Top 3 Winter Hair Trends

July 31, 2012

The team from celebrity hairdresser Barney Martin Hairdressing share their top 3 favourite winter hair trends for cut, style and colour.

Shukeel Murtaza, Artistic Director – Cut:

To add an edge to your winter style, ask for the fringe benefits.
According to Shak, bangs are back and winter is the best time for
them. Nicole Richie and Kim Kardashian have both already taken the
plunge. For a blunt heavy fringe use high quality hairdressing scissors or
if you are after a slight bevel on the ends use a razor. Either way a
fringe is the perfect way to spice up your winter hair style and it’s
incredibly easy to style on those cold winter mornings.”

James Pearce, Editorial Stylist – Style:

Winter is the time for finding quick and easy styles that keep your hair
wrapped up and out of the harsh winter elements like wind and rain.
Twisted buns and braids are perfect to keep hair in place, even on the
coldest of winter days. They are even great for disguising those all day
leave in treatments. Short hair styles and crops are also all the craze
this winter, not only are they easy to look after in the wet and cold
weather but what better time chop those split ends ready to grow for
the hotter summer season.

Kathrin Manger, Senior Stylist – Colour:

Warm up your winter with golden brunettes. Rich, glossy and warm
colours are definitely in this season, with harsh blondes being saved for
summer. Balayage is still a top trend but with richer and deeper hues, while the
distressed look is well and truly out – the colder weather calls for
warmer shades. Soft foils and soft blondes through the roots are
perfect to keep up with the winter trends. Don’t forget this season is
about natural, glossy and healthy hair. Keep it rich and real!
