AW17/18 Hair & Beauty Trends: Dark Wonder & Human Nature

hair and beauty trends

The AW18/19 trends have landed! Prepare for some bold new looks this season.

Our top looks from this season have been inspired by nature. Metallic is trending across hair and makeup, while scorched yellow is seen on nails and hair.

Key colours this season are Gold, Scorched Yellow, Ultraviolet, Red, Black and White.

Our holiday and party season look is inspired by the Dark Wonder trend. Glitter and metallics are applied to eyes, brows and lips for a very glamorous winter look and the skin is illuminated. We see the return of cornrows and braids which continue to be a massive styling trend. Try working through strands of metallic threads through the plaits for an even more textured look.

Glitter has been seen on brows also for AW18/19. This is very much a look that can be adapted to suit your bold clients as well as those looking to try just a little bit of illumination.

  • Using gold thread (Stylist’s own) weave this through selected plaits to create an organic look.

Colour blocking is a new trend in hair colour especially in shades of ultraviolet and red which are perfect for clients who want to experiment with colour without making a commitment to a full colour transformation.

We have paired this with earthy, smoky eyes for an update on the traditional black smoky eyes and matte finished skin. Ombre lips for finish this grungy 90’s look.

Rich hues of yellow offer a brave new colour choice for hair paired with millennial pink lips and dewy skin to create the total look for Autumn. On the eyes a strobing effect is created with eye pencil which is a subtle technique of adding colour to your client’s look.

We think this yellow look works really well with dark roots to create a stylish contrast for your client.
