We’ve all heard that blondes have more fun, but what you may not know is that the phrase comes from a Rod Stewart album … way back in 1978! If you’re not counting, a cool 42 years have passed since then, and so you may be shocked to discover that a hot colour trend for 2020 is boldly brunette! Don’t believe us? Check out these celebrities and their brown hair colour styles that are proving that brunettes really do have the most fun.
1. Vanessa Hudgens
You may recall her from High School Musical, but even if you’ve seen her since then, it’s her nearly-jet-black hair that may have left the strongest impression.
No more! At the premiere of Bad Boys For Life just a few days ago, Vanessa turned up looking not only stunningly beautiful but absolutely delighted with her new caramel hair colour. Some say it’s the perfect way for her to start a new chapter after splitting with boyfriend Austin Butler, but we just think it looks amazing.
2. Rachel Bilson
Another celeb who has kicked off 2020 by celebrating the beautiful light brown hair colour trend is Rachel Bilson, who debuted the look at the Golden Globes.
The fresh highlights may be golden, but the American actress’ style is actually proof that brown hair colour is here to stay in 2020.
3. Katherine Heigl
Think of Katherine Heigl. The actress and model in your mind are very much blonde … but not anymore! For her new Netflix series Firefly Lane, Katherine has done an amazing U-turn by debuting a stunning brunette.
But it actually isn’t her first flirtation with brown. In 2016, Katherine opted for light brown hair colour with blonde highlights, and a few years before that, she had an ash brown hair colour with a pixie cut.
4. Reese Witherspoon
Another actress who is most definitely “Legally Blonde” in your mind is Reese Witherspoon. But when Entertainment Weekly put her on the cover with Jennifer Aniston to promote their new series The Morning Show, there’s something you can’t help but have noticed – they’re both brunettes!
But we’re pretty sure Reese will revert to blonde again when Legally Blonde 3 comes out in 2020! It’s a pity because we think she looks incredible with a beautiful light brown hair colour.
Anyone who thinks brunette colour styles lack pizzazz hasn’t met the following ladies. We sometimes like to call it ‘bronde’, because it blends the best of blonde with the best of brunette. Others call it ash brown hair colour, but whatever it’s called, we’d like to give the gold medal to the singer Ciara.
However, ash brown is a favourite of names including Taylor Swift, Gigi Hadid, Jessica Alba, Khloe Kardashian, and many others – so why not give this beautiful hair colour a whirl in 2020?
The final word: give brown some love in 2020!
So if you said goodbye to the brown hair colour trend many years ago, 2020 is a brand new chance to jump back on the brunette bandwagon! Ask the amazing master hair colourists at Lily Jackson to show you some of our favourite brown hair colour options, all the way from ash and light honey brown to caramel, dark chocolate and beyond. Our mission is to make you fall in love with being a brunette once again, so let us know what’s your brown hair fantasy is for 2020!
If you’re anything like us, you have two voices in your head. One is screaming “Omg! How on earth is it 2020?!” while the other joyfully exclaims “Yay! New haircut!” The coolest thing about those ever-changing hair trends is that there’s always another one around the corner – and no matter what style you choose, there’s always new hair waiting to sprout so you can start experimenting yet again.
So whether it’s something familiar, a retro revival, or something new entirely, the new year is the perfect opportunity to experiment with new styles. 2020 is set to be the year of relaxed styles with bold and blended colours creating effortlessly stylish haircuts. Get ready to be inspired! By the time you’ve looked through our 2020 hair trends you’ll be booking an appointment with your local hairstylist:).
2020 Hair Trend #1 The Asymmetrical Bob
When you’re ready to live on the edge why not start with your hair!! We love the shorter, bolder asymmetrical, disconnected bob hairstyle that our beautiful reception angel has gone for in the pic above!
A bolder, more fun statement than the classic bob, the asymmetrical version has hair longer on one side than the other. Customise it for your taste with curly hair and colour.
2020 Hair Trend #2 Red Hair Colours
Only 1 to 2 percent of the population has naturally red hair, but that doesn’t stop the rest of us achieving the same look as Rumer Willis, Isla Fisher or Amy Adams. Although there is plenty of colour competition these days, the many different shades of red hair continued to be among the most popular choices into 2020.
2020 Hair Trend #3: The Uncut Haircut
It’s a hairstyle trend that looks like it has grown out – the shape still looks great, it has texturised ends, and lots of movement and shape. It’s not a bad haircut but rather a great haircut that has seen the passing of time.
Sitting between the ear lobe and shoulder, it should be noted that the uncut haircut is NOT the same as just letting your hair grow out. When your hair grows out, your hairstyle naturally loses shape as your hair grows at different lengths. You still need shape and balance and loads of texture and only a good haircut will help you manage this look well.
