Sleek and Chic Long Hair Trends for 2017 We Loved
1. Long Hair Low Ponytail
It was out with the old and in with the new when it comes to ponytails in 2017. Instead of the high set, big fluffy ponytails of the last few years (a.k.a: the cheerleader pony,), we saw chic, low ponytails all over. To add interest to a regular ol’ ponytail, add in a braided accent. You could wrap a braid around your ponytail holder, or try out this cool unicorn braid.
2. Long Bangs
Long bangs and longer hair have been blinking on our radar for a little while. These long hair trends went hand in hand for 2017. Extra long, eye grazing bangs make sure your fringe doesn’t look childish. Pair it up with long silky locks and you’ve got a recipe for success. If you’re a first timer, check out our bangs maintenance tips and stock up on Dove Refresh+Care Volume and Fullness Dry Shampoo to help you to refresh and revive your hair in-between washings.
3. Sleek Long Layers
Long layers can add body and movement to long hair. Show off your choppy layers with a swishy D.I.Y blowout. Just be sure to use a serum first for a sleek, frizz-free look, like with S Factor By TIGI Silky Smooth Serum.
4. Fishtail Braids
Fishtail braids were one of the It braids of 2017, so it’s time to start practicing. These braids are super cute as one side braid, pigtail braids and even as fishtail crown braids. These super cool NYFW messy fishtail braided pigtails are so easy to do, because you’re really only braiding a small section. For those new to fishtail braiding, you can learn the how to from our easy fishtail braid tutorial.
5. Blunt Cuts
Ok, so we just covered the long layered hair trend, but blunt cuts definitely had their 15 minutes this 2017. If your hair is on the thin side and you’ve been itching to grow it out, try out a blunt cut! Sharp, defined cuts without layers help thinner hair appear fuller. If you get layers in thin hair, you’re removing that extra little bit of hair that can help you get a fuller look.
