How to Keep Your Blonde Bright During Summertime


Summertime in the UK is a fun time when the sun peeks through the clouds, and the pebble-strewn beaches invite you for a fun day out. 

Needless to say, as a gorgeous blonde going out in the Sun, you would naturally be worried about keeping your hair blonde and bright. 

At SalonTrusted.com, we want to give you tips and tricks on how you can keep your blonde hair bright during the summer. We will also be listing a few of the key hair products available on our website which you can use to manage your blonde hair and keep it shiny and bright all year long. 

First off, we will mention the tips and tricks, and then we will mention the hair products you can use. Here it goes: 

Tips on How to Keep Your Hair Bright Blonde 

Here are a few tricks for you to use:

  1. Sunscreen for your hair 

Remember that just like your skin, your blonde hair needs protection from the sun as well. Those sneaky UV rays can damage your hair and hair colour. Consider using a UV-protective hair spray or serum. Think of it as SPF for your strands. Simply spray it on before you go out in the Sun. 

The plus side is that most UV-protection hair sprays and serums have beautiful fragrances; so not only will you be protecting your hair but you will also smell nice wherever you go.  

These blonde hair masks, creams and protective sprays will be useful:

  1. Fanola No Yellow Shield Protective Mist 100ml
  2. Fanola No Yellow Thermo Protective Cream 150ml
  3. Selective Professional No Yellow Leave in Spray 150ml 
  4. Amargan Sine & Protect Spray 100ml
  5. Color Wow Pop & Lock Serum 55ml
  6. New Color Wow Money Mist 150ml
  1. Use the magic of toning products with purple pigments

The perfect friend for your blonde hair is the purple toning hair products. Consider it a spa day for your hair. Use it as advised and it will banish all the brassy tones in your hair. It works wonders for blonde hair and it will help you retain your blonde and keep it brighter and shinier.

Some of the most popular purple toning hair products on our website are:

  1. Fanola No Yellow hair products 
  2. Matrix So Silver Purple hair products 
  3. Selective OnCare No Yellow products
  1. Hydrate your blonde hair 

Regularly deep conditioning your hair with masks is a great way to keep your hair hydrated . Masks help your hair by strengthening it and ensuring that it stays fit and healthy. These conditioning masks provide your hair with the necessary nourishment that keeps it shining brighter than the Sun even during the summertime. Always go for the right type of masks that are perfect for your hair type. 

These are some of the best products to protect your hair this summer:

  1. Color Wow Money Mask 215ml
  2. New Matrix Food For Soft Mask 500ml
  3. Matrix Food For Soft Oil 50ml
  4. Biolage All In One Multi Benefit Oil 125ml
  1. Rinse your hair with cool water

Always go for a cool rinse when washing your hair during the summertime, this helps to seal in the cuticles and makes your hair shinier. For an added effect, you can carry the wet-hair look out with your friends too. A cool rinse is always a relaxing and soothing way to quickly keep your hair looking shiny and bright. The added layer of cool water will moisturise your hair too. 

  1. Use coconut oil 

This tropical elixir is the best remedy for keeping your blonde hair shiny and bright during any season. And during the summer, it will help moisturise your hair perfectly since it adds a protective layer which helps when you go out in the Sun. The benefits of using coconut oil on your hair are countless. Not only does it work its magic on dark hair, but it also helps in nourishing brighter shades such as blondes. 

Why not try out Color Wow Dream Cocktail – Infused with Coconut Oil!

  1. Avoid chlorine-heavy pools 

Chlorine is a big no-no for blonde hair. We understand that summers naturally invite you to pools and poolside parties where you may indulge in a dip or two. But swimming in a chlorine-heavy pool for a long duration will damage your hair a lot. The best way to swim in such pools is to reduce your swimming time and to wet your hair with fresh water before you take the plunge. This wetting adds a protective layer to your hair. But it won’t be too effective if you keep swimming for hours at a stretch.

Use the Color Wow Dream Filter after a day at the pool. This product is perfect for anyone that would like to keep their hair colour and/or highlights (chemically and naturally!) fresh, light and bright. It does this by taking away the environmental elements that destroy your lovely colour. This includes traces of calcium, magnesium, copper, iron, manganese, aluminium, and chlorine.

As always, don’t hesitate to have fun with your hair, but always read the instructions on the hair product before using it. 

We are always happy to help you in matters of haircare and beauty. 

In the meantime, enjoy the summer!

