Danny Woollard of Bohemia, boutique hair salon in Ipswich talks enduring hair trends for 2015
In the last couple of years we’ve seen a rise in the popularity of Balayage and Ombrè colouring techniques. Throughout the spring and summer these techniques have given clients the ability to wear an on-trend look without the high maintenance and commitment of other traditional highlighting methods.
This look can be adapted so during autumn and winter the depth and tone of the contrasting colours can be made deeper and richer to complement differing skin tone. It’s the versatility and low maintenance of these styles that means we will still be creating plenty of these beautiful styles and all of their various incarnations throughout 2015.
Shape and length is something that can be tailored to each individual client. Gone are the days of everyone wanting one particular style, regardless of whether it suited. Your hair stylist should be able to offer advice on what will work for you. Cutting techniques vary greatly and it is important to find someone that understands your hair type and will use an appropriate technique to help aid day-to-day styling. Many of today’s styles are far less textured than they were five years ago. Short hair is now sleeker, sharper and far less feathered; there is still a place for texturising but it must be used wisely. For longer hair, volume and body are back in a big way.
Men’s fashion evolves less quickly than women’s, so the 50s inspired quiffs that we’ve have been seeing will continue into 2015. Also traditional barbering skills such as really tight clipper work are really going to be popular this coming year.
New products from ghd are set to be big. Their incredible new Eclipse stylers have new features to help curling and waving and they have also just launched their new Curve range of barrelled tongs and wands and our stylists are absolutely love using them to create soft and gentle curls and waves.
There have been huge developments within the world of haircare and styling products and big for 2015 will be the growing market of volumising powders. We’ve used many within the salon but we love L’Orèal Super Dust. These products sprinkle into the roots of dried hair and give real volume and lift. We are also a Kérastase approved stockiest and highly recommend the Kérastase Elixir Utime which is a luxurious smoothing oil. Beautifully light, this oil smoothes and protects the hair as well as giving shine.
Just pop into the salon at 15 Queen Street, Ipswich, Suffolk, IP1 1SS or book a consultation with one of our stylists on 01473 219690 to see how these techniques and products could work for you.
