Trends for hairstyles come and go just like fashion. 2017 so far has been full of low maintenance, easy looks that suit the lifestyle of the modern woman. This looks set to continue. As we move into summer, hair trends are focusing on relaxed looks, which easily transform from day to night. Here is a look at some of the best.
The hair flip is super simple, trendy, and looks great for any occasion. Literally, all you need to do is flip it from one side to the other. If your hair is thick even going an inch of so over to the other side will create loads of volume. For thinner hair go for a more dramatic side part and add some texturizing powder to give it some extra volume. Finish with a little hairspray to hold it in place and you’re ready to go.
Super sleek and extra-long extensions (think Cher’s hair) are very cool this year. Hair should be super straight and shiny with a center parting to copy this trend. This look works best on healthy hair so make sure you get regular trims to avoid split ends, use a heat protection spray before styling, and invest in high-quality flat irons like these from Vibrastrait.
Use your flat irons again to create gentle bends in your hair. These are much more casual than curls, falling somewhere between straight and beachy waves. Keep your roots and ends straight, and then use your flat irons to add a few subtle waves to the middle of the length. Seal with a few clamps of the irons and a light spritz of hairspray.
Growing Out Shag
The shaggy crop with a thick fringe was incredibly popular for summer 2016. So, logic dictates that the grown-out shag would follow. Fringes from last year could now be ready to part into loose bangs while the grown-out bob is hitting the shoulder and left messy or wavy.
Slick, shiny, wet look hair was all over spring 2017 fashion week and it’s another high fashion trend that’s easy to copy at home. A heavy load of styling crème from your roots down to just above the ends will keep your hair wet looking all day without it being too heavy or unmanageable.
Bronde has been around for a while but is still a strong look going into summer 2017. In some lights, it’s blonde; in others it is golden brown, which will look especially great on the beach this summer.
Braids are a staple summer hairstyle that never goes out of fashion. Braids look great, keep your hair out of the way, and are exceptionally versatile. Whether you want to go for the ever-cool Dutch braid or opt for a fun fishtail your hair will look great all day long. Give your braids a quick clamp with your flat irons before removing for glorious beach waves if you are heading out for the evening and fancy a change.
The beauty of hair is that you can do so much with it. Within these trends, there is plenty you can experiment with to create your own cool style.
