23 Feb Spring 2017 hair trends
So we’ve been over the bob, as you may have seen in one of our recent blogs, but what else is hot on the Spring/Summer 2017 catwalks? Lots, actually, and we’re likin’ it 🙂
70s hair as seen on models for Alexander Wang, Roberto Cavalli and Mimi Wade
70s hair has been on the rise, building in momentum this past year, ans the catwalks were full of this look for Spring. We’re digging it as it gives interesting alternatives to blunt, chunky looks we’ve seen lots of lately. Without having to go full on mullet, this look embraces shag cuts, loose texture and easy to wear styles. Think undone, tousled and textured, with minimal blowdrying to boot! Style with sea salt spray for a more gritty, fashion-forward finish.
80s curls as seen on models for Topshop Unique, Vera Wang and Julien Macdonald
There are many things that are probably best left in the 80s, but power curls aren’t one of them. Whether relaxed and tousled, or preened and sophisticated, curly textures are set to be big this season. Extreme side partings add height and drama to this look.
Short fringes as seen on models for Dior, Balenciaga and Mulberry
Surprisingly, we’re not yet bored of bangs and the laid back vibe they ooze, but we’re always excited when more daring fringes come back into fashion. Whether blunt or choppy, just above the eyebrows or a micro fringe, chops like this can dramatically change up your look. Make sure you keep on top of a fringe like this with regular trims (free for existing clients – just pop in and see us), and use this trend as an excuse to showcase your brows. For maximum impact book with us for an HD Brows appointment for just £25.
Short for spring as seen on models for Balenciaga, Armani, Dior and Prada
More bobs continue to pop up for the likes of Prada, which were worn slicked and pinned for a retro vibe, whereas Armani mixed it up by cropping one side short. Dior models were spotted going shorter still with pixie cuts featuring soft, feminine fringes, and for Balenciaga models it was go short or go home, with super short crops sporting a heavy nape, almost erring towards a modern mullet.
Braids as seen on models for Roberto Cavalli, Valentino, Erdem and Gucci
Braids will forever have a soft spot in Boilerhouse’s hair-up stylists hearts, and they’re definitely one of our go to techniques when it comes to catwalk styling. While Gucci’s giant braided buns might be better left to the confines of the catwalk. simple accent plaits like those seen for Roberto Cavalli and the chic, braided buns of Erdem can definitely be rocked just as easily down the high street as on the catwalk. Book in for a variety of braiding services at Boilerhouse from just £15.
We hope you’ve enjoyed catching up on this season’s hair trends and we look forward to helping you out with fun and fashionable follicles in the near future!
