Our Favourite Hair Trends for 2018

The new year means letting go of the old and embracing the new. With that in mind, our hairstylists at Plan B hair salon wanted to welcome 2018 with new hair trends you’ll be sure to see around Kelowna! We compiled our favourite and why we love them (and why you will too!)

1. #NirvanaBlonde Hair

Platinum blonde has been around for awhile, but it’s being revamped in the new year with Selena Gomez’s #NirvanaBlonde. This icy blonde throwback to the 90’s is perfect way to start off #2018 with confidence.

Selena Gomez‘s hair stylist shared the inside secrets about the colour transformation with insiders. Read what her hair stylist had to say about the brunette’s process to becoming #NirvanaBlonde.

2. Bangs

We’ve all asked the aged old question, “should I get bangs?” According to 2018 #HairTrends, it’s a resounding yes! And you’ve got lots to choose from.

We’re in love with the chic, laid-back look of the bardot bangs, also known as the curtain bangs. For this look, you want the part down the middle so your forehead can peak through. The best par? This is flattering for most face shapes!

#WavyBangs are another great option for your long locks. Victoria Secret Angel, #TaylorHill has made this stunning look a 2018 trend we’re sure you’ll be seeing all around Kelowna.

If you’ve got shorter hair, boyish bangs could be for you. They’ve been hitting the runways, and turning heads. This choppy and short fringe gives an edge to any short haircut.

5. Ribbon Highlights For Brunettes and Blondes

The smooth caramel ribbon highlight is absolutely stunning! We’ve dubbed it the 2018 version of ombre, and we’re loving it!

The caramel, sunkissed highlights give any natural hair colour from blonde to dark brown a pop of texture. The array of soft, neutral hues can either give your hair a soft fade, or a more vivid burst of colour.
