New Year, New You, New Hair Do!
Goodbye Last year and Hello 2017. There’s something about the New Year that reminds you that there is always time for fresh starts and new beginnings. In particular last year we saw a lot of vintage-inspired hairstyles like the blunt bob.
In 2017, we’re looking forward and making subtle changes to what we’ve already got. Styling your lob sleek instead of wavy, adding long fringe to your long hair or patiently growing out those shorter bobs. If you’re ready for a new look for your new year, we hope these inspire your next salon visit.
Super Sleek Hair Texture
Dust off the flat iron – a sleek, straight hair texture is taking over the hair world. Straight hair can really make your hair look healthy and shiny but always remember to use a heat protectant before using heat on your hair. This hair style is best for face shapes that look good with a center part to compliment the straight hair texture.
Sleek Ballerina Bun
Who doesn’t love a messy bun? But this year, try grabbing some oil and mousse and creating a sleek ballerina bun hairstyle. Keep the buns tight and close to the head and flyaways tucked away. Don’t shy away from different styles of the bun either.
Perhaps you’re not into the wavy texture or the super straight texture either. This is the perfect compromise. These waves created with a flat iron are a subtle way to add texture. It’s really easy to do too!
Choppy Shag Bob Haircuts
In recent times we’ve seen a lot of shag haircuts that compliment a wavy long bob. If you kept your layers subtle last year, perhaps this year is the perfect time to make your cut even choppier. Shag cuts are one of the most versatile and you can make the cut work for your texture and face shape. Check out Nadia Mejia’s choppy bob haircuts for inspiration!
Face-Framing Cuts and Styles
The right hairstyle, regardless of yearly hair trends, is one that compliments your face shape. Delicate layers cut around the face and softly curled are the perfect way to compliment your face shape while enjoying the layering trend you will see in 2017.
Looking for an easy way to switch up your hair? Then do just that! Take a big portion of your hair and flip it to one side, creating plenty of texture of volume without having to change anything.
Pigtails were trendy many years ago, but now, they’re making their comeback. You might not want the polished 3-strand pigtails though. These double braided hairstyles are revitialized. The vibe is boho chic and the look is perfect for a night out or a festival. Try different braids like fishtail braids or knots and leave the braids tousled.
Golden Bronde Hair Color
The natural highlights aren’t going anywhere this year. Sticking with balayage technique hair color, adding multiple hues and shades of blonde, gold and brown will give you a naturally sunkissed look that is easy to maintain and looks natural. This hair color changes depending on lighting too, keeping it fun and versatile all year long.
We hope you have a fantastic hair year in 2017. The best thing about these 2017 hair ideas is that you can mix and match them too. Try the flat wave with the hair flip, the bronde hair color with sleek styling or a choppy lob with a center part.
