New season, new 'do

If you've been flirting with the idea of changing your hairstyle, now is the perfect time to switch it up.

After all, a new season is fast approaching, fresh looks are emerging and inspiration is abundant.

In order to provide you with some guidance amid the onslaught of options, we consulted some of Australia's leading hairdressers to get their expert takes on the trending cuts, colours and styles for summer 2020.

So, if you fancy a new 'do, keep scrolling for (and prepare to screenshot) the 'it'-looks of the coming season.

BRONDE

Byron Turnbull, Co-Founder and Director of Goldie Sydney:

"If you can't make up your mind over whether to go light or dark for summer, 'bronde' is for you. A warm and glossy look, the main benefits of this hair colour are that it's achievable and low-maintenance, keeping hair super healthy while offering light and shade for pops of colour and brightness."

ASYMMETRICAL BOBS

Anthony Nader, Salon Owner and Creative Director at RAW Anthony Nader:

"An asymmetrical bob with a solid baseline showcases healthy thick ends and you can wear this either poker straight or with a wave. Try changing your part line to deep side part for added drama or [go for] that ever-contemporary, strict centre part."

HIGH-SHINE BEACH HAIR

Joey Scandizzo, Co-Creative Director of ELEVEN Australia:

"This is a really '70s approach to texture. [It's about] creating the same movements through the mid-lengths and ends but instead of a drier finish, using softer, more pliable products with a gloss finish. Poppy Delevingne and Margot Robbie do this so well, with irregular twists or plaits that add interest and a mix of textures. This looks great with soft blondes and muti-tonal shades in neutral, high-shine glossy colours."

THE WET LOOK

Barney Martin, Owner & Director of Barney Martin Hair:

"[We'll see] a new love affair with gel. This is brilliant for fixing low, sleek ponies for a minimalist look. Cue: wet look, slicked back finishes with a 'more is more' approach to gel. The high-shine and no-stray pieces really pare back with the luxe finishing."

FLOATY FRINGES

Anthony Nader, Salon Owner and Creative Director at RAW Anthony Nader:

"If you're considering bangs but don't want to take the full plunge into the deep, try Dua Lipa's floating-over-the-eyebrow solid number. This square shape is flirty but still considered serious when it needs to be on-guard. It's also a length and shape that you can play around with. You can blow it out smooth, so it has a strong presence, or you can piece it out, so it appears soft and choppy. These bangs are rockin'."

FRENCH GIRL BOBS

Byron Turnbull, Co-Founder and Director of Goldie Sydney:

"French girl bobs are coming in hot this season. This haircut is amazing because you can wash-and-wear it. Letting this air-dry is the key to creating amazing texture with this super chic look, and it's great for summer. Hair is all about shorter lengths and keeping things fun this coming season."

BUTTERY BLONDE

Anthony Nader, Salon Owner and Creative Director at RAW Anthony Nader:

"Margot Robbie's hair looks incredible on every red carpet. I'm a fan of her natural, dark root regrowth mixed with strands of caramel highlights to show dimension. [For this look] you don't need [to have] uniform highlights straight from the roots either, as this not only dries out the root area over time, causing hair breakage, but also [because] leaving the roots natural adds extra texture."

THE MICRO FRINGE

Joey Scandizzo, Co-Creative Director of ELEVEN Australia:

"I love this look and how much it can open up a face, it's a look that can work with short, medium or long hair. Maisie Williams looks amazing with this, it opens up her entire face and shows off her eyes and strong brows."

JAW-LENGTH BOB

Anthony Nader, Salon Owner and Creative Director at RAW Anthony Nader:

"Kaia Gerber's jaw-length bob is completely jaw-dropping and needs celebrating. Did we ever think that Kaia's once-trademarked wavy, Californian beach-girl mane would ever be cut to this confident short length? The strong horizontal [finish], which is far from a concave, box bob, just oozes coolness and don't-mess-with-me style. Be aware though, before you take the plunge, however, as you need fine delicate facial features to pull this number off."

THE MONEY PIECE

Barney Martin, Owner & Director of Barney Martin Hair:

"The 'money piece' is a bright frame around the front hairline [which has been] personalised after foiling or lightening. This technique lifts your complexion, makes your colour pop and will grow out very softly, with minimal upkeep or maintenance. We see the money piece remaining a big trend [for the coming season]."

LOBS (LONG BOBS)

Byron Turnbull, Co-Founder and Director of Goldie Sydney:

"Lob season is coming! This look is amazing and great for people who love to wear their hair up, but also want texture, as well as the option to wear it down. [It's] great for summer fashion, keeping the [overall look] cool and chic."

FADE-TO-BLONDE

Anthony Nader, Salon Owner and Creative Director at RAW Anthony Nader:

"When Bella Hadid's hairstylist took to the bleach and peroxide to lighten her once-sable strands, we all took notice with delight. It showed us that dark hair can be lightened beautifully and look natural. The key here is adding different shades of wheat and honey tones throughout, so the colour looks already lived-in, real and far from appearing like a #FakeBlonde."

HAZE GLAZING

Barney Martin, Owner & Director of Barney Martin Hair:

"Haze glazing gives an illuminating sun-lit effect to the hair. To achieve this, we add a warm glaze to pre-lightened hair. The glaze picks up on the pre-lightened areas of the hair [while a] diluted yet warm wash of colour makes the hair glisten and the texture come alive. The palette is made up of a base shade intertwined with a warm glaze tones."

LONG, FACE-FRAMING LAYERS

Byron Turnbull, Co-Founder and Director of Goldie Sydney:

"This haircut is all about amazing long, face-framing layers with a solid baseline to create shape and volume while keeping the hair thick and full. [It's] amazing for summer, has a 'wow' impact and is great for people who love a beach-wave and big hair."

DECONSTRUCTED LUXE

Barney Martin, Owner & Director of Barney Martin Hair:

"Hair is going to be deconstructed but luxe. Lots of post-punk anti establishment soft crops [and] modernised early '90s, [and] soft '60s and '70s fringes with a carefree air and minimal styling involved."
