New hair ideas for summer 2017
These will be the hot, hot, hot hair trends this summer – from metallic crowns to denim hair – are you brave enough to take them on?
Never have to cry out ‘I can’t do anything with my hair!’ again. Here are 26 hot hair ideas for you to try out and perfect. From dyeing it the colours of the rainbow, to working an ombre/sombre to trying out some plaits and up-dos – these are the trends that will take you all the way through 2017 with (hair) style.
A is for Accessorise
Hairbands, clips, jewellery, ribbons and flowers – treat your hair like a blank canvas and get creative. Perfect for a bad hair day too.
B is for Balayage
A hair colouring technique that continues to grow in popularity. Instead of classic foil highlights, balayage is colour applied straight from a board onto the hair. Consider it ‘colourist free-hand’.
C is for Cork Screw Curls
Natural or fake, corkscrew curls are awesome. Play it pure with tight neat curl or go nuts and backcomb for a more grunge vibe.
D is for Denim Hair
We’ve moved on from electric blue and pastel blue to something in-between that gives double denim a run for its money – just check out this amazing look from Zoe London. We love it but will it catch on in 2017?
E is for Extreme Side Partings
Part that hair like you mean it – but make sure it’s on the side or it doesn’t count. Use plenty of product to keep those fly-aways in place.
F is for Fishtail Braid
Ok – it helps if you look like this but even if you aren’t Barbara Palvin, this whole new take on the fishtail plait down the centre of the parting, will still look impeccably on trend.
G is for Grey Hair
How much are we LOVING the grey hair trend right now!? You can go all the way with a solid grey or work a bit of grey balayage like Jade Thirlwall has done here. #goalsG is also for new rising trend trend: geode hair – this instagram worthy trend is inspired by the deep, rich colours within geode crystals.
H is for Hun
There’s a chance that the ‘hun’ could look a bit weird on people who aren’t Margot Robbie so give yourself a bit of mirror time to get this right for your face shape. It can be slick or messy but the result is very on trend.
I is for Ice Cream Shades
Who doesn’t want hair the same colour as ice cream? Or Parma Violets as Rita is rocking here.
J is for Jewellery For Hair
This model is giving us some serious hair jewel goals, but we’re thinking you can be a little more modest in your interpretation. A little sparkly clip or slide could potentially do the trick.
K is for Top Knots
This trend never, ever gets tired, especially for those of us who like to messily throw our hair up top. All Gigi Hadid needs is a pencil stuck in her topknot and she could pass as a GLAMOUR staffer.
L is for Lob (or bob)
What do you call a long bob? A lob of course! A great length if you want to keep it sensible lengthwise but still want to tie it up. Cara has set the bar here on the very fashionable lob. You can’t move for lobs in the fash pack right now. If you need some lob/bob inspiration check out these celebrity bobs – with over 100 to inspire you.
M is for Metallic Crowns
Why should the Queen get all the fun? And why should it only be acceptable to wear a tiara at a festival? Boo to that.
N is for Natural Roots
Do this trend before the grey sets in and you no longer have the choice! Can look sublime like Jennifer Lawrence here, or rock chick chic.
O is for Ombre
More aggressive than a sombre, the sombre is a more clear cut combo of two colours. Rochelle Humes owns this here.
P is for Parting Plaits
Looks kind of fiddly but if Kate Bosworth can do it – so can you. Here’s some more ideas and pictures so you can create the parting plaits of your dreams. Credit

Q is for Queen of the Dance Floor Curls
Every Saturday night out should begin and end with these gorgeous huge curls. If curls are your thing – check out these cool curly hairstyles..
R is for Rainbow Hair
Rainbow hair is a trend that we’re seeing more and more – from these bright primary colours to some amazing pastel combinations.
S is for Sombre
Sounds like a dance but isn’t a dance – it is fact a close relative of the ombre (also not a dance) but a two-tone effect. The sombre however has a much softer join where the colours connect.
S is also for Shampoo
Using the right shampoo for your hair type is as important as your skincare choices. We have edited the best shampoo for frizzy or thinning hair or purple shampoo to calm down your brassy hues or shampoo for an irritated scalp.
T is for Tousled Hair
Beach hair can be a thing on the beach and off, as Jamie Chung demonstrates here. A bit of sea salt spray scrunched into the ends of your hair and bam you’re all over the tousle.
U is for Unicorn Braids
Not for everyone, but certainly one to try alone with the curtains drawn and the lights down low. If you can pull it off – you are a nothing short of a woman with the powers of a mythical beast. Like Gigi. Obvs.
V is for Volumous Hair
Big, beautiful and super glam. Amy Adams works the volume with her gorgeous red hair and we’ve got major hair envy.
W is for Wet Look
Think Kim Kardashian invented the wet look? Think again. Jennifer Lopez was rocking these slicked back vibes way back when she was just still Jenny from the block.
Get some slick inspiration from these guys.W is also for weird and strange beauty and hair trends – holographic hair anyone?
X is for XXL long Hair
Rapunzel knew she was on to a hot trend when she grew her hair long. Yes you use it the get princes to climb up your tower.
Y is for You Do You
No dying, no cutting, no styling…(ok maybe a bit of styling), but give your hair a break from chemicals and see what happens.
Z is for Zig-Zag Braids
This plaits are not actually as hard as they look – in fact if you’re not very good at braiding you could end up with one of these and no one would know any the wiser.Source : www.glamourmagazine.co.uk
