Meet The Stylist
Stephanie Whitehead, Creative Director at Athena Hair.

We caught up with the lovely Stephanie, who has been in hairdressing for 19 years, to find out all about summer 2018 hair trends!

What’s popular?

Balayage and ombre effects are still massively current with our clients. I create these looks on a daily basis. They are cost effective as regrowth is not a issue and they look amazing; natural yet creative at the same time.

What colour trends are you seeing for 2018?

Over the last few years we have seen crazy colours for festival looks, with multicoloured-mermaid hair and lilacs and baby pinks being the main trend. For 2018 summer it is all going to be about the peach tones and rose gold. One of the main brands I work with, milk_shake, have just created a new toner for 2018 called Peach Rose and it’s absolutely beautiful.

Which celebrity always nails it with their hair do?

For me, Lucy Hale, is always killing it with her mid length bob. Either worn in a sleek 90s straight style or with a beach wave look and she’s always experimenting with on trend colour which I think is fab!

What is your favourite hair product at the moment?

The milk_shake Glistening Argan Oil. I just love it! I use it on every client, on my hair every day and make sure all my friends and family have one. It’s great for any hair type; it repairs, adds shine, detangles and rehydrates. It’s a real wonder product.
