This Spring/Summer, four trends - Visible Aura, Sand Dunes, Beauty Graffiti, and Tango - were revealed at the Beauty Debate, each with its own distinct mood and personality.

  • Visible aura - This trend involves the use of lighter shades, and styles such as straight or wavy, angelic curls to project an ethereal image.
  • Sand dunes - It uses a palette that is soft and light with a warm glow. Slightly darker tones are also incorporated to give a natural contrast to the hair so that it looks luxuriously natural.
  • Beauty graffiti - A tousled hair style that looks naturally gorgeous but at the same time, has a laid-back festival feel to it.
  • Tango - Tango manifests in high drama and precisely groomed updos to enhance strong facial features by using a darker, bolder palette with emphasis on shades with aubergine accents. This style is both graphic and feminine at the same time.
