The Bob Haircut: Deciding the Most Chic Look for You

Short hair is in! No matter if you want to wear your locks wavy and messy, or sleek and straight, we’re seeing tons of ladies cutting their hair and going for the bob haircut- especially A-list celebrities. Don’t forget how hot it gets in Dallas during the summer; it’s so nice having short hair that doesn’t weigh you down. Want to get the bob haircut? Here are the most chic looks to help you decide.

The Bob Haircut

The bob haircut is a classic for a reason. For as long as we can remember, the bob haircut has always been one of the hottest hairstyles to have. A recent trend we’re seeing is wearing this hairstyle super straight and sleek with razor-sharp ends, with a slight angle. If you want a more effortless look, slightly wave your hair with your straighter. Effortless and beautiful!

The LOB

Have you always wanted short hair, but we’re too scared to cut off those luscious locks of yours? Well, the time is now! Last year, the LOB took the hair industry by storm, and it doesn’t plan on stopping anytime soon. Just slightly longer than your traditional bob haircut, the lob looks stunning on just about anyone.

The Short Bob

If short hair is your thing, you’re going to love this look. Everything about this hairstyle screams chic and stylish. Style this haircut with a choppy, angular cut for a textured look, or wear it straight. Play around and see which style looks best on you! The opportunities with this haircut are endless.

The Modern Shag Haircut: The Hottest Haircut of 2017

This year, we’re throwing it back to the ‘70s, baby.

The shag haircut is back, and bigger than ever – making it the hottest haircut of 2017. You might be thinking “the shag haircut, as in the same haircut Mick Jagger has?” Oh no, the modern shag haircut perfectly frames your face, and can be worn with long, split bangs, or no bangs at all (for easier upkeep).

We love this update on the retro hairstyle because it gives you minimal effort for a maximum chic look. The best part is you can make the shag haircut as long or as short as you’d like! If you’re looking to get rid of those dead ends, and switch things up the shag haircut is definitely for you!

The shag works great for all hair textures and types, but be sure to keep your face shape in mind when considering how to style this cut. If you have a longer, narrow face try styling your shag with your bangs more spread apart so that your face isn’t completely hidden behind them. If you have a more round face, keep the bangs narrow to make your face look more narrow. Did you hop on last year’s trend of the LOB (long-bob)? Then you’ll love the shag haircut. Once your LOB grows out and gets too long, you can easily layer it into the shag.

You probably recognize the modern shag on celebs like Taylor Swift and Chloë Grace Moretz. It’s no surprise that this ‘70s look has made a comeback. This year’s hottest trends are all ‘70s, boho vibes and we’re loving it!

5 Gorgeous Blonde Hair Color Shades to Try In 2017

Do Blondes Really Have More Fun? Let’s Find Out!

It seems that everywhere we look, we’re seeing the blonde hair trend blowing up! If you’ve always wondered if blondes really do have more fun, there’s no better time to find out than right now. We’ve gathered the top five gorgeous blonde hair color shades for every skin tone. There’s no better time to lighten up your look then spring and summer!

Platinum Blonde Hair

Last year we saw lots of platinum blonde hair looks. This year, the trend is continuing on with white hair or with more subtle versions of blonde. We love when the platinum blonde look is paired with a short haircut, giving you the healthiest-looking hair.

Bronde

Bronde – we love bronde! This may be 2017’s hottest hair trend. If you aren’t too familiar with “bronde” it’s the gorgeous medium between brown and blonde. Bronde is perfect for any skin tone because you can make it as blonde, or as brunette as you like – either way will give you a stunning, sun-kissed look.

Cool/Ashy Blonde

If you’re looking to rock cooler tones this summer, try an ashy blonde recently seen on celebs such as Rita Ora and Jennifer Lawrence. If you’re feeling daring, go for an extreme cool/ashy blonde color, and look like the ultimate ice queen.

Strawberry Blonde

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again – strawberry blonde is SO in this season! Play up your blonde locks with a beautiful strawberry shade. You could even go as far as making your hair a more “rose gold shade,” which will be one of the hottest hair color trends this fall.

