It's a whole new year and as we discussed in our last post, with it brings the opportunity to reflect on yourself, our current life situations, our careers, our love lives... But one other thing that we are also grade-A professionals at is assessing is our looks. And maybe it's about time for a new do?
We are going to be running you through some of the hottest celebrity and influencer hairstyles that are set to be massive in 2018.
With the likes of Shay Mitchell (one of our ultimate hair crushes) and Kim Kardashian loving the super sleek straight long hair towards the end of 2017, then of course it is only a matter of time before we all want their look (who wouldn't?!). For this sophisticated, stylish and ultra polished hairstyle the only thing we recommend is lots of heat protectant and hair serum to combat breakage and flyaways.
After the ombre came the much softer balyage and now, we are ever so sorry to say, goodbye balyage... and hello ribbon highlights! Much more subtle, ribbon highlights offer a little dimension and lift whilst still keeping your hair a rich brown shade, ultimately making you a little less blonde in 2018. Celebrity hairstylists assure this is going to be the next big trend, so jump on it first and be a trendsetter!
Brigitte Bardot eat your heart out! These stunning side swept bangs will give your face an overall softer flattering touch and best of all, they suit every face shape, winner! The gorgeous vintage french actress vibes are set to be huge in 2018 and styled up with modern clothing you will be looking very insta-influencer.
An effortless stylish super high ponytail is what all the it girls have been rocking in 2017 and its about time we all caught on. Shay Mitchell, Zendaya, Candice Swanepoel, Hailey Baldwin, the Kardashians, as well as all your favourite Instagrammers, the list is really endless... Keep it super straight and slick with some extra extensions for extra volume and length or make it super tousled and messy for a gorgeous tousled look. Simple!
Now we know you have all just mastered the messy top knot but now you just need to achieve the same perfectly placed, gorgeous it-girl bun, but lower. For major inspo and some easy tutorials follow @kristin_ess on Instagram, hairstylist for the likes of Lauren Conrad, Jenna Dewan and Lucy Hale... need we say more?
For 2018 you need to get yourself some hair accessories! Cute hair grips, fasteners, rings, silk wraps, ribbons, even headbands Blair Waldorf style. Get a little creative this year and the key is to make sure they are all very pretty. They are also amazingly non-committal, just in case you regret trying something new half way through the day.
