AW22 trend predictions

Wondering what’s hot for AW22? After the summer we’ve been blessed with this year, we’ll certainly be ready for something cooler – in both weather and hair tones. Well, that’s what the Thomas Hills, Director of TH1 tell us.

Ultra Violet

Graffiti collection

Move over strawberry blonde and hints of pink, there’s a new season shade in town! This Autumn/Winter it’s all about the ultra violet and its myriad incarnations. From purple rinse to indigo, it’s a look I see trickling down into the salon for clients looking to banish the winter blues. This colour is perfect for fairer skin tones, with balayage a great option for clients preferring a more natural look in line with the new season.

Try an all-over colour for your bolder clients (as pictured in my Graffiti collection), while a nod to the new season fave works well as pictured in the look I created above: a small but punchy take on this season’s purple reign.

Chocolate Box

This A/W22 season I predict a riot of rich cocoa brunettes and hair that looks deliciously natural. Finish will be mineralised, rich, glossy and luxe. It’s a thoroughly modern look for the new season and in line with a lot of clients looking to take back control by looking (and living) their very best. As with all great hair colour, what’s best for your clients will vary according to their skin tone and natural colour, but I love creating depth at the roots with slightly lighter ends, as this adds the all-important shine, depth and dimension. My hottest brunette hits this A/W22 season were Celine, Jacquemus and Emilio Pucci (where brunette bobs reigned supreme). Adding a high shine finish, using a colour gloss, takes this look to the next level: it’s original and polished and perfect for the long winter days ahead.

Dual Leaper

Graffiti collection

Two-tone hair is set to be big news this Autumn/Winter, offering clients the perfect way to up their style game. My favourite runway reference was 16 Arlington’s showcase, where feather light strands of hand painted coloured hairpieces matched the prints perfectly.

Juxtaposition collection

Not for the faint hearted, this is a look that can be created artfully using hair extensions, but for those clients who like to walk on the wild side, colour combos can be as polarising as they dare, as pictured in my Graffiti collection and Juxtaposition collection.
