Fortunately for all of us who don't want to spend an hour styling our hair each morning, that natural, lived-in style will be big in 2017. Celebrity hairstylist Marc Anthony told The List that in addition to the shag, natural hair is the way to go this year. "There is a shift to a bit of a more natural finish going into 2017," he told us. "Hair with natural wave, hair that has curl… it's a trend that will remain in variation this year." So you didn't just roll out of bed and go to work because you overslept. You were just rocking the latest 2017 trend.
Celebrity colorist and COLOR Salon owner Michael Boychuck also sees us going in a more natural, minimal direction with both haircuts and colors this year. "2017 is all about getting back to basics," Boychuck told The List. "Trends tend to come and go, and we've seen it all from glitter to shaved heads to neon and pastel palettes, but there is something about a classic, timeless cut and color that will never go out of style."
It turns out this trend toward natural hair could be a reaction to what's on the runways right now. "Fashion is all over the place right now but one thing in common is there are lots of prints and colors," Marie Robinson, owner of the Marie Robison Salon in New York City told Elle. "Hair usually balances that by being more subdued, natural, and softer in both texture and color."
Celebrity hair and makeup artist JoAnn Solomon is also ready for her clients to embrace a more natural look. "Natural hair, both afros and curly hair, will be in full bloom," she told us. "The freestyle will be on all runways." And the hair on top of your head isn't the only place where you should go natural. Full brows are back, so Solomon recommends trying microblading for a natural, polished look. During microblading, the stylist uses a microblading pen to draw individual hairs into the eyebrows. This gives you a fuller look without the harsh effect of tattoo makeup.
