What colour hair trends can we look forward to in the new season?

My nest collection will include very nude colour: think oyster, champagne, beige, tea stains and burnt vanillas.
A hot look in London at the moment is copper.

The modern mullet is popping up again, with very short tops and long tendril-like whips around the perimeter.
