2016 was all about the sombres and ombres. Redken Artist, Celene Dupuis suggests refreshing this sexy hair look by moving up your haircolor. Wondering what this means? Well, as Dupuis puts it “By moving up your ombre and balayage, you can keep things looking softer. Your stylist will keep the rooting on the scalp and use a hair gloss like Shades EQ for added dimension.” Dimension and glossy hair? Sign us up! This trend is great for those who already love their color, but are looking for something a little extra.

Forget bronzer! Haircolor is a great way to add warmth to your complexion without piling on any makeup. Dupuis suggests ditching icy hues in the new year in favor of warmer tones. “Try warmer pastels such as peach, rose gold or pastel yellow for rich warm blonde” or opt for a warm rose gold or pumpkin spice haircolor like Redken hair colorist Kimberly Teff’s clients.

With even a simple hair gloss treatment, you can add rich tones to your hair that immediately brighten the look of your skin. Basically, haircolor is the new makeup!

Bold, beachy hair texture was everywhere in 2016 and this trend’s momentum isn’t slowing down in the new year, according to a few of Redken’s top hairstylists.

As Dupuis points out, “SoCal anything – beachy soft and sexy will be huge in 2017.”

Tina Terry Hunt couldn’t agree more as she notes that any hairstyle or color that enhances movement is the perfect way to elevate your style.

“I love that we are seeing people embrace their natural texture, waves, curls, spirals, and everything in-between,” Washburn states. To embrace your own natural texture, reach for haircare and styling products that help to enhance body and movement.

For beachy texture, turn to Redken’s Beach Envy line for imperfect volume and dimension. If you’re looking to bring out the best in your curls, the Curvaceous line is perfect for you no matter what your curl type is.

For those with flat, limp looking locks, 2017 is the year to pump up your volume. According to Redken Artist Marco Arena, 2017 is all about volume and big textured hair. To get quick and easy volume all throughout your hair, start by gently backcombing your roots and setting your tease with Quick Tease 15 hairspray. From there, add texture to your ends with a few sprays of Windblown texturizing spray. It’s guaranteed to give you sexy, windblown hair that lasts all day long.

If You Want Everyone To Do A Triple Take…

One of the biggest trends that our artists couldn’t stop raving about for 2017 is the pastel haircolor trend. Whether you want a dusty mauve shade or a gorgeous rose gold haircolor, pastels are an exciting way to be bold and edgy, while still looking soft and glamorous. What more could you ask for in 2017?

It’s time to let your hair make a statement. Whether you decide to gloss it up or go bold with a vivid haircolor, let your hair be your best accessory in 2017.
