2017 Hair Trends: What To Do With Your Hair For Summertime
Should I cut my short? should I grow it out? Should I go blonde? If you're beginning to ask yourself these questions, don't worry! We've got you covered. Here are all the styles, cuts, and colours that are trending this year so you can look your best and stylish all year long!
Buzzed: If you’re looking to make a statement this summer or just trying to keep cool in the heat, then a buzz cut might be for you. Low maintenance, cool, and very trendy; everyone from Cara Delevingne to Katy Perry is rocking a buzzed look. But you're probably thinking, could I pull off a buzzcut? And the answer is most definitely yes. The buzzed look is easy to pull off providing you take your face shape into consideration. Leave a little more on the top if you have a rounder face shape to elongate your face.
Blunt Bob: If you're a fan of the bob and are looking for a way to keep it updated and contemporary, then try out a sharp and angular blunt bob. It doesn't matter whether you want it curly or straight, but the more angular the better.
Lob: The lob or long bob is a great length for those undecided with whether they would prefer to grow their hair out or opt for a shorter cut. Beauty influencers have been a full force behind this trend and you've probably already seen more than a few dotted along your Instagram feed. Style the lob with some flat waves and you will be looking right on trend this summer for a beachy look.
High Pony: Need an elegant yet simple look for a night out? The high pony is a perfect way to keep things relatively quick and easy while keeping the glamour on high. There is so much versatility within this look to fit your mood. Slick it back, straighten, rumple, or curl the ends; the options are limitless. If you want to give your face a more lifted look then pull it tight back, however; this can be uncomfortable and shouldn’t be done to often as overly tight hairstyles can cause hair loss over time.
Flat Waves: Flat waves which are created using a flat iron are a little less glamorous and a little more subtle making them great for everyday wear. Add a little bit of our Bumble and Bumble Bb. Thickening Dryspun Finishing Spray for the ultimate texturized finish.
Super Straight: Super straight hair parted down the centre is one of the biggest hair trends for 2017. Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry, and Nicki Minaj among other celebrities can be seen sporting the stick straight hair. Warning: don’t try to attempt this look if your hair isn’t in perfect, healthy condition. Also make sure to add a heat protectant before you break out the straightener to prevent damage. We recommend the Aveda Damage Remedy Daily Hair Care for damaged or coloured hair and the Bumble and Bumble Bb. Hairdresser`s Invisible Oil Heat/UV Protective Primer for before straightening.
Metallic: If you’re bored with your hair colour, why not spice it up with something different? Try out a metallic colour such as silver, copper or rose gold. Metallics are trending this year with many celebrities rocking subdued metal hues.
Platinum Blonde: Platinum Blonde has been making a comeback over the last couple years with everyone from Kylie Jenner to Justin Bieber sporting this look. This look is very high maintenance and can be very damaging to your hair so keep these things in mind before making your decision.
Tiger Eye Balayage: Balayage (free-hand painting on colour technique) has become a hair colouring staple in the salon world. Tiger Eye Balayage in particular is becoming quite prominent and seen on celebs such as Jennifer Lopez, Sofia Vergara, and Jessica Alba. The colouring involves deep brown and caramel highlights to create an effect similar to the Tiger Eye stone that it is named after. There’s a balayage for everyone so if this colour scheme doesn’t work for you consult your stylist for other ideas.
