After a hot summer of tied-up hair and scorching scalps, the coming season brings with it a welcome reprieve. Aveda have hit the nail on the head with this season’s autumnal tones in their new Space collection.
Space is a carefully curated trio of trends: City Smoke, Woodland Retreat and Underground. It stars a palette of edgy, layered, futuristic cuts with unexpected-but-subtle pops of muted colour, juxtaposed by refreshingly androgynous, soft and natural-looking hues that are easy- to-wear – no matter the occasion. Let’s take a look…
The Underground trend features deep, volcanic reds and dark, moody, ashy browns that don’t contrast – rather, they complement each other – and are effortlessly distributed throughout lengths using the curve and contour technique. The result is a subtle blend of featherweight lowlights in a soft and androgynous shape: an effortless “I woke up like this” cut that demands attention.
The Woodland Retreat trend celebrates textured hair; it highlights warm, chocolate-honey, butterscotch-like autumnal tones inspired by the catwalks of Chanel, Dior and Celine, where hair was seen to look natural and personal in contrast to the bold, contrasting styles of the past.
Such hues should be accompanied by a soft, face-framing
fringe – perfect for curls and coils without the need for heat styling.
Presenting a bold mash-up between a bob and a pixie cut, the City Smoke trend places emphasis on the “bixie”: a cut that’s more textured than a bob, but not as cropped as a pixie. It makes a statement, and
the colours are personalised, smoky and smoggy – adding ashy and soft-green undertones to natural, already-there hues.
