1. The Long and Sleek

The Glamoury’s owner AJ Woodworth says this year is all about the super sleek and straight hair, the longer the better. Whether parted in the middle or swept off the face this look will continue to make its way through 2017, so have the flat irons ready.

2. Braids and More Braids

Suki’s Senior Stylist James Valiant chose the braids trend as staying around for 2017. They say braids are classic, fun, easy to do, and super stylish. But this year’s braids are being updated by incorporated into chignons and up-does. Lily Colins and Sarah Jessica Parker are a few celebrities already strutting the look.

3. The Colour Wash Technique

Heartbreaker Salon is seeing an increase in colour wash techniques, it’s where a small amount of dark colour is mixed with a light colour. The result is a faded and washed tone less bright than the pastels and paint box colours from last year, a duller version. Meaning colour is still in, so if you were doubtful in 2016, you still have time this year.