  • Bobs, everywhere

There’s a new wave of bobs sweeping Hollywood. Everywhere you look, every other celebrity is donning a bob. There are so many variations to the classic bob that you can witness on the red carpet, movie premiers, and talk shows and events. Some of these are shoulder-length bobs, jaw-length bobs, Italian bobs, choppy chin-length bobs, curly bobs, soft curved bobs, cheekbone-grazing 90s bobs, Pulp Fiction’s Mia Wallace-inspired bobs, blunt bobs, and so many more. 

Here are a few pictures for your inspiration:

This hairstyle is versatile because it works for any type of hair, curly, silky, etc. And you can always switch up the style by trying out a new texture or making it with a new part.

  • The ‘Shaggy’ Look 

If you’ve got curly hair, the classic shaggy style is a great look for the summer. It’s instant, requires minimal effort, and looks flawlessly messy. Some popular variations are short and wild shag, the modern shag, the short shag, the shoulder-cut shag, shaggy bangs, and more. 

The shaggy look is quick and easy, layer it up, or tie it up in a ponytail for that summer heat. It’s easy to handle and easy to style. 

Here are a few pictures to inspire you:

  • The Pixie Cut 

If you have angular or pixie-esque face features, you can don a pixie cut. This very sleek and short hairstyle has been trending a lot for two years now with some of the A-list celebrities showcasing it at major events. Florence Pugh, Zoe Kravitz, Emma Corrin, and more have been seen with pixie cuts that have stolen hearts at movie premieres. 

Since it’s a small and easy-to-maintain cut, it goes well with oval faces, round faces, and even heart-shaped faces. 

Here are a few pictures to inspire you:

  • The Midi ‘Lob’

This is a longer variation of the bob, also called the ‘lob’. For finer hair, and with a good volume, it’s a great hairstyle to wear this summer. It’s easy to maintain and you can keep it at the chin or to the shoulder, it’s up to you. It can be tied back in a ponytail for a fresher look and to beat the summer heat. It has been used to create a flattering and balanced look. 

Many celebrities have been recently seen donning it everywhere, including Zendaya, Sydney Sweeney, Rihanna, and Claire Danes among a few. 

Here are a few pictures to inspire you:

  • The Bangs 

Bangs will never go out of style. They are in this summer as well. The macro bangs have been trending since the Paris Fashion Week, and after the 2024 Grammy Awards, the bangs made a comeback. Celebrities like Lana Del Rey and Anne Hathaway have been seen gracing the bangs at a few award shows. 

The bangs are versatile too, as these can be styled with short hair lengths as well as longer lengths that go down to the shoulders or bust. 

Here are a few pictures to inspire you:

  • Layers 

Long layers are in style and these involve cutting the hair at different lengths to add volume, texture, and movement, all the while maintaining length. 

Last year, we witnessed one-length longer styles, popularly called ‘waterfall layers’, but this year, we have so many variations of the layers seen on celebrities. 

The best thing about the layers is that it is suitable for most hair lengths and hair volume. You can play around and create a look that best suits you. Some popular variations include long layers, choppy layers, textured layers, flippy layers, shaggy layers and more.

Salon Trusted Guide to Damaged Hair and How to Prevent It


SalonTrusted.com believes everyone is entitled to beautiful, healthy, and strong hair. We ensure this is possible by offering you the very best professional hair supplies and products to help your hair stay great.

Many tell-tale signs can help you identify if your hair is getting damaged. If you act timely, you can ensure that the damage is stopped and nurtured back to health. 

There can be numerous reasons for hair damage including excessive exposure to heat, being chemically treated, inconsistent and unhealthy diet, too much brushing, over washing, bleach, dye, stress, and more. 

In this blog, we’ll showcase great hair products that will help you stop the damage, and repair it. You won’t have to worry about how to protect damaged hair. 

Below we will also be comparing the top two hair products we recommend for hair damage. These are the Matrix Biolage Strength Recovery range and the Matrix Biolage Bond Therapy; the former helps in repairing damage done by heat exposure and the latter helps in repairing hair damage caused by overprocessed and chemical treatments. 

The 5 Most Common Signs of Hair Damage 

Here are some of the most common signs to look for when identifying hair damage: 

  1. Frizzy hair 

    You may end up with frizzy hair if you are using the wrong hair products for your hair type. This type of hair becomes unmanageable and is often a sign of hair damage. 

