AW18 Hair Trends

1. Oiled Waves

Add definition to wavy hair with nourishing hair mousse. The key here is to make sure that your hair doesn’t look too “done” – tease through with fingers to make sure your style has character.

2. Glass Hair

Glass hair is a key trend this season. Focussing on making hair look silky smooth, Glass Hair is a trend seen on our faves, including Kylie Jenner and bae Hailey Baldwin, above. It’s no surprises here that hair oils are your must-have hair product, so stock up and stay sleek.

3. Highlighter Hair

We’re obsessed with SZA’s highlighter hair. We’re talking any neon shades – yellow, green, pink, blue – which you’d expect to see in your pencil case as highlighters. To maintain this bright neon style, keep hair conditioned with our nourishing selection of hair masks.

4. Angled Bob

As seen at Marc Jacobs

Channel the chic angled bob, as seen at Marc Jacobs, by nourishing hair and making the most of your hair straighteners. After spraying with a heat protectant spray, run your straighteners over from root to tip to create a sleek hair style.

5. Wet Look Hair

As seen on Zendaya

It’s an autumn hair trend that comes back every year, but wet look hair is the ultimate in OTT events hair style. We love it on Zendaya, who rocked it on the red carpet – and on the gram. Make sure you hair looks sleek with our range of hair brushes.

6. Natural Curls

Embrace your natural hair and keep your kinks on fleek with specifically developed hair products for afro caribbean hair. We adore this look for both day and night.

7. Banana Clips

As seen on Megan Ellaby

This nineties throwback is a key autumn hair trend for 2018, and we love the retro vibes. Banana clips are clicked into place, and you can add them in to ponytails or to clip back fringes. We love.

8. Low Ponytails

As seen at Brandon Maxwell

Styled by Jack Pecis, these sleek low ponytails are the perfect trending lowkey look. Simply gather hair at the nape of the neck and secure with a hair tie for instant sass. Need a lil more length an volume? Add in some colour matched hair extensions.

9. Pixie Quiff

As seen on Emma Willis

When it comes to short hair trends, this is the key one for AW18. “Emma Willis hair” is being googled up and down the UK, and we love this brushed back look styled by Louis Byrne. Simply brush hair back, back comb, and secure in place with hair spray and hair grips.
