It’s time to embrace the change of season with a fresh new ‘do. From the cuts to the colours and styling cues ruling the streets, your social feed and the runways, here are the top three hottest hair trends for 2023 – plus the products that will help you ace your new look. Read on, beauties.
1. The Super Sleek
While we’ll never be done with tousled, bedhead vibes and va-va-volume for long, this season it’s all about the taming of the ‘do. Sliding down all the SS2023 runways, slicked, sleek and wet look locks will be everywhere. Take it from us, now is NOT the time to have a hair out of place.
Worried glossy will veer into greasy? Less drenched-looking than heavily gelled strands, ultra-shiny, poker-straight glass hair is another take on sleek locks – as rocked by Kimmy K.
Whichever style you take a shine to, don’t leave home without taming your frizz and flyaways with a seriously smoothing serum like our Miracle Hair Elixir. Protecting your strands up to 220°c, this is also your go-to product before heat styling.
2. Mushroom Blonde
Move over Barbie blonde – colourists are calling mushroom blonde the shade of the season. A super blended cool-toned hue that’s not quite blonde, not quite brunette, mushroom blonde is the perfect in-between colour if you’re not ready to take the full platinum plunge. This ashy melange of highlights and lowlights is reminiscent of the varied shades of your favourite fungi. And, if you’re looking to stretch out the time between salon visits, it’s the lived-in look for you.
If you want to flaunt this stunning look, you definitely need to use a toner. However, toners can be a bit of a double-edged sword, as they can leave your locks feeling parched and lifeless. That's where a trusty post-colour companion comes in! You'll want to give your tresses a little extra TLC with a super-nourishing treatment like our Bond Building Pre-Shampoo Treatment. It's the perfect way to revive your strands and keep them looking their best!
3. Side Parts
Sorry Gen Z, the celebs have spoken and those side parts you famously scoffed at are officially back in vogue. Spotted on everyone from Zendaya to Selena Gomez, Maude Apatow and Bella Hadid, side parts were also de rigueur at the Spring-Summer shows. Adorning wet-look, sleek and braided hairstyles at the likes of Loewe and Miu Miu, this part position pairs perfectly with a bun. It’s also a killer way to add volume to a big, bouncy blowdry.
To ensure your part is flake-free and your roots are squeaky-clean (but hydrated), add a scalp scrub to your routine once a week, before shampooing.
