Late Winter Trends
Late Winter Trends
Trends come and go pretty quickly these days. We are inundated with information from Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook and other social media markets. No better time while its still cold out, to start thinking about a new style
So, how do you sift through and take ownership of the most important trends for the season? Morgan & Morgan to the rescue! We’ve done the sifting for you, so here’s what is hot late winter/early spring.
TOP HAIRSTYLE AND HAIRCUT TRENDS
At this time of year, lengths are not being cropped quite as short. Perimeters are staying longer and looser to create a feeling of movement. Take the famous “lob” for an example… This look is still holding strong and the key to owning the look is that perfect lived in texture and grown out perimeter length.
Texture is a major part of achieving that perfect swing. We are not returning to the late ’90s/early 2000′s where everything was shredded to a point of pure wispiness. The texture is focused on the mids and ends of the hair and it’s done in a way to maintain the density on the interior of the shape.
Crop that fringe! Short fringe with vandalized textures are replacing the all popular sweeping fringe as the freshest way to frame your face. How short??? As far as you dare. If a wide shape won’t suit your features, cropping out over one eye and leaving a detached area on the opposite side allows you to have both options. Blow dry so that the short side is exposed gives the look drama but if your feeling like you want to sport a softer look, blow dry the long side across to mask the short area.
Curls, curls, curls. The good news is that perfect curl is out and loose natural movement is in. Focus on haircuts that relieve weight from the sides and leave a little weight in the ends. The weight in the ends will keep your length from shrinking up and releasing the weight from the sides will allow fullness in the round of the head without creating an afro on the top
“Double Identity” is the term we use instead of versatility and your summer look is going to need to have more identities than a con artist! Long hair is great for creating double identity but all of the stress from restyling can take it’s toll on your lovely locks. Keep a regimen of six week trims with your Rapunzels to keep hair perfectly healthy…
We love the change of seasons. It opens up the conversation of “what’s next”?
Double processed blondes are making a comeback.
With lights of palest blonde we then glaze for a perfect platinum, smokey pink, icy blue or dusky lilac. Add the new Fabulosos Pro customizable conditioners to your take-home regime for the perfect timed blonde in between color services. It is our new fave and they flies off the shelf!
Blondes may have more fun however this season smokey and neutral brunettes are sexy.
Soft natural highlights are evident on our beloved celebrities, and Ombre has anchored its way into our color business.
However, all hair color drama lives in the tone and contrast. Tone it down. Instead of 4 levels of contrast, a more natural approach that is no more than two levels lighter.
As colorists, we have the power to start a color movement in our community. Through the power of consultation, and the creative thought processes we can tailor make tasteful colour suggestions suitable to your facial structure and skin tone.