Golden Blonde

Be the real life Goldilocks with this blonde hair look! If you have more of an olive skin tone, and don’t think you could ever rock the blonde look, think again. Golden blonde hair offers warm shades or caramel and honey that can complement almost any skin tone. If you want to lighten up, but still don’t want to commit to blonde hair, ask your stylist to blend your natural color with a soft, golden blonde.

The shag is the hairstyle to look out for this spring and summer. Pair the shag haircut with natural waves, and you’ll be getting complements left and right. Long or short, we love the way this messy hairstyle is sexy, and so easy to maintain. Shaggy layers with a natural wave is the perfect look for summer – effortlessly flawless.  A-list celebrities like Taylor Swift, Emma Stone and Alexa Chung are rocking this ‘70s hairstyle, and making it modern again.

2. Deep Side Parts

The middle part and the side part are always neck-and-neck, but they’re both here to stay. If you like one more than the other, we have good news – they’re both trending this season! The deep side part took over the runway during NYFW, LFW and PFW. We love this hairstyle because you can make it sleek and edgy with a low ponytail, or pair it with long, wavy hair for the ultimate mermaid look. If you love this look, stick to your side part because it’s only going to get bigger as the season goes on!

3. Middle Parts

Like we said before, the middle part is here to stay as one of spring and summer’s hottest hairstyles. The middle part offers a boho, groovy, free spirit vibe that we’re going crazy for! Celebs like Kim Kardashian and Bella Hadid love to wear the middle with long, sleek, straight hair. If you feel like rocking a more free-spirited, ‘70s style, then style your middle part with loose waves or cute braids.

4. Braided Hairstyles

Braids are the hottest hair trend right now. Celebrities and fashion icons like Kendall Jenner, Sarah Jessica Parker and Olivia Munn rocked the braided-look this red-carpet season. There are countless ways to wear your braids this spring and summer: French braid, Dutch braids, fishtail, small accent braids and thick braids. Whether you’re going for the messy braid, or the half-up braided look, which is perfect for festival season, rock your braids with confidence!

5. Short/Pixie Cuts

Short hair and pixie cuts are back, and bigger than ever! These spring and summer’s hairstyles are offering tons of different looks for short hair and pixie cuts. On the runway, models are rocking their short hairstyles with straight or slicked back. Depending on what look you’re going for, you can rock your new short cut with ‘80s-inspired curls or a sleek bob. We’ve always loved the pixie cut because it’s so timeless, and can be styled anyway you want!

The Hottest Hair Color Trends to Try This Spring & Summer 2017

As we say goodbye to winter, and dive into spring, most of us are eager to update our look for the new season. Spring and summer offer some of the hottest hair color trends of the year. You’re probably asking yourself what could possibly top last year’s trends of balayage and grey hair? Those trends will still be popular this spring and summer, but get ready for even more exotic color trends. Spring and summer are the best times to go for a wild look! Here are The Hottest Hair Color Trends to Try This Spring & Summer 2017

  1. Chocolate Brown Hair Color

Good news for everyone – chocolate brown hair color looks gorgeous on pretty much everyone! The chocolatey color complements almost every skin tone. Another positive thing about this hair color? It’s easy to up-keep! If you want to switch up your look, but don’t want to commit to anything wild just quite yet, this hair color trend is perfect for you.

  1. Strawberry Blonde Hair Color

Strawberry blonde is a beautiful mixture of warm reddish and blonde tones, and it is the perfect color for spring and summer. Depending on your skin tone, you can make your strawberry blonde color as light or as dark as you want! It’s no secret that this is one of the hottest hair color trends of the season.

  1. Deep Roots and Multi-Dimensional Ends

This look is great for everyone because it’s customizable to everyone’s face and skin tone. There’s no “one size fits all” when it comes to this look. You can make your roots as light, or as dark, as you please! If you want to go for a subtle fade of dark roots into lighter ends, or a drastic fade of dark roots to light, multi-dimensional ends, this look will be customized just for you!

  1. Baby-Lights into Lighter Ends

The baby-lights trend gives your hair a fresh, natural and beautiful look! It’s perfect if you want to switch up your look for summer, but still want a subtle change. Another wonderful thing about this trend is that it requires low-maintenance. Since the highlights are so fine, when your natural hair color grows out it just adds a softer presence to the look with no dramatic line of differentiation.
