All you need to know about the hottest hair trends from the  L’Oréal Professionel Colour Trophy Awards 2018

From candy-floss pink poodle perms to neon yellow highlights and floor-length extensions, our beauty editors reveal the hottest hair trends from this year's L’Oréal Colour Trophy grand Final...

The Perm

If you haven't already heard: perms are back! With everyone from Olivia Munn to Emma Stone rocking them, they're impossible to avoid and enviable to all. A gentler take on the 70s classic - think looser than the classic poodle-do - and perfect for nailing that summer beach look, we don't see them disappearing any time soon.

Canine Inspirations

I don't know about you, but I'm getting SERIOUS Afghan Hound vibes... Ok, so we're not saying that you should go all-out on the extensions (unless you want to!), but while 2017 was all about the 'lob', longer locks are back in a big way for 2018. Add some shape with long layers and wear loose, or channel your inner Ariana Grande and go for a high pony: the options are (literally) endless.

Pink Ambitions

Millennial pink strikes again! With none other than Kim Kardashian herself stepping out with bubblegum hair, we're officially obsessed. A multitude of ways to wear it, go bold with dark roots and bright pink lengths, deep magenta like Demi Lovato or all-over babylicious. Ask your hair dresser for a 'rose blonde' tint if you're looking for something more subtle. Ready made highlights in the form of chalk paint or extensions are a win too.

Accessories Are A Must

Ok, so while the antler/tinsel/crown combo from Percy and Reed might not be the most practical look, it's no excuse to leave your hair looking bare! Accessories are making a huge comeback for 2018 and we personally can't get enough. Think intricate pearl-encrusted pins, silk hair wraps, leather hair-ties, bandannas, Blair Waldorf hair pins and everyone's favorite: the scrunchie! The possibilities are endless.

NEON Dreams

We can't get enough of this NEON yellow look If you've ever wanted highlighter hair, now's the time. The ultimate look for festival season, you've got to have some serious confidence to pull off a look this daring, but you'll be the envy of Instagram if you do!!


Our favourite look of the night (and it just so happened to take the overall Colour Trophy Award!) was this ADORABLE look from Trevor Sorbie. Bold yet wearable, this totally adorable 'do is giving us some serious tomato vibes  Natural redheads: prepare to be the envy of the world.
