At Jo Hansford, we pride ourselves on not just following trends but setting them. In the ever-evolving world of hair trends, being at the forefront of the latest styles is crucial for our team of dedicated stylists. Selected by our creative stylist Frankie Moody and senior colourist Louisa Moore we delve into the hottest styles, colours and techniques for this season and look at what's in store for 2024.
Honey Glazed Blondes: Embracing Warmth
Say goodbye to the cool, ashy blondes of the past. Today, many of us are less hesitant to embrace the natural warmth in our hair as we adopt the Honey Glazed Blonde trend. This style strikes the perfect balance, adding subtle depth without overpowering your natural colouring. What's more, it's wonderfully complimentary to a wide range of skin tones. Honey Glazed Blondes isn't just about hair colour; it's about embracing your unique tones and radiance. As we move forward into 2024, expect to see more of this trend
Solid Shiny Colours: All About High Shine
Grunge glam is still a powerful style with figures like singer-songwriter Anne Marie embracing this trend. We predict a continued shift away from natural-looking hair for some towards solid, shiny colours. The main feature of this is characterised by block colours, where the colour intensity remains consistent from roots to ends, amplified with a beautiful high-gloss shine. Moving forward to next year, we expect this trend to evolve further with not just a glossy finish but also seeking bold statements, continuing to make heads turn.
Textured Soft Bob: Modern Elegance
The classic bob gets a contemporary makeover. Instead of harsh, blunt edges, this season's version is all about softer lines and added texture. This low-maintenance style is perfect for clients with medium or long hair who seek something different without the daily styling commitment. American model Hailey Bieber has made this look her own, showcasing its versatility and laid-back charm. This is a great go-to style for those desiring both modern elegance and adaptability that suits various hair lengths and textures
Layering Layers: Movement and Definition
For those seeking a softer approach to choppy and shaggy layers, there's great news: layered hairstyles are set to gain even more popularity in 2024. Layering is a powerful technique for adding movement and definition to long hair, providing a fresh and vibrant appearance. Layering layers shows no signs of slowing down and is perfect for those who want an effortlessly chic look. Set to become a prominent style in the coming seasons, this trend is a versatile and timeless technique which enhances the natural flow of your hair giving irresistible movement.
Embracing Textures: Embracing The Natural
At Jo Hansford we have long celebrated the natural textures of hair. We are seeing more and more clients breaking away from the ‘perfect hair’ favoured in previous years and enjoying being a bit more wild and free! With the right products and treatments, it's easier than ever to enhance and celebrate your hair's unique characteristics. This trend, as seen on singer-songwriter Rita Ora, is all about individuality and self-expression. We believe this will be a strong look moving into 2024, as more of us choose authenticity resulting in a beautiful diversity of styles.
Retro Looks: Party Perfect
Fashion trends often come full circle, and this time around, the '70s, '90s, and the 00s are back in style. Retro-inspired hairstyles like big blowouts have made a triumphant return, as seen on fashion icons like Kendall Jenner. But it's not just about hairstyles; it's about the whole look. Hair accessories, such as jaw clips, are being used to create classic updos with a modern twist. This combination adds an effortless yet glamorous touch, perfect for any party or special occasion.