    Frizzy hair can be managed using hair products that are right for your hair type. You can often remedy frizzy hair by simply getting frequent haircuts as split ends are a common occurrence when growing out your hair. 

    Use Biolage Smoothproof Range to help combat your frizz!

    2. Hair turning grey

      If you inherited early greying of hair from your paternal or maternal side, there isn’t much to remedy that. Genetics cannot be altered using hair products. 

      However, a few scientific studies suggest that low levels of copper, zinc, iron, ferritin, vitamin D-3, and calcium may cause your hair to turn grey prematurely. 

      Some of the common remedies for greying hair are taking a balanced diet, using herbs, and regularly taking supplements.

      Better yet why not embrace your hair turning grey!

      3. Coarse or dry hair

        Once again, exposure to heat can also cause your hair to become coarse and dry. This may be due to the haircare devices you use.

        Other reasons may include over washing, bleaching, using hair dyes, and chemically treating your hair with harmful or cheap hair products. 

        If your hair is either coarse or dry we would recommend using Biolage Hydrasource.  

        4. Hair thinning 

          Hair can easily start thinning if you are stressed a lot or if you have a poor diet, especially as you age. 

          Try to practise mindfulness to reduce your stress, and manage your anxiety to stop the triggers.

          How to Treat Hair Damage Caused by Heat 

          If your everyday hairstyles are created with the use of curling wands, hair dryers, and straighteners, you may end up damaging your hair. 

          Heat, if applied carefully, can help you style your hair into wondrous and beautiful styles. But a simple overexposure can damage your hair significantly. 

          At SalonTrusted.com, we offer a solution to hair damage caused by heat. Get the Matrix Biolage Strength Recovery products to nourish your hair back to life. 

          This range of hair products strengthens your weak hair, making it healthy and fresh once again!  

          The active ingredient in the Biolage Strength Recovery products is vegan squalane. 

          The benefits of using this range on your hair are repairing surface-level damage, strengthening fragile hair, and leaving your hair softer and shinier. 

          Get these hair products today at salon prices from our SalonTrusted.com website. 

          How to Reverse Chemical Damage to Your Hair 

          For all the people who frequently dye their hair, colour them, and get re-texturising treatments, we have bad news for you. 

          Harsh chemicals can progressively deteriorate the hair cuticles making them prone to breakage. 

          Fear not! Bond-building products such as the Matrix Biolage Bond Therapy products can help you bring your damaged hair back to life. 

          This range of hair products deeply cares for overprocessed bleached or chemically processed hair via its key natural ingredients coconut oil and citric acid. 

          The benefits of using Biolage Bond Therapy are reinforcement of weak bonds, less hair damage, hair feeling softer, and significantly more conditioned hair.  

          We would recommend using the entire range together and now you can get the range in a bundle at a discounted price so you can give your hair the treatment is deserves – Biolage Bond Therapy Bundle

          A Comparison Between Biolage Strength Recovery & Biolage Bond Therapy 

          Here is a comparison between both Biolage Ranges that we offer:

          Experience:

          The hairstylists and people who have used it have reported smooth locks, softer hair, and less damage after using Matrix Biolage Bond Therapy. Additionally, users have also claimed that their hair seems and feels significantly more conditioned after its use.

          In summary, the Matrix Biolage Strength Recovery targets general hair strength and repair, while the Matrix Biolage Bond Therapy specifically addresses overprocessed hair with bond-building technology. Choose the one that is based on your hair’s unique needs.

          Salon Trusted Guide to Beauty on a Budget


          Being connoisseurs of beauty and hair products in the UK, we understand that these products don’t need to cost you a lot. Not all beauty and hair products are equal – some are affordable, yet effective. In this blog, we, at SalonTrusted.com, will showcase beauty and hair products on our webstore that are affordable, yet deliver the desired results. 

          Commonly, the notion is that any expensive beauty or hair product will get you the desired results. This is why most people openly equate the quality of a product with its high price, hence, they end up going over their budget to buy luxury beauty and hair products. The luxury brands understand this, and they make their products smaller in size to create that sense of exclusivity. This creates a bias among the consumers, who want to add that specific luxury product to their collection. 

          This blog will highlight beauty and hair products on SalonTrusted.com that are affordable for everyone. 

