We spoke to the experts at Schwarzkopf about what Autumn/Winter hair trends we should look out for, and it’s seems that short hair is definitely going to make a strong showing.
Want to chop it all off but don’t know how to style it? Here’s how it’s done:
Here Schwarzkopf gives us a glance into the latest hair trends from their Essential Looks Flex Collection for Autumn/Winter, which takes inspiration from international fashion runways, front row personalities, and social media A-listers.
“Trends today reflect how our society is evolving and the way we actually live,” says Schwartzkopf International Creative Director, Simon Ellis.
Trend 1: Genderless
The genderless, A-gender, androgynous look is taking the fashion world by storm.
This season’s catwalks are full of unisex items: oversize jackets, wide trousers, baggy shirts and v-neck sweaters. Anyone can wear a skirt or rock a buzzcut.
Steve Hogan, Creative Direction for Essential Looks calls the Genderless look “styling for the non-conformist”.
The cut is short and choppy, the styling smooth and sleek, slicked back, or strong and bold with modern texture.
The colour direction is based on two extremes: the palest blonde achieved or the deepest blue black.

Trend 2: Athleisure
Gymwear is no longer drab, grey and unflattering and it no longer belongs solely to the gym. Today’s gymwear is bright, bold and creative.
The inspiration for the Athleisure look comes from the King of Sports Luxe, Alexander Wang, who mixes luxurious fabrics with bags of colour, bold patterns and retro styling.
The Athleisure style builds on last season’s Urban Sports trend, but takes on new colour and styling directions.
The cut is short and choppy, or long and smooth, both cuts are completed with an on-trend full blunt fringe. The styling is poker straight, sleek and polished. The colour direction dives into cool berry and red tones.

Trend 3: Koolblond
Pale blonde is an iconic look. Paired with bright red lips, the palest blonde tones remind us of Marilyn Monroe and the glamour of old Hollywood.
Schwarzkopf Professional’s Koolblond look is inspired by the timeless elegance of pale blonde, but it has been given a modern twist!
This season’s palest, iciest blondes take inspiration from the effortless elegance of Scandi style, the palest of pale blonde paired with flared trousers and statement dresses.
The new Koolblond looks are angular, smooth and uncompromising, and exude supreme confidence.
