London’s Top Colorists Predict The Biggest Trends For Summer




Last year we saw colored roots, bunny-tail blonde, and earthy rose tones take over salons and Instagram feeds across the globe — including in London, where some of the world's best stylists are crafting both cutting-edge looks and classic colors. With spring in full bloom and summer well on its way, this season's breakout hair-color trends are shaping up to be the most sought-after yet.

Our obsession with multidimensional copper, traditional balayage, and nostalgic face-framing highlights doesn't seem to be going anywhere. But with more of us requesting big changes post-lockdown, those failsafe shades and trends are in for a major upgrade for spring and summer 2021.

Ahead, a handful of London's most innovative colorists predict the hair shades everyone will be asking for next.

1.

Sunset Copper


"Burgundy was big for 2020, but for spring and summer 2021, it's all about grown-out copper tones that are low-maintenance, glossy, and vibrant," says Francesca Dixon, creative director at HARI's. Dixon adds that the overall look is a lot softer than traditional copper and can be elevated by warm pops of pink, peach, or yellow tones, which give the result a sunset-esque finish. "This is a simple yet effective way to change your color," she says. "We'll see this in blondes, too, with beautiful strawberry tones coming through."


2.

Biscuit Blonde


Adam Reed, UK editorial ambassador for L'Oréal Professionnel, says that buttery biscuit tones — like this stunning finish created by Alex at Mane Painters in Australia — are going to be everywhere this summer. Richer shades erring on caramel are also favored by colorists, but they can be cooled down with flecks of platinum blonde. Be sure to invest in nourishing color care.



3.

Beautiful Bronze


According to Vernon François, Redken global consultant celebrity hairstylist and educator, bronze is the shade to watch come summer, and it suits all skin tones. "I always use Redken Shades EQ colors and have been doing so for years to enhance gloss, tone, and refresh color with no ammonia," says François. Hair expert Danah at Dstylezyou HairLab used the demi-permanent formula to create this look. "It’s all about embracing your individuality while maintaining the integrity of the hair’s structure," says François, "so be prepared for your desired result to take more than one session. It might mean lifting tones initially, especially if your hair is dark, and gradually going lighter over time."



4.

Money Pieces


"'Money piece' highlights are a mix between chunky highlights and soft face-framing highlights," says Dixon of the "low-maintenance" trend, which counts Beyoncé a fan. Dixon explains that the trick is in lighting up the front section of the hair, then toning it so the color is blended beautifully, without looking harsh or stripy. "This look is so versatile and works on all colors, from redheads to brunettes having golden sun-kissed tones and blondes with bright pops of color," she says. "This is where we'll see more crazy creative shades being used, like pastels, rogue blonde, and short-term dips."

5.

Pastel Ombré


"Ombré will be making a comeback, as minimum-maintenance color is going to be big," says Dixon. The two colors are expertly blended or melted into each other, so it's a low-maintenance look that's great for those who don't want to commit to appointments every eight weeks. "This is because your roots will fade into the rest of your hair, eliminating any regrowth problems," says Dixon. "I expect people will get creative with it too; pinks, peaches, and pastel mint and blue tones are all trending."


6.

Brunette Mocha

Katie Hale at Charles Worthington Salons says brunettes will show off the richness in their color this spring, but the trend is more warm than cool. Expect muted mocha tones, which Hale says are great for brunettes who want to stay dark but ditch the red sheen, which is so often the case with dyed brown hair. Take inspiration from this beautiful look created by color expert and educator Jaye Edwards on Instagram.


7.

'60s Golden Blonde


Anita Rice and Stephen Buller of northeast London's favorite salon, Buller and Rice, expect we'll take inspiration from the beautiful blonde hues of the '60s. Unlike balayage, which merges lots of different blonde tones together for a shadowy effect, '60s blonde is a bit more "blocky," as Rice puts it, or closer to one shade. It's still just as Instagram-worthy, as evidenced by this look created by Buller & Rice hair expert Robert McPhilomey.

Hair Panelling


"I have found that there is a real move towards bleach panels around th
