New year, new hair.
If you are ready to throw yourself headfirst into 2022 and embrace all the fun and new things, you might be looking to upgrade your hairstyle for the new year too?
For a few years now, darker blondes and 'brondes' have dominated the style charts, but according to hair stylists, this might just be about to change.
According to Stylist, 'fluffy hair' is the 90s blonde trend that is about to go viral this year.
“Gen Zs are calling Adele's blonde blow-dry style the ‘fluffy hair trend’ and it’ll be even bigger in 2022," says celebrity hairstylist Tom Smith to Stylist.
"The 90s layers are all about bounce and volume and are great for longer and thicker hair, providing fluffy, effortlessly glamour. It’s all about cushioned and airy volume with a soft, blended contrast. The fluffier the better. Use your product to smooth and lift, not to weigh down."
What to ask for at the hairdressers
If this sounds like something you would like to try the next time you go see your hairdressers, you might be wondering what exactly to ask for.
“The colour you ask your hairdresser for is ‘Nectar Blonde’ which looks luxurious, golden and warm," Smith explains.
"It’s a cosy and comforting shade that looks expensive and rich. Bright and soft contrast highlights frame the face, giving depth to the style."
“The key here is to lighten the hair’s base colour to a dark golden blonde, adding warm vanilla cream highlights through the layers and to the face frame area. Ask your hairstylist for a beige or golden-blonde base colour with chunkier, hand-painted highlights around the frame of your face. Use Evo Fabuloso Beige as a five-minute conditioning toner when you feel your colour has begun to fade. This colour works best for those with medium to fair natural hair, as very dark bases tend to have more orange undertones to fight against.”
