August is just around the corner, and although blondes are renowned for being on trend for summer, they will also be a huge trend for autumn this year. Below, Lea Shaw, discusses some of the key styling trends that will enhance the look of blonde hair and that will be super on trend for the new season…
Bouncy blowdry’s For those who love the classic and sophisticated look, bouncy blowdrys are the way to go. This style is perfect for showcasing the richness of blonde colours. Bouncy blowdrys are great for all clients, whether they have short or long hair, and they bring out the inner diva in every blonde. Some of my clients come for a blow-dry every week and it keeps their hair looking fresh the whole week!
Slicked back look For clients who love making a bold statement, the slicked-back wet look is a fabulous choice. This style gives the illusion of freshly showered hair, adding an element of allure and confidence to your appearance. This look will make blonde hair glisten under the sun!
Textured Ponytail A simple yet stylish option, the textured ponytail takes your standard ponytail to the next level. Create this look by teasing the crown of the head for added volume and then securing hair into a low or high ponytail. The textured ponytail highlights blonde hair while giving off an on-trend vibe.
Half-Up Half-Down For a trendy yet effortless look, the half-up half-down look is a go-to style that effortlessly shows off blonde locks. It is the perfect balance between a relaxed and chic look. I would pull out the fringe parts at the front of the hair and create a sleek side fringe look or leave them tousled at the front to frame the face.
Beachy Waves An all time favourite, beachy waves which continues to trend year on year. The style blends an effortless look with a touch of glamour. The key to achieving this look is to create soft, loose waves that mimic the natural texture of the hair. I recommend using a curling wand with a larger barrel to create those loose waves and then finish by using a texturising salt spray for that beachy look.
These hairstyle trends for August 2023 offer a wide range of options for showcasing beautiful blonde hair.
