Five Women’s Haircut Styles For 2017

We’ve all been there, haven’t we? Walking into the nearest hairdressers for convenience because we desperately need our hair done or want the latest celebrity hair craze, but not done our research and walked away with the worst hair cut and/or colour job ever! There are many salons out there that will take your money, not patch test you 24 to 48 hours prior to applying a professional hair colour, and not advise you whether the style and/or colour you want will suit you or is achievable with your existing hair!

Here at The Simone Thomas hairdressers in Bournemouth and Reading we feel a free hair salon consultation with our clients prior to whipping out the scissors and dye is of paramount importance. We like to keep up to date with the latest hot looks and trends and our stylists and colour experts are always updating and honing their skills at regular training courses.

So what women’s haircut trends do we think are hot for 2017?

The Eye-Length Fringe Women’s Haircut

Are you looking for a change, however feeling a little hesitant about a big chop? Well why not go for a long fringe? It’s a great way to change your look without doing anything too drastic.  Having a long fringe allows you to be more versatile and change your look, and let’s face it, if you hate it, it will not take long to grow out!

Mid-Length Chops Women’s Haircut

The lob has been wildly popular for years, but for 2017 it’s all about texture and layers for women’s haircuts.  This look is neither beachy waves or bouncy blow dry. To achieve the just stepped out of the salon look you need to use your straighteners in a different way – one to create a wave and not super sleek or very curly. Keeping your very ends completely straight to achieve this look – much like Kendall Jenner has worn. Ask your stylist for tips and to show you how to use your straighteners to achieve the flat wave – when she talks to you about the products she is using take her advice and purchase some.

Long, Sleek & Shiny Women’s Haircut

Long, sleek, shiny and blunt with a centre parting is a haircut style for women that’s going to be seen all over the place this year! Regular women’s haircuts are a must to maintain this style along with an investment in good hair products and a great hair straightener. If you are too impatient to wear this style but your hair is not long enough then invest in some hair extensions in Bournemouth and Reading at an experienced hair salon such as Simone Thomas. It would be worth booking in for regular salon blow dry’s’ to maintain this ultra-sleek hair style. We have seen a host of celebrities rocking this look on the red carpets all over the world including Rihanna, Jourdan Dunn, and the Kardashians. This is one of the big hair cut styles for women for 2017!

Bold New Cut and Style Women’s Haircut

If you are thinking of something like “out with the old and in with the new” – then 2017 could be your year to do it! Bold, edgy, blunt and graphic cuts are going to be huge this year! These could come in the form of bobs, undercuts and bold fringes. Ask your stylist at Simone Thomas hairdressers in Reading and Bournemouth for a great edgy cut and style for a new you in 2017! Take pictures with you to your consultation and have a frank and honest chat with your stylist before the chop!

The Shag Women’s Haircut

The shag was a surprisingly huge hit for 2016 and it doesn’t seem like it’s going anywhere soon. There will be a slight variation this year as the fringe and some layers will start to grow out which may resemble a grown-out shag! This style works great with straight or wavy hair and it can be worn long or short. It’s a great haircut style for women for 2017. You can even team it with the latest in professional hair colour such as Bronde.
