Fashion month has come to a close, and after some careful studying we can report that 2018's popular hair trends are far from boring. This season is all about rejuvenating your everyday style with texture and accessories. We sat down with Jayde Turner-Ledwidge, stylist/colourist at Edwards & Co, and discussed how to translate the runway trends into everyday life.

HAIR CLIPS BY PARIS MODE

#1 Hair Accessories

“I feel like back in the day there weren’t many chic ones out there, but these days most high end brands to fast fashion labels have scarves, pins, scrunchies, bows, clips and ribbons”, Jayde tells us. Try these looks when you hair is clean and smooth, or use the clips to tame annoying flyaways and awkward-length fringe regrowth. Simply style hair as normal (we love a little wave and texture) then clip back hair to one side –  behind the ear or at the temple. For a sweet look, try clipping hair back behind both ears,  one clip on each side.

#3 Crazy Curls

Call your mum, because the 80’s perm is back – with a modern twist. “The trend right now with curls is an almost 70’s curl that is flatter at the root, quite textures and generally with a fringe”. If you’re ready to go full curl, consider getting a perm treatment. Newer versions of the – notoriously hair-destroying – trend is gentler and can be adjusted depending upon hair type and desired outcome. If your hair suits the treatment, “I would recommend keeping it parted in the middle and or getting some feathered shorter laters around the face to frame the curls properly”, says Jayde.

If you’d rather mimic the look with a small barrel curling iron, “use a setting spray like KEVIN MURPHY anti-gravity throughout and dry it in. There aren’t a lot of tiny tongs in the Australian market, so grab a Vidal Sassoon 19mm tong, or if you want tighter or your hair is particularly straight, get a MUK stick and use it to the smallest chronicle attachment. Use it throughout alternating ways, but keep all the sections around your face facing backwards. Let it cool down completely and then spritz KEVIN MURPHY Hair Resort to add the texture before shaking it out with your hands or a large tooth comb.”

Something to keep in mind: “If you have ever taken your hair lighter… Even if it was 4 years ago, it was probably 99.9 percent of the time done so with bleach- and in this case perming is not for you. Your hair wont handle another chemical service. If you are considering this you need to be 100% transparent with the hairdresser. If the hairdresser hasn’t asked you about previous chemical services then i would suggest researching a little further and seeing somebody else”.

#5 Braids

As one of the most versatile trends on our list, there are no boundaries for what you can create. We’ve seen everything from micro-braids hidden amongst waves, to intricate twists with incredible designs. For a look that can be worn desk-to-dinner, weave and twist your hair into  braided bun.

Part the hair in three sections – left, centre, right – then braid each sectionfrom top to bottom and secure with a clear elastic. Use your hands to seperate and loosen up the braid along the head, for a more relaxed vibe. Twist the ends of the braid together into a bun and secure with pins that closely resemble your hair colour. To take the look into night, incorporate hair accessories into the braid.
