Like makeup, hairstyle trends come and go. And keeping up with what’s hip can be a little exhausting, not to mention costly. Good thing there are timeless hair looks for those of us who don’t feel like jumping into bandwagons. Let’s take a quick look at a few examples.
The Sleek Bob
All about chic and sophistication, this hairstyle is almost always a thing. A favorite among those with natural straights, the sleek bob offers styling flexibility according to your hair length and texture as well as the shape of your face. Prep hair using a volumizing shampoo, then moisturize for shine. Get the best volume by blow-drying with a rounded brush and finish in style with a flat iron going over the entire head.
Here’s a hairdo that can portray a variety of characters and moods — polished, unconventional, chic, sexy, or just simply relaxed. No wonder many celebrities don this hairdo on a wide variety of occasions, from daily errand walks to red carpet events. With a blow-dryer, a medium-sized curling iron, a wave-enhancing styling product, and some finger-combing and gentle hand-tousling, you’re on your way to achieving this fresh, beach-inspired look.
Face-framing highlights do what its name says: they provide the face with a frame of highlights which tend to showcase facial features. These highlights bring out the best of one’s facial beauty in a subtle and natural way that it suits even those who are not into hair coloring or highlighting. Highlights that are a few shades lighter than the original color works perfectly for achieving an overall natural look. A little less natural and with emphasis on contrast would be combinations like light gold highlights on dark brown hair and icy shades on light-colored hair.
There are a lot of other hair looks that have transcended generations and it’s good to know that we don’t have to be slaves to trends to look awesome or to look just the way we want to. Always keep in mind that we have hair style options that are easily achieved, fad-proof, and here to stay.
