Ruksher Malik, Co-founder of Pastels Salon Dubai shares 2020 hair trends, one of which was spotted on J.Lo at Super Bowl


When you think of the past decade, balayage and beach-y hair spring instantly to mind but as we start 2020, there has been a seismic shift in hair trends.

After several years of platinum shades reigning supreme, there is a definite return to darker shades with warm, rich blondes and chocolate browns becoming the statement colours du jour.

For colour chameleons, switch your pastel shades for a neon hue – a small pop of colour will work well with athleisure wear.

The days of beachy waves with straightened ends are over. Instead, say hello to bouncy glossy curls. Roller sets with a gentle brush out and a good shine spray are must-haves to pay homage to 70s to 90s glam. For those who can’t bear kissing goodbye to boho, the long Shag is THE haircut of 2020. Featuring curtain bangs, tons of face-framing layers and long razored ends, the long shag is a great way to look effortless while still maintaining an urban bad-girl edge. This cut works best with your natural texture, so you can forgo the blow-dry.

Bobs, lobs, and every variation on the chic little French cut were the rage but it’s time to grow your mane out again and take inspiration from our two favourite Jennifers – Aniston and Lopez – who like their signature hairstyles are experiencing somewhat of a career renaissance.
