2020 is primed to be an amazing year in the world of hair at Eden Hair Energy with many exciting new developments which we look forward to sharing with you soon. We’re also super excited to see what hair trends arise throughout the year.
If you remember last year’s forecast, we predicted a lot of retro styling and more lived-in colouring. This year will continue along the same theme even more so. The 70s, 80s and even the 90s get a solid look-in on the trends.
Colour Trends for2020
Right off the bat, this one goes against the natural and lived-in trend however there’s always the token rebel out there! This year’s Pantone colour of the year is Classic Blue and we foresee it being a big trend in hair colouring too. We’ve seen a few of our clients already request bright blues and purples, whether it’s an all-over bold colour or just a ‘peekaboo’ effect with pops of colour dispersed through natural colouring. There are many ways to incorporate colour into your world!
Root Shadowed Blondes
‘Lived-in’ along with ‘future-proof’ are THE buzzwords for hairdressers everywhere right now. But how do you get this look, we hear you ask!
There are a variety of different techniques our stylists use including freehand highlights and ‘root shadowing’ where they blend a darker toner/semi-permanent colour from your roots into your foiled or freehand highlighted hair creating less need for maintenance as it should blend in closer to your natural colour leaving you with less obvious regrowth. This gives you a few cheeky extra weeks before you feel your colour needs to be refreshed.
Natural Appearing Red
Everyone loves a good red! The stigma of being a ‘ranga’ has certainly subsided (or at least in my circles) and we’re seeing more of our guests embracing red and copper tones. 2020 will see a more toned-down version of red, so less bright and copper leaving us with a more ‘natural’ appearing red.
Sounds interesting, doesn’t it? Honestly it gives me Edward Cullen vibes, but this is actually a colouring technique stylists use inspired by golden hues swirled through the sky at sunset. It’s a mix of baby-light foils and freehand highlights, mostly for our brunette ladies wanting a dimensional look. Think Jennifer Garner and Miranda Kerr for inspiration.
This one takes me back to the 90s, if only I knew then what I know now. Jet black looks best on super sleek and healthy hair so it’s important to look after your locks. If you’re naturally black you can also come in and get a ‘gloss’ (toner) put through to make your hair shine. Think Kim Kardashian’s sleek and shiny mane. (OK, we all know that’s a wig but we can do our best!)
Healthy, shiny and well-treated hair
Hair Cut Trends for 2020
The ‘Shag’ Haircut
Curtain Fringe / Long Fringe
The opposite end of the spectrum to the pixie cut but growing in popularity are hair extensions. Hugely popular in Hollywood and on the red carpets, we’re now noticing a lot of our clients are also wanting to look fabulous with long flowing locks.
Extensions aren’t as difficult as you may have thought. If you’ve been considering extensions but not sure where to start, book in for a free consultation with one of our stylists. They’ll explain what you can expect, home care and provide you with a quote. We also have detailed information on our website.
Styling Trends for 2020
Pearls and Crystals
Natural texture is all about embracing what you have. Hair varies enormously from person to person and so does the best option for care and styling.
If you’ve got fine hair, try a lighter shampoo and conditioner. Think Kevin.Murphy Angel range or the DeLorenzo Accentu8 range. Better yet, try Kevin.Murphy’s Plumping range for a bit of a boost.
Those in the curly hair club need to ensure they’re keeping their hair hydrated. DeLorenzo Rejuven8 or Kevin.Murphy Hydrate range are great options. You could also try an anti-frizz or curl defining styling product.
When you’re next in the salon, ask your stylist how you might be able to get the most of your hair.
Who would have thought? The good ole’ 80s hair comb is back. Embrace the classic look or go for something that makes more of a statement with embellishments.
The best way to wear is to deep part your hair and slide your comb in above your ear. Style your hair naturally or curled for an effortlessly chic look.
