Best long hairstyles for this year – classy warm colours
Most of the fashion houses we’ve seen used models with light brown or brunette hair and there were no particular colour surprises. That’s good because the continuing trend for warm russet-reds and caramel shades is a very flattering look that suits most women and deserves a ‘long-run’!
I do hear that golden-blonde is going to be huge for spring, according to my contact at L’Oreal! And this seems to confirm that the ash-blonde shades that keep cropping up in the AW fashion events, are still not catching the eye of the celebs (and their hairstylists) we love to copy!
Basket-weaving in the top section of half-up styles looks absolutely fabulous on highlighted hair or hair of an all-over colour. We love the latticed, basket-weave look for top layers on elegant upstyles and trendy half-ups and will be promoting it like mad as one of the best long hairstyles of this year! It’s a really chic and unique look!
Under-layer highlighting on buns and hair-knots
And the classic French Twist is also featured amongst the top five best long hairstyles, for its cool, understated glamour and with some very attractive, contemporary touches.
One of the new ways of highlighting long hair is to add the colour in the underneath layers from root to tip, so it creates a lovely now-you-see-it – now-you-don’t colour scheme. Then when you put your hair up into a hair-knot, bun or French Roll chignon, you create a fabulous, new colour pattern!
Half-up styles and daring colour combos
The half-up half-down look is one of the best long hairstyles for 2017 because it is all-new and ready to dazzle with new styling twists and daring colour combinations! Ombré half-ups look great because of the patterns they make, now imagine what you can create with a dual-ombré half-up style!
The dual-ombré combines three bands of colour which can be the subtle sombré graduation or just three harmonising or contrasting colours!
I believe that one of the most popular new upstyles for long hair in this year will be the retro-1960’s look created with barrel-roll curls lightly back-combed and then pinned in place around the crown.
It’s a super-cool and chic look, that stays in place well and suits all ages, too. And as the latest fringes are forward-combed and straight-across – that completes the authentic ‘60’s style to a ‘T’!

Zippy zig-zag waves & silver-ash-blonde graduated balayage-ombré
Here’s the opposite trend to the soft shades in the previous hairstyle! It’s a high-fashion style and color intended to look artificial with sharply angled waves ending in straightened, spiky tips. There’s extreme contrast between the neutral brown top and silvery white tips, with a softening band of gold-blonde in between!
