The world is made up of two kinds of people: those who take risks with their haircuts, and those (like me) who think asking for a small trim and some layers is a walk on the wild side.
When it comes to the less daring among us, a little professional advice wouldn’t go astray. Enter Creative Director for Wella Professionals, Renya Xydis (who’s styled the famous hair of Cate Blanchett and Miranda Kerr) and Joey Scandizzo, ELEVEN Australia co-Creative Director and three-time Hairdresser of the Year.
They share with us what’s going to be big in hair this season and what clients are loving now.
1. Get acquainted with “the shag” haircut.
“People are asking for the shag, they want layering around their face. The shag is coming back in,” explains Xydis. (Take a look at shag hairstyles in the gallery below. Post continues beneath.)
2. Low maintenance hair.
“The main thing everyone is asking for is low maintenance hair that looks effortless, but is still a cool style, lots of texture and movement. I love it – it’s soft and feminine and I love hair that moves and you can play around with,” says Scandizzo.
3. Feathered fringes.
“It’s all about the feathered fringe, fringes are big this season. More people are asking for fringes – not blunt cut fringes, but fringes with more feathering. Clients are also asking for ‘weightless’ hair which focuses on layering again,” explains Xydis.
