Layers are a timeless trend that will remain in vogue for years to come. This style amplifies the vibrancy of your hair by removing any excess weight, adding shape and volume as well as texture – it's an unerring choice when considering hairstyle options this 2023! Our Technical Director Bonnie explains, "Layers help with face-framing for both long and short hairstyles”.

Bronde is the perfect shade for those who prefer a more low-maintenance approach to their hair. This blend of blonde and brunette tones, created through balayage and natural highlights, allows you to go longer between salon appointments. Iconic star Hailey Bieber made bronde her signature hue in 2022 - so get ready because it's sure to be everywhere this new year!
