Even though we are about through 2017 (gasp!), we want to give you some of the top hairstyle trends this year so you can wow at your next social event or just during a casual day. This year is the time to be bold and try something you never have done before with your hair. Whether it’s simply cutting off a few inches, getting some highlights or completely changing the color, switching up your hair is an easy way to achieve a fresh new look.
Here are our recommendations based on this year’s hottest styles.
The Blunt Bob
Looking to trim off some hair for the summer to avoid that head heat? Well you’re in luck because short hair is in right now, especially the blunt bob. Celebrities such as Selena Gomez, Rihanna, and Nina Dobrev have been seen sporting this classic look. This trend seeks to create clean lines and sharp angles to highlight your jawline and cheekbones. The best part is that it works for both curly, wavy and straight hair. Add some fun bangs to go the extra mile and complete the look! This is probably the most drastic trend of the year, but also the most liberating. You’ll feel as free as ever.
Natural Looking Balayage
For those of you who don’t know what “balayage” is, well it is actually the French word meaning to sweep or to paint. And that is exactly what hair stylists do when doing balayage, they paint your hair with the goal of creating a sun-kissed and natural look. It is a freestyle technique used without foils or meche to create the highlights. The best part is that it grows out beautifully and doesn’t create a noticeable regrowth line, so you can go longer between hair appointments. Go with balayage for a timeless and low maintenance hair style!
Slick and Shiny
Do you remember Kim Kardashian’s wet hair look at last year’s Video Music Awards? Well this trend is here to stay for 2017 and is easy to accomplish (with a lot of styling cream). Just run your favorite styling cream from the roots to the ends until your hair looks sopping wet, like you just got out of the shower. It might sound weird but it looks so sleek! It will look shiny and hold in place all day, creating a sexy and effortless look.
One of the biggest trends of the year might also be one of the simplest, flat-ironed hair with a center-part. However, when doing this look make sure to use a heat protectant spray before you fry your hair with the straightener. The last thing you want is dry and damaged looking hair! A heat protectant spray will help keep your healthy when achieving this look.
