Trend Spotlight: Autumnal Pastels

Trend Spotlight: Autumnal Pastels

As the weather outside slowly turns from glorious sunshine to slight-less-glorious blustery winds and rain, there’s no doubt that Autumn is here. For any lady who loves a colour change, the A/W season is a great time to try out a new shade or cut.

You might think a pastel pixie cut or colourful bob is exclusive to the brighter months, but Pastels are bigger than ever, with a bit of a twist. Here are the latest autumnal pastel shades we’re loving:

Peachy Sunset


This new smoky peach look has captured our heart with its lovely colour gradation and beautiful fade-out. Ideal for the long bob or ‘lob' looks that are so on trend at the moment, combining peaches and light corals with blondes and darker roots add a warmer tone to the pastel trend.

Ideal when paired with cosy scarves and neutral jumpers, your hair will stand out in all the right ways.

Rooting for Purple

Purple is a fantastic autumn/winter colour every year, but combine an amethyst shade on the roots with a beautiful icy platinum hairstyle, and you've got a brand-new look that combines ice queen with inspirational.

We love this vibrant purple look, especially for a longer pixie or beachy waves, but we also love the light plum colour it will fade to even more – giving the hair more depth and a subtle pastel look.

Go matchy-matchy with purple nails and icy makeup for a high-end, easy to maintain style.

Reinventing Balayage


Forget bleach blonde balayage – this autumn/winter it’s all about the dark-to-pastel transition. Whether you’re looking for a vibrant ombre or a moody melt, a combination of pinks and purples (with a few dark blues thrown in) offers a seasonally appropriate look.

For thick, full curly hair a purple to rose colour melt is the ideal match for a warm jacket and biker boots for the ultimate rock chick look; though this look would be perfect for anyone, especially when braided and made a bit messy.

Using Olaplex with this will keep your hair in top condition for that extra bit of shine.
