With the change of seasons, it’s the perfect opportunity to try something new – and according to HOB Salons Head of Education, Jake Unger, these are three key trends you should be trying now.
Short & Sweet
Style: Flirting with taking the chop? Stand out from the crowd and dare to be different. A style overhaul can be transformative and may lead to the wow factor. This shorter look has a playful femininity, and by introducing length and texture around the perimeter, this pixie cut will allow you to rock the style in a number of ways.
Color: To show off this short and sweet style in all its glory, a rich global base is the perfect foundation. Depending on your skin tone and eye color, work with modern biscuit blonde tones to encapsulate the image of today’s woman.
Straight to the Point
Style: A sophisticated yet effortlessly cool take on the timeless bob, bringing a sense of glamour to an everyday, wearable hairstyle. This season’s bob is one length, jaw-skimming, center-parted, and sleek with a mirror-like finish. The ultimate power look, this cut is the difference between an average bob and a wow bob. The difference is vast yet subtle.
Color: Creating a glass-like finish to enhance the sharpness of this fierce style can be achieved with a gloss color or root touch-up. By adding a highlighting service that includes glossy golden and oatmeal tones, you can add depth and dimension to your color, resulting in the perfect hue to complement your bob.
Style: This trend is all about texture, texture, and more texture. Embrace your natural curls and texture with this modern, shaggy style. Paving the way with undone, razored layers, models Mica Arganenz and Freja Beha Ericcson embrace their inner rock chicks while oozing sex appeal.
Color: Brunettes are no longer one-dimensional but are enriched with glossy caramel hues and deep saturated tones. Luxe Lights is the go-to technique as it creates a beautiful, soft combination of root tint and T-section highlights, personalized to your cut, skin tone, and eye color.
