Hair Dressers – Trends In The Industry
People are still reeling with the effects of the recent recession and will still be looking for bargains in 2010, and this goes for those trips to the hairdresser as well. Many are opting to colour their hair at home, although there are still those who prefer to leave this in the hands of the professionals.
As far as hair colour goes, highlights will still be popular all over the world, although this year will see softer, understated highlights – this will give the hair that expensive shine – instead of chunky, bold colors. Colour trends in the hairdressing industry for 2010 are sure to be exciting and mind blowing!
Personalised products will come to the fore this year as well. Hair care giants are sure to bring in numerous personalised, prescriptive hair products this year. Featured products will be those offering the client more than one solution for their specific hair type. 2010 will be geared towards brilliant service, and offering clients take-home products that are perfect for their hair type.
With people all over the world becoming increasingly environmentally conscious, natural hair care will become extremely popular. This year will see hair salons world wide offering all types of natural hair care available. 2010 will see hairdressers as well as trends in the industry becoming more environmentally conscious – as far as hair care is concerned, that is.
Then there is the question of salon space. Salons up to now have always ensured that all necessary equipment is available, with some strategically placed plants, comfortable chairs, and numerous magazines for their clients to browse through. However, 2010 is going to see salons going that one step further by including a consultation area in their salons. This is to allow clients to have one-on-one consultations with their professional hair stylist, to ensure that the client and the hair stylist as well, will know exactly what the client wants and needs.
Whether it is to have a completely new hairstyle, or a terrible mistake fixed that the client has made by trying to colour her hair at home, salons have realised that having an area for consultation is a lot better than having the client trying to explain her needs as you start washing her hair!
As far as hairstyle trends go, curls, and lots of them, are going to be the in thing in 2010. Structured or soft, they are going to gallop ahead of styles that are flat and straight. Of course this doesn’t mean that straightening irons should be dumped, but rather used in a different way. Straightening irons are perfect for creating a head of curls, instead of being used to straighten the hair. 2010 will also see salons stocking up on a range of various sized curling tongs to create those perfect curls.…
