THE TOP HAIR TREND PREDICTIONS FOR 2017
FROM JOHN FRIEDA
The New Year is here, and that means a fresh start to everything, including your hair! These products will help keep you and your hair trending for 2017. See below for ideas on how to achieve these looks.
THE LOOK: HEALTHY , SHINY HAIR
HOW TO ACHIEVE: This year, super healthy looking hair is all the rage. Whether your hair is short or long, creating glossy, wavy and healthy looking hair is what will be on trend. To achieve this look, use a hydrating shampoo and conditioner like the NEW John Frieda Frizz Ease Daily Nourishment Shampoo and Conditioner to give hair an immediate dose of moisture in the shower. Colour need a boost? Try a clear at home gloss on any hair color—apply John Frieda Hair Care Luminous Glaze Clear Shine once a week to add intense shine to hair.
THE LOOK: SOFT WAVES
HOW TO ACHIEVE: In addition to the shiny hair trend, soft waves are also in style for 2017. Creating these waves adds tons of volume and instantly enhances your look. Create these soft, natural looking waves by using John Frieda Frizz Ease Dream Curls Air-Dry Waves Styling Foam.
THE LOOK: NATURAL OMBRE HOW TO ACHIEVE: Celebrity Colour and Hair Stylist Corinne Adams of Serge Normant at John Frieda Salon says that ombre hair is still trending right now, “Natural blonde and brunette ombre hair is still on trend, and we’re seeing it everywhere so far in 2017. By using John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Visibly Brighter, Visibly Deeper, or Sheer Blonde Go Blonder In-Shower Lightening Treatments, you subtly lighten or deepen your hair color without having to consistently visit the salon for touch ups. Because the Treatments only take hair one shade deeper or brighter, the end result is extremely natural—simply an enhanced version of your normal shade.”

My Thoughts: I have two teenage daughters with long beautiful hair. Both girls love to complete their everyday looks with hair accessories from Mia Beauty. The Bun Ease is definitely a favorite in my home right now for my girls. I wish I had a picture of my daughter, Myelie wearing hers. I forgot to snap a photo of her when she had it in her hair the other day. Anyway, it makes the most perfect bun on top of her head. Her friends are always asking how she gets her 'bun' to look so great. Mia Beauty makes it so easy to achieve such fun and trendy hairstyles so easily and without much effort!
