  • Over the past year we’ve seen many blonde celebs like Gigi Hadid and Hailey Bieber trade in their blonde for a pretty brown hair colour, and we expect to see more following in their footsteps for 2022. Brunette colours is all about giving deeper hair energy, dimension, and detail, it’s all too easy when going for a darker shade of hair colour to apply one tone all over, a similar result to using a box dye at home. But really, I’m of the opinion that as a professional hair colourists’ its forever the responsibility of the hairdresser to give our clients something they could never get at home, and so expensive brunette is all about adding detail and interest with multiple deeper shades to make the result more dimensional and expensive looking.” 
  • If you’re interested in trying out expensive brunette, it’s important to use some specific language at the salon: “The key element to discuss with your hairstylist is that you don’t want one flat colour all over. Expensive brunette is all about depth and dimension, and so you and your colourist should agree on the deepest shade and the lightest shade you want to see in your hair and then allow the colourist to place shades between in a way they see fit to enhance your hair cut.”
  • Most retail clients will be looking at trying out these new modern trends and as a hairdresser, you should look to entice your clients and motivate them to try out these trending looks.
  • Even with the summer upon us starting twenty-twenty with some subtle tweaks will go a long way. One of the ways to start summer would be to encourage clients to go for richer, more dimensional versions of their winter and autumn looks,
  • For blondes, however that may mean adding ribbons of deeper shades of blonde to create more shade-on-shade dimension. This may also include glossing their hair to a deeper, buttery tone or playing with a fashion accent like marigold, peach or apricot. For brunette, adding a gloss to make your colour richer, and adding more amber, gold, and “root beer” tones are great options.
  • Overall, the feeling is warmer, richer, and a more lived-in-looking hair color.” And that should maintain the overall trends that seems to take over.
