Our top 5 Hair Trends for Spring 2018
Here a rundown of some of Barbarella's favourite trends for Spring 2018.
1. Coffee balayage
There's a new balayage in town and we're loving the concept! Coffee balayage mimics the usual technique but using coffee colours from the dark espresso to the soft latte shades.
2. Fruit Juice Hair
Another trend that will have brunettes jumping for joy, the latest colour style dubbed 'fruit juice hair' is total hair goals. Coined by hair guru Alisha McAlister, she explained: "I’m not sure what to call this! It’s a mix of blended fruit colours. I started this hair colour thinking I was doing a simple base and tone. Then my amazing client surprised me! She said, “I want something different!” So yay for stylist choice night!". We think it'll be a big hit this summer.
3. Rose Brown
Finally! A pastel trend that brunettes can get involved with! The rose gold trend isn't done just yet, as rose brown is gaining traction on Instagram. Instead of having to dye your hair bright blonde to achieve the look, this works with darker hair colours. Created by hairstylist Thi Thao Tu, it's done by using a combination of bleach, Olaplex treatment, and brown and red dyes. We're SO into this!
4. Oversized braids
We're almost at the end of fashion month, and it's fair to say that this season hair was kept simple on the catwalks - we've seen a lot of side partings, tousled waves and low ponys. But at the Simone Rocha show oversized braids took centre stage, tied with a black velvet ribbon, the romantic 'do is perfect for the colder months.
5. Ghosted hair
This gorgeous look has nothing to do with the dating term, but rather what's hiding in the shadows of the gorgeous hue. Why's it different from platinum or silver? It's the addition of carbon, quartz and oyster white that you don't see at first glance. First crafted by Jason Hogan of Josh Wood Atelier, it's definitely going to be a biggie this year.
