It’s the Spring / Summer season for 2014 and we are looking at the latest hairstyle trends for this year! It’s a great time to consider a new look with a funky new hairstyle. What we need to do is to look at the celebrities and the catwalk for some serious inspiration!
1) Bob Hairstyle
The bob hairstyle is back with a vengeance. The bob in fashion this year is the slick and wet bob. Run oil through your hair and set it with hairspray. Another variation is the tapered and messy bob, which looks great with sharp edges. To create this look, first layer your hair and cut it with sharp edges. Tousle the ends of your hair and apply hairspray to the hair ends for a more defined look. Finally, blow dry and comb your hair through with a paddle brush. Tousle your hair to create that ruffled look.
2) Mermaid Waves
If you have longer hair, then you would probably fancy mermaid waves – quite a romantic hairstyle for this season! All that’s needed is to plaid your hair before you sleep at night and release them in the morning. If you need more waves, wrap your hair around a straightening iron.
3) Peasant-girl braids
Single braids are in season this year with an emphasis on loose braids. Instead of being neat, loosen the braid and pull out some loose strands to create that romantic peasant-girl look. For added effect, accessorize with small flowers for that “Rapunzel” effect.
4) Low Funky Ponytails
Straight and lowly set ponytails are in fashion this year at the catwalks, and are easily set with an interesting hair-clip, or combined with a low bun for that unique low ponytail hairstyle. Even Nicole Kidman’s faux hawk ponytail made heads turn!
5) Hair Accessories
Finally, hair accessories have always been great to highlight an otherwise simple hairstyle, OR to quickly add variety. Even a simple hair clip, a head band, or a single flower-in-the-hair can do wonders when it comes to making us stand out from the crowd.
