How To Style The Ombré Bob

Ombré hair is still very much in style, with many women choosing to chop their long locks for a more manageable shorter hairstyle. Although, shorter hair doesn’t always mean your hairstyles are limited. Try these quick and easy styles the next time you want something new, or simply refresh your look.

Soft waves

Loose, soft waves are perfect for women with short hair since they take almost no time at all to recreate. Use a curling wand with a thicker barrel to achieve loose curls, and remember to use a heat protectant! Then comb through the ends of your hair for a low-key look. Soft waves look amazing with an ombré bob because the colour graduation is perfectly sun-kissed.

Straight

Don’t be afraid to wear your hair straight every once in a while! Focus on creating some volume at the crown, otherwise this style can look flat and dated. Blow-dry the hair from the top, then hold it all in place with finishing spray.

Blunt bangs

Embrace a shorter hairdo by cutting some blunt bangs to frame your face. Not only will this look perfect for people with an oval or heart-shaped face, but will transform your entire look. Mist hair lightly with some sea-salt spray to achieve body at the ends.

Messy ponytail

It is easy to achieve a bohemian look if you have lots of layers framing the front of your face. Tie hair back into a small bun and ponytail, creating drama at the crown. Pin hair back, plait and twist it into place. Set the entire look with a spritz of hairspray at the ends.

Spring Hair Trends For 2014

With spring fast approaching, it’s time to take a leap of faith and give your hair a style re-fresh. This could involve chopping off those long locks, changing your colour or even trying out a semi-permanent shade. Regardless of the many options you have, below are just a few hair trends which will be huge in the spring and summer months ahead.

Get the chop

Many women are embracing shorter hairstyles which benefit the hair in many ways. Firstly, this removes the chance of split ends, and leaves hair feeling smooth and soft to the touch. Forget about cutting all those layers in your hair – sometimes a great haircut could mean just getting a straight cut down the bottom. Embrace the minimalist style by keeping hair voluminous at the crown.

Soft waves

If you weren’t blessed with naturally bouncy or curly hair, then the idea of creating artificial waves might seem foreign. Not only does dead-straight hair weigh down the rest of the face, but this look can seem quite dated. Embrace some movement in your hair by using a curling wand (the thicker the barrel, the bigger the curl). Stay away from thin barrels, since this will make the curls look artificial and fake. Spray in some sea-salt spray into your ends to maintain this un-done look.

Ombré

The two-tone hair trend isn’t going anywhere yet! If you’ve been thinking about trying out ombré hair, now is the perfect time. This trend particularly suits women with naturally light brown / dirty blonde hair, since roots won’t look too harsh in comparison to the lighter ends. The trick is to create a colour which has gradually faded from dark to light. Paired with a faux glow, this hairstyle will make you look sun-kissed all year round.
