Fashionistas and hair stylists all over the world are now calling and spotting what we’ll see as the biggest and hottest hair trends 2017.

Hair Trends 2017: The Colours


In 2017 we are introduced to yet another of these funny sounding cool haircolour trends, namely ‘bronde’. This colour is, as the name indicates, a mix between dark blonde and light brown. It’s a dark, golden blonde becoming lighter towards the ends. The feature of this colour is that in some lights it will look blonde, while in others it will look brown. A cool and playful look that doesn’t get boring.

Super Dark Brown

One of the colours you can expect to see a lot in 2017 is the very dark and rich brown. This colour, almost resembling black, is taking over from the lighter chocolate and caramel brown. However, if you don’t want to go all dark, the natural brown, caramel and balayage are still very cool as well.

The High Ponytail

The cool, sporty and action-woman-like high ponytail is re-entering the fashion scene (if it ever really left). This hairstyle is very simple and not time consuming to make. If you think this is a boring look, you’re wrong! What makes the ponytail  one of my favourite hair trends 2017 is that it can be made in so many different ways depending on what look you want and how much time you have.

Full Curls or Flat Waves

Volume, volume and a bit of volume – yes, in 2017 we embrace curls! Whether you like flat waves or big curls, texture and volume is in. The flat waves are perfect for adding a bit of detail to your everyday hair. However, if you are so lucky as to have big and beautiful natural curls, the 2016 trend of ‘natural hair’ will very much continue in 2017. So embrace your full curls, do try to hide’em!

Long Shag, Bob and Bangs

Though it sounds like a band from the previous century, the shag and bob with bangs were some of the biggest hits within hair trends in 2016. This year, you have to grow out your layers and bangs and the beautiful result will be medium length hairstyles trending in 2017. Let the hair hit just past the shoulders and split your bangs in two by the middle and you have yourself one of the hottest hairstyles this year.

Long, Longer, Longest

In contrast, if you have long hair, don’t consider cutting it. The very loooong hair is hot in 2017, so take good care of your precious locks and let them grow! If you have shorter hair, but love this look, use hair extensions to get the Cher look.
