Product Overview

What do the experts say?

Raeesa of Raeesa International:

2021-2022 - Sunlight and Rose Gold Hues

We are seeing a shift toward lighter, more golden tones. Whether it’s a full head of babylights or balayage, it’s all about sunkissed shine. I have seen a big shift toward more natural looking hues across Europe, with illuminating shades like Melted Pecan, Honey Chestnut and Champagne Blonde popping up on most catwalks.

There is a strong resurgence of rose and auburn hues, with a fresh twist (no doubt influenced by The Queen’s Gambit). Think Glowy Apricot, Peach Cobbler, Copper Flame and our firm favourite -anything in the rose gold spectrum.

A great balayage placement can extend periods between salon visits, saving money versus opting for a full head of platinum babylights or thicker highlights.

One of our favourite low-maintenance blonde looks is "Greige Blonde". It is an almost flaxen, golden beige with sandy tonal highlights that doesn’t require a lot of upkeep and complements almost all skin tones.

Cerése Bouwer, owner of Cerése Hair Design Hillcrest KZN and KAO Brand Ambassador for Goldwell South Africa: Warm Blondes, Golden Shine, and Money Pieces The 70's has made an exciting comeback in 2021, hair color trends swing between grounded tones and vintage brights, blending seamlessly together to create a harmonious flow. Haircuts are soft and shaggy with no sharp lines or edges.

In terms of blonde, it’s Warm and more Warm! This Summer it's all about honey, strawberry and golden tones. Warmer blondes are my absolute favorite as they reflect light and therefore appear lighter, brighter and shinier. So say goodbye to cooler ashy blondes!

For budget-conscious clients, suggest they go for hair colors that are lower in maintenance. Work with your client’s natural color and bring it back to life with glossing / toning services. (Goldwell Colorance is a great color range for these services!) Balayage and Foilyage techniques are perfect for a sun-kissed look that won't require too frequent visits to the salon to maintain. Chunky highlights are back, and the money piece is a great technique to create some bright contouring around the face, perhaps with a customised shade of blonde to compliment your client’s skin tone, and it’s not costly to maintain.

Fatima Sayanvala of Hijabella Hair Studio: Undone Blondes, Toffee Tones and Bright Vivids I have noticed that clients have started to prefer low maintenance shades such as an undone blonde. They want that lived-in feel and minimal upkeep, changing from the platinum look to a more natural honey blonde or buttery blonde along with subtle highlights instead of a full foil. Darker shades of blonde are becoming more preferable over lighter blonds too.

I am seeing a lot of ladies coming in requesting the warmer blondes, toffee tones & coppery reds with softer face framing pieces, as well as a lot more requests for brighter vivid shades. Ladies are welcoming the bolder colors, trying out pinks and purples etc. As travel is still difficult for many, remember that new hair is as good as a holiday!

Corinne and Fabio Macchia of Shag High Voltage Hair: Violet Gold, the Blonde Journey, and Great Maintenance Products This season we have seen so many playful blondes. They want to come out and explore. More and more blondes are enjoying the Regrowth look but still having the popping money piece around the hair line.

The violet gold collection has been a big winner for me as you truly get the best of both worlds. The violet gold creates a cool blonde and the gold creates light. Don’t be afraid of the gold, peeps!

We do have clients who come in saying they just can’t afford being blonde anymore, and are thinking of going darker. We advise them against this as blonde is a journey and it just took us six months to get them the correct colour!

Instead, I normally suggest that we do a good half head of scattered baby lights to break the previous blonde line and tone it down with a good darker blonde. The maintenance on this is so minimal!

For my brunettes, reds and blondes I always recommend that we look at great aftercare for the colour to last longer. There are some really incredible, professional colour-depositing masks on the market. These are a winner for any colour!

I pray for a successful season for all the incredible stylists of South Africa. Love what you do and never work a day in your life!

Betsy Giani-Pieterse of Tint Colorlab: Creative Pink Pops and Truly Healthy Blonde Locks I am seeing a lot more guests experimenting with creative colour, especially lots of pinks in all depths and levels. Trying something fun by adding Creative or Fashion color is a way to change their look without having to do something extreme that they might regret! Talk to your guest about adding a pop of color for summer. You’ll be surprised how much they will love it.

From pastels to vivids, from demi to direct - there are so many ways of doing a fashion color that can last from 1 week to 10 weeks.

We have so many amazing products on retail to help care for our blonde bombshells that I have to say there really isn't any excuse to not have incredible healthy blonde locks. Encourage your clients that what is super important is keeping hair at its healthiest by using the correct homecare and regular treatments.

For clients on a budget I often suggest a balayage or a root smudge as those colors have softer demarcation lines when growing out, and can be maintained with only a touch up. You can switch up a whole look by simply adding a "Money Piece” to the hairline.

I love to be part of this incredible journey of new discoveries of what we can do with hair and colour!

Beach waves and Sandy beige or warm blondes. We’re moving away completely from the incredible light, grey or ash blondes. We’re going into the soft face-framing baby lights all in a beige and sandy tones. No more of the whiter and brighter colours.

With your fashionable hair trends being soft and natural colours and styles, it’s becoming extremely cost effective for clients because it’s still fashionable to have a natural balayage technique in your colour. And with its natural tones, people don’t have to spend extra on keeping their blondes white. The “silver shampoos” are doing it enough justice to keep away the copper tones. Even though some clients are cash strapped, these colours alone are cost effective.

Thomas Hills, Director, TH1 Hair, reveals his Hair Colour Predictions for SS21


Fluorescent lit up the runways last season, and this season the trend was intensified to an all-over glow. Here hair complemented the psychedelic style of the clothing, for some laid back 70s hippy chic. I created this look as part of my Wink collection, and I predict that clients will look for the endless possibilities by switching up their colour using more creative pastel tones for SS21, in a bid to bring lightness into the new season.


My love of textured hair is no secret, and while I’m a big fan of how texture can help lift and dominate a style, I also love how colour can be used to truly accentuate the look. I predict highlighted and coloured curls will be big this season, on both European and Afro hair, with clients embracing their natural hair texture, and highlighting select curls to really enhance their natural curl pattern for full effect. I created these faded pastel-coloured curls with the movement in the picture really showcasing just how bold this style can look. I predict this will be a huge hit this forthcoming season.


One of the surprise colour hits of the new SS21 season was the inky black hair colour trend. Usually associated with the darker, winter months, the trend was showcased at a host of seasonal shows where the easy breezy colour palettes of seasons past faded into more muted tones – perhaps a visual representation of 2020. I created this super dark, rich global colour for this look from my Wink collection. I love the solid, yet one-dimensional, display of bold blue-black, worn – as it should be – in a sharp strong cut for a serious style.
