EASY HAIR UPDATES
Give your locks a trendy makeover!
Itching to freshen up your strands? For inspo, we turned to experts Anthony Nader, owner, and hairstylist at RAW Salon in Sydney, and Sangeetha Smith, fragrance, hair, and body education lead at Mecca, to find out what’s currently trending in the world of hair care.
Layers are a trend that’ll never go out of fashion. The style boosts vibrancy to your strands by removing any weight that may be dragging down your look. Layers not only create shape to your ‘do, but add volume and texture. “Layers help with face-framing for both long and short hairstyles,” says Smith. If you’re looking for inspiration in 2023, look no further than Jennifer Lopez with her long layers or Rachel Green-inspired short layers like Emma Chamberlain.
With the ’80s and ’90s beauty trends resurfacing, claw clips are making a huge comeback, which is a dream for our hair health, too. “The once-dated claw clip made a cool runway comeback, with the likes of the Hadid sisters, Kaia Gerber, and the Kardashians papped in them,” says Nader. With chic clips available in every shape, size, and colour, it’s a trend almost everyone can get on board with and an easy one, too!
It’s the lower maintenance cousin of a full-on Scandi blonde look. A blend of both blonde and brunette, bronde is a happy middle ground between these two tones. Involving a combination of balayage and natural highlights, the shade is perfect for a low-maintenance girl who doesn’t want to commit to her weekly salon appointments.
Hailey Bieber made the hue her signature in 2022, and we’re expecting it to be everywhere in the year ahead. “Think of our finest Aussie example, Margot Robbie,” Nader says. “Her natural brunette root is blended into the grown-out blonde using a natural balayage technique.”
