The coolest cuts for 2017
Plus, styling tips for copying these celebrity-inspired ‘dos
marie claire Contributor / November 16 2017
Last year we saw a lot of colour in the hair world. But 2017 took a much more elegant (and wearable) approach, with so many celebs changing things up with a stylish snip or pared-back approach to their hairstyles. There was something for everyone and while nothing was shocking or groundbreaking, all of our favourite styles and hair lengths got a chic update.
The update: Blunt ends. “This makes the finish heavier so hair looks thicker and fuller,” explains Justine Marjan, TRESemmé’s global ambassador and A-list hairstylist.
Style note: Experiment with different textures to emphasise the cut, from natural and wavy to sleek and straight. Try flat-ironing the ends then finishing with a shine serum to add a healthy sheen.
Celebrity inspo: Diane Kruger
Product must-have: Matrix Biolage SugarShine Illuminating Mist
The update: Lobs still rule, but now “we’re seeing shoulder-length cuts that are heavier on the ends and slightly longer in the front”, says Marjan.
Style note: “Use a flat iron to detail the face-framing pieces, then run a small amount of texturiser throughout for a more lived-in finish,” Marjan suggests.
Product must-have: TRESemmé Perfectly (Un)Done Sea Salt Spray
The update: If you love your lengths, then all you need to do is give them a trim to tidy up and even out the ends. Shake things up with your styling routine: “Less volume and less styling,” says Marjan.
Style note: Ensure you’re using the right shampoo and conditioner for your hair type. Post-wash, apply a leave-in treatment and let your strands air-dry. Or try massaging a styling cream into clean, damp lengths before you go to bed and wake up ready to go!
Celebrity inspo: Jessica Alba
Product must-have: Shu Uemura Art Of Hair Wonder Worker
The update: “This season’s bangs sit above the eyebrows for a bold statement that makes the eyes pop,” says Marjan.
Style note: Those with oval or heart-shaped faces and straight or wavy hair can pull this off – Marjan suggests spritzing hairspray at the roots then using a fine-tooth comb (plus lots of tension) to flatten any cowlicks.
Celebrity inspo: Bella Hadid
Product must-have: Redken Triple Take 32 Extreme High-Hold Hairspray
