but bringing in finer light parts closer to the part line. So it is developing in the industry and that will filter down.”
He said as a result of social media, it was a look everyone around the world was requesting.
“Every client wants the same look, doesn’t matter where you are in the world. Beachy wave with dark roots and light ends. C’mon… there’s something new happening!”
Obviously there’s a reason for this – it’s that perfectly effortless, undone look that is often low-maintenance, AKA hair heaven.