2020 Hair Trend #4: Hidden Extremes In Colour
This hairstyle is worn by someone with natural looking colour all over, but sporting some extreme colour underneath the top layers – like a strong vivid colour.
This style can be enhanced by undercuts and is perfect for the person who wants something bright and creative but needs to maintain a certain level of professionalism at work.
2020 Hair Trend #5: Tribal Braiding
With summer braids always on trend, tribal braiding is closer to the scalp – but the style is definitely not “Heidi of the Hills”.
There is something more visceral about tribal braiding and you can personalise the look by adding different coloured ribbons, coloured hair strands and being more organic in the way the braids are laid out. Think more American Indian or African corn rows or warrior goddess braids such as those worn by the Mockingjay in the Hunger Games.
2020 Hair Trend #6: Ash Blonde Hair
Ash blonde hair colour is essentially light blonde with a grey or ‘ash’ tint. When it comes to trending hairstyles and colours, ash blonde is certainly popular right now. There are plenty of celebrities with fine examples including Ashley Benson, Cara Delevinge and Taylor Swift.
2020 Hair Trend #7: Floppy Boy Cut
This hairstyle trend is great for wavy or curly hair for both men or women. It’s reminiscent of 90s men’s haircuts without the short back and sides. This hair cut is long on top, and carries more weight on the edge and sides.
2020 Hair Trend #8: Close Crop
The close crop means shaving your head to a level 2 – which is really close to the scalp. Add extreme colour on top and you’re close to the on-trend look.
The upkeep is quite high, but you can pretty much change your hair colour every six weeks – and that’s a lot of fun.
2020 Hair Trend #9: Silver Hair
Last year, we saw a lot of dirty pastels and grey hair colour trends – but for 2020 it’s all about bringing the shine back. We’re starting to see a lot of requests for silver hair, which is not to be confused with platinum blondes.
Super shiny, matte grey hair gets an upgrade into something a little more magical. We’re loving the hand painted balayage colouring with the slightest root fade, and purple shampoo is a must (try Oribe Silverati Shampoo).
2020 Hair Trend #10: Rose Gold Hair
We can’t get enough of these rose gold hair colour ideas, and we’re not the only ones! This hair colour trend is almost strawberry blonde but with a little more pink. It’s a colour that’s a beautiful change from the usual dirty pastels. It’s luminous and shiny and so attractive and feminine on any haircut.
Rather than an all-over roots to ends colour, we’re loving darker roots with a quick transition to rose gold. Lasting luminous rose gold is best achieved using Wella Professionals colour.
2020 Hair Trend #11: Curls, Curls, Curls
Despite the never-ending requests for keratin smoothing treatments and permanent hair straightening, a small army of women is saying “yes” to flaunting their natural curls.
The key to every beautiful hairstyle is a great haircut, and curly hair needs a specialist who knows know how to create shape without hacking senseless layers into the hair or doing the usual curly bobs. Curly hair is best cut dry – book in for one of our bespoke curly hair dry cuts.
The biggest mistake with curly hair is brushing it – just don’t! Bring out your curly hair best with insanely amazing products like Oribe Curl Control Silkening Creme for soft curls with some hold. If you want curls with a little more staying power and oomph, then you can’t go past the Oribe Curl Shaping Mousse. Forget crunchy tacky mousse’s of the 80’s – this mousse is amazing.
Hairstyles in 2020 – Get On Trend Today With Lily Jackson
A new year means a fresh start, new beginnings – and a bold new style for your hair! The hair trends we’re spotting are extreme and exciting, the textures are fresh, the do’s and cuts are un-done, uncut and easy. No matter what takes your fancy, the haircut and hair colour trends 2020 savvy clients are choosing can all be done at Lily Jackson – so will you be giving one a try next time? Let us know in the comments and we’ll see you soon.
If you put 100 random people off the street into a single room, how many of them do you think have a naturally red hair colour? Twenty five? Ten? Five? Not even close.
Actually, only 1 to 2 percent of the population has naturally red hair, caused by a mutation in the MC1R gene that produces the coolest pigment in the world – pheomelanin.
The result? As stunning as it is stunningly rare. But that rareness doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of shades of red hair atop heads everywhere you look. So what’s the deal?
Well, it wasn’t too long ago that people with red or ginger hair colour might have been very tempted to colour it the more ‘standard’ brown or blonde in order to fit in.
But although there is plenty of colour competition these days, the many different shades of red hair continued to be among the most popular choices into 2020. That was also true at Lily Jackson, where our trend-conscious customers kept strolling into Sydney’s best women’s hairdresser to let our red hair colourists work their magic!
So when it comes to the most stunningly beautiful types of red hair, want to know what inspired Lily Jackson’s hair colourists? Answer: The celebrities who rock that red hair colour the best.
