Autumn Winter 2017-2018 Hair Trends

With a new year shortly upon us, there’s no better time to take stock and consider the key hair trends over the last year and how we can switch it up in the months ahead. From super sleek to coloured streaks, we look over the autumn/winter 2017 catwalk shows and shine a spotlight on the hair trends to take through to 2018. 


Super Sleek with Centre Partings

Get out your straighteners, as sleek, shiny, and centre-parted hair is one of the biggest trends of the moment.

We’ve seen the look on Lily Aldridge, Mila Kunis and Miranda Kerr in recent months, and the style is poised to make an even bigger splash this winter.

Whether you’re after a little extra length or a lot to re-create the pin-straight look, Great Lengths’ premium hair extensions will give you the helping hand you need. 

All Tied Up: Ribbons

Over the past few months, the classic black ribbon has dominated the fashion and beauty industry.

Spotted at Fashion Weeks including New York, London, Milan and Paris, it’s safe to say that the humble hair accessory has ascended to true trend status.

Whether you tie it around a ponytail or loop it around bun, the styles are endless, making the black ribbon one of the most versatile and easiest trends to DIY in 2018.

So what are you waiting for? Go forth, ribbons at the ready, and get all tied up.


Coloured Streaks

Coloured streaks were working their way down the runways at AW/17-18 Fashion Weeks, as seen on Gigi Hadid, who was rocking the look for Versace.

Whether you prefer to stand out and be noticed, or tread lightly with this trend, ask your stylist about our Crazy, Pastel or Jewel Fashion Colours.

With shades ranging from yellow to blue and everything in-between, when it comes to colour this season, there’s a hue for everyone who wants to experiment with this look.


Stretched out Waves

Girls gone glam was the theme at Brandon Maxwell, with the models sporting thick and voluminous stretched out waves – with the help of extensions of course.

To re-create a ‘relaxed wave’, simply use your straighteners to add a smooth bend to the hair and finish with a misting of Great Lengths Soft Finish Spray for a silky shine and to hold in place.


Romantic Hair Twists

Romantic hair twists paired with relaxed, loose and natural waves stole the show at Jenny Packham. Teamed with a classic red lip, what’s not to love about this style?

The feminine look is one trend we definitely feel will be filtering through into the New Year.

Whether you’re debating a subtle style shift or a standout colour makeover, why not book a consultation with your local Great Lengths salon or freelance stylist who’ll help and advise you on how to achieve your desired look.
