The glitz and glamour of the divine Oscars are approaching for 2017! What do the Oscar hair trends 2017 Mean for you? We will get into that shortly but first let me tell you what they mean to me.
The Oscars are the one event that brings the couture trends down to the earthly level and allows them to be accessible to us all. In other words what you see on the red carpet at the Oscars in terms of hair, make-up, accessories, and fabrics are generally what you are going to see in the here and now of 2017. It is a fabulous place to gather ideas for your upcoming year and plan some changes to your looks for the seasons ( I firmly believe in 4 distinct changes for each season- but even subtle changes are a start!). Here are a few things to look for on the red carpet– I’m not talking about up-do’s and formal hair- look for color, textures, cuts, and accessories! Drummmm rolllllllll !
For the lucky few of us that made it through the 80’s without their hair falling out from bleach and perms ( or both!) we get to re-live the perm without utter hair destruction! You are going to see this texture at the Oscars and on many red carpets this year. There are wave barrel curling irons that are perfect for creating this look (tutorial coming soon)- Hot Tools 3 wave Barrell Will definitely do the trick!
Boyish haircuts are IN! You will see some celebrities strutting more masculine beauty around 2017 year with these cuts. Harder edges, angular architecture will bring out the tom boy in us all.
Contour Color technique is simply placing very specific and deliberate high or low lights to emphasize the personal features of your haircuts and facial structures you wish to enhance. Watch out for the Oscar celebs who really POP in the red carpet pictures from having this technique done to their colors!
Bangs or Fringe ( the more eloquent term) go through dozens of changes each year. Side, wispy, chunky, razored, short short, retro, and long to name just a few! For 2017 the HOT fringe to have is after the smoldering Brigitte Bardot (who always had the IT factor in more ways than one) You will DEFINITELY be seeing stars with these fringes on their Oscar red carpet walks. This style is so sexy with just a hint of fun and mystery all in one.
AHHHH yes! The era of natural texture has arrived! No need to fight your natural God-given curls because you are the belle of the ball this year (and truthfully for years to come) The Oscars are going to be showing the natural textures of the stars and trust me when I say this.. it will be a site to behold! Beautiful bouncy, slight fizz is IN and I welcome the change for all those who are lucky enough to rock what their mama’s gave you!
So those are just a few of the Oscar Hair Trends 2017 that you will be seeing! Grab some popcorn and a note-pad and take notes on all the fun trends you will see because they will be out in FULL FORCE for the Oscars!
