Top 7 winter hair trends

COLOUR TRENDS: Hair colour trends haven't been so wild since the pink days of the '80s. If you're keen to make a statement, primary colours are huge, such as this bright yellow look, dubbed Paris Punk as part of Rodney Wayne's new Handcrafted collection of looks. You can get this on-trend hue without the commitment by using one of the new temporary hair chalks (we like the Body Shop's range).

COLOUR TRENDS: As well as brights, pastels are still popular, such as this silver blonde style with touches of pink and lavender from L’Oreal Professionnel. They’ve dubbed this look ‘sombre’ – a softer, more wearable version of ombre, with lowlights though the ends for a multidimensional look.

COLOUR TRENDS: Getting closer to hair colours that actually exist in nature, red is trending for winter. Last year fiery coppers were popular, and this year burgundies 
and plums are making a statement too. Bold copper was seen on the runway at the recent ID Dunedin Fashion Week (hair by Darryl McNamara 
for the Tamsin Cooper show).

COLOUR TRENDS: If you want a hint of red, but something more subtle, consider rose gold or strawberry blonde, like this soft ombre look from L'Oreal Professionnel.

STYLE TRENDS: This news is not for the timid - pixie cuts are having a major moment. This winning look from New Zealand's L'Oreal Colour Trophy showcases two trends in one - a super-short cut with pastel colour (hair by Rebecca Brent.)

STYLE TRENDS: Instead of going for the chop, you can embrace texture to give your look a modern lift. Braids, such as this fishtail plait from Rodney Wayne's new Handcrafted collection of looks, are easy to do and are now a bona fide style statement (rather than just a last resort). Instead of swinging shiny locks, hair is a bit more lived-in, with matte textures trending (witness the boom in hair powders and matte finish styling products).

STYLE TRENDS: Last year the big donut bun on top was ubiquitous; this year topknots and buns are looser, lower and more casual. The artfully dishevelled looks from the Moochi show at Wellington Fashion Week (styled by Zoe Clark for Redken) perfectly illustrate the trend.
