The Colours of autumn

As the season changes, so does our desire to change our look and style. Here are Studio 8’s exciting tips and trends for autumn and winter 2019.

Styling: The blow dry is back. After years of beachy waves created by hot tools, more women are asking for
a beautiful bouncy blow dry. This technique of styling is one of our faves at Studio 8. It really gives a silky soft finish and adds so much shine and glamour to the hairstyle. A good blow dry can last you up to a week.

Hair cuts: At Studio 8, we have noticed that the bob has made a major come back over the last six months and is taking over from the lob. A blunt cut just a couple of inches below the jawline, worn either straight, wavy or messy, gives a more edgy look. When it comes to bangs this season, the curtain fringe is back: think centre parting and a grown-out fringe. It’s textured and with a messy bun or ponytail, gives a real 70’s look.

Blondes: Blondes are no longer your boxed set of foil highlights to the root. Most people want more tone, depth and root shadow to their blonde. A lot of clients are scared at the mere mention of warmth in a blonde, but warmth does not mean brassy. You can add beige, gold and honey tones to the hair which will really soften your colour and compliment your skin tone.  Ice blonde will always be a favourite but instead of the grey tones that have been trending the last few years, go for a soft hue of pink or lavender. If you are thinking of changing your blonde hair, come and speak to one of our blonde specialists at Studio 8 to find out the tone and style that suit you and your lifestyle.

Face Framing: Face framing is a winner with clients that are wary of upkeep. Just a few pieces around the face can make all the difference and really lighten up eyes and facial features.

The Visible Root: The dark root is not going anywhere. Whether you choose a soft shadow tone or a high balayage, the visible root is one of the Northern Beaches’ favourites. A darker root adds tone and depth to the hair giving you a lived in more natural blonde. It’s a must for our blonde clients who want to keep hair looking fresh in between appointments.•
