We're always interested to see what is happening across the pond in London.  According to British Salon Group HOB Salons Head of Education, Jake Unger, these are three key trends salon clients are asking for right 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, but often leads to the Wow factor! This shorter look has a playful femininity and by introducing length and texture around the perimeter, this version of a pixie cut will allow you to rock this 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 the modern 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 part, sleek, and with a mirror finish. This cut is the ultimate power dressing look, and the difference between an average bob and a WOW bob is vast, yet subtle. It’s like a Hermes bag versus a Zara bag; both may be leather with a similar handle, but the Hermes bag sets the trend, and the quality is undeniable.

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.

Texture, Texture

Style: This trend is all about texture, texture, and more texture. This season is about flaunting what God gave you. 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 chick, while oozing sex appeal.

Color: Brunettes are no longer one dimensional but are enriched with glossy caramel hues and deep saturated tones.
