We’re not just talking about embracing trends, out with the old, in with the new kind of attitude. We’re talking about one of the crowd favourites of 2017 that’s going strong and we love it – natural hair.

Less is more this year, ladies and gentlemen. Ever since life got busier, we’ve all searched for ways to look good and feel good, without investing a lot of time and effort into our looks. Basically, no commitment and easy maintenance.

In addition to low maintenance, it has become increasingly important to be unique by embracing what your mum already gave you. And as soon as everyone realised that natural hair is amazing, and a low key asset to looking on point every day, the trend became all the rage.

Embracing your mane in its natural state motivated stylists to unleash their creativity and find the right cuts and styles to enhance the natural, free movement of hair and indulge in everyone’s  need for a simpler, yet chic do.

Natural hair trend isn’t just about washing your hair and letting it fall effortlessly. Not until you get the perfect cut. Give it a little shape, dimension and volume with layers, and you’ll be ready to embrace your imperfections and ditch hot tools, at least for a little while.

Careful layering accompanied with smart colour choices is used to create the free flow and movement of your hair, which is what this natural hair trend is all about. No perfect polished everyday looks. Less grooming, less taming, more of your natural self.

And if all these weren’t good enough reasons to let go and dive into this trend, we love it because it suits all lengths of hair. Shorter styles go for mid-length bobs that have more layers and texture. And we can’t forget about versatility! Natural hair is extremely versatile, as you can play around with it, change your hair part each day, and achieve a different effect for your everyday needs.

At the very mention of festivals everyone has a specific picture in mind, and Millennials all over the world jump online to hunt down the latest festival hair and fashion trends.

Festivals are popular amongst most millennials, as it’s a place of great music, festival fashion and cool hairstyles. But it’s also about experience, where you’re armed with your favourite clothing pieces and hairstyles that speak for themselves.

We do know that there are certain trademark accessories and styles that are always present during festivals, but this year we wanted to step outside of the box, and show you our four festival inspired looks.

Hidden Braids

The first look adds some extra dimension to your blonde hair, which may sometimes be just too boring for a festival look. No jewels, no flower crowns, no glitter, just a simple messy braid, peeking through her lovely tresses, along with a side hairline that gives some more showcasing space for the braid. It’s full of life, spirit and completely unconstrained by any norms existent.

 

Jewels on Jewels

This simple take on festival hair is going to give you serious hair envy, and we don’t blame you. The do is quite simple, with a plain old, centre part and strands that effortlessly fall in their own direction, crowned with a jewelled headpiece that’s so perfect for festivals, or any other formal event that requires you to be just a little bit extra. Not too flashy, yet just enough to achieve the desired vibe.

All About the Braids

When it comes to millennials, they all want to get away, forget about their problems, and focus on being themselves, in a judgment-free environment. This hairstyle, in particular, is the ideal representation of the freedom, creativity, as these braids are everything but ordinary.

Full head of jumbo braids, braided with a faux silver hair, that’s undone at the ends, leaving them a bit messy and in true festival vibes. This is a more edgy and playful and yet still one of the quintessential hairstyles of all festivals.

 

The Free Flow

Finally, it’s not just about the accessories, buns, turbans and braids. It’s also about using colour to showcase your inner playfulness, without a single twist and pull to your hair. This look is all about colour placement, and subtle hints of your wild side. A couple of delicate face-framing highlights, coupled with random highlights all around, and gentle free-flowing waves are IT. Or as the millennials would say, bombdotcom.
