Hooker & Young - Luxe Locks

I can’t quite believe it’s 2020! It sounds almost futuristic, or is that just me showing my age?

One thing’s for sure, though, hairstyles for 2020 are definitely not looking sci-fi, but rather gorgeous with beautiful, natural and subdued colours coming through that look super classy and elegant.

This beautiful look comes courtesy of the newly-crowned king and queen of colour, Jonathan Turner and Sophie Gibson, who recently won the title of British Colourist of the Year at the prestigious British Hairdressing Awards at London’s Grosvenor House on Park Lane.

The event is the hairdressing world’s answer to the Oscars and is seen as the biggest event in the industry.

The guys’ collection, ‘School Yearbook’, was inspired by an 1980s American school yearbook, which celebrates individuality and a freedom to be different.

The collection of eight images proved to be the firm favourite with over 90 judges who placed it first, resulting in them bringing the silverware back to the North East.

This award win brings the total of British Hairdressing Awards to an amazing 15 for Hooker & Young – and we couldn’t be more proud!

Using muted tones of pale and medium blonde, this look is a perfect example of bespoke, hand-painted balayage, which looks absolutely stunning.

Waved out to create gorgeous movement and light-reflecting shine, this style definitely turns heads. Try it and prepare to be the envy of everyone!


Jonathan Turner can be found at Hooker & Young Jesmond, while Sophie Gibson is based at Hooker & Young Gosforth.
