SAFW has come and gone and we couldn’t help ourselves but look out for the hairstyle trends on both the runway and street style. The great thing about fashion week is that it’s a good platform for fashion lovers, trend analysts and buyers to take notice of what will be on trend for the coming seasons. As much as most hairstyle are not seasonal, meaning you can wear any hair-do during any season, you still have to consider what’s on trend.
So here’s the list of the hair-dos that we believe are good for this season and will definitely get you noticed.
Going natural will always be on trend because nothing says “I’m not seasonal” like your own hair. So if you are lucky enough to have those long dreadlocks, do take good care of them and find a good hairstylist to style them according to your desires. Most people with dreadlocks tend to just stick to one hair do which takes the fun away from the hair. Don’t be shy to dye your locks, braid them or tie them in a different ponytail than normal. For those who love locks but do not have the patience to grow them, you can just get fake ones. These days for every real thing, there’s a fake one. Just make sure you get them properly done so they won’t damage your own hair.
The good old afro will always be a favorite hair-do because it screams power and confidence. Nothing says ‘don’t mess with me’ like a woman in an afro. Again make sure to get the right products to maintain it so that it can grow healthy and not break. If this proves to be difficult wear protectives wigs or box braids once in a while and then show off your afro on those days you know its well moisturized and won’t be damaged by the sun and dust . The afro is the most demanding hair-do but the results are worth it.
Listen! If the afro is hard for you to maintain but yet you want to keep your hair without relaxing it, you can just cut it short. You can never go wrong with short hair. The only thing it needs is water, a lit bit of hair food and a comb and bam you are ready to conquer the world. I know a lot of women who are too busy to spend a lot of time on their hair. So go and chop that hair and let it all breathe.
If you do have long relaxed hair, parting it in the middle will flatten it and keep it sleek. We also love the bun. If you do want to make a bun, make sure to get pins so that your hair won’t slip out. The trick with this hair-do is to keep it as neat as possible.
Come on! Who doesn’t love a bob hair-do ? The bangs will add drama to your bob and make you look cooler. Also if you want to go Naomi Campbell , you can get 18 inches and still keep the bangs. If you do not want to cut your hair, you can just buy a wig that has bangs and walaaahh….
Hair is fashion .
