Hair Colours & Styles for Autumn/Winter 2015
Ready to add some seasonal trends to your styling routine? We love helping you evolve your look to fit the trends, in salon and at home. For this season, we’ve scoured the Fashion Week catwalks of AW15 for the hottest hair looks. Our Creative Director Kieron Fowles tells you just how you can adapt these couture styles into wearable, easy to achieve looks for you. Get ready to make Autumn/Winter 2015 your most glamorous season yet.
Seen all over the couture catwalks in New York, London, Paris and Milan, natural hair colour continues to rule. That doesn’t mean you have to start growing out the shade nature gave you, however. It’s all about achieving a luxe, uniquely blended colour application, whatever your chosen shade.
Kieron explains, “Balayage remains a popular technique to achieve natural-looking colour placement and low-commitment style. Seen on catwalks like Elie Saab (above), bronde is maintaining popularity and warm, rich red tones are a big trend for the season. Colour-bombing was made popular with pastel shades during spring/summer and is evolving to incorporate more natural shades like golden blondes, mocha browns and reds with plenty of depth. It’s all about creating expensive-looking, natural colours, and there’s a technique to create this look in any palette you choose.”

Got your colour perfected, but want some unique styling tips? The catwalks give us ready-to-wear style in the form of low ponytails for this season.
“All the casual hair-up styles we love are being taken lower on the head for this autumn/winter – ponytails, buns and knots and are being secured at the nape of the neck in contrast to the recent popularity of the top knot look. This works well with sleek or textured finishes and with any parting.”
But if you want to make it absolutely trend-led there’s only one way to wear it – the centre part. This has been the absolutely universal catwalk trend, from updos to flowing locks, it’s all about the middle.
“To get the sleek centre parted look from the fashion shows like Amanda Wakeley (top) and Pucci, prepare hair with serum to hydrate plus a blow dry cream. Blow dry smooth then run over with styling irons, after prepping with a heat protect spray like Designline Hot Stop Style Primer.”
If you love the centre parting, but don’t fancy sleek and smooth locks, go for the texturised and wild look seen at Gaultier, Cavalli (above) and DKNY at New York Fashion Week.
“This style is all about keeping the hair looking natural, tousled, undone. It’s a key trend that’s stayed with us from SS15. Blow dry the hair using a medium barrel brush, bending and twisting it through the lengths and ends to create plenty of body and movement.”
Still not sure how to get it right at home? Visit us in salon and choose our Blow Dry Menu for a super-chic, straight from the catwalk finish.
We can’t finish talking about the hottest looks for the coming season without an honourable mention to our favourite, easy to wear fringe style. The peekaboo fringe, seen on stars like Alexa Chung and Sienna Miller, is the elegant and up to date way to wear a split fringe with style.
“Easy and flattering, ask your stylist to cut in this new fringe with a focus on extending the length as you move out towards the rest of the hair. That allows a gradual blend into the hair. Once it’s perfected by a professional stylist, it’s so easy to blow dry and maintain at home with a simple vented round brush and blow dryer each day.”
