As the year 2007 draws to an end, many of you must be thinking of donning a new look for 2008. A fresh new look to go with the New Year surely sounds like an enticing option. But before you take any great plunge into changing your hairstyle, take a look at the trends that have been predicted for the year 2008. Some of these are actually repetitions of hairstyle from bygone eras. They are all set to make a comeback with much style and elegance. Check out which hairstyle trend for 2008 will change your personality.
A simple hair cut or a simple change in hair style can entirely transform our personality. Of course, as there are two sides of the same coin, there are two consequences of changing your hairstyle - Good and Bad! You may look like a trendy chic and even inspire a couple of your friends to copy your hairstyle or you may look like you have just plucked out your hair in frustration! It is recommended that before going in for a drastic change of hairstyle, you must evaluate whether or not it would look good on you.
Predicted to be one of the hottest trends for the coming year, short bobs are planning to make a comeback with immense elegance and style. The cuts can be layered and a lot of texture look can be used. The latest pop sensation to get the hot bob cut is none other than Rihanna. Check out her cut that collects on one side of the face to form an asymmetric frame. Since she has a narrow face cut, it suits her like a dream. However, before getting this chic look for yourself, consult your hair stylist or go to the nearest beauty salon to check if this look would suit your face or not.
Soft Wedge Haircut
Another hot hair style trend for 2008 is the soft wedge haircut. This short hairstyle adds much sparkle to your face and shows the playful side of your personality. Since a lot of texturing and layering is used, your hairstyle looks soft and very smooth, in case of cut-style. Even people with thin hair can go in for this short cut, as it adds volume. It is suitable for almost every face cut and adds charm and confidence to the personality.
Razor Cuts with Layers
The Razor cut has always been around, on and off. But for 2008, a razor cut with a lot of emphasis on layering is being predicted to be absolutely in. You may have short or long hair and the razor style can be implemented beautifully, without compromising on length. Get a cut that enhances your facial features, adding much softness and playfulness to your look. Try to get more layering around the ears and on hair that falls on the side of your cheeks. With a short razor cut, a messy look can also be adopted, especially if it suits your relaxed and carefree lifestyle!
Curls and waves will be transformed into straight and smooth flowing hair. Even if you love to keep those waves, make sure they just gather at the ends of your hair and the rest of the hair is absolutely straight. Sleek and smooth texture is the keyword for 2008. So, get prepared to straighten out those curled locks for a sleeker and newer you!
Hair Color Trends
Planning to get a hair color? Forget blonde and other light shades. Go in for darker hair colors like burgundy, dark chestnut brown, dark auburn, etc. For 2008, the mantra is to have a rich color in dark hues and subdued highlights. Your hair color should be such that it should lend a very different look to you, but at the same time, it should not be very loud or ‘in your face’. With this information and styling tips, you go ahead and have a fantastic New Year, with a trendy hair style that will surely make heads turn!