          ‘Beauty on a Budget’ Products

          Salon Trusted’s Guide on how to make hair colour last longer on grey hair


          If you are someone who touches up their grey hair with colour, you can easily understand how frustrating it can be when the shade starts to fade or when your roots start to show. Everyone who touches up their grey hair wants the hair colour to look vibrant, fresh, and popping for as long as possible. If you are unwilling to spend too much time, effort, and money on frequent salon visits, then Salon Trusted can guide you on how to make your hair colour last longer. Here, we will share tips on how to extend hair colour before revisiting the salon, how to make hair colour last longer on grey hair, and how to touch up hair at home – all the while using hair colour products available at Salon Trusted.

          Tips on Extending Hair Colour Before Another Salon Visit 

          One of the best ways to make the hair colour last longer is to take good care of it before and after you colour it. Here are a few tips that can help you in the before and the after of the hair colour application: 

          • Remove Buildup 

          Always use a clarifying shampoo before you start the hair colour process. For scalps that are oily and for scalps that can have dirt or buildup of any sort, the hair colour will be affected. So clear your scalp for the hair colour to penetrate properly. 

          • Wait 24 Hours 

          After you colour your hair, it is better to wait 24 hours before rewashing it. This will give the colour time to settle in and bond with the hair. And when you do wash your hair, go for a sulphate-free shampoo and conditioner that is gentle. Use a shampoo and conditioner that is specialised for hair colour. 

          • Avoid Frequent Washing 

          Frequent shampoo use and washing can strip away the natural oils and hair colour. As a general rule of thumb, simply wash your hair less frequently. Go for every other day, or every third day, or even once a week. If your hair becomes oily or looks greasy, use a dry shampoo to absorb excess moisture. 

          • Rinse with Cold Water 

          Hot water can open up the cuticles and that allows the colour to be washed out faster. So always rinse your hair with luke warm or cold water. This will help the colour stay locked in the hair. 

          • Protect from the Sun 

          Direct sunlight and its harmful UV rays can damage the hair colour making it fade faster than usual. Prevent this by wearing a stylish hat when you go out. If that accessory doesn’t go with your style, use a UV-protective spray whenever you walk out in the sun. 

          • Use Colour-Safe Hair Products 

          Always, and we mean always, use hair products that are colour-safe and designed to work well on colour-treated hair. Regular shampoos and conditioners can strip away the colour very easily. Find the right shampoo and conditioner that matches your shade and go for it. 

          • Avoid Heat Styling 

          Excessive heat from styling tools like flat irons and curling wands can cause your hair colour to fade faster. Minimise heat styling or use a heat protectant spray before styling. 

          How to Make Hair Colour Last Longer on Grey Hair 

          Keep in mind that grey hair is more resistant and is easily faded and also harder to colour. Here are a few tips on enhancing your grey hair with hair colour that lasts longer:

          • Go Full Cover 

          The type of hair colour product you use will determine how much grey you can cover and how long it will last. For the best results, choose a permanent colour, and even a semi-permanent colour too that gives 100% grey coverage.

          • Use Spray or Powder 

          Use a root touch-up spray or powder. If you don’t want to commit to a full-colour service or you just need a quick fix between salon visits, you can use a temporary root touch-up spray or powder that will wash out in one shampoo. These products are easy to apply and can cover greys instantly without damaging your hair.

          • Pre-Treat Your Hair 

          Before applying the hair dye, use a pre-treatment hair product that helps seal the cuticles and prepares your hair for better dye absorption. This will also save the health of your hair and allow the dye to work efficiently. 

          • Choose Permanent or Demi-Permanent Dye 

          Permanent or demi-permanent dyes are better suited for grey hair as they provide longer-lasting coverage compared to semi-permanent dyes. But semi-permanent dyes are better for a quick fix. 

          • Use the Power of Cool Tones 

          Since the grey hair often has a yellowish tint, choosing a cool tone colour such as ash blonde or platinum can help neutralise the yellow undertones. This will naturally make the colour last longer 

          These can be used to add a pop of colour to your hair. 

          • Deep Condition Regularly 

          Grey hair tends to be brittle and drier than normal hair. So deep condition it regularly to keep it hydrated and prevent unnecessary breakage. 

          Touching Up Hair Colour at Home During Winter 

          Winter can be harsh on your coloured hair, as the cold weather, indoor heating, and dry air can make it brittle, dull, and prone to breakage. To keep your hair colour looking fresh and healthy during winter, you may want to touch it up at home using any of the wide range of products available at Salon Trusted. 

          Here are some tips on how to do it safely and effectively: 

          • Choose the Right Shade 

          Select a touch-up hair colour product that matches your current shade or is one shade lighter if you want a subtle change. This way, when you do the touch-up, it would seem natural. 

