You read them, you love them, you want more of them. Who can resist a Top Ten hairstyle-inspired list…
The bob has been going strong for years! It’s a versatile cut with a length to suit anyone. Heidi Klum has shown the mature ‘kissing the shoulders’ length is beautiful whereas, Christina Aguilera recently stepped out on New Year’s Eve with a short, chin skimming blunt bob, very high fashion.
Loosed curls pinned into a bun is an incredibly popular style. So, pull a couple of curls loose to frame facial features. A firm favourite for the celebrities and perfect if you want to look a little more commercial or natural and also great with a bright lip.
Big ringlets are big news! No one demonstrated this better than Christina Aguilera in her 2007 video, Ain’t No Other Man, where she made them look incredibly sexy and paired them with a black sparkly hat – gorgeous! Kristen Cavallari is also a fan of this glam look and wears them with casual wear to avoid looking too ‘done’.
Quiffs come in different shapes and sizes, but all are equally fierce. Danni Monogue made her quiff on the X factor look sophisticated and chic, whilst Beyonce prefers to be playful and bold with her over-sized quiff and big hair.
What’s simpler than the classic ponytail? Miley Cyrus, Lauren Conrad and Hilary Duff have already taken to this season’s mid-height-and-tight ponytail. Excellent for a quick, easy, casual daytime look.
A fringe never goes out of trend, be it light and feathered like Kim Cattral, short and spiky like Ashlee Simpson’s 2008 do or long and side swept like Paris Hilton and Jessica Simpson.
A floral hair accessory can brighten up any look. A hair scarf can cover up any bad hair day, but the most popular is the hair braid. Kelly Osborne and Nicole Richie love hair accessories.
Sleek hair is back! Poker straight hair is back in fashion for this year, gone are the days of big bouncy locks. When blow drying, aim nozzle down the hair shaft, use straightening irons and finish with a smoothing serum. Only those blessed with high cheekbones can work this look properly, if you have a fuller face use volumising mousse on roots and only straightening ends.
Big voluminous hair can take you straight to glam; curly or straight big hair is foolproof and never dates. Take inspiration from the 60s, the bigger the better. Run mousse through, roll in rollers, run a heated hair dryer over hair until completely dry, finish with cold air to set, gently unravel roller, shake your backcomb a little and finish with a splash of glossing spray.
Undone hair is everywhere! There are many takes on this style. Kate Hudson wears hers in beach waves. Just spritz a little curl spray in towel dried hair and dry roughly. Another great take is to scrunch tons of mousse throughout your hair, then dry using a diffuser, or curl hair loosely, then run fingers through for the ultimate natural look. Failing that, if you want minimum input and maximum output, wash and condition hair, towel dry, twirl medium sized strands of hair, then pin up using Kirby grips. Shake out in the morning and spritz with hair spray. Good to go!
