Top Three Hairstyle Trends

Top Three Hairstyle Trends

Nothing brings out a gorgeous hair color like the perfect hair style. The day’s of long waves being the only hair style trend are long gone and in its place are a plethora of hairstyles that range from fun and funky to sexy and sophisticated. Below are a few of my absolute favorites: The Lob: It’s funny when you think about it- what was once written off as the dreaded “in-between” phase is now a full on hair trend. I am loving this look on the likes of Kendall Jenner and Rose Byrne, just to name a few. You can play with your lob cut by switching up the part as both middle part and side part look fantastic. The lob is the biggest trend right now because it allows you to have malleability with your hair and play with the texture by wearing it in lose waves, curls, or stick straight. Braid-waves: For everyone who dreams of those beachy waves no matter what time of year, this look is for you. I am finding that the overall trend’s in hair are veering off of the use of hot tools and leaning toward more natural methods and top-notch products. Case-in point is this hair trend which enables you to ditch the curling iron and achieve those perfect waves all in a nights sleep. Simply braid freshly washed and dried hair prior to going to bed and gently brush out when you wake up in the morning. The final look will resemble something close to this. The Wob: A.K.A. the wavy bob, popularized by none other than Jennifer Lawrence! I love the wob because it is such a deviation away from the stick-straight bob styles we are so used to seeing. This variation is a more lived-in, texturized take on short hair (and the current trends are all about texture). Rocking the wob also gives you an automatic edge and overall cool-girl vibe.

Crazy Hair Trend: Velaterapia

Crazy Hair Trend: Velaterapia

There are no shortage of crazy trends as you may very well know- from fitness, to fashion, to nutrition, and now even hair! The latest hair care craze you may have heard about is called Velaterapia, the act of burning your hair with a candle in order to rid your strands of split-ends. At this point you are probably thinking, “But wait, aren’t we supposed avoid burning our hair?” And who could blame you, this fad seems pretty out there at first, but could it be that there is more to it? Velaterapia first caught mass attention when Victoria’s Secret model, Alessandra Ambrosio, posted an Instagram photo of herself getting the treatment done. To begin the process, the stylist  first separates your hair into sections. Next, each section is twisted, and finally a candle flame is gently grazed up and down across the twisted sections in order to burn off the split ends and leave your hair looking shiny. The process is said to seal the strands after burning off the split and damaged parts, leaving behind a passage of nutrients to its interior, and giving your hair a healthier appearance.It can be done on dyed or natural hair and is said to work well on all hair types. One Velaterapia treatment can take up to four hours, so if you are booking in appointment make sure you have ample time.  This sounds like a God-send, but is it safe and does it have possible long-term negative consequences for your strands? Where safety is concerned, my suggestion is to go to a professional. One YouTube search and you’ll have about twenty DIY Velaterapia videos which I highly discourage you from trying at home. Remember that one time when you cut your own bangs and lived to regret it? Imagine that feeling and multiply by 100 and you’ll start to somewhat understand how you will feel if you do an at-home Velaterapia treatment and it goes wrong. Ouch! As far as possible long-term consequences, there is a possibility that it might weaken your hair strands by making them more vulnerable. There just may be more effective way to deal with split ends (an old fashioned trim, for example). Would you ever try Velaterapia? Let me know if the comments below!
