As we move towards the new season, many women will be considering changing their look.
More often than not, this means a new haircut or colour – which can be tricky to decide on.
If you’re in the market for a refresh, leading celebrity hairdresser, Anthony Nader, has shared what is in and out for the new season.
From the ‘It colour’ to the latest cut, here FEMAIL takes a look at what you need to be trying and avoiding.
IN – BANGS
According to Anthony, if you’ve been deliberating about getting some sort of fringe, now is the time to take the plunge.
‘Stars including Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez and Emma Watson have revived the trend for bangs, showing us that they can be super cute and just a little bit sexy,’ he told FEMAIL.
‘More and more of my clients are asking for bangs and I’m all for giving them a new look they might love.’
The hairdresser – who has looked after the likes of Cate Blanchett’s locks – added that bangs can ‘suit everyone’.
‘It just depends on how boldly you want to showcase them,’ he added.
OUT – ANYTHING VOLUMINOUS
While the celebrities of yesteryear were all about big, voluminous hair, Anthony revealed this is something you’ll want to stay away from this season:
‘Any hairstyle that looks artificially too voluminous and Sixties is on the way out,’ he explained.
‘Your hairstyle can’t and shouldn’t look stiff.’
IN – JAWLINE BOBS
Again, you can thank the likes of Taylor Swift for the resurgence of the jawline bob, which Anthony said is firmly in vogue.
‘The shorter, the better right now – this new length showcases confidence and power,’ he said.
The hairdresser added that while you might not think it, this style is actually easy to look after.
OUT – BED HAIR
‘The slept on bed hair look is firmly on the way out,’ Anthony said.
Instead, a more polished blow dry is what the majority of his clients are asking for, with bespoke products tailored towards their specific hair needs.]
IN – COLD BREW COFFEE COLOUR
So far this year we’ve already had rose gold hair and rose brown hair. But now, there is a new hue set to knock these off their perch.
Cold brew hair is the latest trend to know – it’s a stunning coffee brown hue with hints of warm copper, as if you’ve swirled a spoon around a freshly-brewed cup of coffee.
‘If you are already brunette, this is a great shade to try,’ Anthony explained. ‘Just ask your hairdresser for the cold brew look and expect swirls of browns, deep caramels and a touch of mahogany.’
Exemplars of the trend include Pia Miller, whose tresses are already the envy of women the country over.
IN – BLONDE LIGHTENING
Colour-wise, Anthony also said that flashes of ‘bold lightness framing your face’ will also be big this season.
‘Think balayage, but bolder and more block-y in colour, so that you see thick ribbons of blonde highlighting.’
Again, the stylist said this colour works with many people – but make sure you get a tone that fits well with your complexion.
GOING NOWHERE – BALAYAGE
Last but not least, Anthony said that if you’re worried that your balayage colour dating, then fear not.
The It colour is going nowhere.
‘Australia is all about this French colouring technique,’ he said. ‘And we continue to be in love with the look.’
The hairdresser said if you’re looking to get beautifully executed balayage, then it ‘should look natural and sunkissed, rather than a Cadbury’s Top Deck chocolate bar’.
‘I don’t think balayage will ever be knocked off its perch as it perennially looks stylish,’ Anthony concluded.
