AW17 Hair trends of the season

From the geometric bob and platinum icy blondes to laidback waves and super sleek styles, the hairs trends of the 2017 AW season are getting us excited. We spoke to the experts in the industry to find out exactly what we can expect this coming season.

“One hair trend that’s becoming more and more popular in the UK and that I predict will be huge globally too, is the geometric bob. This is a statement hairstyle and looks best when it’s all one-length, preferably chin-length, and is worn straight with a blunt fringe. If you have a wider face shape, this look is best worn a bit longer, for example an inch below the jawline. However, if you have a more slender face shape, this look works best when it hits the jawline or to create a quirkier look, it can be taken a bit higher.”

“Platinum and icy blondes remain popular through the autumn/winter months. If you’re looking for that snow queen vibe, opt for a more silver blonde hair shade. One of the most on trend hair shades for AW17 is to be bronde, where blonde and brunette meet in the middle, perfect for those who want a more natural hair colour. Hairstyles for AW17 will be effortless and require minimal styling. One of my favourite hairstyles for the season is the shag. The shag requires minimal styling and looks especially great on those with shorter, curly or wavy hair. I like to use a mousse or texturising spray on damp hair, scrunch and leave to air dry to give this look more of an edge. It also looks great with a soft fringe.”

“Texture is set to be big for Autumn/Winter whether hair is backcombed or braided, there is a look to suit everyone. Super sleek hair with a deep side parting is the ultimate glamorous, effortless look, which I predict will be another hot trend this AW. Having hair parted low on one side with an ultra-sleek poker straight style will be sure to match any outfit and can look girly when hair is kept dry or can be toughened up with a wet-look product. Ponytails are another trend to be big for the season and there are styles to suit everyone. Whether you team your ponytail with a texture to make it look effortless or go for a sleeker look, this style looks chic and for added glamour, you can add a hair accessory to complete the look.”

“Laid back waves, this seasons most sought after hair style. A quick and easy look to recreate – perfect for those lazy mornings and on-trend looks. Seen on the catwalks at Fendi, Isabel Marant, Chloé and Alexander Wang. Simply use straighteners to add a smooth bend to sections of the hair, add some texturising spray and finish with a mist of shine spray.”

“For AW17 ice white, grey and silver tones that have been popular in previous years, will remain popular. This look is best created in the salon as bleach and peroxide can be damaging on the hair if not used by a professional. Using a product like Schwarzkopf Professionals Fibreplex can protect hair from damage during the lightening process, enabling the hair to go lighter but still be strong and full of shine. A toner can then be used after the hair is bleached to give it the icy effect. Another trend that has bloomed and will remain popular is pastels and in particular the blorange trend. Inspired by blood orange, this look is stunning and suits all skin tones.”

“Super straight sleek hair has been popular for a number of seasons now but autumn winter 2017 sees this look come back through with a fresh new look. The key to this look is achieving that mirror like shine and keeping your hair blunt at the ends. Your haircut can have an impact on this look as straight across scissoring tends to look best as the blunt finish on the ends of your hair will complement the sleek look. Keep your hair hydrated with regular hair masks and use an oil or serum to smooth over after styling. Hold your hair in place behind your ears and wear it pushed back off your shoulders for a sophisticated edge.”
