As we take on another year and another range of new trends to embrace, Melodie Pope at The Shoreham Lounge gives us her predictions for what’s hot on your head this year…
So last year it was all about the ombre. This year it’s more flexible. It might not be dark to light on the ends – this year is all about bringing the best out on an individual and working with their colouring. We see copper influencing light brown tones, or light colours working with pastel palettes. Whatever the combo, blending for your own look is the way forward for this year.
The big bouncy 80s blowdry is back!! Yay!!!!! Glamourous and with an OTT root lift to make that crowning glory bounce on the dance floor – I love it!
Definitely a big trend, and not just for hippy braids and flowers. From hair bands and clips to more elaborate floral looks, this is not just for special occasions like weddings any more. Hair accessories are a key part of looks for 2017 and a way to jazz up your tresses without spending hours styling.
Middle sections on top; plaits to keep a fringe out the way; French plaits to fish tails – even tiny little individual plaits amongst the hair – this is something that’s easy to do to yourself and makes a really simple hair style look different.
A quick way to tidy away unruly hair and a great hack for hair that isn’t freshly washed but needs to serve up some style! The classic ballerina bun is quick and easy to do but looks elegant and classy and stays in place all day. I like to tuft it out a bit to soften the severity but anything goes with this sophisticated take.
Melodie is on hand with some serious hair expertise each week at the Shoreham Hair Lounge.
