The SS19 hair trends we can’t wait to try

The SS19 hair trends we can’t wait to try

Chaotic hair at Elie Saab, grungy pastels at Ashley Williams and braids of all shapes and sizes, from microbraid to warrior… HOLLY O’NEILL gets the expert guide to this season’s most exciting hair trends.

RAW TEXTURE

From Elie Saab’s dishevelment and Fendi’s flyaways, it’s all about texture. “I like Moroccanoil Dry Texture Spray,” says hairstylist Darren Lacken of Crow Street Collective. “Isolate different areas of the hair to get texture in different sections. Working with your hot tools, put a bend on the root, a bend on the mid-band and in the ends of different parts of the hair so you can see different waves and you’re creating volume, grit and texture.”

DYE HARD

For perfect pastel inspiration, think periwinkle Lady Gaga at the Golden Globes, Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette or Marc Jacob SS19 vivid tones, or try a little grit, like Ashley Williams’ grubby electric hues. Whatever you choose, don’t try this at home. “To achieve pastel, your hair must be pre-lightened, and if you are not trained professionally, hair can be compromised passed breaking point. Ask in-salon for L’Oreal Smartbond and get advice on a tone that is suitable,” says Danielle Garner, owner of Wildflower Creative Studio. “I love creating multi-tonal pastels so that the fade isn’t as harsh. For intensity, your root can be deeper than the ends to last longer.”

SNEAK PEEK BRAIDS

“Microbraids are big news across the catwalks again this season, usually seen as delicate and romantic braids used to add attitude and edginess to the overall looks – like those created by Eugene Souleiman for Preen by Thornton Bregazzi,” says Roisin Hynes at Sarah Mason Professional Galway. “Braids can be positioned anywhere on the head under the hairline to add volume or constructed carefully across the parting for a more editorial look.
