We’ve rounded up the most lust-worthy looks , giving you ready-to-wear hair straight from the catwalk.
#1 BUTTERY BLONDE
Blonde hair will forever have a moment. This year is all about the warmer tones. A blonde that looks like it has been lived-in is the new platinum. To get the shade of the season, keep roots dark and the rest a creamy ‘melt in your mouth’ blonde to compliment a warm complexion. We’ve seen this look on celebrities like Selena Gomez, who dropped jaws when she debuted her drastically lightened tresses at the AMA’s, and Ciara, who believes blondes have more fun. The reason for the popularity behind this soft golden colour is that it works on so many people thanks to its flattering versatility.
#2 FRINGED BANGS
It’s time to ditch the hesitation when it comes to considering bangs. Fringed bangs that are tailored to your face shape, make a messy undone hairstyle look polished without trying too hard, not to mention they’re low maintenance. This effortless style has the ultimate chic, cool-girl feel. On days where you want to switch it up, or don’t feel like putting in the effort, try side sweeping them (as seen on Victoria Secret Angel, Taylor Hill).
#3 THE PIXIE
Naturally, after a buzz cut comes the pixie. From classic icons like Twiggy, to Audrey Hepburn, this short hairstyle is the epitome of timeless feminism. Celebrities who were spotted with a then buzz now pixie, like Zoé Kravitz and Kate Hudson, prove that this cut showcases facial features in the most delicate way.
Air dried is the new blowout. Celebrities are choosing to embrace their natural textures and are avoiding hot tools that alter the hair follicle. This will not only save your hair, but your wallet as well. This year, opt for keeping true to your hairs naturalness, but don’t skip out on the products. Try adding hair oil to dry or damp hair to aid in the natural process. If you crave that lift you get from your blow dryer, substitute with dry shampoo. Who wouldn’t want their hair to say, “I woke up like this” when you actually did.
#5 SUBTLE RIBBON HIGHLIGHTS
The highlight trend of the year is made to resemble ribbon-like pieces that are placed farther apart, giving it that sought after sun-kissed feel. This look is different from ombre in that it is not heavy on the ends. Actress Olivia Munn proves that a subtle touch of colour makes for a fun and sophisticated ‘do.
#6 RETRO VIBES
The ‘60s are back, and so are headbands and hair flips. On the runway, we’ve seen this groovy accessory at shows like, Miu Miu and Anya Hindmarch. This retro inspired mod up-do puts your facial features on display with proof that vintage hair trends are anything but dated.
