Auburn Hair Colour
Red hair colour isn't going anywhere for 2023—and hair colourists agree. "Something else I'm starting to see requested a lot in the salon is auburn red shades," says Stelitano. "From red to copper, more guests who have previously had balayage in the summer but now in colder months want richer and warmer tones are choosing these hues. There is definitely a lot more going on with red and guests experimenting with these shades, especially after Kendall Jenner went copper a couple of months ago," he says.
Jordanna Cobella, Wella ambassador and creative director of Cobella Salon, tips bamboo blonde as one of the biggest hair colours for 2023. "Taking inspiration from the calming natural materials such as bamboo and their intricate texture, this light golden blonde features two-dimensional tones of warmer beige and light oat milk, seamlessly interwoven in the hair," she says. "Much like the tweed blonde trend that dominated in A/W 22, bamboo blonde is incredibly popular because the tones are so fluid there are no evident lines," she adds.
The brunette equivalent of uptown blonde, liquid brunette sees impossibly glossy hair that's healthy and shiny. "Super-shiny and glossy hair is going to be a key look in 2023," says Eaton. In-salon glossing services and at-home treatments are key for maintaining that high-shine finish, helping to add depth and gloss to your natural hair colour or add dimension and lustre to coloured hair too.
If you want to take blonde hair darker or brunette hair lighter, then no other hair colour can hold a candle to this trend in 2023. "Candlelit brunette has a brunette base colour featuring golden highlights," says Seniz Alkan at Neville Hair and Beauty for L'Oréal Professionnel. Worn by the likes of Hailey Bieber, Zendaya and Kaia Gerber, this golden colour quite literally glows amber in the sun. Combining rich and warm tones, it complements all skin tones and is low-maintenance, too.
"Across the board, so many of my clients are going darker, and everyone is showing Hailey Bieber as inspo," adds Sara Casiddu, colourist at Hari's for L'Oréal Professionnel. She recommends reverse balayage to achieve some darker lowlights through the lengths of the hair. "The reverse balayage is a big trend and one that's set to stay. From blonde to bronde using lowlights, keeping the face framing lighter but warmer, and finishing with a glossing service at the end to add shine," she says.
