Hair Trends to Watch For in 2017

A new year always brings about changes. Perhaps one most the most fun to watch for is hair trends. Whether you are ready to embrace a new look for yourself now or are thinking about making a change in the future, it’s an exciting time to be in-the-know on trends.
Hair Color
Hair color has become an accessory as important to your look as your shoes, and there are several inspiring color trends on the horizon for 2017. All-over blondes are getting cooled down with ashen tones. Brunettes are going deep and rich, with delicious chocolate tones, while reds will be more natural. The more natural look of balayage is taking over traditional highlights, and a new “bronde” (brown-blonde) tone is still gaining in popularity.

The texture story that began last year is in no way slowing down. The new year promises to promote soft, touchable curls. Last year’s natural curl texture craze isn’t going away anytime soon, expect to keep seeing it this year. Don’t want to wear curl? No problem. The sleek, straight look is also in very much in vogue.
The Best of the Rest
  • Short hair styles are getting influenced by typically masculine looks like pompadours. Modified and made feminine with curls, they’re simple to style and highlight an energetic personality.
  • Variations on the bob will still hold the lock on mid-length styles this year, with layers and fringe giving the cut some variation for a more personal look.
  • Long hair is in for 2017. Kept healthy and shiny, long hair—think mermaid long—will become a grow-out goal. But keep in mind, getting regular trims—even when you’re growing your hair out—is the best way to help it stay healthy.
  • Bangs will be big this year, especially eye-length bangs.
