As we start the New Year (and decade) this is a good time to check what trends has this past year (and January) set for the upcoming season. Spring is going to be all about folk inspiration and embellished heads. Many influential hairstylists and designers such as Guido Palau and Oscar de la Renta bring us the biggest hair trends of 2020.

Statement accessories.

Pearls, crystals and anything shiny to make your head a work of art. Clips and pins become a genderless accessory, according to Palau. Andrew GN and Khaite took this trend to its maximum expression during their spring/summer 20 shows, with big pearled headpieces and pearly pins clipped onto cornrows. On a more day-to-day level, you can slide a pearled clip on, or wear a tiara on your styled hair. It is a classy effortless trend and we are all up for it!

Braids.

Straight from a Little-Women-esque show, this trend is here to stay. Hairstylist Tina Outen gave schoolgirl pigtail plaits a modern update, describing the look as “super messy and strong, yet unapologetically feminine”. They braids have been paired with suits and big collared shirts to complement the often infantilized hairstyle. Showing a powerful but feminine woman, Dior paired the style with wide-brimmed sun hats, given it the folklore vibe. If you are not ready to embrace the full pigtail braids style, we recommend you start with a couple of little braids hidden among your hair.

To better maintain these style we recommend some maintenance, hairspray is always your friend, but if you’re looking for that extra bit of texture or volume, use KiaKnots Leave-in Conditioning Spray.

High shine, wet looks.

If sleek is your style, then this trend is for you. The out-of-the-shower look has been seen everywhere for several seasons now. Wet looking hair, usually styled back with mousse or gel or messy knots are usually the choices. With great style comes great responsibility as maintenance and products are usually the key for this trends feasibility. A good choice is a leave in mousse that dries over time, whilst keeping the wet, shiny look. Pair it with a long cut camel coat and you are ready for February!

Bold partings.

Whether they are in the middle or the side, deep bold partings are coming strong this season. At JW Anderson, hairstylist Anthony Turner stuck to the brief of “Parisian, high quality, sexy undone dishevelled hair” by giving models strict, poker-straight partings. If this statement style looks too daring, try moving the parting to the side and add some volume to it. If it looks too boring on the other hand, you can always stick on some shiny accessories and you have the look!

Low ponytails.

One of our favourite we must say! Effortless, timeless and versatile, the classic low relaxed pony is taking the 2019’s topknots out of the spotlight. Long healthy locks are tied low at the neck, secured with whatever accessory tickles your fancy. Big, black bows are our choice, as seen at Giambattista Valli. This style is particularly wearable if having KiaKnots extensions, since the knots are really easy to hide and the long hair will look amazing. It is as convenient as using a good heat protector and a flat iron at home.

Colour trends.

 

OK, we now know everything about styling our hair this spring, but what about the colour? Well, buckle up, because bright, bold colours are going to dominate this season.

 

Silver blonde with shadow roots

.

If you are not one for keeping up with your colour needs and let your roots grow a bit longer than you should, then check this one out! Blonde with silver undertones that gives body and shine to your hair, with a darker shade of the colour blended into your roots. A real look!

Take a look at one of our latest KiaKnots jobs, silver blonde with a beautiful root blend.

 

Caramel highlights and chocolate tones.

.

Beautiful shiny caramel tones added to a chocolate hair gives you the classic low-key look with an extra twist. Keep your new highlights glossy with a shine spray and accessorise at will for a versatile and very pretty look.

Lilacs and blues.

First ones coming hand in hand with an ashen ombré. Deep jean blue is another popular choice, leaving dark roots blended into the shade. This one is not for the faint of heart! But if you still want a taste of colour or can’t tone your hair down to such cold or ashy colours, Demi Lovato showed us a great alternative with her red dip-dye ends.
