Over spring and summer we saw the vibrant, orange money-piece across our socials - a favourite look amongst influencers and celebrities such as Bella Hadid. For autumn, we’re toning it down with more autumnal hues. Auburn hair with copper tones is sure to be the go-to colour for the season.
To maintain colour, encourage your clients to use protective products that ensure longevity of colour and good condition of the hair. The Alter Ego Color Care range is perfect for keeping colour vibrant and the hair healthy.

PONYTAILS AND HEADBANDS

We have found the ideal Christmas party look for 2021! A ponytail with an embellished headband is the perfect choice to glam up any look. For a more polished feel, try a sleek, high ponytail with flicked out ends, as seen on Ashley Tisdale. For clients that like a relaxed vibe, Giambattista Valli paired a pearl headband with a low, textured ponytail at their autumn/winter 2021 catwalk show.
If your client is wanting a glam ponytail look, spritz the hair with KEVIN.MURPHY BLOW.DRY EVER.BOUNCE before blow drying, to ensure volume and bounce to the ponytail. Finish with KEVIN.MURPHY SESSION.SPRAY FLEX for a flexible yet lasting hold. For clients that want a more effortless finish, KEVIN.MURPHY BEDROOM.HAIR is a flexible, texturising finishing spray that leaves hair looking sexy and tousled with added movement.

Perfect for adding dimension, caramel and honey highlights are a stunning choice for those with curly hair.

THE LONG BOB

For the ultimate, cool girl look, a long bob cut is the way to go. Less is more for keeping the look effortless and fuss-free. If your clients are after a more casual feel, textured and lived in locks are key to nailing this laid-back, rocker vibe. For those that want a more striking style, a super sharp and sleek, long bob is going to be an autumn/winter fave. If your client is hesitant to go for a shorter chop, flip in the ends to give the illusion of a shorter cut.
SACHAJUAN Volume Powder will create volume and structure while the SACHAJUAN Ocean Mist will add to the texture to help create that care-free look. For those opting for the sleek style, SACHAJUAN Shine Serum will have your hair looking ultra-glossy and smooth whilst providing a protective finish.

GROWN OUT FRINGES

Continuing from the 70s inspired looks that were a favourite for the summer, grown out fringes or curtain bangs are here to stay for the winter months. Soft, blown-out curls paired with a grown out fringe gives the ultimate, retro look. Fringes are not just for straight hair either, this look works perfectly for those with curly hair too!
A good base is key for ensuring lasting hold and ultimate volume, wash hair with KEVIN.MURPHY PLUMPING.WASH and KEVIN.MURPHY PLUMPING.RINSE before blow drying and styling the hair into shape. For curly haired clients, create frizz-free definition with the KEVIN.MURPHY KILLER.CURLS. This product creates curls that look natural and soft with the ideal balance of strong hold and elasticity.
