Keep right up to date with approaching trends here and now as we cover the major trends and the best hairstyles for 2018!
The styles we’ve seen range from cute French braids on side-swept styles to punk/Goth romantic creations. Dolce & Gabbana and Givenchy models wore fantastic braids and braids intertwined with silk scarves, ribbons, rags and bits of old lace are finally being featured by the big fashion brands.
Top Tip: Try making a thin French head plait from forehead to crown instead of a parting for a totally unique take on the braided detail!
The combed back just-out-of-the-shower-look is being promoted as an ultra-modern hairstyle by several top fashion brands, including Lanvin. However, I’ll be surprised if it actually emerges as a popular look. Just putting gel on your hair and combing it straight back from the forehead isn’t a flattering way to wear hair!
Last year, I only remember seeing it on a ‘red carpet’ celebrity once – and she was ridiculed by comments asking if she had just stepped out of the shower and not had time to style her hair!
The popularity of braids will continue and judging by the imaginative new braid styles that delight us each new season, we can look forward to some fascinating new braiding techniques and styles!
There will be a resurgence of vintage braid styles – and there’s a centuries’ old tradition of braids to choose from! I expect to see messy 1960’s Brigitte Bardot side-plaits along with some sleek and elegant formal braids for evening wear.
For a casual, grungy look there are messy ponies from ‘Rag & Bone’ and we loved the funky idea of creating different sections of texture and colour in a long pony-tail.
For instance, take a piece of fabric and fasten it to a section of hair by winding a piece of fine cord or string around them both. Then crimp another section, and twist some beads around a third section until you have a totally unique eclectic pony-tail!
The pony-tail will keep its position as one of the best hairstyles , as it can be infinitely varied to suit every face shape and personal style!
For a stunning evening pony-tail, copy the extra-long bubble ponytail or take a leaf out of Victoria Beckham’s posh look-book and opt for a simple centre parting, with a straight pony-tail at the nape.
This is one of the most frequently featured hairstyles , as seen on the runway models from Wang, Chai, Zimmermann and Som plus lots more. However, each fashion brand has created a different look with a distinct shape and texture, reflecting the versatility of the side-swept hairstyle!
One new type of bob that I believe will come out on top is the curly bob. It’s a medium-short bob neatly graduated into the nape in a horizontal line, with layers and light curls around the head. Apart from the fact that it’s a bob that suits all faces and ages, it’s also highly recommended for women with fine or thin hair.
So remember – the best bob hairstyles for giving extra volume are the curly bobs with ruffled waves or tousled curls!
