Sneak Peek at 2017's Hottest Hairstyles You NEED
Posted by Jasmine Taylor-Moran in Hair
We saw some interesting and colourful hair styles in 2016, with the rise of pastels and rose golds and short cropped locks. We’re in need of a new year refresh to keep our hair conditioned, free of split ends and get ahead of the curve with this sneak peek at this year's upcoming trends.
With changing hair colour or hair style, it’s important to keep your hair nourished and get rid of split ends to ensure your hair stays strong and shiny for longer, as over-styling or changing colour too frequently can be damaging to the hair and cause breakages.
Looking at hairstyles that appeared across SS17 Fashion Week, we can get a good idea at what kind of hairstyles you should be rocking once spring comes round in a few short months.
Too-short fringes and asymmetric bobs are going to be all the rage this spring/summer with the likes of Balenciaga, YSL, Tom Ford and Alexander Wang models donning rich hues of brown, blonde and red on their catwalk. Achieving this sleek, bold look, must be done with precision. The cut is shorter above the eyebrow and gets longer as the style travels round the head with texture and shine brought in with the right combination of products. Using a round brush and Wella Professional EIMI Perfect Setting Spray, tame your flyaways and create that sleek synthetically shiny look. The blunt edges and uniform geometric shape means that any split ends must be gotten rid of before styling.

Catwalk designers such as DKNY, Michael Kors and Balenciaga opted for the more ‘undone’ look in their SS17 shows. The ‘nearly natural’ hairstyles needed to look as if they’d never seen a straightening iron, with flyaways and natural volume stealing the show. Throwing away that cookie cutter look, hair stylists worked with the model’s natural hair, tucking behind ears and twisting to create shape and volume. Choppy, layered cuts are a must, so add SHOW Beauty Premiere Working Texture Spray, which contains amino acids and volcanic ash to get rid of split ends and to add hold and lift to the hair. ‘Undone’ is the new ‘done-up’.
Precisely the hairstyle you would expect from a Victoria Beckham catwalk, this style is also popular with celebrities such as the Kardashians who opt for a perfect centre parting, hair slicked back behind the ears and tamed or textured in the rear - emphasising the length and shine of the hair. This look was also adopted by the likes of Tom Ford and Prada who also loved the sleek lines and uniform partings on their catwalk shows. To recreate this look, Label. M Smoothing Cream can give you those sleek lines and smooth down flyaways and frizz around the parting.
Braids are probably the first style women ever learnt to do as a child, and they aren’t a ‘new’ style as such. There are however, constant attempts to achieve a different look, and braids can create a multitude of different styles using select numbers of strands, areas of the head etc. This spring/summer, we’ll be seeing a lot more ‘undone’ braids as seen on Cavalli, Valentino and Dior catwalks. Pulling a braid apart and loosening hair at the crown to make braids less uniform is the trend you’ll want to get in on, using bobby pins and some Redken Quick Dry Hairspray to keep it all in place.
Top tip: Get rid of any split ends by chopping off breakages and splits that are sticking out whilst the hair is in the braid as they are most obvious in this style.
