New year, new hair? Yes, it’s that time in the calendar when resolutions are in the air. And when it comes to your beauty routines and style that you want to show to the world on your well-crafted social image, the choices are abundant. Here’s how to help you navigate the many options when it comes to your hair’s health, shades and accessorizing. Read on!
It goes without saying that before any haircut, hair colour or hairstyle consideration, beautifully healthy and shiny hair should be your number one priority.
To get you there, getting regular trimmings and using nutrient-rich masks are the best tools you can invest in. If you’re a big fan of hot tools, consider giving your signature hairstyle a break a few days a month, and just let hair air dry. A plus during the winter when you’ll want to minimize static. Also, air-drying doesn’t automatically mean wash and go. There are many new techniques and advanced products now to create texture and shape without the need for hot tools. It’s about focusing on hydration and learning how to style hair with the least heat possible.
A good reminder, organic hair care brand products from Davines are made with wholesome, small-scale farm ingredients known for their nutrients and devoid of many harmful chemicals. And their performance is unparalleled.
Copper Hair for Fun
The colour magicians at the Pantone Color Institute have predicted that 2024 will be the year of peach fuzz, a “shade that resonates with compassion, offers a tactile embrace, and effortlessly bridges the youthful with the timeless.” When it comes to hair colour, expect to see coppers, apricots and warm tones make a comeback. You can already see big celebrities trade in their balayages and extreme hair colours for something warmer and velvety that’s softer.
A good example of the shifting tastes in hair colour is how ‘cowboy copper,’ a stunning shade that artfully blends copper and chestnut brown, is gaining popularity at the moment. Even if it’s in the brunette family, this new trending shade embraces tones of gold and copper, and gives a sheen of full, rich colour, to the hair.’ And the big plus is that it’s super flattering to just about everyone. Hair colourists say it’s also much more versatile than traditional copper, making if more wearable, too, for different types of skin tones. And who doesn’t love that!
Medium-hair length haircuts were all the rage in 2023, with modern shags and mullets taking the lead, while blunt bobs and choppy bobs were still going strong if you wanted a less dramatic haircut. So, no need to take a wild guess: both these polished and grungy cuts will continue in 2024, adapted to each person’s unique style. Length? Think a bit above the shoulders.
If you’re tempted to go longer, think medium length, which is great to keep your hair healthy while giving you some good styling options in terms of variety. But without all the hassle and maintenance that comes with super long hair.
And there you have it! A few ideas for your hair to start out the year fresh and new.
