ENTERTAINMENT NEWS - Here’s our pick of the best hair trends that will see you through 2018.
Gone are the days where highlights appointments were booked like clockwork every six weeks, and applied as close to the roots as possible.
Thanks to techniques that evolved from ombre and balayage, this year’s blonde is much more low key.
Shadow roots mostly leave the roots as is, with irregular highlights that melt together towards the ends.
The good news? Maintenance is only required every 3-6 months. Your wallet will thank you!
Barely there waves (or babe waves, as Shelene Shaer, co-owner of Tanaz hair salon calls them) are big news this year.
Gone are the over the top Victoria’s Secret curls – simply grab a few strands and loosely curl them with a large styling wand or straightener. The aim is for it to look imperfect and slightly shaggy, so don’t sweat the details.
The midi cut
Let’s not beat around the bush – the midi cut is an incarnation of the lob (AKA the long bob, which is now out by the way. It’s hard to keep up).
This time round it’s around collarbone length, which gives you a lot of freedom with regards to styling, but still looks good with a quick blowdry.
The structure of the cut is up to you and your stylist – it can be blunt and angled, or layered and feathered. Either would work, it all depends on your hair texture and lifestyle.
The blunt bob
After years (decades even) of refining the 90s bob to fit our requirements, it seems to be making a comeback in its original form.
No more lobs and textured cuts – this year’s biggest fashion statement might just be a super short angular bob. If you’re brave enough to get one, you’ll be bang on trend.
