When you look better, you feel better! Try one of these trending looks and change up your style with confidence.
Inspired by Pantone's 2020 Color of the Year, Classic Blue; but this creation is anything but an "old" classic! This blue balayage is enhanced using the addition of @Pure Pigments from Goldwell, which gives three times the color intensity and has twice the resistance to fading!
Pantone's 2019 Color of the Year, Living Coral, is still going strong in 2020; its golden undertone energizes and enlivens while still maintaining a softer edge. A customizable color for any skintone keeps this color a winner!
Coral elevates basic highlights for some serious fun - just a hint of this will wash out gradually and pastel hues of pink and orange will continue to perfectly blend. It's a great option for the person who wants to have fun, but still needs to be taken seriously!
Sharp, sleek and above the shoulders. Wear it straight, wavy or freshly slept in! A blunt bob will be a must in 2020.
Try an effortless, summer-inspired bouncy ponytail with a 1960s twist. Make it high, make it full and add a bow for sweetness!
I love mixing foiling and balayage to achieve low maintain dimension, like these trendy rooted blondes. Provides great body and texture for an all-season look!
A classic balayage with golden natural undertones. This dimensional honey blonde is perfect for winter and spring that can transition into a bolder summer look. Great for people who want subtle dimension and natural sunkissed movement.
SOUTH HILL SALON
The "lived in" color trend is all about low maintenance and less trips to the salon. Very ideal for a guest who travels often and is always on the go! Many clients are embracing their natural root color and just adding brightness/highlights to the ends. This color creates a seamless grow out and helps maintain the integrity of the hair. You can see two examples here: one on a brunette and one on a blonde. The brunette is a great warm look for fall, and I love the blonde for winter or summer!
It’s 2020 and people are not holding back when it comes to expressing themselves and trying new things! I have had many clients wanting that rich Rihanna red that's great for fall, and purple is perfect for spring!
Channeling all flappers for 2020! For Sydney's sleek look we used Dream Coat from Color Wow ($28). Dream Coat for Curls ($24) was used for her natural wave, along with Love Touch Shine Spray ($35) from evo to tame down any extra frizz.
A sleek bob on non-rainy days is fun, but on a classic PNW day (or once the humidity starts in summer), utilizing your natural texture is the way to go! No modern day flapper should have to fight her frizz.
A shorter, fuller bob utilizing Carrie's natural wave! A generous helping of Whip It Good Styling Mousse ($29) from evo was applied to damp hair, followed by a diffuser. We finished her style with evo's Haze Styling Powder ($35) to add volume through the root and throughout Carrie's ends for a matte texture.
Instead of cutting an asymmetrical bob, we used a bright accessory to create the illusion of asymmetry. Barrettes, clips and other accessories are the addition for 2020!
Balayage is going strong in 2020; there are so many pretty colors we are working with now. For brunettes it's more about rose tones, and for blondes, it's a little peachy pink. You can keep it so subtle or make it stand out more; it's really up to you!
A mix of tones in your 2020 blonde will help to make it look more natural. A look I love is a good mix of silver, beige and champagne; it's perfect for all seasons, lower maintenance, and it's great if you're looking to enhance your natural medium-to-dark blonde.
IN THE MIX
I'm really excited about new smokey gold hair in 2020. It can be achieved on different hair types and textures, and will even be seen on many brunettes this coming year! It's universally flattering and can be suitable for any skin tone, and that's why I love it!
Sometimes a cool tone can give a flat finish, but with the translucency of the gold, you can achieve the shine everyone is looking for. It requires little maintenance; you can go as long as 12 weeks before retouching the balayage highlights. Or, you could allow them to grow out completely and still transition seamlessly into spring.
These tones can range from light iridescent gold blondes to light to medium gold, and light to medium warm gold hues. Due to the neutral and warm hints on this hair color, every complexion can pull off a buttercream blonde. A perk to the buttery cream and champagne blonde hair color is that you can easily try these hues without having to make a big change. Buttercream blonde is subtle, warm and wearable throughout every season, you can transition this due form fall to winter and even spring into summer. While this hair color trend can be done on darker hair, it works best if you have a blonde base to begin with. On your preferences and complexion, you can customize the buttercream blonde balayage that works best for you style.
Bob styles are a great choice for older women because they tend to look good on all face shapes. I love this long bob for her because it’s easy to manage - a round brushed look can never get old!
Men loves messy curls, but also wouldn’t mind a bit of controlled gloss in their hair. I love this look because it’s so versatile: you can wear it down, rocking a man bun, half-up, or a ponytail.
SOUTH HILL SALON
In 2020 I see a lot of creamy and buttery blondes headed our way, especially in springtime! For this creamy look, a combination of foil and babylights were used through the top section and balayage for the rest. This allowed for a very soft top section and bolder ribbons of color throughout the rest.
If you’re thinking about getting highlights for the first time, this buttery blonde look is the way to go. It shows off the movement in her haircut, and enhances her natural color without adding maintenance.
SOUTH HILL SALON
Blonde will always be trendy and with the correct tone, can work for anyone! It's great to switch up tones and brightness depending on the season. I try to explain that the best tone for most people is a French vanilla, because it's the perfect mixture of warm and cool. I also recommend Goldwell BondPro treatments to every blondie out there; it deeply nourishes, strengthens and prevents breakage so hair is left looking and feeling significantly healthier.
Hair extensions have really been blowing up on social media. They're the best and easiest way to get fast volume and length, and the tape-in extensions we have are very easy to take care of at home. Extensions are great for any time of year but I think best during fall or winter when it's cooler out. Even think about adding different colors to get dimension!
Bye bye Red! Hello Pink!
I love it because a blue undertone, hot pink lip, looks good on pretty much anyone!
BYE BYE RED!
Instead of going with the same ol’ black or brown smokey eye, brighten it up!
I love it because you can have a summer sunset on your eyes or the autumn leaves...can definitely be worn for any season.
BRIGHTEN' IT UP!
It was all about the neon eyeliner in 2019 but not for 2020! Pastels!
I like it because it’s something that will give some pop without looking overly dramatic.
A fresh take on the classic cat eye, this trend is especially helpful for defining and uplifting momolids and hooded eyelids. Following the shape of the eye, draw your liner in the middle of the lid or just above the crease, sweeping out slightly at the end. This creates the illusion of it floating above the lashes, uplifting the edges of the eye and establishing the crease.

Instead of spending time trying to remove extra hairs, embrace and include them! First, use a spooly to brush all the hairs inward and upward. Then, add a subtle backdrop by applying a lighter brow powder to the inner end of your brow and slightly above the natural brow with a wedge brush. Finish the effect using a fine-tipped brow pencil to draw short, thin lines up and out creating the illusion of individual hairs.
FEATHERED FULL BROWS
The trend of overly sculpted, bronzed contouring that can leave you looking drab has passed, and Pink has made its entrance! Choose a bright pink blush as a subtle way to incorporate a pop of color to refresh and revitalize your complexion. Apply the blush starting on the apple of the cheek, then sweeping up toward the temple and hair line. Complete the look by blending the blush into the outer edge of your shadow and brow bone.
