We all know the Sunshine Coast is a haven for sun kissed hair. Gorgeous blondes, brunettes and luscious locks that scream ‘I woke up like this’. Our relaxed style in comparison to Melbourne or Sydney is our own stamp on the beautiful chilled lifestyle we enjoy. We Sunny coasters rock a messy bun like no other with minimal French rolls in sight. Now don’t get me wrong, while we love the carefree life, but I know that we also take great pride in our manes. For hairdressers like Evalyn Parsons, their salons are rarely known for quiet days especially when a new season is upon us. Winter brings us out of our comfort zone and suddenly we feel like a change. Out with the old and in with the new. So what’s on trend this winter you ask? I spent the afternoon with the team from Evalyn Parsons to find out what is on the menu for winter.
As I arrived in salon and settled in with a pot of green tea and a brownie I quickly discovered that even in winter, ashy blondes are still the most requested colour. Although not a new trend, balayage is also the number one service provided, with clients opting for low maintenance colours that give great tones and require less maintenance and trips to the hairdresser.
A big trend that is making a comeback is the pony tail. Yes, you heard right, the messy bun is out and the ponytail is in. Sleek and textured, the pony is one look you will be seeing on runways everywhere.
So what celebrity look are most clients requesting? Goodbye, celebs! Pinterest and Instagram have replaced requests for the ‘Rachel’, with women arriving to their appointment armed with images saved from social media. Interesting, I thought pondering about my Jennifer Aniston days or my most fab look the ‘pob’.
So are our must haves? Oodles of moisture. Time to change your routine and start hydrating. Just as we do with our skin care routine we need to hydrate our locks and keep them in tip top shape during winter.
While I was in the salon, I thought it was only fitting I stayed for a winter makeover myself and took the opportunity to explore my darker side with a fresh new brunette look.
