Jenny Pelter, technical director, Westrow artistic team and franchisee, Westrow Street Lane, reveals her key hair / colour trends for autumn/winter 2016.
Wavy hair was a standout beauty trend at the A/W16 shows. Forget tight ringlets, this trend is about soft, gentle, defined waves, not curlsWater works The trend for wet-look locks is showing no sign of waning. While at the S/S16 shows, models sported slicked-back, overly-glossed hair, that looked fresh from a workout, this season the look is much smarter. Forget sports-luxe, just think luxe.

The trend for ‘bronde’ hair – that universally flattering shade that isn’t quite brunette, but isn’t strictly blonde – has evolved. Models at Joseph, Burberry and Christopher Kane sported uber-natural looking shades of mousey brown. Naturally mousey brown hair is more flattering than most people imagine – your natural shade is often the most flattering against your skin tone and requires minimal make-up – which makes this look very appealing. If the thought of going totally ‘au naturel’ with your hair colour worries you, a touch of toner, or a temporary all-over tint can add depth and gloss to naturally mousey hair. Be sure to stick to one shade all over, to keep the look on-trend.
Last winter, grey hair was the unexpected colour trend, and this year, it’s different variations of white. The colour seen at Sibling’s show was a soft, apricot-tinged white that looked super ethereal and really pretty. At Felder and Felder and Saint Laurent, the look was slightly more mainstream, albeit more high-maintenance.
