Autumn is quickly approaching and with this in mind, it’s the perfect time to get our hair ‘autumn/winter-ready’ by opting for one of the seasons most on trend hair cuts or going for a new hair colour that, like the autumn leaves, complements the change in seasons…

Dare to be bold and bright this autumn/winter, hair colour is about to go crazy…lemoncello and 80s inspired neon colour is about to rock your world! Paris Fall Fashion Week 2017 saw models with bold hair colours or with coloured hair extensions, which brought their outfits to life. These bold explosions of colour are great for those who are experimental. Lemoncello and neon green are two of my favourite shades for the season; however, bare in mind these shades are not for the faint hearted!
Model Miss Georgia May Jagger may just be responsible for the latest hair craze that everyone is talking about…BLORANGE. Georgia showed off her new look on Instagram in October of last year and it’s taken nearly 7 months for the trend to finally become huge. No, it does not stand for blonde/orange, which some people have mistakenly thought. Instead, blorange stands for blood orange – the perfect combination of orange, blonde and pink tones that make for a unique strawberry blonde look. This craze can be worn by anyone as it suits every skin tone with the use of clever colour placement around the face from stylists – warmer skin tones need more peachy or warm blonde tones around the hairline, where as cooler skin tone need to embrace more of the rose/blush tone to emphasise their features.

Hairstyles and cuts
There were so many different looks seen at the New York, London and Paris autumn/winter catwalks. Effortless hairstyles were one of the most on trend looks seen on the catwalks. Think loose, soft waves and bedhead hair for this look that require little to no styling. Side partings were another on trend hairstyle. Whether you wear your hair in gorgeous waves, big bouncy curls or poker straight, a side parting looks great and will instantly update the style. Ponytails also remain popular for the AW months and there are styles to suit everyone. Team your ponytail with a texture to make it look effortless or go for a super sleek ponytail style to give a chic statement. Accessorise your pony with a ribbon or scrunchy for extra glamour! Finally, sleek styles remain popular for AW17. Ensure your locks are oozing with health and shine for this look. For a statement going out look, add a strong gel and use it to gel all the hair off the face or sleek one side behind the ear. This look works best when it looks super shiny, so once the gel is dried, spray on a gloss spray to make it look mirror like.
Ultra long hair, which can be used by wearing extensions, remains popular for the AW months. However, shorter styles such as the shag and the blunt bob are styles that are said to be the most on trend haircuts for the colder months. The shag should hit just past the shoulders and looks even better when teamed up with layers and bangs. If you’re thinking of opting for a bob, think blunt and sharp and the more angular, the better! This look is stunning and is a great style to go for to get rid of split ends caused by the summer months.
