latest hair trends

“Bronde ombre. Bronde is the gorgeous shade in between brown and blonde, and this colour is very versatile and can be customised to suit every skin tone.” – Gary Chew, co-founder of Salon Vim


“Balayage is a freehand colouring technique that will continue to be big this year. Instead of (simply using) single colours, however, multiple colours can be applied to the bleached part of the hair to create a gradient effect for greater depth, or a more natural-looking appearance.” – Kantaro Suzuki, director of kizuki+LIM


“Androgynous hairstyles. They have been appearing all over the Fashion Week runways for Spring Summer 2017. (But I’m not referring only) to pixie ‘dos: Other gender-fluid hairstyles like shaggy cuts, bowl cuts and buzzed sides are all gaining popularity.” – Emil Khor, salon director of Chez Vous



“Hair is definitely rising closer to the shoulder, and I love how a woman’s neck is elongated with a style I call the “Paris lob”, (which provides an elegant, demure aura) that’s subtle and yet distinct. Equally essential to hair trends are movement and lightness. The look (to achieve) is soft and takes away the fuss of everyday styling: perfect for the modern, busy woman who wants to look immaculately groomed yet sexy.” – Kim Robinson, founder of Kim Robinson


“Super sleek hair. Straight, shiny, and centre-parted hair is one of the biggest trends for 2017 – it is probably the easiest (hairdo) that’s classic, elegant and will bring out your best features.” – Monica Tan, founder-director of Kimage 


“Balayage. Our Undone Colour concept combines this technique and soft ombre to create natural freehand highlights, giving hair a soft, sun-kissed look.” – Ashley Soh, co-founder of Blow+Bar


“Colour will continue to be big in 2017 using techniques like balayage to blend monochromatic hues (such as different tones of brown or blue) to create one cohesive look. It’ll be a more grown-up, subtle take on colour. On the other spectrum: A sleek, no-frills centre-parted look, just barely grazing the shoulder.” – Calvin Gan, creative director of Hairloom
