#ColourFest: Tracy Hayes on Autumn 2021 Hair Trends
Fudge Professional Global Colour Ambassador, Tracy Hayes on A/W hair colour trends.
Pastels still look to be a trend for the A/W but how do upgrade the summer pastel colour hair trend?
Pastels have definitely been a hit this summer even for the male customers. Every shade from baby blue, candy floss pink, pastel lemons & limes was a suitable choice. Going through into the autumn, pastels will still be there, but not quite as colourful. Shades such as Antique Rose, Soft Blush Corals, Icy Lilacs & Silver Greys will take over the more playful summer nuances. Our Paintbox Whiter Shade of Pale (£12,95 for 150ml) is the ideal product to create a pastel hue.
Will reds and brunettes be wearing a new look i.e., technique, shades?
Reds often come into play during the autumn and winter months. My prediction for the colder months consists of intense all-over bold tones, moving away from the balayage looks of the summer months. With the Brunette tones, we will see many rich Mocca tones. Brunettes will be opting for face framing techniques with warm honey and caramels tones to soften the whole result.
How do you see the Money Piece trend progressing in the winter months?
The Money Piece trend is here to stay, and we’ll continue to see those statement colours used to face frame. Whereas in the summer the emphasis has been on blonde nuances, during this autumn we will be seeing a variety of colours to compliment, all dependant on the base colour tone. Think your Rebel Streaks with contrasting, bolder looks – with auburn red heads, expect to see gold copper tones around the face, whilst brunette we will be seeing biscuit and caramel honey tones and then blondes will go contrasting warmer golden tones in the winter months.
How does the brown and blonde balayage work during the colder months?
This type of technique definitely works better when warmer tones are used. Try to imagine golden hues running through the hair, and different tonal effects from softer to warmer colours to create an iridescent effect throughout the hair.
Grey is continuing to be a trend this A/W season, is there any tricks to keep the grey looking luxe and glossy?
If you’re not a natural grey, then the grey looks are best achieved over a bleached base, so conditioning, hydrating, and nourishing the hair is extremely important to keep the hair in top condition. Definitely recommend a duo that will cover those basis like our Fudge Professional Damage Rewind Shampoo and Conditioner (£26 for x2 250ml). Furthermore, in order to keep any brassy tones at bay (keep in mind that the grey colour will naturally fade with each wash) a purple shampoo is a must, so in this case, the Fudge Professional Clean Blonde Damage Rewind Shampoo (£15 for 250ml) is the perfect go to.
Golden Blondes will be big this autumn, what should we be asking our colourist for?
Dependant on your colour service there is always a way to introduce some golden tones into your hair dying routine. Your colourist will choose the best technique for you, but for example highlights or balayage can be the most suitable options to easily introduce golden tones into your colour palette. For those that have more brunette tones, the Money Piece technique is the perfect way to add some golden blondes around the face and to give the impression of softness and interest to the hair.
How should you care for your colour in the winter months?
It’s all about keeping your colour salon fresh and #ownyourtone this A/W. The Fudge Professional range of shampoos, conditioners, and styling products have been purposely created to extend salon colour for longer including our cult Fudge Professional Clean Blonde range and Fudge Professional Cool Brunette (£28 for x2 250ml) duo, all created with the unique Opti-PLEXTM technology that penetrates deep into the hair’s core to reconstruct bonds after chemical, styling, and environmental damage, as well as weightlessly smoothing the cuticle.
