Turn Heads in 2018: Top HairStyles to Start the New Year Right!
The gym bag next to the front door is a testament to your commitment to transforming your body before the new year. You will work hard and achieve your health goals with time to spare- even in this challenging month full of Christmas parties and carb-loaded desserts. With such dedication to the entire ‘New Year, New Me’ concept, is it not time to also upgrade with different hairstyles? Chop off the locks and say goodbye to the anxieties of 2017! Bigger and better things await you, so why be weighed down by outdated highlights and split-ends?
Hairstylists from Paris to Portland will agree that nothing ruins a good haircut like an oily scalp. Pro tip number one: make sure to wash your hair before walking into your salon appointment, even if you have scheduled a wash as well. A double-rinse will make sure your hair is supple and light enough to be easily manipulated into a stellar new hairstyle.
SIDE-SWEPT BANGS (ALL LENGTHS)
Sweep them off of their feet with side-swept bangs of any length- from the top of your cheeks to the very edge of your jawline. This is a versatile look that works better the more disheveled and bed-head like it appears.
CURLY BOB- THE EPITOME OF FRENCH CHIC
Do it once, if only because J. Lo rocks the curly bob like no one’s business! This modern take on the classic bob is easy to maintain and looks best when it is softly styled with a comb or round brush. Just dab on some gel or pomade on your fingers and give the curls around the front of the face and lower back of the head quick twist.
ALL TO ONE SIDE, PLEASE
Extreme, off-sided mane partings are being paired with classic bobs to create loads of drama, both on- and -off the red carpet. If you choose to rock this look with wet finish, make sure to scrunch the hair with gel or spray all around the head. The exposed ear is usually being accessorized with multiple ear piercings or an ornate ear cuff.
You will recognize this look from Audrey Hepburn’s performance in 1953’s Roman Holiday. A fitting tribute to a rebellious royal on the run, the modern-day pixie is combed towards the front of the head. Most starlets are styling this haircut with gel and several tones of the same shade of hair color.
GRADUATED CARRE HAIRCUT
Taking the classic straight carre hairstyles to new heights, the graduate care haircut is defined by its messy, wavy wet-hair look. The soft waves are defined by gel or sea-salt spray and precision-cut to join at random points around the scalp & jawline. The graduated carre haircut is an excellent style for busy college students who want to be stylish but cannot afford to get regular haircuts on a monthly basis. Once they have this haircut, they can maintain it with trimming every other month or even let the hair grow out!
