This eye-catching look is not just for brunettes – blondes and red-heads can get it on the action, too.
Channeling your inner fashionista, try adding a chic, high-contrast ombre that will go from medium-dark shade to an ultra-light one. The loose waves hairstyle will add softness to your overall look and can be matched with any type of makeup.
At-home styling tip: Simply curl your hair using twisty buns, braids, or a curling iron, and then lightly brush out the curls to soften.
If you prefer dipping your hair ends into a hair color instead of dying your entire head, ombre is the ideal way to go. Ombre hues remain to be a huge trend among celebrities because of their different options and low-maintenance. Seen on every runway and fashion magazine, this hairstyle is bold, soft, and dramatically colorful. The ombre trend is suitable for any season and skin tone, turning heads and making a statement.
This chic movement shows no signs of slowing down and is still at the top of salons’ most requested hairstyles. And the best part about ombre hair? It seamlessly combines two hair shades so you don’t have to pick just one! Try taking an advantage of this season’s biggest hair trends, long bobs and ombre color, and see if you can pull off the style popularized by A-list celebrities.
Styling tip: For those who are fans of wilder shades, you could go with the colombre look where the mid-shaft to the ends are dyed with a creative color like blue, purple, pink, or turquoise.
Edgy, messy, and choppy, the petite-coif is among the most popular It cuts of the year. This sensational trend includes short hair around the perimeter of the face, with deep parts and textured flips for an added visual appeal. Take note from celebs like Kate Mara, Lily Collins, and Scarlett Johansson who prove the chicness and versatility of the short cut. Universally flattering, the best part of the petite-coif is that it keeps all the attention to your face. Try pairing it with big earrings for a perfectly delicate and dreamy Hollywood look.
At-home styling tip: Use a bit of gel to comb your hair to the preferred direction, or try fixing it with your hands and a blow dryer into your desired shape.
Reminiscent of the 1920’s women like Coco Chanel and Zelda Fitzgerald, the Gatsby-inspired bob has a major moment in Hollywood. This cheekbone-length crop makes every woman look incredibly modern with a natural, wavy texture. Glamorous and classically cool, this Bohemian-like look that is universally embraced caused a major fashion revolution when it first appeared during the Great War.
Worn either with bangs or with the hair brushed off of the forehead, the Gatsby bob is timelessly feminine and exceedingly fashion-forward. Want to copy this style? Make a side part above the arch of your eyebrows, curl your hair from the temples down, and then brush to get loose waves.
Styling tip: If you wish to create a faux Gatsby-inspired bob, tuck and pin your hair at the nape of your neck and pull couple of strands loose.
Ideal for women with naturally voluminous hair, the geometric hairstyle includes a cut tapered at the bottom to create a shape within your hair. The key is in letting your hair be heavy on top, yet bouncy on the bottom. Well-structured with bold shapes and eccentric lines, this cut is really super-clean, blunt all around, and resembles a triangle.
In-home styling tip: Create various looks by switching up your part by moving it to the side or down the middle.
#5 Model Midi
The model mini hairstyle is a mid-length cut that requires minimal effort and looks great on just about everyone. Neither long nor short, the midi do falls between the collarbone and the armpits and is often layered for movement or topped with bangs. Favored among celebrities, this trend is different but it doesn’t feel like a drastic change. An excellent way to get rid of those dead ends, the model midi is easy to blow out and offers a variety of styles that will instantly catch the eye. Fresh, modern, and low-maintenance, it will accompany your outfits on casual get-togethers and special occasions.
Styling tip: You can create different styles by pulling it up, or wearing it natural, in a ponytail, or elegantly straight.
From salt-and-pepper tones and sun-kissed hues to honey-colored ribbons and low-lights, there are various options for adding life to your dull strands. Highlights are the ideal way to enhance, refresh, and update your look, adding depth and texture to your hair. By playing with dark and light tones, you are creating the illusion of a wider or a narrower face. There are plenty of color hues to choose from like caramel, walnut, toffee, deep red, platinum blond or copper, all of which will complement your look with an elegant and glamorous flair.
And the key to this hairstyle? Choosing a shade that will be in harmony with your skin tone. Dark skin benefits from bronze and copper hues, medium-toned skin from intense browns and toffee, while pale skin is best complemented by platinum, ash tones, and caramel hues.
Styling tip: For a more casual and glowy look, try a color that is fairly close to your own. The highlights should be placed around the crown of your head and extended fully for as more natural look as possible.
The pastel strands trend is the look that’s united Hollywood over the past few years. Giving your simple haircut class and a beautiful aura, this hairstyle is often seen on the international catwalks of Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Valentino, Ralph Lauren or Diane von Fürstenberg.
These soft, romantic colors look inspiring and unique, and are a real head-turner. Ideal for anyone who desires a creative and exquisite hair color on the base of their natural hair shades, there are plenty of hues to choose from like subtle rosewood, strawberry blonde, pastel pink, pastel peach, and so many more. The pastel strands are an upgrade idea if you wish to achieve a gorgeous, eye-catching hair look with the help of a professional colorist. These hints of pastel will give any light colored hair a new twist and a refreshed look.
Styling tip: It’s important to always choose soft shades because they’re more flattering to the face. The entire hairstyle should be rough and this can be achieved with hair powder.
#2 Dark Roots
There is no longer a reason to be concerned about your dark roots since they are now universally accepted as a two-toned trend. Not long ago these dark roots were a taboo and needed to be touched up frequently. From taboo to a hairstyle option, the days of a monochrome hair are long gone.
Looking fierce and daring, the dark roots are en vogue in Hollywood, with celebs like Beyoncé, Jessica Alba, Blake Lively, and Sarah Jessica Parker putting their growing-out processes on a proud display. These dark roots are a lazy-girl beauty trend that requires minimum effort and low maintenance. The dark roots can be further enhanced and paired with a pixie cut, bob cut, beach waves, rainbow colors, and slicked back strands.
Styling tip: Your roots need to be touched up anywhere from 2-8 weeks after coloring. Dark roots in blonde hair need to be touched up sooner to keep your hair looking good.
A longer version of the bob, the lob cut is the most versatile hairstyle that fits any woman with any face shape and style. The lob is the perfect balance between short and long, decidedly low-maintenance, and relies on nothing more than texturizing spray. There are various styles to choose from like Kim Kardashian’s angled lob, Emilia Clarke’s beach waves lob, Jourdan Dunn’s sun-kissed ombre lob, or Jessica Chastain’s layered lob.
This hairstyle elongates the neck, makes your hair look thicker, adding texture and movement. Chic and sophisticated, it’s a great start for every woman who’s scared to cut her hair. And the best part? You can wear it as a down-do, as a half-up hairstyle, or lift it up in a sort of an up-do.
Perfect for: Anyone who’s tired of heated stylish tools.
In-home styling tip: Add a touch of spray-on oil or shine mist for a more polished, sleek, and sexy look.
