Heading into 2021 we’ve composed a collection of this year’s colourful delights and top hair trends from our Affinage Professional salons across Australia and New Zealand.
Pastel pink hues were a huge hit and continue to be a strong glamorous presence with a whimsical feel. Yet the latest trending hair colours are the rich, bold, golden copper tones colourists are obsessing over on their social media pages. Icy cool or warm balayage blondes will always be a popular colour in the Australian and NZ hair industry and we have no doubt this trend is here to stay.
#1 PINK PASSIONS & FAIRYFLOSSCelebrities have tried it; we’ve tried it & we know a lot of you have tried it. We can bet it’s on a lot of hair colour bucket lists and why wouldn’t it be, it’s a colour good enough to eat by @TheHairArtistryRoom, Bethania QLD.
