Grace Dalgleish – trends talk

A hairdresser at the prestigious Brooks&Brooks salon in central London, Grace Dalgleish has learned tons under the tutelage of award-winners Jamie and Sally Brooks. Here she tells us that as colour continues to be the biggest trend of 2017/18, we should note key shades for the upcoming season, with the desire to create a personalised look the main driver:
“Gone are the days of booking in for a half head of highlights or a tint, colour is unique to the individual and personal to the hair this season. With bespoke services becoming the norm, hair colouring has changed and AW17 is an exciting time for colour,” says Grace Dalgleish at Brooks & Brooks, London. Here are her three top look
• Blush Blondes: Varnishing hair is the new add-on service for all colour clients. Adding a dot of pink to the blonde formula will take it from dab to fab in an instant, leaving a luxurious, expensive finish. The glaze will last up to two weeks and fade back to the original blonde, leaving a Champagne hue.
Perfect for clients who have fair skin as the extra dash of colour will add warmth to their complexion and stop them feeling and looking washed out.
• Chameleon Canvas: Head-to-toe full commitment, this isn’t for the light hearted, but your pre-lightened clients will love its versatility. Whether it’s lilac undertones, or full-on metallic silver, it’s a look that they can change as often as their nail varnish.
Perfect for the chameleon client who likes to switch up their look, they can go from pastel metallic to ice queen vibes, this can be personalised to make a statement.

• Bronzed Coppers: This trend is replacing the metallic palette. With a range of coppers to choose from, there’s something for all skin types and hair types – from peachy hues to deep and vibrant, it’s best kept matte and undone.
Perfect for clients who want a lazy-girl texture and a more natural tone.
