These Are the Only 9 Hair Color Trends That Will Matter in 2020
As far as hair color trends go, balayage has reigned supreme for years. But as we head into a new decade, the experts in the know are predicting that decidedly bolder colours will be inspiring our choices. Chunky highlights, all-over color and vivid hues will be usurping the freehand highlights and pastels that have colored the last decade. But whether you stick with your trusted balayage (because let’s face it, it’s a beautiful and easy look to wear) or you evolve your hair color in the next year and beyond, the experts agree on one thing: Your color should always look healthy.
“The thing all the color trends have in common is shine,” notes Matrix Global Business Ambassador, Tabatha Coffey. “Hair should look rich, luxurious and taken care of, whether you are sporting deep chocolate, high maintenance blonde or anything in between.”
Hair Color Trend #1: Pretty Solid
“There’s a move to strong, solid colours: think browns, blondes, red, blacks, but the tones are going to be more muted,” says celebrity colorist Josh Wood and founder of Josh Wood Atelier in London. “I think, in some ways, it’s a slight reaction against balayage or heavily blended colours
“This shift to strong colors became evident to me as we created the polarizing onyx black and pale blonde colours at Prada, and deep black and red at Miu Miu,” he explains. “Now, we are creating more solid colours in the Atelier. They aren’t as strong as the black, white and reds from the shows, but there is more focus on shine and gloss. If the hair looks healthy and well-conditioned, it’s on-trend, whatever the color. Well-conditioned hair is everything this season, linking into hair health as a symbol of our overall well-being.”
