Summer Hair Trend: Baby Bangs
This summer, we’re throwing it back to the ’60s with Audrey Hepburn inspired cropped bangs. Does the style look familiar? It should! Cropped bangs are a hit on the runway and A-listers like Emma Watson and Emma Roberts have rocked this retro look on the red carpet. ‘I’m obsessed with baby/micro fringe, it’s the perfect way to make your haircut modern and open up your face,” said celebrity stylist, Christopher Naselli.
Did You Know?
According to Pinterest’s top 100 trends for 2019, more than 51% of their bang’s searches include above the brow bangs.
How to Get the Look
To maintain your bangs you will need to visit your hairstylist every 3-4 weeks to reshape them. Sounds like too much of a hassle? Opt for a faux fringe that guarantees instant style and is 100% commitment free if you decide that a cropped fringe is not for you.
Summer Hair Trend: Low ponytail
As you can tell from our first trend, 2019 summer hair trends are all about bringing classic looks back. Now you simply cannot do classy without a low ponytail. This minimalist look is super quick to pull off and will upgrade your style from 'nice' to 'fashion forward" in an instant. The low ponytail is definitely one of our favourite go-to summer hair trends this year.
Did You Know?
According to instyle.com, a low ponytail creates the illusion of a sculpted face by elongating your features. On the flipside, if you have a slim face, you can add volume to your cheeks with a low, textured pony that also draws attention to your amazing jawline.
How to Get the Look
Got short, thin hair? Use clip-in hair extensions to add volume and length to your ponytail. This is one of the oldest tricks in the book and one that even Ariana Grande swears by. After creating your pony, take a 1-inch section of hair from the underside and of your pony and tightly wrap it around your hair band and secure it underneath with bobbies. Then, finish the look off with strong-hold hairspray.
Summer Hair Trend: Hair Accessories
Fun, bright, big and bold accessories have made the biggest come back this year and we're super excited about this summer hair trend that can elevate any hairstyle.
