The new year is the perfect time for a new look, why not try a brand new hair colour to see you through the season. Whether you’re leaning towards a blonde balayage, a deep dark brunette or having a go at red hair our Birmingham hairdressers show us there top colour trends for 2020.

Silver blonde

It’s a new year and silver hair is still here to stay however, if your not down to go completely silver in 2020 then don’t worry as silver undertones are going to be super popular in the new year. In order to achieve the beautiful silver shade then hair must be lifted to the lightest shade of blonde first. In order to do this safely this should be done in stages, this may require several visits to the salon and patience as this can be a long process depending on your current hair colour. Our expert colour technicians will discuss the process with you in depth at your consultation. Our Birmingham hairdressers will recommend a bespoke treatment and homecare that can be added to your colour in order to maintain the health of your hair. These treatments include;

Olaplex – Olaplex reconstructs the broken bonds in your hair which may have been caused by colour, heat damage and environmental damage. It can also be added to your colour service to provide the ultimate breakage insurance.

Smartbond – Smartbond is a unique system that protects and strengthens the hair during the colour process.

Fusio – Fusio’s offer multiple combinations for a custom-designed treatment to instantly transform the hair.

Caramel highlights

Brighten up your brunette with some caramel highlights they add definition to layers and curls and add soft warmth to your look. With caramel highlight there is plenty of variations to choose from, you can go dark and rich or opt for a lighter or multi tonal look! These highlights can be concentrated around your face or go all the way through your hair. Straight or wavy this colour is one that suits all hair types, if you’re a client who is looking for a change but doesn’t want anything to drastic then this is the way forward.

Shadow roots

If you prefer letting your roots grow out then a root shadow may be the perfect colour option for you. This hair colour trend is here to stay for 2020, shadow roots is when you colour your roots a darker colour to the rest of your hair creating a shadow contrast. The shadow root technique lies when the hair is coloured darker at the roots but without the sharp contrast. Our Birmingham colour technicians create this by stretching the root colour down blending it seamlessly through the hair. A root shadow makes the hair colour appear more natural while also allowing your colour to grow out, perfect for clients who prefer low maintenance locks.

The money piece

Are your craving a seasonal change but don’t want to commit to an all over? Our Birmingham hairdressers have the solution, this colour trend offers clients a fresh look without the maintenance. This highlighting trends sees a larger section of hair bleach usually placed to frame the face, the strands of hair go right into the roots around the hairline. This technique lifts your complexion, makes your colour pop and grows out softly with minimal upkeep. This trend was started by Beyoncé who showed off a lighter look. Our Birmingham hairdresser explain this works for all hair colours reds, blondes, brunettes, the options are endless!

Strawberry blonde

Shades of red are still popular for 2020 but if you’re looking for something lighter then our expert colour technician’s suggest strawberry blonde is the way forward. It’s a low maintenance shade that allows you to have a lot of flexibility in how intense you would like it to be. As the colour comes in a variety of shades this means there is something to suit all complexions! Though Emma Stone consistently experiments with a variety of red and blonde tones she always circles back to her classic strawberry blonde hue.

Deep dark brunette

No hair colour is the same and just like there is a variety of blonde tones this is the same for brunettes too! Whether you want to achieve a dark chocolate colour or a light honey there is endless options to choose from. Here are our favourites picked out by our Birmingham hairdressers;

Chocolate – A popular choice for brunettes which can vary from a rich shade to a lighter milk chocolate. 

Espresso – As dark brown as you can go before black, espresso is a stunning colour as seen on Mila Kunis.

Chestnut – The colour can add warmth to fair complexions and can give you a little taste of the redhead life without going full throttle.

 Even if you are naturally brunette you can still update your colour darker or more vibrant with a natural glossing.
