The top 5 hair trends of 2018


You know the drill. As soon as January officially sets in, the ‘new year, new you’ phrase is unleashed. Losing weight, getting a promotion and excelling in a new-found hobby all take time; but changing your hair colour, doesn’t.

For the quickest way to get the ‘new you’ ball rolling, check out our top five hair colour trends set to dominate 2018.

Platinum Blonde

Cara Delevingne - platinum hair

Platinum hair is going to be huge for 2018. So jump on the icy bandwagon and ask your hairdresser for one of this year’s hottest dye jobs.

Ice-white and silvery shades can require a lot of upkeep. But as you can see, the results are well worth it.

But if you’re not ready to take the root-to-tip plunge just yet, experiment with platinum highlights or a classic ombré dip.

Rusty Copper

Lily Collins - copper hair

If hair boredom is getting you down, fire-up your locks with a healthy dose of rusty copper. A more natural-looking alternative to bright red, think warm brunette with coppery undertones, instead.

One thing to remember: copper and orange tones work better for fairer skin, while honey and amber shades complement darker skin tones.

Pink Soda

Drew Barrymore - pink hair

Give your hair a 2018 overhaul with a futuristic helping of candy-pop pink. Not for the faint-hearted, it makes for an impressive head of hair all the same.

From bubblegum to baby, make sure you look to the lighter side of the pink palette.

Team with pastel-blue accessories for a spring look that’s practically good enough to eat.

Acid Brights

Katy Perry - acid bright hair

If subtle isn’t your thing and you’re in need of a shade that’s as big as your personality, look to acid brights to really make your hair stand out.

For the more adventurous out there, there’s also neon-yellow, luminous-purple and radioactive-green to take the colour concoctions one step further.

The electric ‘80s are back. And we love it.

Toffee Tips

Olivia Palermo - toffee hair

Warmer tones and softer shades of brown will score you big hair points for 2018. This trend is perfect for those looking for something a little more au naturel.

From toffee tints to subtle caramel babylights, work these undertones through the middle to the ends of your hair. Roots are a no-go!
