HAIR TRENDS – Spring is on it’s way and with that comes physical and emotional annual spring clean typically associated with this time of year. Spring brings new energy, and with it the promise of change. They say a change is as good as a holiday, which I’m sure we all desperately need right about now. Beat the winter-blues by changing your hairstyle and get a fresh perspective on life to get you through the rest of 2019.
Why not find inspiration from some of the following current trends:
Bobs are a timeless hairstyle, and have been popular around the world since the 1920’s. There are many reinventions of the bob, but 2019 has given us a razor-sharp, but highly sophisticated, Blunt Bob; and the word on the street is that this look is by far one of the edgiest trends to be inspired by this Spring.
To bang or not to bang? This has always been the question, but over the last decade bangs have made their comeback in all lengths. This year is no exception as we say hello to the cropped fringe. Once sported by a select few, 2019 has seen a resurgence of celebs showing off their baby fringes all over Pinterest and Instagram.
2018’s “messy hair, don’t care” vibe seems to have lost its luster as fashion goes full circle back to super sleek and perfectly polished glossy hair. It’s time to dust off the blow dryer and flat iron, and don’t forget to stock up on heat protectant spray or sleek cream to help protect and maintain your beautiful straight hair.
Crimping is making a fashionable comeback this year, but if you’re looking for a style that screams bold and fearless, Braid Pressing should be at the top of your to do list. Ghd Ambassador, Zoe Irwin, told Elle Magazine (UK) that she was obsessed with the braid press, explaining that it’s a lightly crimped hair look with a strong centre parting. She further explained how to achieve this look, by firstly plaiting your hair from about 5cms down from the parting and work it all the way to the end of the hairpiece.Then lightly clamp your flatiron along the hair, and then brush out the finished look for extra volume and texture.
