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.

Looking at how celebrities are wearing their hair during award season this year, (a lot of twisted and creative buns) which guarantees the style to stay that way throughout the night. I noticed how stunning the blonde tones were.

Rosamund Pikes Blonde highlights

Rosamund Pikes finely weaved warm and ash blonde highlights adding dimension to the simple shoulder length bob – GORGEOUS!

 

 

Rosie Huntington Whiteley Blonde hair styles

Rosie Huntington Whiteleys rich gold balyage blending seamlessly from her light warm ash roots. Again two counteracted tones mixed together to create a soft light brown that compliments her skin tone beautifully.

 

 

Julianne-Hough twisted blonde bun

Julianne Houghs twisted blonde bun ticked all the boxes. Rose gold alternating with sandy blonde on top of a dark blonde base. The twist not only enhanced the colour but it gave her height.

 

Saoirse Ronan blonde golden globes

Saoirse Ronans light ash soft highlights blending into her golden ends.

Not a blonde but equally a stunning colour was :

 

Zendaya Golden Globes - beautiful blondes

Zendayas Mochal flashed highlights breaks up her rich and glossy chocolate base. The foils were woven thickly so that when her hair is being worn naturally wavy they create dimension amongst her curl.

 

These latest predictions are bold and fun. If you’re not game, I recommend introducing any of these tones in a subtle way. If you’re feeling for a change then these colours will certainly turn heads!

  1. Consultation is the key. Play with hair colour swatches near your face to get an idea what tone of brunette would suit your skin and eye colour.
  2. Indulge in a weekly moisturising mask. Shiny brunettes look great if your hair is healthy and nourished.
  3. To disguise any roots and to keep your colour looking fresh, make sure you get hair coloured every 6-8 weeks.
  4. Experiment with different tones, add a bold surface colour with a different shade around the face to create more depth. Adding warmer highlights will bring out new dimensions in brunettes.
  5. Going from blonde to brunette can completely change your look and you will need to adapt your make-up to suit. Dark hair makes your features more shadowy so your eyes will require extra definition.
  6. Never go more than two shades darker than your natural colour to keep it looking natural.
  7. Semi- permanents are the best colours designed when achieving darker shades. These colours gradually fade and contribute to a shiny finish, which will add a great focal point.
  8. Balancing cool undertones in your complexion try warm hues like chestnut brown, auburn and cinnamon. Ebony brown, mocha and violet based colours will enhance the natural warmth of your skin.
  9. Deep dark tones of espresso and inky black look striking next to blue based complexions. Warm hits of wine illuminate but don’t overwhelm deep natural browns.
  10. Shampoo and conditioner formulated for brunettes bring out the best in your colour. Avoid the awkward greys showing with Roux colour crayons. This root blending product is great because it temporarily covers roots until your next colour visit.

Some popular trend colours are :

  • Dark Chocolate
  • Mulberry Wine
  • Burnt Toffee
