Key Colour Trends for AW20

You are here

With spring/summer a distant memory and months of discontent, autumn/winter 2020 promises to be a colourful season, with new hair trends emerging.

Sam Ashcroft from Brooks & Brooks gives his vision for the three AW20 trends clients will be asking for.

Mushroom Blonde

Mushroom blonde a dimensional blonde with more earthy hues. It falls right in between dark brown and light blonde, working on the cooler side of the spectrum. It is a great shade for people who are already blonde wanting to experiment with darker tones and people who are brunette wanting to add lightness. It is low maintenance which makes it perfect for clients wanting to stretch out a little bit of extra time in between their colour appointments, whilst still making them look great on their zoom meetings.

I am loving the new L’Oreal Dialight shades to create this look: 7.01, 8.21, 10.01 and 10.02. Using these shades to create the smoked mushroom blonde makes it feel different from the classic bronde which is traditionally more warm and golden.

High-vis Red and Coppers

The elegant red streaks seen on Alexander McQueen was an exciting moment for colour. The bright tones used to compliment the collection which featured splashes of ‘Welsh red’, the hue was chosen to mimic the beautiful red houses in Wales.

Golden ember tones and cayenne sunsets are a great colour comeback for autumn/winter. It is instantly glossy and shiny and a perfect statement for the new season. You can keep your red or copper looking vibrant in between colour services using colour conditioners to add a tone boost.

Coloured Roots

A lot of the colour on the catwalk had an emo edge to it - grunge and cool with pops of vivid colours. Dries van Noten and more notably, BIllie Elish, have been fronting this look. It is a high maintenance trend with dark ends and bright neon roots creating the ultimate cool-girl statement.

To get this look, pre-lighten the roots and then tone it with a vivid pop. Perfect for brightening up a cold winter’s day!