          • Do a Strand Test 

          Before application, it’s important to do a patch test behind your ear to check for any possible allergies. Also do the strand test to see how the colour will look once it’s done, and to understand how long you need to leave it on. 

          • Use the Right Tools 

          Almost all at-home colours will come with all the required tools you will need for the application, straight from the box. These may include gloves, applicator, and instructions. You will have to use extra tools such as a bowl, brush, clips, comb, etc. Feel free to shop for them on Salon Trusted.  

          • Follow the Instructions 

          Please read the instructions carefully before starting, and follow them as directed. Do not skip any step and don’t leave the colour longer than recommended. Any mishap in this can result in over-processed or uneven hair, damaging your hair. 

          • Section Your Hair 

          Make sure you section your hair using clips or elastics. This will ensure an even application of hair colour. It is always better to start off with sections that need more work, and slowly make your way to strands that only require a light touch-up. 

          • Apply to Roots Only 

          If you are touching up only the roots, don’t apply the hair colour to the rest of the hair to avoid overdoing and overlapping. Apply the colour to the exposed roots and hairline only, with a brush or a bottle applicator. With liquid colours, feather it down with a comb to produce a smooth transition. With spray colour, spray it 4 to 6 inches away from your hair and spray back and forth till the grey is covered. 

          • Leave it On

          Follow the exact instructions on the packaging box or leaflet when it comes to leaving it on. Don’t leave it on for less than the recommended time as it will create uneven results. Also, don’t leave it on for longer than recommended as it will damage the hair. 

          • Rinse and Treat 

          After leaving the colour on for the recommended time, rinse it out thoroughly with lukewarm water until the water runs clear. Then, apply a conditioner or a treatment that comes with the colour or use your own favourite product. This will help seal the cuticles, add moisture, and enhance the shine of your hair.

          How to Choose the Best Cruelty-Free and Vegan Brands in the UK


          Have you ever wondered how to buy vegan and cruelty-free skincare, beauty and hair products? Do you want products from brands that are kind to animals and great for the planet? In this blog, we list down how you can buy the best vegan, cruelty-free skincare in the UK, as well as hair and beauty products. Whether you are a dedicated vegan, just curious about plant-based beauty, or a flexitarian, the following tips and recommendations will help you shop smarter and greener. 

          What to Look for When Buying Cruelty-Free Beauty Products 

          Cruelty-free beauty products means all products that have not been tested on animals at any stage of their production. This holds true for the brand you are buying from as well as third parties that may have collaborated with the brand. As this is highly unethical and unnecessary too since there are now so many alternative methods of testing products and making them safe and reliable. 

          However, cruelty-free and vegan are not entirely the same, as some cruelty-free products may contain animal-derived products such as beeswax. honey, lanolin or carmina. To make sure you’re buying a 100% vegan beauty product in the UK, always look for the certifications and labels from the following authorities: 

          • The Leaping Bunny logo
            This is the most recognised and trusted cruelty-free certification in the world, administered by Cruelty-Free International. It guarantees that no animal testing has been done on the finished product or any of its ingredients, by the brand or its suppliers, anywhere in the world. 
          • The Vegan Society logo

          This is the oldest and most respected vegan certification in the UK. It ensures that no animal ingredients or by-products are used in the product or its manufacturing process and that no animal testing has been done by the brand or its suppliers. 

          • The PETA logo

          This widely recognised cruelty-free and vegan certification is issued by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. It verifies that no animal testing has been done on the product or its ingredients by the brand or its suppliers and that no animal-derived ingredients are used. 

          Additionally, you may visit the brand’s website to check out its official stance on animal testing. Almost all brands that are vegan or cruelty-free, or both have dedicated web pages to show their commitment. If you cannot find a clear stance on animal testing or being vegan, it is safer to avoid that brand altogether. 

          Tips on Buying Cruelty-Free Hair Products 

          For hair care, you may think that it is hard to find vegan and cruelty-free products, but that is not true at all. There are now numerous brands that offer high-quality hair products that are free from all kinds of animal products, and these are not tested on animals either. Here’s how you can find the best vegan and cruelty-free hair products that are suitable for your hair type: 

          • Check the ingredients

          Avoid hair products that contain biotin, silk amino acids, collagen, elastin, or keratin. All of these are usually derived from animals. Instead, look for plant-based or synthetic alternatives that give you the same nourishment and strengthen your hair without harming any living soul. 

