If you feel like adding something different to your waves, tie your hair halfway up in a topknot

This will add some fun and a bit of youth. If you’re not into tying up your hair, opt for a sexy, voluminous blow wave, that will have you looking like a Hollywood actress.

Short bobs, lobs, textured bobs, sleek and straight bobs…

Yes, the bob has stood the test of time, so cut it off if you dare! Bobs always look sophisticated and with a wave you can add fun!

With so many bobs to choose from, there is one that will suit you. Ask any stylist for advice on the texture of your hair and your face shape to find the perfect bob for you.

As for trending hair colour, natural colours are in

Think balayage, baby lights and deep roots. It is always best to deepen your hair colour by a level or two in winter. This helps with lower maintenance and gives your hair time to recover from the summer’s sun exposure and highlights.

If you already have highlights, ask your stylist to tone them a little deeper for winter, and try keeping your roots as natural as possible. Also change your home hair care range to achieve the ultimate nutrition your hair will need in winter.

If you are a brunette, ask your stylist to analyze your skin tone and add some warmth to your colour

Deep burgundy, dark chocolates, as well as neutral browns are in. Make sure you use products to nourish your hair and prolong your colour, whilst adding shine. Try the True Colour range by Gary Rom Hair Care.
