If you’re someone who’s not looking to dye your entire head of hair, beautiful foil-free techniques, subtle face-framing highlights, and babylights are in. This year’s trends are dark, warm and cosy. Whether you’re consistently daring with hair dyes or you want to play with highlights for the first time, these hair colour fads have options for all you hair obsessed gals!

Chocolate Mauve

This subtle look is ideal for brunettes who want to dip their toes in the hair colour water without diving in.

Jewel tones

This multi-hued look is bold without being as intense as the ultra-vibrant punk colours.

Nude hair

This soft and all natural look is designed to complement your skin tone, and it's the perfect hue if you're looking to make a subtle statement.

Subtle Face-Framing Highlights

With the hand-painted and foil-free colouring techniques that are in, highlights are looking less chunky and more natural. The lightest face-framing highlights give a flattering look that the sun could have produced itself.

Golden Ombre

For this ombré look to work, make sure you have a very subtle, gradual change of colour from the crown of your head to the extra-blonde ends.


Created to have the beauty of a child’s fine, sun-kissed, non-damaged hair (per the name), these softer than soft highlights are the prettiest and least drastic way to update your hair.

Cinnamon Caramel Swirl

Perfect for brunettes who want a trendy upgrade, this highlighted look combines tones of brown and caramel blonde.


If you’re starting to grey naturally, don’t head to the salon to cover it up! Smoky greys and charcoals are in this season, and it’s a welcome diversion from the too-bright “unicorn” colours.


Whether you call it burgundy, eggplant, deep mahogany, or dark maroon, this bold shade is in. It’s an easy colour for girls with black or brunette hair to transition with if they’re trying out colour for the first time, and it can range from barely-there colour to full crimson.
