Were you on top of the trends in 2017, or did you find yourself missing the boat?
Now that 2018 is here, it’s time to step up your game! Trendsetter or trend follower, the time to embrace the new year is now.
From runways all over the world to magazine covers from the biggest brands, we have already seen some of these become faves. Whether you love them, or want them to fade away like a bad dye job, here are the biggest trends of 2018 so far.
The Return of the 90s
The love it or hate it, the scrunchie has made a return to the runways, here in a low pony at @mansurgavriel making them look so cool for casual hair dos after decades in the hair fashion wilderness.

The decade that brought us Britney, Justin, and The Spice Girls is making a comeback in the most unconventional of ways. Everything from scrunchies, to butterfly clips, to embellished barrettes have been seen on the runway and in print.
If you thought you would never see these again, brace yourselves. They are here to stay.
Make Some Permanent Waves
Another throwback that is making a return is one that you may have never expected. While long shaggy beach curls have become a mainstay, the way we create this look is taking a decided turn and going retro. The use of perms to create those long waves have become increasingly popular over the last few months and appears to be making huge waves already.
If you love the beach wave look, but are over the hassle of curling and blowouts, a perm might be just the right thing for you.
This is a look that we aren’t quite on board with; after all, long shaggy brows don’t exactly scream beauty. It’s hard to argue with the designers, however, and the long untrimmed brows have become more and more prevalent over the last few months.
Only time will tell if this is a trend that will stick around, or like colored armpit hair, meets the clippers.
Shine in Silver
The last few years have been filled with candy colors and even the flat grey that was dubbed “old lady chic.” That old lady look, however, has been given new life with the addition of dark and light undertones that give your locks a silver sheen.
The addition of dark blues and purples are only adding to the trend, letting the silvery colors glisten in any season.
Tiny embellished braids have taken over the fashion world for the past few months, but 2018 appears to be the year that they will come into their own. The tiny plaits have recently been embellished with gems and ribbons that help you make a statement people will not forget.
This year is all about the shag, and the shaggier the better it seems. From long banged pixies, to uneven fringe, the more your hair embraces the unkempt style of 2017 the better. This is one trend from 2017 we are excited to see hold over, not only do these cuts give a certain air of comfort to your beauty, but they can be pretty easy to maintain.
