Whether your hair is long or short, curly or straight, the only way to wear it this spring is naturally. We must admit we’ve probably over done it with the straighteners over the years but now comes a more forgiving hair trend that will cause less damage and is achievable with less effort.
Harsh layers and severe bobs make way for easy curls and effortless waves with more natural volume. But there are to be no half hearted attempts at styles. If you’re going short, make it extra short. Whereas long styles need to be long enough to get the right amount of volume, whilst keeping the length! Curls work just as well on short hair as they do on longer hair. One of the styles for 2010 is the messy bob, sported by the likes of Danii Minogue. The basic shape is that of a short layered bob but texture is added by loosely curling the hair to give it an undone natural look.
Longer styles suit looser curls and have the length to pull off more of wave than a curl too. The waves should start lower down the hair rather
than at the root, about cheekbone height will give the most flattering effects. Long styles also have the advantage of pulling off another of this season’s hair trends; plaits. Lengthy plaits that sweep to one side scream summer days and boho chic, wear messy to really nail this look. Other up dos include messy buns and loosely pinned hair that looks effortless. This isn’t however always the case. The messy look can take some mastering but with a little hairspray, a hand full of Kirby grips and a bit of practice, we’re sure you’ll have this style mastered in no time!
