New Hairstyles for Women to Check Out
1. Fluffy Pixie
Upgrade your pixie and give it an edge by creating even shorter and more pronounced layers. This is a great option if you already have short hair, but want to go even bolder and shorter. With this look, you can also play with your shorter style by creating a mini-mohawk as you master letting your strands stand stay up on their own.
2. Shaved Sides
Give your cut a modern look by shaving one side of your hair. This works well with hair that’s already short hair as you go for a full side buzz or a slight half-shaved ‘do. Hold your side look in place with some hair gel like the Nexxus Exxtra Hold Sculpting Gel whose formula can help you craft this amazing style as it keeps this look together.
3. Twisted Updo
Twists look really beautiful on medium-length hair and we love how easy this style is as it amps up a normal updo. Simply grab a small section of your hair on each side and work the strands into a twist. Gather them together and secure with some bobby pins.
4. Shaggy Mini Ringlets
This is a great option if you’ve always had a bob, or have always wanted one. This modern look creates jagged and piecey strands that are strategically cut throughout your hair. With this look, you will definitely look stylish, a bit cutting-edge, but still put together. Use some mousse like the TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Foaming Mousse whose formula can give your hair some major body and incredible hold.
5. Flipped Out
We’ve been seeing a ton of flipped out hairstyles that look particularly incredible on medium-length hair. This option creates volume and layers to your ends as you blow-dry your locks away from your face, creating a subtle flip. Lock your flipped out look in place with Dove Style+Care Strength and Shine Flexible Hold Hairspray whose formula can tame frizz and flyaways and it maintains your look.
6. Side Pony with Braids
Upgrade the side ponytail from the ’80s with a modern-day twist by giving depth and texture to your strands. Brush your hair into a pony and then clip it together on one side. For a modern day upgrade, add some braids around your head. Scrunch the middle of your pony and clip it onto your hair, adding a double-pony effect that is bound to turn heads.
7. Twisted Bun
Less rigid than a ballerina bun, a twisted buns looks a bit unkempt, but are actually tightly wrapped together and held together as they create this chic style. This look starts by creating twisting to strands on the side of your head that are wrapped into a low (or high) bun. We love how this new hairstyle for women can transition to your everyday look.
8. Pigtail Braids
Pigtail braids aren’t just for little kids, and when created properly can look polished and sophisticated. Create this look by parting your hair down the middle where you then neatly braid each side. Secure the braids together with a hair tie or elastic band. Another tighter version are the dutch braids, which come with their own unique look and edge.
9. Low Braids
Braids, in and of themselves, aren’t anything new, but the trend has been moving away (ever so slightly) from Instagram’s beloved fishtails to plaits that are hung tight and low. The key to this look is starting with slick and tight strands at your crown. You then make a very low ponytail and create your braid. Tie it together with a ponytail or rubber band.
