4 Hair Trends to Try Now

Stay on-trend this season!

Wondering what the latest-and-greatest hair trends are for 2017? You've come to the right place. Keep reading to discover all the styles already making waves this year-plus, how to recreate them at home!

Your hair is your crowning glory. Don't let it fall victim to outdated styles. From voluminous curls to messy 'dos, we've scouted out the top 2017 hair trends you've got to try! Read on for the rundown on four on-trend styles you'll certainly spot this year (if you haven't already)-plus, tips on how to master each one like a pro.

TREND #1: CURLS, CURLS, CURLS

Curls are a big trend for 2017! From big curls with lots of volume to tightly-packed coils, be prepared to see a lot of gals embracing ringlets. Here's to letting our curls run wild!

Get the style: If you have naturally curly hair, you're at an advantage when it comes to this trend. To master the style, you may only need some hair oil or anti-frizz serum to tame flyaways. After a shower, you can also use a curl-enhancing mousse or gel to add some definition before air-drying. Easy, peasy. If your hair is naturally straight, don't be afraid to get a little help from a curling iron to achieve your desired curl. Set your curls with L'Oreal Professionnel Tecni.Art Infinium 3 Hairspray to help keep the style intact. If you're looking for a wavy look, try scrunching your hair with texturizing spray or brushing out your styled coils with a soft-toothed comb before applying hairspray.

TREND #2: SIDE PART VS MIDDLE PART

Are you team side part or team middle part? Lucky for everyone, both side parts and middle parts are in style this year-making cameos at a number of runway shows-so there's no need to choose between the two! Talk about a trend we can all get on board with.

Get the style: Regardless of where you choose to part your hair, you'll want a smooth, sleek foundation. Brush out any tangles and apply a small amount of smoothing cream to the crown. Next, use a comb to create a part that's in the middle or to the side (whichever you prefer). When you've reached your desired look, apply a bit of gel or finishing spray to keep the style intact. From there, you can choose to throw your hair into a low bun or tight ponytail if you don't want to wear it down.

TREND #3: WET-LOOKING HAIR

The wet hair look may not be your go-to style, but you might want to reconsider. Whether slicked back or twisted up, wet-looking hair is both edgy and effortless. No wonder it's a current favorite!

Get the style: Mimicking the slick shine of wet hair will, unsurprisingly, require the help of product. After showering, squeeze out excess moisture from your strands and coat them in hair gel or styling cream-like L'Oreal Professionnel Tecni.Art Sleek & Swing-from the root to mid-shaft. Next, run a wide-toothed comb through your hair to ensure that each strand is covered in product. You can opt to leave your strands loose or work them into a braid, top knot, or ponytail.

TREND #4: MESSY HAIR

Messy hair is being celebrated in a big way this year. And by messy, we mean haven't-used-a-hairbrush-in-weeks level messy. This is great news for lazy girls who can't be bothered to tame flyaways.

Get the style: Achieving messy hair could be as easy as rolling out of bed, using your fingers to liven up your strands a bit, and heading out the door. This no-fuss technique can be the best thing to ever happen to you, or the opposite. Bed-head hair can definitely look a little too disheveled for the public eye in some cases, so heed with caution. For a bit more control of your messy hair, tease the crown for extra volume and incorporate texture spray (just spray and scrunch!) for a more polished look.
