Sexy Bedhead Hair – Messy Waves and Curls

Eureka!  We can now just roll out of bed, run our hands through our hair (and a bit of texturising product) and we’re ready for whatever the day throws at us!  It’s time to work with your hair’s natural texture and volume with a hairstyle that looks casual, natural and a bit messy.  If you have naturally curly hair, enjoy the volume that comes with wavy hair and  embrace your curls.

Short Blunt Hair Cuts with a Difference

We’ve mentioned ‘bedhead hair’ and this is the look you should be trying to achieve with your short hair style too.  Ask for a blunt short bob and then use the right hair products to give it some texture and movement.  We love Coco Rocha’s short blunt bob which is softened by being less ‘styled’.  Cameron Diaz opts for a blunt bob but softens it with a longer fringe, while Michelle Williams really suits her short pixie cut.

Casual Braids & Plaits

Have fun with braided hair because anything goes in 2018!  Try plaits on top of  plaits (wrap two sections around a central plait) and pull out some strands of hair for a loose hairstyle. Opt for a low side parting and plait your hair to one side or wind your hair into a bun and tie a scarf around it.

Men’s Hair Trends for 2018

Men are paying more attention to their hair than ever before so don’t get stuck in a rut with your hairstyle. Change it up every now and then by creating subtle changes to your style.  Try a low side parting or run some texturising products through your hair for a cool, messed-up look.  Quiffs remain firm favourites for 2018 and can be worn slicked back and smart or casual and a bit messy – depending on the look you want to achieve.

Long hair for men is making a comeback but it has to be neat, tidy and clean.  Don’t shy away from tying your hair back either if you want a more professional look but opt for a top knot.  Beards continue to divide opinion but there is no doubt that a well maintained full beard is a strong trend for 2018.
