Read through this blog as I share our experience in London and styles we will see here in 2024!

Attending Sassoons Cutting Academy last fall changed my outlook on hair fashion in so many ways. As I observed each hair model for the Sassoon academy I realized so many of these British men and women had their own individual styles. Their clothing was in sync with their hair styles or Vibe if you will. It was inspirational to say the least. Sharing the experience with three of my talented stylists has allowed us to tap into fashion and creativity on a whole new level. 

Nicole thoughts on London experience. 

"I suppose my experience last year could be summarized as magnificent or rather, life-altering. However I still feel like I'm selling it short by using those words. Something while incredible, also, somewhat unexpected, happened to me when I crossed the Atlantic. I was reminded of who I am down to the core of my being. I don't think this would have happened either, if it weren't for the three incredibly talented and courageous women who I had the pleasure of sharing this experience with. We were thrown into a new environment that caters to creatives of all sorts. Challenged on what we believed to be right from wrong. Celebrated for what makes us unique. Lastly, brought closer together, and bonded with such special memories that I know I will cherish for the rest of my life." Nicole

The world of hair fashion continues to evolve in America. Offering a diverse array of styles to suit every personality and preference. From bold colors to avant-garde cuts, here are the top hair trends making waves this year as I see it. 

1. Vibrant Hair Colors:

Bold and vibrant hair colors are taking the spotlight. I have personally seen women in their 60’s & 70’s coloring their hair with fashion colors or adding a pop of  electric blue to neon pinks and everything in between. People are embracing hues that make a statement and reflect their individuality. Whether it's a full head of color or subtle highlights, experimentation is key.

 2. Sustainable Hair Care:
