SS17 catwalks of New York, London, Milan and Paris have inspired us with the latest hair trends.
✔️ Going Platinum: Stars like Katy Perry and Cara Delevingne have ditched their signature hair colors for silvery platinum blonde. Both later chopped off their hair—since short hair so much easier to bleach.
✔️ The High Pony: Slick your hair up. All the way up. Done in rumpled texture or stick-straight, the high ponytail adds both an elegance and ease to every ensemble. Bonus: the tighter you secure it, the more lifted your face looks.
✔️ Super Slick: Break out your flat iron—straight, shiny, and center-parted hair is one of the biggest trends for 2017. But this style only works if your hair looks healthy—not fried. Be sure to mist a heat protectant through your hair before touching it with a straightener.
✔️ Growing-Out Shag: The shag was the surprising hit haircut in 2016. But those layers and bangs have to grow out sometime. In 2017, we’ll see the beautiful result of that. With hair that hits just past the shoulders and bangs that are long enough to be split down the middle, the grown-out shag is the haircut to keep an eye on this year. If anything, it’s a way to hint at a shag without giving it your full commitment.
✔️ Flat Waves: Neither beachy nor bouncy, flat iron waves are the new curling iron waves. As seen here on Kendall Jenner, waves created with a straightener are more subtle and a little less glam. Just create a bend in your hair by pushing it upward, then seal the shape with a few clamps of your iron. Release and repeat. Keep your ends straight for the most polished finish.
✔️ Blunt Bob: Curly or straight, there’s only one way to cut a bob this year: blunt and sharp. The more angular, the better—as evidence by Bella Hadid, Selena Gomez, and Rihanna.
✔️ Cher Hair: Ultra-long extensions aren’t going anywhere.
✔️ Romantic Braids: Skip the updo, top knot, or French twist next time you’re planning your hairstyle for a big night out.
