The forecast for hair fashion this season is mild retro with a chance of 90's influence. Here are our top picks for the hottest hair trends in 2018...
1. Nirvana Blonde
It's 2018 and time to unleash your inner rock chick, shake off your leather jacket, and transform your hair colour with a dash of dirty root smudging paired with dusty blonde mid lengths.
2. Blush Pink
Gone are the baby pink & fluorescent hues of last year and here to stay is the subtle, subdued, and gorgeous blush pink tone of 2018. Pair it with a modern bob shape and you'll be spot on trend this year.
3. Dark Chocolate Brown
Trend setting brunettes know the must have look for 2018 is a deeper, more moody shade of chocolate than last years mauve tones. Try a fresh look in the new year by using a toner colour to transform your hair without the long term commitment.
4. 90's Inspired Long Bob
For style direction in 2018 look to years gone by. Ends are rolled under, or flicked out, and the bob is going to be cut blunter than ever. Try giving your hot irons a break this year & wear your bob hair style brushed out with more volume in the ends to stay on trend.
5. Fringe Society
There's no better time than 2018 to embrace a fringe. Wear it long, choppy, and paired with long layers to stay in line with the latest looks.
6. Go Big (with curls)
If your hair is curly, flaunt it. With a skilled hair cut & careful care at home your curls will be ready stop traffic in 2018 (in a good way!)
7. Awkward Peach
We love this must try hue for 2018. Soft, subtle, and cheeky - This is a versatile colour trend perfect to suit any direction the new year takes you.
8. Boyfriend Pixie
With a long choppy fringe, and a classic, androgynous line, a short boyish pixie hair style remains a strong style trend for 2018.
9. Metallic Blonde
Gone is the dark & muddy ash blonde of last year. 2018 brings with it what we are sure is going to be THE must have shade of blonde for the new season. A striking, high shine, and ultra light silver platinum blonde, this new hue is going to be a game changer.
10. Return of the Scrunchie (the last hair tie)
Just like the recycling of a classic film franchise for a new generation, this polarizing hair accessory is back again for 2018. Wear it fastened with purpose and choose a luxe finish like silk or velvet to stay on trend.
