Salons are back in London and, with our own lockdowns hopefully coming to an end over the next few weeks, we’re looking internationally to see what’s trending in salon chairs around the world.

London salon Brooks & Brooks is outlining the key looks they’re seeing for the new season. While it’s cooling down across the pond as our seasons heat up, these trends remain universal, and with social media making the world that much smaller, always relevant, so we’re looking at them with a keen eye.


“Generally, the hair looks we’ve seen for this coming season have been all the more serene, loose and relaxed, which means we can make an interpretation of them straight into our beauty schedules. It’s something Victoria Beckham addressed at her show, saying ‘it’s worn but still done.’ Hair was inspired by the early 90s; heavy, natural and with a bit of a bend in it,” said Sam Ashcroft from Brooks & Brooks.

In specific trends, fashion, celebrity style and even TV shows are pioneering the looks of the season.


“Mullett and shag-like haircuts are still powering through from SS21. Ella Emhoff’s haircut is undoubtedly one of the haircuts of the moment,” Sam said. “Copper waves – was it Bridgerton? Was it The Queen’s Gambit or Gigi Hadid? This timeless autumnal trend is powering through with soft blush peaches, to fiery reds. We are especially loving Gigi and Florence Welsh.”


“Chic Way to do grey – the revival of Sex & The City will of course bring some mega (and micro) trends through the hair, beauty and fashion industry. More notably is the pearly grey roots Sarah Jessica Parker is showing through her sandy balayage and all-over grey Cynthia Nixon has. Both women look sensational and they are using the grey as a feature not as a cover up,” he continued.

It’s going to be a big season of trends with salons open and booming.
