The team at Barney Martin said that we are still seeing artificial hair colours on the catwalk.
‘Translating for every day wear we see this as chalky pastel blossom tones, true rose, brûlée and bluebell,’ they told FEMAIL.
‘The look is soft multi-coloured highlights, shimmeringly different tones in the hair coming from the root, a return to foiling.’
They explained that colour is bespoke for each individual and they’re encouraging clients to ‘maintain the integrity and health of their hair’ to make it easier to work towards being able to achieve the colour they like.
‘When it comes to colour we know that anything is achievable. Underpinning any colour is the need for healthy hair,’ they said.

FRENCH GIRL FRINGE
One of the hair trends that has seen an increase in searches is the ‘French girl fringe’.
This look is wispy and tousled, with British it-girl Alexa Chung’s eye-skimming bangs perfectly fitting the bill.
If you want to recreate this look it’s best having your fringe cut while it’s dry so you don’t risk going too short.
The most flattering length grazes the eyes and you want the ends of your hair to be feathery, avoiding a blunt cut.

‘If you want to upgrade your pony, Australians are opting for hair scarfs and ribbons to encompass that Parisienne girl essence,’ the team at Pinterest said.
‘There has been an increase in saves of 345 per cent for ‘hair scarf’ ideas and an increase of 100 per cent for hair ribbon ideas in Australia.’
This look can be as simple or as complicated as you want it to be, as all it involves is twisting or tying a scarf into whatever hairstyle you’re wanting to create.

‘The winter fringe will also crop up. It’s not neat but it is perfect. Any cut will embrace the hairs natural texture and movement,’ Barney Martin said.
‘Cuts that offer versatility and work with the hair is the key to hair that does itself.
‘We are seeing 70’s through to the 00’s reworked and the evolution of classics from these era’s are modernised for today.’
A lob is a long bob and one that is slightly textured helps to create the illusion of a slimmer face.
Previously celebrity hairstylist Kevin Murphy told FEMAIL that to create this look you want to use a hot tong to create bends through the mid-lengths and ends of your hair.
‘Create an exaggerated side part to make natural volume through the top and tuck the other side behind your ear,’ he said

HALF-UP HALF-DOWN TOP KNOT
A popular style at the moment is the half-up half-down top knot, which allows those who aren’t fully committed to having their hair entirely up still get in on the fun.
This style works as it keeps the sides of your face flat and long.
‘Take a section from half eyebrow to half eyebrow, pull back to the top of the crown and secure with a hair tie or ribbon,’ Kevin explained.
To finish it off spray it with a dry finishing hairspray with holding power for a soft dry texture.
