New Hair Trends to Watch in 2017
horter loose or natural waves will make their mark in 2017, according to Sun Ju Hirsch, stylist at Rita Hazan Salon in New York City.
DEEP SIDE PART
This works with any style, but Robinson sees the deep side part being particularly big paired with shorter lengths.
For perma-blondes, it's time to consider doubling down on the bleach. "Blondes are always popular for spring too, and I love adding highlights to frame the face and give a brighter look," says Cunningham. Celeb colourist Sharon Dorram adds, "Start with a golden blonde base, whether it's natural or from a single process colour, and then ask your colourist for golden blond and baby blond highlights and to go slightly lighter on the ends."
Be less obvious when it comes to highlights"Whether you're a blonde or brunette, "deeper roots and multi-dimensional ends will still be a trend, but with less contrast between the tones, making a softer, less harsh," says Lucie Doughty, John Paul Mitchell Systems Editorial Director.

A slightly wavy bob with a liiiiittle bit of layering to lighten up the ends = the ideal way to ease into short hair for longer-locked gals
"Pixie cut" is way too sugary for this spicy look. More like: try-me-and-we'll-see-how-sweet-I-am cut.
The new beachy wave is shoulder-length—not longer.
Spritz some sea salt spray in your hair to achieve more natural waves like Miller's, and take a '20s spin on the bob by tucking one end behind your hair and securing with a pin, while letting the other strands blow in your face.

Forget makeup, hair contouring is the cleverest way to enhance your face shape
If dark colours can make an area look smaller and light shades can open up and widen a space, then you can create illusions to flatter your face shape with colours, not just on your face but your hair too.Hair colour contouring is a technique Art Team Director at Charles Worthington Marc Trinder has developed, and he let us in on the rules.
First you need to identify your face shape correctly. "Pull your hair back and behind your ears", Marc advises, "then looking straight into the mirror ask a friend to draw the shape of your face as they see it" (wipeable pen is advisable!). If your ears are creating the illusion of more width cover them with your hands so you just focus on your face.Match up your sketching to these diagrams below and try Marc's tips to enhance your specific shape.
HEART FACE SHAPE
To create a more oval face shape you want "lighter pieces woven around the
jawline and ears" – this softens the lower part of the face – and "fine light
tones with depth at the roots", says Marc.
Whatever your face shape you also need to take into account your tone. "The wrong colour can make you look drawn and wishy-washy" Marc notes. As well as your hair colour, your skin and eye colours make up your depth and you should try to balance out your cool and warmth with colour.
In the Charles Worthington salons they will hold a 'colour fan' broken into cool and warm tones under your chin to see which shades make you look healthier. "If you put the right colour on someone they're in focus – if not, it's a bit blurry" Marc says. Try it with your clothes in front of the mirror.
Very generally speaking if you're cooler toned you'd suit chocolate browns, creamy blondes or orangey reds. If you have a warmer skin tone you'd better suit chestnut browns, honey blondes and coppery reds.
So whether you want to brighten your complexion or balance your bone structure, hair colour could be your secret weapon.
OVAL FACE SHAPE
SQUARE FACE SHAPE
Marc explains that the oval face shape "is like the hourglass figure" – it's seen as desirable because it's very versatile. Most of you will suit anything, but he recommends talking to your colourist about bespoke colouring to add depth, texture or shine which will all make your features pop.
