With fall upon us, there are interesting goings-on in the world of hair fashion. Unlike previous years where classic and simple styles have ruled the runways and streets during the autumn months, many fashion experts are pointing out a few unlikely trends that are turning into major hits.

Versatility is the name of the game for women’s hairstyles in 2010. Haircuts that will allow you to easily maintain the style and still allow a good deal of flexibility will continue to be popular in 2010.
Classic looks in hairstyles this year may have a bit of a twist – a fanciful little touch that can be added to make the style seem bold at times and understated at others. Hairstyles, whether long, medium or short, will be better thought-out and purposeful. 2010 is not the time to appear at an event with the bedhead look.
The word to remember in the summer of 2010 is versatility, giving women more options on what to do with their haircuts. Fringes will still be popular, whether they are sweeping, rounded or short. They are beautiful, soft and give your hair an extra healthy shine.
Using versatile women’s hairstyles tends to suggest that there may be a shift to long hairstyles, since the more hair you have, the more you can do with it. Some women will be allowing their short styles to grow out, and letting their bob styles lengthen.
The trend in 2010 has been longer hair, although as summer approaches, some women will still opt for shorter styles. Longer styles do help to accommodate various facial shapes and body types, and natural hairstyles are coming more into style as well.
Diversity is also important for hairstyles of 2010. People who really like long or short hair will probably not change, but other women who change to adhere to trends will be able to adapt their styles to their own look.
Highlights will probably be more in style as summer 2010 approaches. The contrast is often only moderate, but the placement of the colouring makes it a modern, attractive choice for darker hair. It’s not too flashy and or too subtle.
Spending time in the great outdoors is one of the many perks of summer, but it can really do a number on your hair. Increased time outside means increased exposure to sun and wind, not to mention chlorine and salt water. Here are some tips to get the most out of summer, without ruining your tresses.
Whenever possible, wear a hat. This seems like common sense, but it’s a tip that many people forget about. Wearing a hat shields your hair from the drying wind, and it also protects your hair from damaging UV rays (your skin isn’t the only thing UV rays are bad for). It’s so easy to find a cute hat these days—there are even waterproof hats, made especially for wearing while lounging on the pool deck.
Use hair products that contain UV protection. There are all sorts of products that now sport UV protection for hair. If you can’t wear a hat, at least use a mousse, conditioner or hairspray that contains UV protection. These products are more expensive, but when you consider the cost and effort involved in trying to fix damaged hair, they are well worth the investment.
Hair that is exposed to the sun, wind, and salt or chlorine-filled water all day dries out easily. Dryness equals breakage and/or frizz, neither of which we want. To combat this, be sure that you wash your hair as soon as possible after being in the pool or at the beach so that the chlorine and salt have as little time to do their damage as possible. But during the week, when you’re not in the pool or at the beach, try spreading your shampooing out to every-other-day. This will help your hair retain much-needed moisture. (If you’re planning a trip to the beach for Saturday, try washing your hair Thursday night, skip the shampoo on Friday, then shampoo and condition Saturday night.)
After your shampoo, try using a leave-in conditioner. These can really help retain the moisture in your hair, which is very important for protecting your hair from breakage.
Taking care of your hair means you can enjoy the sun and look great all summer long!
When the holidays roll around you’ll want to wear special short or medium hairstyle to your festive holiday parties. You might decide to wear an updo formal hairstyle like a French twist, braided coil or wavy chignon. Any of these hairstyles will show off an elegant look at parties.
You may have seen the French twist updo before worn by some celebrities. It looks especially good with hair accessories, and is sure to provide you with a flirty and soft look. The traditional French twist updo medium hairstyle is one that is used very frequently. You probably would not be able to do a French twist on your own hair, so make an appointment with a hairstylist for the best look.
A braided coil updo hairstyle is a very elegant style, especially for those with naturally long hair. Your hair will be braided into a single longer braid in back first, and then it will be pinned on top of your head in a circle. This look was once retro but has become popular once again, so you will truly stand out if you have long enough hair to wear this style. If your hair isn’t long enough to do this, you can buy braided coil pieces and add them to your natural hair.
The wavy chignon formal hairstyle works best if you have naturally curly hair. You will curl – unless your hair is already curly – first, and create loose, long waves with a hot iron. Gather your hair into one high, loose ponytail and wind that into the shape of a bun. Then place curls near the outside where you can see them.
Messy buns are another hairstyle that looks great for the holidays. It’s similar in style to a wavy chignon, although it works on wavy or straight hair as well. Your hairstylist can leave out wisps of hair purposefully, so that they hang daintily around your face.
Summer is almost here, and with it come the comfortable, short hairstyles of the season. Short hairstyles are cute and controllable, and you may find yourself yearning for short or medium hairstyle even if you have long hair. Don’t be afraid to lose the long hair for the season, you’ll be so much more comfortable.
There are quite a few short haircuts that you can wear to be comfortable and stylish in the summertime. They are animated and appealing, and sometimes more interesting than your long hair. Let a hairdresser help you select the best short hairstyle because they will be able to select a cut that will flatter the shape of your face.
If you’re looking for a really hot short hairstyle, you can visit a variety of hair salons. The stylists will know the most current trends in short and medium hairstyles. You can also select pictures or descriptions from the Internet and take them to the hair salon with you to give the stylist an idea of what you want.
Short cuts and bobs started in the roaring twenties and they are back in favour again today. You’ll see them fairly often in the summer because they are a good way to keep medium and short hair well-tended and out of your face. Your hairstylist should not have any trouble giving you a bob, if she or he feels that the cut will fit your face.
Other cuts work well in the summer. Celebrity haircuts like the short style worn by Meg Ryan are quite stylish. It’s interesting and a little wild. Your hair may be brushed in any manner of ways to make the style work for you. You can brush your hair back, or have it cut short along the sides. You may want to add highlights to your summer short hairstyle as well.
If you like recreating celebrity hairstyles, your hairdresser may advise you, properly, that not every cut looks good on every person. What looks great on some stars may not work well for you, if your face is a different shape.
