Cool toned fruit pastels have been a big hit for some time now, but this season, they’re set to be hotter than ever with nice, ice metallic shades of blush pink, peach and violet taking centre stage.
This picture was created during our recent trip to Bologna, Italy, for biodynamic brand, Oway, where we presented models to an international audience in a show entitled Artigiano (Artisan). If you want to think pink this festive season, visit one of our 11 salons now for a complimentary colour consultation and a new hue in time for Santa.

ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS
This season is all about party hair, and sleek and chic is always the order of the day when it comes to Christmas.
The ponytail is, without a doubt, the biggest hair story of A/W17 and
there’s a lot of flexibility in how it can be worn during the festivities. Slicked back and severe or softer and less structured, there are so many different ways to wear this simple, versatile style, as we saw at Fashion Week. At Loewe, ponytails were worn low at the neck and high on shine, with a clean centreparting that was slicked down with
gel and worn flat against the head. A similarly restrictive ponytail, with no room for movement, was created at Shrimps, where ponytails were worn tight and twisted to look like rope.
Again, a wet-look wax spray created a harsh slicked-back look, with ponytails pinned down to avoid any ‘swish’ factor.

UP, UP AND OWAY
It was a pleasure for the Westrow Artistic Team to be part of the international gathering in Bologna, Italy, for sustainable haircare brand, Oway. During the event I was privileged to be announced as the brand’s Global Education Ambassador. Westrow is known for its dedication to detail in each of our salons and educational academy and I’m looking forward to travelling and educating on a global scale throughout 2018.
