Had you asked us at the end of last year – that time when you go from listening to “All I Want For Christmas Is You” until you cry tears of eggnog to half-pretending you finally want to start drinking more water – we couldn’t have predicted what 2020 would look like. There were countless trend predictions, from makeup to nails, but our hands-down favourites have been the hair colours.

How the year unfolded wasn’t exactly as we’d imagined, but whether you were itching to make a subtle change or wanted to try something dramatic, there has been a hair-colour idea out there for you. The biggest theme, according to celebrity colourist and Matrix brand ambassador George Papanikolas, was “bold, strong tones with seamlessly blended highlights,” but there were a lot more flooding our feeds as the months flew by.

Ahead, we asked a handful of pros – including Papanikolas, colourist Karissa Schaudt, Redken brand ambassador and colourist Cassondra Kaeding, and more – to identify the biggest hair-colour trends that have been everywhere in 2020. As for everything else you wanted to achieve, well, there’s always AquaAlert.
