We can’t get enough of chatting about trends now that we’re starting to get a feel for some of the trends we can expect in 2017. In the past year we’ve definitely had a lot of flashback trends happening, and we’re all about it. It doesn’t look like we’re stopping with the trend revival in 2017, either. In fact, it’s appearing as though 2017 loves retro inspired hair. Yep! We’re going to be seeing all sorts of retro inspired hair throughout the next year, and if you’re like us you can’t wait for it all. You know we’re always here to keep you up-to-date so we’re sharing some of the retro inspired hair looks you can expect to see this year.
Loose Waves + Accessories
Loose waves is definitely a retro inspo vibe that we’ve all known and loved for quite a while. While there are so many different takes on waves, during couture fashion week it seemed to be about those retro inspired waves that are so classically chic. Some designers switched things up a bit by adding some fun accessories to the loose waves to give us even more retro inspiration (hair accessories are a must with retro-inspired looks!).
The Sleek Ponytail
There’s something about the sleek ponytail that always looks chic, probably why it’s such a retro/classic look that designers revisit every so often. It’s clear we’re having some major retro inspired hair, based on some of the recent fashion shows that have taken place. Many of the models had sleeked back ponytails that were very classic, but also made a major retro statement. It’s a look that goes with so many different looks, and has a way of adding a retro vibe to really any look. So we’re not surprised to see all of the sleek ponytail looks that appear as though they’re going to be making some major retro inspo this new year.
The Low Ponytail Braids
Another classic, retro-esque type of hair style that we noticed on quite a few runways during couture fashion week recently was the low ponytail braids. Braids have definitely been having a major moment in the past year or two, but with the low ponytail braid it’s giving us some retro vibes that we’re all about. Many designers added some accessories to the braids to add to the retro inspiration – and of course to switch up the traditional braid look that we all know and love.
We couldn’t forget to mention the use of clips being added to hair styles. Retro hair styles always made use of clips in unique ways, and during the recent couture fashion week the designers were getting some major retro inspiration and using clips to create completely unique hair styles that really added some retro edge to the looks. Many were adding clips across the top of the heads in a traditionally slicked back hair style – talk about adding a different element to the hair style, right?
Do you have a favorite retro inspired hair style you think is going to be popular this year?
