2016 was the year which brought you the “lob” (that’s a long bob to you and me) and made rainbow hair “a thing” again. But whichever trends you rocked (or realised were a very bad idea) this year, there’s a fresh batch of styles and shades with which to achieve hair glory in 2017.
From “bronde” hair which turns the ombre trend on its head, to serious waves which don’t take any prisoners, it’s time to find your personal favourite hair trend for the coming year. Which will you try?
1. Going “bronde”
Who says you have to be a blonde, a brunette or a redhead? Next year you can go bronde. This style is all about “grown out” bleach, which creates a softer, more natural take on ombre with natural dark roots and lighter ends.
2. Mid-length mops
The evolution of the “lob” is set to make mid-length, messy styles with a little bit of wave a Big Deal on red carpets and catwalks. It’s a very chic, modern look and – best of all – it’s brilliantly low maintenance.
3. Mega curls
If you’re lucky enough to have natural curl of any kind, 2017 is the year to embrace it whole-heartedly. Think big volume, no nasty chemicals and lots of beautiful, natural curls that do their own thing.
4. Blunt & long
This hippy chic look comes around once every few years, but is enduringly flattering. To get the look, team long lengths with a blunt fringe and channel your inner rock chick.
5. Darkest brown
The Kardashians have been few more than a few hair shades in their time, but now they’re bringing their natural super dark brown back in all of its mysterious glossy glory. Choose a deep, chocolatey shade to capture the Zeitgeist in 2017.
