Confession time. Are you still rocking the same haircut you graduated with? Or maybe you’ve had the same chestnut-brown shade since you started your new job… three years ago? Revive your routine and update your tresses with one of these latest hair trends. You’ll be speed-dialing your hairdresser before you get to the end of this blog post. Trust us.
YOU HAVE: Hair that you wash. Dry. Then tuck behind your ears.
YOU WANT: Something sleek and on-trend, but still requires minimum effort when it comes to styling.
YOU SHOULD: Embrace a fringe. Not only is it the quickest way to update any look but there’s a fringe for most face shapes too, from side-swept fringes for heart-shapes to arched bangs for round faces. The best part about getting a fringe is the total lack of effort on your part; all it requires is a quick blow-dry. One tip that all fringe-veterans are familiar with: if you can’t be bothered to style the rest of your hair, just blow dry your fringe, put the rest of your hair up into a ponytail or top knot – et voilà! – no one will know the difference.
YOU HAVE: Long, straight lifeless locks that just hang.
YOU WANT: A completely different look to suit your lifestyle (and age).
YOU SHOULD: Go for the chop and straighten those girl-next-door curls for a sharp and sophisticated graphic bob. Saying goodbye to long hair can be emotional (and let’s face it, traumatising), but donating tresses to The Little Princess Trust will definitely make you feel better (as will your new ’do).
YOU WANT: Something edgier that stands out from the crowd.
YOU SHOULD: Lighten up a little! This season blondes are having way more fun by opting for ice-queen-cool tones. Stars such as Gwen Stefani and Jennifer Lawrence are our latest girl-crushes, and rock the white-blonde look effortlessly. If you pick up this issue of PRO Hair & Beauty you’ll see our cover star’s amazing silver-blonde tresses created by HOB Salons’ Izzy Churcher.
Psst! Keep your eyes peeled for our how-to tutorial where Izzy reveals her top tips to creating the perfect silver-blonde colour.
