For many women, a good hair day can instantly lift their mood and confidence. And a change in hairstyle – be it cut, colour or length – is one of the most impactful ways to update your appearance. For those looking to make a change, or just keep abreast of the most popular styles, we bring you the 7 most popular hair trends for 2017.
Keep scrolling to see how some of our favourite celebrities are wearing the latest hair trends for some major style inspiration.
the BLUNT BOB
Style Notes: While bobs and lobs (that’s long bobs) have been trending for a few seasons now, the latest iteration is a more severe, blunt cut which highlights your cheekbones and jawline.
the BARDOT FRINGE
Style Notes: Taking inspiration from the haircut that Brigitte Bardot made famous in the 1960’s, the new version is defined by loose layers and bangs. With a fringe that is long enough to be split across the center of the face, this style creates a natural-looking appeal.
the BALAYAGE COLOURING
Style Notes: This colouring technique is the latest hit, taking over where the ombre trend left off. While ombre involved dark colouring at the roots of the hair and getting progressively lighter towards the end, balayage is a softer approach. Balayage highlights certain sections of the hair to mimic that “natural” sun-kissed look, providing a super flattering effect on your skin tone.
the ACTUAL NATURAL ‘DO
Style Notes: We all know that that “bed head” look can actually take a lot of time and styling to achieve. So it’s very refreshing to see that this year, what we are calling the actual natural look is being embraced. Let your natural curls take center stage with this low-maintenance trend.
the SUPER SLEEK LOOK
Style Notes: And on the flip side, we also have the return of super straight, sleek and shiny hair. Part hair down the center and let your flat iron go to work. Remember to first apply a heat protectant to avoid damaging your hair.
the ROMANTIC BRAID
Style Notes: If you have long hair, this is a great styling update. Given that the look is meant to be loose and unstructured, you don’t need to have perfect braiding techniques to master this look.
the RIBBON EMBELLISHMENT
Style Notes: Not keen to make any changes to your current hairstyle? Just add a satin or velvet ribbon to get in on one of the latest hair trends.