1. Amy Adams
The double Golden Globe winner’s soft, copper hair colour is the perfect complement for her porcelain-like skin.
2. Isla Fisher
Borat may love Pamela Anderson’s blonde locks the best, but in real life, he is married to the stunning Isla Fisher – whose naturally red hair colour looks stunning in a subtle ombre style.
3. Debra Messing
Is there anyone who can rock a bright auburn hair colour with more style than the star of Will & Grace? Believe it or not, her original dark red hair colour was actually a colour stylist’s mistake, but we absolutely love it!
4. Rumer Willis
Perhaps you recognise her better with a dark or perhaps burgundy hair colour, but Bruce Willis and Demi Moore’s daughter tried on an almost orange-red hair colour with her short style in 2019. It was the perfect demonstration that all types of red hair can really work if executed well.
5. Emma Stone
There’s only one thing brighter and bubblier than the beautiful Emma Stone – and that’s her bright, bubbly and ginger hair colour. It’s hard to believe that she was born blonde, but many shades of red hair work better than you could imagine on people with fair skin.
6. Anna Kendrick
Unlike the fair Emma Stone, Anna has a warm medium skin tone that looks the best with a dark red hair colour.
Did we miss your favourite celebrity who gave the various red hair shades the coolest reputation in 2019? Honourable mentions go to Julianne Moore’s neutral auburn hair colour, Julia Roberts’ red balayage highlights, and the way Christina Hendricks is always mixing it up to keep her red hair colours eternally fresh.
The skilful and experienced hair colourists at Lily Jackson create the most beautiful looks every single day, matched perfectly to your features, personality and lifestyle. So no matter which shades of red hair have caught your eye, give Sydney’s best hairdressers a call for advice or make a booking today.
Did you know that Britney Spears has just gone from brunette to blonde? “Maybe blondes do have more fun!” she said on Instagram. Also jumping on Instagram this month has been the ‘IDGAF’ singer Dua Lipa, who went from blonde to honey-blonde. Megan Thee Stallion, an American rapper, appeared on the cover of Paper magazine with an amazing half blonde/half bright red look, while Reese Witherspoon’s daughter Ava has chosen 2019 to go baby pink. Are you getting the idea? 2019 has been all about trying something different with your colour – but are you game? If you do feel like jumping in at the deep end, how about dipping a pinky toe in first? With a little help from your smartphone, you can do it right now by downloading a hair colour changing app.
If using your phone to try a change hair colour app sounds exciting, here at Lily Jackson we are one step ahead of you! Our Best Womens Hairdresser in Syndey have road-tested the most popular change hair colour app options for you, and we’re here to present our findings.
What on earth is a hair colour changer app?
In a nutshell, a hair colour app is exactly what it says on the tin: an app that changes your hair colour at the press of your smartphone screen! Perfect for completing avoiding hair colour change regret, a hair colour app not only allows you to try a new colour on for size before taking the dramatic plunge, you can also try a dramatically different haircut style, like a pixie cut – without ever going near a pair of scissors.
Ever sat in the chair, paid good money, and walked out of the shop with the horrible realisation that your cut doesn’t suit your face, shape, personality or skin? This latest VR technology means you’ll never feel that way again because the best hair colour changer app is so super-realistic.
Of course, consult with your local hair colourist and discuss your ideas and goals before you commit :)
Here are our top 5 change hair colour app options.
1. Hair Zapp
The great thing about apps is that you can generally try them before buying the premium features. Hair Zapp is a great example of that, with no less than 500 different hairstyles to try for free. Another great feature allows you to post your new do on the app and get real-time feedback from other hair colour app users.
Like all these apps, all you really need to do is take or upload a photo of yourself, and then let the technology works its magic. Hairstyle Makeover is particularly good for trying completely different hairstyle shapes because you can alter the length, volume and shape of each style. It’s very handy for those with round faces, which are notoriously difficult to match to a new hairstyle.
The free version of this changing hair colour app includes only 15 different styles, but don’t worry: short, long, medium, straight and curly options are among them – and 800 more styles are less than $2 away. There is also a great social media sharing feature so that not just other app users but also your family and friends can give their opinion!
Developed by French cosmetics giant L’Oreal, this app and its amazing 3D colour simulation technology doesn’t disappoint. First of all, it’s totally free and includes more than 50 hair colours to experiment with – including beautiful natural tones as well as bold blue, green and pink options.

At Lily Jackson Hair & Make Up our health philosophy is simple – less chemicals not more.
But let’s get something clear up front – Organic Hair Colour does not exist (apart from some types of Henna).
There are ways to reduce your exposure to chemicals in the quest for beautiful hair but it is confusing and contradictory.
