Top 10 predicted hair trends for 2017….

Hi there you lovely lot,

At this time of year we begin to think about the year ahead and how we’re going to change, whether this reading a book every day for 30 minutes or setting aside some “me” time every week amongst all the chaos of everyday life, or maybe you just fancy a new hair do. We’ve fore casted the top 10 hair trends for 2017, and you won’t want to miss this…….

1- TOPKNOTS

An oldie but a goodie, we love a topknot and they’re so easy to do! Gigi Hadid does it best, make the bun look messy by using sea salt spray to create a wind swept & interesting look, also add loose tendrils by the side of head to beautifully frame your face. Simply clip in our Swirled Bun and you’re good to go! If you’re feeling adventurous then why not add a clip in fringe like mega-babe Kendall Jenner, try out our easy Clip-in Styled Fringe. We think this style will be a classic for years to come.

2- FISHTAIL BRAIDS

If you were out and about this festival season then you no doubt saw a sea of french plaits, and they’re back for 2017 but with a twist! Fishtail braids may look intimidating but are actually really easy to do, check out this simple tutorial to find out how to rock your very own fishtail plaits. Blake Lively does this best by making them look super glam, add our 8 piece 19″ Human Hair Extensions if you want to make your plait a bit chunkier.

3- DENIM HAIR

Grey hair took over 2016 but we’re excited to see some change for 2017, denim hair is predicted to be everywhere next year and we’re obsessed with it. Known best on Kylie Jenner blue hair is beocming main stream! Youtuber Hannah Richardson has dozens of videos on how to maintain, style and take care of blue hair. The thought of dying your hair such a bright colour can seem very daunting but with our ColourSplash Ponies, you can get a little taste of the colour you might like and see how it feels.

4- HAIR JEWELLERY

Who needs earrings when your hair can look so cute!? Body jewellery is so last year, and we can’t wait to see what hair jewellery has in store for us next year. A hair chain is perfect for festival season, pair with our 21″ Human Hair Extensions for the ultimate boho glam look, we also LOVE these hair hoops (pictured below) for a more edgy look, perfect with a french braid and tousled hair!

5- BALAYAGE

Chances are if you have hair then you know dip dye or ombre, depending on what you like to call it, and we’re so over it. Balayage is a major upgrade of this old fad, and it is created to mimic sunlight’s natural lights so it’s a lot softer on the eyes and easier to maintain than traditional highlights.There are an endless list of celebs who have rocked this trend ranging from Rihanna to Kim K to Jennifer Anniston and even Judi Dench has been known to love a Bayalage or two! If you want to see how a bayalage would look on you without the dye then try our 21″ Human Hair Extensions in a shade lighter than your hair colour, and see how you feel.

6- CORKSCREW CURLS

It’s time to go old school! The idea of walking round with a head full of big bouncy curls can seem quite intimidating, but they can be brushed out depending on the look you want to achieve. You can also achieve this look using heat-free methods, so less damage to your hair is always a win, check out these handy tips on Pinterest. Once again, Queen Blake shows us how it’s done with this gorgeous red-carpet look/

7- UNICORN BRAIDS

Summer 2016 was the year of the french plait, and if you were out and about this festival season then you no doubt saw them by the hundreds, but don’t worry they’re not going anywhere! They’ve just had a little revamp in the form of a unicorn- sounds weird but looks amazing! Of course Gigi Hadid was one of the first to rock this look, and she wont be the last but this style is super versatile, and perfect for festival season as it keeps your hair off your face whilst you’re getting your groove on in the summer sun!

8- 1/2 Bun aka “HUN”

This style is perfect for those bad hair days, the solution? Just put 1/2 of it up! Perfect for keeping your hair off your face and still looking glam, you can go for uber straight like Kim K for a neater look or a curly and tousled look like Jessica Alba, either way we’re obsessed. If your hair is lacking a little va-va-voom then why not try one of our Ballerina Bun for a more slicked back look, and add some Human Hair Extensions underneath your hair for more volume.

9- ICE CREAM SHADES

Rainbow hair was a huge trend in 2016 and it’s coming back & better than ever! If bright colours hair scared you then this is right up your alley, all the gorgeousness of colour but a lot more subtle, and easier to maintain. Why not go for a Kesha and split your colour down the middle, for a edgy and dreamy Cruella de Ville vibe that will give you endless looks to go for. Even Dame Helen Mirren opted for a pastel perfect do this year, and we loved it.

10- THE LOB

If you wanted to go for the chop but you’re a bit of a commitment phobe then a lob (long-bob) is ideal for you, all the sophistication of a bob with taking away all your length. Victoria Beckham is the queen of the lob, she’s been doing it for years and we never want her to stop! You can either opt for a soft wave for a beachy care free look or a choppy style depending on your vibe that day, we love
