Your Go To 2018 Hairstyle Guide: 7 Hottest Hair Trends We All Love
Looking for a change in 2018? Look no further. Chez Vous Hair Salon has curated all the trending hairstyles in this guide, and there's bound to be one hairstyle you'll love and suits you.
Hair Trend #1: Smudging (a.k.a. Dark or Shadow Roots)
Yeah! Smudging or Dark Roots are trending in 2018, which means a lesser need for colour retouch! Smudging is done by applying a semi-permanent darker shade to the roots and then "smudge" it down the hair shaft to get a melted colour effect.
Alternatively, you may use your natural root colour as a base to minimise harsh lines.
Hair Trend #2: Long Luscious Waves
Defined, tight and pageant-like curls are no longer in trend. 2018 is all about loose big hair waves - the go-to hairstyle for many Korean-goddesses and celebrities.
Popularised by many A-list Hallyu female stars, this hairstyle is now a symbol of femininity and elegance.
Not surprisingly, it's voted as one of the top favourite hairstyles that men find it alluring.
Hair Trend #3: #PurpleHairDon'tCare
For 2018, the future for hair colours is looking very purplish - as Ultra Violet has been revealed to be the Pantone Colour of the Year.
As if we need another reason to fall in love with purple hair.
"Ultra Violet symbolises experimentation and non-conformity, spurring individuals to imagine their unique mark on the world, and push boundaries through creative outlets." By Pantone Colour Institute
Hair Trend #4: Wob
#Wob (or Wavy Bob) - the wavy take on last season's Lob (Long Bob) is the must-have hairstyle for 2018.
This season, #Wob sees a more relaxed and tousled approach. Wear yours with subtle waves for an effortless, "I-woke-up-like-this" look, though we all know it's not.
The best part, this hairstyle is a life-saver for women who desire more volume on their crown.
Hair Trend #5: Ash Brown Faux Balayage
Ash is one of the most sophisticated and versatile shades of brown that contains blue or green tints. Despite it being a fast-fading hair colour (for Asians), this hue still reigns top among Asian trendsetters.
Unlike conventional Balayage that looks better on tousled curls, Faux Balayage is godsent for women with straight hair. This technique mimics a Balayage effect by using Babylights (foil highlights), sombre and smudging.
Did we forget to mention that this technique fades beautifully to a beautiful blond Beach-Goddess "Balayage" look?
Hair Trend #6: C-Curve Hair
Such styles focus on creating subtle movements along the hair ends rather than defined curls or waves - giving a slight twist to your mundane straight-looking hair.
They are best coupled with the ever still trending K-pop airy fringe, for effective face-slimming effect (without going under the knife).
Hair Trend #7: Dark Cool Tone Brown
Subtle yet fashionable. This shade gives the wearer a mysterious and sophisticated vibe. Best suited for working professionals.
For fair skin Asians, this colour will make your facial features pop too.
