For a stylish look in the summers, it is important that you take care of your hair. The right hair color and cuts make a face expressive and make your whole look more dynamic. There’s lots of inspiration from the runway, all ready to be copied, so let’s take a look at designer trends.
We can see straight away that summer 2017 will be one of strong contrasts. Sharp, almost geometric cuts and typically ’80s colors, together with deliberately deconstructed, voluminous, graceful hair, with pale, faded shades and a desire for naturalness without too much artifice.
Whether you want to take the plunge or remain faithful to your own style, there is just one leitmotif to follow: practicality. This season’s hair trends are all easy to wear and style and are trendy for every occasion.
- ‘80S Trends: This trend includes hair with a masculine, but highly styled look, with gelled roots. There are also aggressive, sophisticated and glamorous styles with a contemporary feel. This trend goes well with short haircuts and is perfect for those who want a striking way to emphasize facial features. Black is a must for this mood, but it is shiny, with high- impact color and a darker effect at the roots.
2. Peasant Charm: Typically romantic expression, this trend includes softly styled hair and delicate updo’s. Platinum blonde and its various shades, embellished and decorated with crowns of real flowers, represent this style perfectly, offering a final effect that is soft and never static.
3. The Bowl Cut: The bowl cut is a leading trend for summer 2017. It is unexpectedly easy to wear. It is best for straight hair, while those with curly or wavy hair should choose a bob or de-structured bob with a lot of layering at the sides.
4. The ‘LOB’: The ‘long bob’ is enduringly popular for medium length hair. However, for 2017, the lob is full with a heavy fringe and plenty of layering to add volume.
5. The Tiger Eye: This year’s hair color trend is without a doubt the ‘tiger eye’: perfect for blondes and brunettes who want to give a touch of vitality to dull locks. This is a warm chestnut with caramel tones that can be easily achieved using balayage, for a chic and extremely natural effect.
