We’ve finally entered a new season as we near the end of year and if 2020 had to be incredibly difficult in almost every conceivable way, at least hair trends, style and inspiration proved they don’t stop even for a pandemic.

Now that we’ve hit September and spring, there are new seasonal trends to inspire you. Our friends across the pond, Room 97, may be heading into sutumn, but the important thing is that, no matter where you are, change is in the air and, with it, a look to fresh and current trends.

Room 97, more specifically Conor Townend from Room 97 Creative, Leeds and Wakefield, inspired us with the latest trends he’s been seeing in England’s salons. Look and learn.

Layered or choppy fringes

With the stagnation of a pandemic it’s a good bet your clients want change, but if they’re scared to go all in with a major transformation, this trend may allow them to have their stylistic cake and eat it too.

“If your clients want an update to their style without losing the length, adding a fringe will instantly revitalise their hair,” Conor suggested. “Ideal for fashion-conscious clients who want to make a statement, the fringe suits all face shapes and textures. Forgot blunt and bold – this season it’s all about the layers and choppy outlines.”

Strong bobs

A never-ending phenomenon, it seems bobs are still majorly in, with constant updates that keep them relevant.

“The bob is timeless and can be classic or edgy, depending on the length and lines. Play with angles to skim the shoulders, or highlight strong cheekbones. Whatever the length, keep it modern with added texture and updated shapes,” Conor said.

Layered shapes

Long hair looks made a necessary comeback in lockdown but, with salons open, those looks can make way for their shapely, layered iterations.

“Introducing clients who are growing their hair to layers will revolutionise the way they see long hair,” Conor said. “Layers will lengthen the shape and add movement to lank hair, the perfect style choice for those growing out their hair for the first time.”

Get the scissors in hand and make sure your clients are totally trending with English style.
