Madison Stubbington for Gucci Cruise 2016

Red Romance

Red has been a popular shade for a few seasons now and it’s only going to get bigger for 2016. Think more ethereal and mystical than bold and bright to perfect this style. Look to the likes of Florence Welch and model Madison Stubbington for inspiration. Keep the style relaxed and tousled to complete spring/summers Romantic trend to perfection.

Kendall Jenner for Michael Kors, New York SS16

Rich Chocolate

Brown is anything but boring this year with luscious brunette locks dominating the fashion week shows at the likes of Felder & Felder, Erdem and Cushnie et Ochs. We think Kendall Jenner’s glossy yet effortlessly natural hue has been a key driving force for darker hair colour. Think about shades that will complement your skin tone – going too dark will leave you looking washed out.

Cristiano Burani Milan SS16


We’ve already declared our undying love for bronde hair and thankfully this trend is continuing to dominate. We saw it everywhere on the spring/summer runways, from Burberry Prorsum in London to Cristiano Burani in Milan. The best thing about this not-quite blonde/ not-quite-brown trend? It’s such a low commitment colour! A balayage technique will seamlessly blend your natural colour with lighter tones for a beautifully sun-kissed finish.

Cristiano Burani Milan SS16

Candy Pop 

Super soft, muted pinks have emerged from the surge in popularity for pretty pastel hair colours in 2015. Think light flashes of pale pink rather than anything fluorescent (to avoid resembling a text book highlighter!) A dusting of pink on the ends or subtly placed around the face offers a subtle finish that’s more office appropriate than all over colour. Try out the trend with our semi-permanent pastel colour in Pink Dream.

Colour Mesh

But if subtle’s not your style, there’s no other way to go than the colour mesh tribe! Emerging from spring/summers Maximalist (more is more) trend, vibrant pops of multi-coloured hues stood out on the Yohji Yamamoto, Vivienne Westwood and Haider Ackermann catwalks. This look is probably best achieved with hair pieces. Team it with a choppy cut and plenty of crimping and backcombing for to nail the trend.
