My New Year’s resolution is always the same: Be Bolder. I hear from clients and friends all the time that say they wish they were brave like somebody when it comes to their hair. I’m here to emphatically tell you, you can be! I’ve compiled an easy list of New Hair changes for you.
1. Add Texture to Your Hair
Texture is having a major comeback, and no I’m not talking about your mom’s crunchy eighties perm. This year’s texture is all about effortless, undone, tousled hair.
2. Play with Temporary Hair Color
This is the perfect choice if you want to have fun for a few days or are a bit unsure if you’re a bold color person. Ask your colorists to melt the color into your current color to have a little fun. The pastel colors work best on blonde hair, but the rest of the family still show up on darker levels. This means that you don’t have to lift your hair first, so when I say low commitment, I’m not kidding.
3. Play with a Tonal Change with Demi-Permanent Hair Color
Have you been coloring your hair the same color for years? It’s time for a change. Demi Permanent color is an easy way to make a change to your color routine without making a major commitment. Tell your colorist you’re in the mood for a change. If you’re ready to try out a more trendy color then try rose gold. Rose gold was one of Pantone’s 2016 color of the year and it’s still in high demand. If you want to be even more on trend then try a shade of green. Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year is Greenery.
4. The Big Haircut
I’m a huge fan of a textured and choppy bob, or lob. It’s fun and fresh and totally on trend. You’re ready for a big, bold change. No kiddie pool test drive for you. You, my friend, are ready to dive right on in and make a big splash. Call your stylist to make sure that their shears are sharpened because you’re ready for a major chop.
5. Try Bangs
Bangs are the easiest way to change up your look without making a major commitment. It gives you the same excitement of a whole new haircut but with much less grow out time. My absolute favorite bang is long, slightly rounded and a bit messy a la Brigitte Bardot. They are flattering on all face shapes and transition into face framing layers easier than their blunt and heavy counterpart. They can be worn straight across the forehead, swept to the side or with a slight part.
