Want a new ‘do for 2017? Say no more.
As the new year rolls in, we have all undoubtedly made a few resolutions for the months ahead. But let’s be honest, more often than not, we make promises to ourselves that we simple can’t or have no intention of sticking to (ahem, going to the gym!). However, there is one resolution that you can make, which is oh-so-easy to keep: trying out some 2017 hairstyles for a stylish new you!
Now, it’s no surprise that last year was a kick in the pants for a lot of us, but this year is going to be different. How do we know? Well, because when you look good, you feel good – and you can feel good all year with one of the 5 on-trend looks that we’ve specially picked for you. So what are you waiting for? It’s time to start off 2017 with a positive attitude and a fabulous new ‘do!
Trendy 2017 hairstyles to try
Layered, textured hair
If you have ultra long locks, you’ll be pleased to know that you don’t have to tie it up to rock an on-trend ‘do this year – instead, cut lots of layers into your hair for a highly textured look. Set to be one of the biggest styles of 2017, you may want to draw your inspiration from Ashley Tisdale’s fashionable haircut, which features layers of varying length and lots of texture. Yet while this style can work with straight hair, we think that your layers will look best when fashioned into soft waves.
Editor’s tip: Don’t worry if you have less than full locks, because it’s super easy to fake your way to textured hair. All it takes is to spritz the VO5 Dry Texturising Spray into your strands after styling, and you’ll have tousled tresses in no time!
For a hair makeover that doesn’t require too much maintenance, opt for long, eye-grazing bangs. Not only is this versatile fringe length super stylish for the new year, but it can also be pinned back when you want to switch things up!
Now, while you may think that rocking bangs is a huge commitment, this one most definitely isn’t – thanks to its longer length, it will take less time to grow them out into long, face-framing layers, should you decide a fringe isn’t right for you. Pretty neat, eh?
If there was ever a time to make brave choices and embrace change, it’s at the start of a new year! And for this very reason, we predict that bold, daring cuts are set to become a hair staple for any fashionista. Just take Kelly Rowland’s blunt, short bob for example: the chic middle parting and chin-grazing length of her cropped ‘do really works to brighten her face.
However, it’s not all about bob hairdos, you can choose whichever daring cut you wish, from an edgy buzz cut or undercut, to a short pixie or fauxhawk: the hair world really is your oyster. Just remember to choose a fun-loving hairstyle to match your personality, and you can rest assured you’ll love your new cut all year long!
Whether you have naturally straight, wavy, curly or coily hair, we’re encouraging you to embrace it in 2017. Just take a leaf out of singer Jess Glynne’s book, who is always spotted out and about sporting her fiery, natural curls (which we just love, by the way!).
Editor’s tip: If you have naturally kinky or coily hair, you can help tame the frizz and define your curls by applying a small amount of the VO5 Frizz Free Cream to your mane. Trust us, it’ll really make your ringlets pop!
Sleek and straight
While last year saw a rise in tousled, wavy bobs and shags, this year is all about ultra sleek, slick straight strands. Previously donned by the likes of Nicole Scherzinger, Lea Michele, and Jourdan Dunn (to name but a few), you know that this hairstyles is worth its salt! But the real beauty of such a chic and refined look, is that you can pull it off with ease, regardless if you have shoulder-length hair or ultra long locks – just get your straighteners at the ready and style away!
Editor’s tip: Use the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth: 7 Day Smooth Heat Activated Treatment before blow-drying and straightening your hair, as this will help to achieve frizz-free, silky strands.
