Hair Trends in 2018

best hair extensions

As we all know, hair has always been a woman’s best accessory because it boosts her confidence and makes her feel more feminine. We tend to experiment a lot with our hair- dye it, cut it short, let it grow again, straighten it, curl it, or go to a hair saloon to get hair extensions done by a professionalist. One can tell a lot about a woman merely from her hairstyle because it can depend and vary from her mood, how busy her life is, how she feels in her skin, even her occupation. Now, let us dig into the Hair Trends for 2018 so we can give you some fresh ideas on how to style your hair.

Short and center-parted

short and center-parted hair style trend in 2018

Short, middle-parted hair is going to be a huge trend for 2018 because it is easy to maintain, effortless, neither too messy, nor too fancy  which makes it a great choice for women whose life is too hectic and busy. Furthermore, this hairstyle creates the illusion of a longer, skinnier and more feminine face.

At the runaways Michael Kors’ models are seen with center-parted straight hair, whereas Nina Ricci’s models have short, center-parted hair with curls starting from the level of the ears. If you choose to cut your hair short you will not only be following the latest hair trends but also save some time in the morning.


One-side parted and pushed behind the ears

It is a well known fact that men like to see their woman with a ponytail or a bun because there is no hanging hair to cover and hide their partner’s beautiful face.  This leads us to the next hair trend which is the parted to one side and pushed behind the ears hairstyle. Even though the hair is loose one can still see a woman’s beautiful and feminine cheeks, jaw line and ears. Long earrings go so well with this hairstyle. This is yet another easy to maintain, classy and feminine hair trend which will highlight your beautiful features and make you more confident.



Braids, braids, and more braids

Braids have always been in style because they come in so many different shapes, forms, color, style, and texture. Emporio Armani’s models were seen with loose braids at the fall show, Valentino’s models had well-styled micro braids, H&M’s models for the sport collection had braided pigtails which were such a hit for summer 2017 and are likely to stay as such in 2018. Other models had thick cornrows braided along the head which created imaginary mohawk.

Looking at such a huge icon as Rihanna herself and her Fenty models who were wearing cornrows, and other celebrities such as Halle Berry with her messy braids, Alicia Keys and her orange braids, Beyonce’s beaded braids, Coverne Cox’s honey blonde messy fishtail, Nicki Minaj’s microbraids, and Keke Palmer’s red box braids, we can assure you that braids will dominate in 2018. Messy braids, loose braids supported not by an elastic but just a few bobby pins stuck straight up into the braid, big braids, fish braids- no matter what type of braids you choose you will be following the latest trends.

Other trends are pinning the hair by using countless bobby pins, thus creating the illusion of a short hair. This way women can see how they look with a short hair without having to cut it short and then regret having done it. Tom Ford’s models are seen with such hairstyle and everybody loves it. If you ever wondered how you would look with short hair then you should definitely give this hairstyle a try.




Pump it or curl it!

Pumping up the volume of your hair is going to make people turn their heads after you! Nina Ricci and Max Mara’s models have 60s inspired volume done by teasing the hair. This hair trend will make you feel like a diva! Last major trend are the curls- you will not go wrong with any type of curls- from beach waves, to Louis Vuitton’s  model’s big curls and Max Mara’s and Fendi’s models’ soft curls. Curls have always been so feminine and classy – you will not go wrong with any type of curls.

Summer of 2017 is the best time for the ladies who prefer a more natural hair look. You can let nature do its work by letting your hair gray or your roots grow and still be part of the modern tendencies.

This is for the ladies who would like to do something with their hair but are not fond of big changes. If you have natural brown hair, straight, wavy or curly, several tiny highlights added to it will do miracles.

One great way to experiment with hair color is using quality hair extensions. Out stylists at Chicago Hair Extension Salon will gladly assist you on choosing the best nuance, extension method and hairdo that will suit your face.
