Autumn/Winter Hair Trends 2020


Quotes from Simon Hill, owner of SESH Hairdressing and WELLA guest artist

This autumn/winter it is all about remaining true to your natural hair (with a little help from your hairdresser). For colour I think we will see lots of natural tones and face framing techniques to brighten your own colour and add depth and dimension to your hair. 

For brunettes it is time to play around with lighter pieces of colour added subtly throughout your hair to give movement and body. 

For blondes the focus will be on different tones to add shine and a natural finish – moving away from platinum block colour and towards sun kissed baby lights.

In terms of styling, disco waves are a look to watch out for this AW! Think 70’s style volume with lots of height and texture throughout the hair. Using a small straightening iron to wrap the hair around works best to create this style. Once styled, use your fingers to tease the curls out and backcomb where necessary to create that voluminous finish.


Haircuts for AW20 are all about precision and sharp edges. During lockdown everyone’s hair grew beyond the norm and as a result there is a crazing to create shape in the hair with a nice, clean cut. This is my favourite hair cut to create with nice straight, sharp lines that really bring out your facial features.
