Keeping with the trends has never been easy unless, of course, you
are one of the lucky ones setting the trend. It is easy to turn on
the latest fashion program, red carpet regalia, or pick up the most
recent copy of a high society of style magazine. This will show you
the latest, most expensive, ultimately chic dresses, slacks, colors,
hairstyles, and more for this or any other season. For those of us
who do not pull down a seven figure or more annual income, however,
there are plenty of things we can do to keep with the times when it
comes to the latest in style—including latest hairstyles.
Today, what’s in is what’s simple and sleek. Years
ago, complex and big was the way to get things done. The old beehives,
afros, even mullets and liberty spikes. While these hairstyles remain
in fashion even today for some sub-cultures, the more mainstream
methods are greatly simplified compared to those relatively outrageous
hairdos of the past. Short, long, medium, wavy, curly, straight—whatever
kind of hair you have or hair you want—there is a hairstyle
for you. If you are trying to keep up with the latest hairstyles,
though, you have a wide variety of options, and we are going to
go over some of those here.
Two concepts that are common today with hairstyles are simple and
free. With simple hairstyles, people are looking to maintain a sleek
look that takes little to create or maintain. Hair on the sides
and in the front is generally kept close to frame the face and accentuate
its features. These hairstyles are also typically layered to spice
them up a bit, as discussed in our Layered Hairstyles article. A
simple pony tail can be tied and tucked in a variety of ways. Hair
might be put up into a bun or simply allowed to flow downward. The
free hairstyles are those that require very little work to maintain,
even less than the simple and sleek hairstyles previously mentioned.
One type goes by a variety of names;bedhead, shag, or messy.
The idea is to cut and layer the hair in such a way that hair can
be washed or wet, apply a holding agent such as gel, run your hands
through it and its done. This particular hairstyle is actually quite
similar in appearance to what might look like simply rolling out
of bed out the door. Popular more among males, some women go with
this latest hairstyle as well. Other hairstyles might require a
little bit of tweaking or teasing before we head out the door, but
they remain easy to put together nonetheless. A simple quick curl
at the edges can add that extra volume to better frame our smile.
Using bobby pins to hold back sections of hair can prove to give
us an entirely new look.
When it comes t giving yourself the latest of hairstyles, take
a look at what is around you. Look in the magazines and on the TV.
Dont stop there, though. Visit your stylist, see what others
are doing. Look at what people have done to their hair the next
time your at the mall. The hairstyle that you want, that is right
for you. You can get something equivalent to the most recent showing
of latest hairstyles at a designers show at pretty much any
local salon, and it does not have to cost a small fortune, either.
