This year’s New York and Paris Fashion Week gave us a sneak peek of the hair trends heading our way and they’re not what you expect. This 2017, it’s all about embracing your natural hair and bringing old trends back, with a modern twist of course. Here are the 5 top hair styles you’ll be seeing a lot in the coming months.
The 1920s gave birth to the baby bangs, but Bettie Page and Audrey Hepburn rocked the fringe in the 50s so well – making it one of the most iconic hairstyles of all time. This year, it’s making a comeback but this time, it’s much sharper, shorter, and textured.
Layered locks are out – sharp cuts are in. 2017 is all about edgy styles and nothing can be edgier than straight, blunt haircuts. However, this trend is best for people with finer, thinner strands because the cut will help add weight and structure to the hair. This is also a great option for people with fried hair from over-styling as it chops off the damaged ends.
TIP: To keep the hair in place, we recommend using O&M Project Sukuroi Gold Smoothing Hair Balm for a sleek, frizz-free look.
No other haircut captures the seventies youth culture more than the shag. Back then, it was heavily layered at the top with hair kept away from the face. This year’s updated version of the shag is longer and wispier with more layers from crown to ends, giving the wearer a perfectly disheveled hair.
Yep, the lob (or long bob) trend is not going anywhere. The mid-length style made a splash last year and it has become a favorite among many celebrities thanks to its low-maintenance yet trendy appeal.
With the lob, it’s easy to switch up your look. It’s perfect for every face shape and hair texture as well, so styling is always a breeze – whether you want it sleek and straight or wavy and tousled.
Au Naturel Curls
Let your natural curls out because 2017 is their year! In fact, many people with silky straight hair are getting perms because let’s admit it: curls are incredibly sexy.
The past month, almost every show from New York and Paris Fashion Week showcased naturally curly models sashaying the runways of Proenza Schouler, Tory Burch, YSL, Balmain, and Christian Dior, to name a few. A testament that even big-name brands recognize the power of ringlets and afros.