          • Shop online for vegan, cruelty-free hair products

          One of the easiest and most convenient ways to find vegan and cruelty-free hair products is to do a simple search on the internet. Sometimes you will end up finding brands that only sell vegan and cruelty-free products. You can also visit online beauty stores such as Salon Trusted. Just filter your search by hair type, product type, and select ‘vegan’ and ‘cruelty-free’.

          • Ask your local salons

          The next time you go to your local salon, ask them to use vegan and cruelty-free products on you. Ask them where to buy these products. They will be happy to recommend products and may even earn commission through affiliate programs. 

          Ingredients to Avoid and Ingredients to Look for 

          When buying vegan and cruelty-free products, it’s important to look for products that are free from animal-derived ingredients. 

          Some common animal-derived ingredients found in hair products include:

          • Keratin
          • Collagen
          • Beeswax
          • Honey

          Instead, look for products that contain plant-based ingredients such as:

          • Coconut oil
          • Argan oil
          • Jojoba oil
          • Shea butter

          Salon Trusted’s Guide to Seasonal Hair and Beauty Trends for 2024


          As we bid adieu to 2023 and welcome 2024, it’s time to refresh our hair and beauty game. From the latest hair and beauty trends to the must-have products, we discuss everything. So, grab a cuppa, sit back, and let us dive into the world of beauty! In this blog, we will be discussing what stylists think will be considered chic next year.

          Here’s Salon Trusted‘s guide to a beautiful 2024: 

          Top Hair Trends for 2024 

          In 2023, numerous hair trends made headlines, from chunky highlights to Bridgerton-inspired romantic braids and curls, Y2K-inspired frosted tips, edgy cuts, and grungy dark colours.

          It’s predicted that the next year will see the rise of several new hair and beauty trends. So here are a few top trends: 

          1. The Baroque Bob 

          It is a modern take on the classic ’50s haircut, inspired by the opulent and voluminous curls of the Baroque era. This style works for all hair types and lengths and can be achieved with a curling wand, texture spray, and hairspray. 

          1. Elevated Updos 

          These are sophisticated and elegant hairstyles suitable for special occasions. The trend focuses on adding a touch of nature and understated glamour to the hair, with accessories like pearls, flowers, ribbons, or clips. You can also play with texture and tendrils (curls) to create a more relaxed and romantic vibe. 

          1. Checkerboard Hair 

          This is all about having fun with hair colour. This trend involves alternating two-toned, colour-blocked looks on either side of the parting. It’s a fun look and an evolved version of the E-girl trend. 

          1. The 90s Layers 

          This look remains popular. Think of long layers and curtain bangs with soft, textured edges paired with a bouncy blowout, as well as adding a big bow or pearly hair accessory to make the look feel elegant and luxurious. 

          1. Bespoke Extensions 

          These are custom-made hair extensions tailored to your hair type, colour, and texture. They add volume and length to your hair without damaging it. 

          1. Mega Volume 

          It is all about making a statement with big hair achieved through blowouts, teasing, and volumising products. 

          1. Lived-In Locks 

          It’s a low-maintenance style that embraces natural hair texture. Think beachy waves, messy buns, and tousled locks. 

          Top Beauty Trends for 2024 

          The beauty industry is constantly changing, and 2023 was no exception. We saw lots of new trends that were both innovative and exciting, from achieving sculpted complexions to new beauty studios to visit. From new ingredients and formulations to new concepts and aesthetics, there’s much to look forward to in the beauty world. As we move into 2024, we can expect to see a continuation of this trend with a few new twists. 

          Here are some of the hair and beauty trends that will make a splash in 2024: 

          1. Sustainable Beauty 

          Sustainable beauty involves using products that are good for your skin and the environment. It means using natural and organic ingredients that are free from harmful chemicals. 

          1. Glowing Skin 

          It’s a trend never goes out of style. It is all about using products that give your skin a healthy, radiant glow. Think illuminating primers, highlighters, and moisturisers to give you the perfect glow from within look. Using the right skincare products and masks can also give you a glowing look to the skin. 

          1. Aura Beauty 

          This trend combines spirituality and ancestral ingredients to create a holistic and harmonious approach to beauty. It’s about using natural and organic products that have a positive impact on the body, mind, and soul, as well as the environment. It’s also about tapping into the energy and vibrations of different colours, crystals, and plants to enhance one’s aura and mood. 

          Top Hair and Beauty Brands for 2024 on Salon Trusted
