As the seasons change, it’s force of habit to change your hairstyle. Whether it’s a drastic cut or a subtle color, a little spruce goes a long way in making sure you feel as confident and special as you should. Here are a collection of top Philly stylist’s trend predictions for spring 2019’s cuts, colors, styles and accessories.
“There will be less layered looks happening this spring in terms of the bob shape. The shape is squarer and fuller on the bottom without much angling. This shape also supports a stronger bang, and looks youthful and quirky without trying too hard. We're also loving pixies with softness for women of all ages. These work best with good angular features, and can really put the focus on the facial structure and beauty. ”
“Wearing white after labor day used to be a huge taboo. That is old thinking and white is fresh and modern any time now. The same holds for hair. While lots of people like to go lighter in spring and summer, what I am seeing is that desire for something different is now season-less. Well thought out hair is always in style. The strength of the camel/cream/beige monochromatic palate this spring is the perfect backdrop for high end and real-looking hair color. ”
“Done right, a blunt bob is always flattering. You can have a longer bob with more ways to style it, and the blunt cut creates thickness. But I don’t recommend changing the length of your hair from super long to short overnight. That causes stress and is unnecessary. Additionally, people are embracing their silver/gray hair, and many silver haired clients have opted for a beautiful, rich glaze on their locks to give it shine and bounce.”
“I think there are going to be more blunt haircuts with tons of texture and movement. It’s such a beautiful flattering haircut for all hair types, and it’s so fun because you can do so much with it, especially when it’s shorter in length around the shoulder. Hair accessories are here, and I think they’re here to stay. They add the perfect edge or the prettiest touch to any hairstyle, and the accessories to have are statement bobby pins.”
“Foil patterns are back! Don’t be surprised when your stylist achieves your desired look with ‘old school’ foils. All sorts of amazing foil patterns are totally necessary for the brighter pop that everyone craves this time of year. Compete your service with a ‘shadow root’, a pigmented color melt, to create a soft, lived in blonde look. Also, forget voluminous bounce this season. Sleek is everything. Invest in an extra large sized “Edmondo Blando” bristle brush and smooth away. Finish your dried style with a tap from your favorite flat iron and you are set!”
