2017 Makeup and Beauty Trends
Bold Blush: To compliment the au-naturel look, a bold sweep of pink or peach blush on the cheekbones and eyes is a quick and easy way to look fresh-faced and give yourself that youthful flush. This is a beautiful way to brighten up your look and give a touch of polish and finish to your face.
2017 Hair Trends
High Ponytails: The return of the high ponytail is welcomed, especially if you're spending your days at the beach and want the hair away from your neck and back. Let them be loose or even messily twirled into a high bun, and you're right in style this year.
Half Up, Half Down: Half up, half down hair is back and it's big in 2017. Whether it's pulled halfway back and knotted in a bun or left long and loose in a ponytail, you'll want to experiment with a few of the many options.
Surf Girl Blonde or Bronde: Beachy blonde hair is trending this year as is a modern, more subdued "bronde" color which is a color somewhere between brown and blonde. Emulating that surf-girl look in both hair color and hairstyle is what we're seeing a lot of in
Extra Long Hair: XXL hair is hot! We're talking really long locks. Whether they're naturally you're own or you're getting some help from extensions, you'll be seeing more down-to-there hair everywhere.
Micro Braids and Mini Plaits: Braids are not going anywhere. This year's braided styles are smaller but still very much a big hair trend. From micro braids and mini plaits strategically places in hair, you're sure to see these interlocking accents on the beach, on the streets and on the runways.
Loose Hair, Natural Texture: Staying true to your hair's own natural tendencies and boosting them up a level is in this year. It's not forced or dramatically changed but simply chic and effortless. Loose, flowing locks reminiscent of bohemian beauty is what you're looking for. Pump up the volume with sea salt spray or just leave a little of that salt water in your hair after an ocean swim and let it be. Texturizer is also a good way to amp up fullness and let your hair be wild and free. Big hair, don't care!
Scrunched Beachy Waves: Take that loose, wavy hair a step further by scrunching it up with mousse (yes we said scrunch and mousse, just like back in the 80s...) and go for the wet, curly and somewhat crunchier look. Again, take a hint from the surfer girls for the out-of-the-ocean look for your hair—if you dare.
