The last few fashion seasons have featured many new hair styling trends. This offers an opportunity to try out new styling and hair care tips that could be perfect for your hair. This article will highlight several new styles and offer some suggestions about how to decide which of the new trends to try.
One of the biggest new hairstyle trends is a variation of the traditional wet look. Classic wet looks rely on heavy gel products worked into the hair and slicked back into a tight ponytail, giving a somewhat severe effect of wet hair under strict control. The new styles, seen on runways for the last few seasons, utilize natural oils such as argan, manoi or jojoba, instead of the harsh gels of years past. The oil is smoothed into the damp hair and allowed to dry naturally resulting in loose wavy tendrils that shine and glisten in a free fall all around the head. It’s a great casual daytime look that conditions the hair while producing a pleasing style. If you like a slightly un-kept and natural look, you may want to try this new trend.
The center part is back! The newest version establishes control at the part with gels or foams and are heavily sprayed to keep the part in place. The rest of the hair can be left mostly untreated and hanging in tousled bunches or alternately hot rolled to create large but soft curls. It’s a striking comparison to the old stick straight side part and much more wearable for many hair textures. As a rule, a center part works best for those with more or less symmetrical features.
Braids are all over the runways. In sophisticated winding patterns around the forehead or in back, they are making a big impact in beauty, right now. They can be messy or neat, long or short but the best ones harken back to the early 20th century for retro appeal.
Retro hair styles in general are showing no signs of waning. Short curled bangs from the pinup era abound and are accentuated with loose waves or curls. Also, these short bangs are styled with updos with a hat tip to the 1920’s with a little retro/futuristic touch thrown in for modern flair – think of Rachel in Blade Runner as an inspiration. Those with long thick hair can handle this look quite well.
Other popular trends include many types of ponytails and updos with glittery accessories. The ponytails run the gamut from soft curly falls to sleek slicked back strait locks. Choose the one that suits your hair texture. Updos have been trending toward the messy side, with loose buns and hanging wisps cascading around the face and neck. Updos with hair jewelry are fun for any hair type and allow for artful expression in your choice of accessories.
As you can see, there are many new hairstyle trends out there to try. So, spice up your look and experiment with the new styles. You are sure to find a few that will suit your sense of beauty and style.
