It’s no doubt that along with the new year we can expect to see a wide array of new and popular hair colours and styles. From the wild styles that celebrities rock on the red carpet,  to the most subtle effects you can wear to work, you can find a new look perfect for you.

Whether it’s eclipting, balayage, or ecaille, 2017 has some cool colours in store.

Eclipting - Think of eclipting as countering for your hair. With this technique, the hair around your face is coloured darker than the rest, which ultimately makes your cheeks look slimmer. In order for this technique to work, you need an experienced stylist. When done correctly, this technique can dramatically change the appearance of your face.

Tiger Eye Bronde – One of the hottest colours for 2017 will be Tigereye a blonde colour that incorporates honey, amber and soft brown highlights, painted on with the balayage technique. The popular hair colour started flooding Instagram in late 2016 and can be seen on celebrities like Jessica Alba and Jennifer Lopez. What’s great about this warm caramel colour for brunettes? It grows out seamlessly so you don’t have to worry about roots.

Pastel - Pastel hair colours, like a peach, lavender, baby blonde and soft rainbow colours continue to be popular for those looking to fit outside the box. These colours give you a soft, cute look with just a hint of whimsy. They’re also extremely versatile. For instance, pastels can be combined with complementary highlights to create a wide range of stunning looks. Brunettes who don’t want to bleach their hair first should look to another popular hair colour, chocolate mauve which incorporates lavender highlights into a chocolate base.

Jewel tones - As popular as light colours are shaping up to be, dark colours are making their way into the spotlight too. A dark midnight blue or dark teal gives off a cool bad girl vibe. Dark colours also look flattering on most skin tones, so anyone can rock this look.

We all know slathering on sunscreen before a beach run is a no-brainer – but what about sun protection for your hair? If you’re not wearing a hat, then yep, your strands need UV protection says Sydney trichologist David Salinger.”UV light does two bad things. It breaks some of the bonds in the hair which can weaken it, and lead to breakage. Secondly it oxidises the pigment in the hair making it lighter in colour”.

Start your damage control now by using UV technology haircare, these products work by absorbing the UV rays and preventing them from penetrating your precious strands.

As the weather warms up, our hair becomes more vulnerable to the sun’s harmful rays. It’s all about maintaining strong follicles from the inside out, with a good shampoo and conditioner and also I suggest using a treatment two to three times a week for extra hydration to maintain healthy hair. Use the treatment after shampooing, there’s no need to condition as well, and blondes, listen up – your crowning glory needs even more shielding in the hotter months as honey shades become brassy as the colour fades. I recommend a hair toner, products specifically for coloured hair like violet based shampoo and conditioner which enhances lightened hair and stops yellowness. You can get a toner treatment in the salon which lasts up to 24 washes.

Secret hair tips from George1. Hair masks need heat. Apply one and leave it on in the bath. If you have really damaged hair, the longer you leave it on the better. Wrap cling wrap around it and sit in the sun – the heat helps activate it. Check the the treatment story – Top 4 Treatments

2. Go easy on the straighteners. People make the mistake rough drying their hair and then pull the straighteners through. The secret is to blow dry your hair (even if you’re curling it) as well as you possibly can first. Then pop your straightener on it. They’re there to aid you – not to be relied on.

Straightened Hair tips

3. Use a shine serum. The secret is to rub it into your hands, like hand cream, and almost get rid of it – then apply. Less is always more, you can always go back and reapply, but too much will appear greasy.

4. Special occasion? You need to cut it three weeks before the event and colour it two weeks before. Allow time to tweak or fix if necessary!


Hair tips


5. Colouring – A general guide. The lighter your complexion, the lighter your hair colour should be. The more olive your complexion, the darker your hair colour should be. The more ash your complexion, the more warmth your hair colour needs. The more warmth in your complexion, the more ash your hair needs to be.

6. When should you use your frizz fighting products? Always on damp hair, before blow drying. The ingredients absorb far better into the wet strands than when they are applied on dry hair.

7. Always use a wide-tooth comb on wet hair. If you cheat and use a fine-tooth comb or a brush, it can stretch, and even snap the hair strand.

8. The golden rule is, less is more. Never overload your hair with product, as it will only weigh down strands.

Winter Hair

Snip Secrets

The problem : You’re trying to grow out your summer crop, but it looks thin and stringy rather than long and luscious.

The remedy : Cutting isn’t going to change the actual condition of your hair, regular snips will perk up the overall look and shape of your grown out style. Hairdressers unanimously agree on visiting the salon approximately every 6-8 weeks for medium to long hair, and every 4 weeks for shorter styles.

Sort Split Ends

The problem : Indoor heating has left your hair dry and prone to breakage.

The remedy : Dehydrated and brittle strands are generally a result of both environmental (a drop in temperature outside) and physical factors (the overuse of colour and bleach, or heated styling), which weaken your hair cuticle causing split ends and snapping. To prepare your stands for the cold, care for them at home with the right cleansing regime : shampoo, conditioner and a weekly treatment.


Winter Hair


Boost Body

The problem : The chill has left you feeling flat, but you don’t want your hair to look that way.

The remedy : To get the volume you want, its important to concur your strands while they’re wet. I suggest starting with a light weight volume building shampoo and conditioner. Fine hair tends to hold more moisture, so go easy on styling products. Steering clear of heavy serums (which rob your strands of body), and choosing light-hold mousses and mists instead. For weightless volume on the go, dry shampoo is essential for adding texture, grip and bulk to slippery fine hair.

Fight Frizz

The problem : Your winter woollens leave your wavy hair a static mess.

The remedy : The best way to control frizz is to use a hydrating shampoo, conditioner and weekly mask. This doesn’t mean you should drown them in rich conditioners and styling products – as these will weigh down your lengths. For the ultimate taming tool you can’t go past serums, which eliminate frizz, repel humidity and seals the hair’s cuticle to smooth waves for a glossy, frizz-free style. Try to avoid contact with coarse scarves, sweaters and coats which can contribute to fuzziness.

The 1990s inspired wet look is fast becoming one of the most up to the minute ways to wear your hair.

Not every hair texture and cut can pull it off – those with a fine to medium hair and a high fade or an undercut are in a prime position to nail the style.

Slicking your hair straight back without a part is a good look, but it can feel a little severe. A side part can soften things up a bit. Make sure the neck is clean shaven and be mindful if you have longer hair as it can appear mullet-y. This style works well on a fresh haircut.


Slick hairstyle trends


  • How to styleThe right product is important
  • Pomades – Keeping the hair shiny and in place (Oil and water based product which will give you more shine)
  • Waxes – Allow you to have control over your style with minimal effort, and because of its matte finish it will leave your hair with a natural appearance.
  • Application – On damp hair distribute the product evenly right through to the back hairline.
    For a Don Draper from Mad Men look a comb is necessary to part and direct the hair to the side. A backhand mirror also helps to evenly slick the hair especially around the crown area where it is difficult to see.
    Alternatively rub the product in your palms and spread it back away from your face for a more casual look.
  • The secret – The key to keeping it looking fresh all day is to not touch it or fiddle as it will separate the slick.
