The Best Celebrity Hair Looks From 2017

The omnipresence of the celebrity world means that we are all influenced by our favourite celebs in some way, and more often than not, it’s their envious hair and beauty that gets us talking. With makeup gurus and professional stylists at their daily disposal, celebrity hair and makeup for the red carpet or other promotional events are always on point. If you’ve ever taken a picture of a celebrity into a hair salon with hopes of having the same hairstyle (who hasn’t?), then this Additional Lengths list of the best celebrity hair looks from 2017 is for you.

We’re taking a look at some of the most talked about celebrities of 2017 and focusing on their most beautiful external quality – their hair!

Kylie Jenner

We’re sure that you’ll agree with us when we say that Kylie is queen of changing up her hair looks, and 2017 has been full of amazing hairstyles and colours. The makeup mastermind Kylie Jenner is no stranger to using wigs to switch up her hairstyles, going from her natural, dark long bob to long blonde tresses in the space of one day. Her ice blonde locks for Halloween was a key look, whilst her Kylie Jenner Cosmetics collaboration video with her older sister Khloe Kardashian saw her with stunning ash blonde long hair. However, her trademark look has got to be her beautifully dark brunette hair which she often accentuates with matching hair extensions for even more length and volume. Kylie even embraced the pastel hair colour trend in September by giving her own take on trend with a gorgeous rosé colour.

Mirror the Kylie Jenner hairstyles by investing in a high quality human hair wig or hair on a wire product from our ranges here at Additional Lengths. Not only do they provide extra length at a moments notice, they also provide volume to lacklustre hair. Minimal commitment is required for our hair on a wire pieces – simply allow the halo of wire to fit over the head, adjust the wire to the shape of your head, and pull your own hair over the wire for a natural finish. Our Halo Hair Extensions come in various lengths and shades, so you can have Kylie Jenner hair in no time.

Ashley Graham

Flying the flag for the plus size modelling industry, American model Ashley Graham has had a great hair year. Racking up magazine covers at Vogue and Grazia, multiple fashion shows and designing her own line of beautiful lingerie, Ms Graham is inspirational in many aspects. Her go-to hairstyle that she adopts with her luxurious brunette locks is old Hollywood waves, parted at the side. Focusing on high shine, Ashley Graham’s hair looks healthy and full of life – exactly what we all hope for our own hair!

The famous model is also a fan of bohemian beachy waves that offer a low maintenance finish without compromising on the overall look. So, how do you do the perfect beachy waves? Luckily here at Additional Lengths we stock a great range of electric hair stylers to help you get those fresh off the beach loose waves. Use a Cloud Nine curling wand to create waves in the hair and let them drop naturally so the curl isn’t too tight. Muss up the hair with a texturising sea salt spray for Ashley Graham inspired hair.

Cara Delevingne

Not one to shy away from attention, this attention grabbing starlet shocked many fans with her drastic hair change in 2017. The Cara Delevingne hair crop saw her say goodbye to her infamous long dark blonde hair, and opt for a shaved head – a look that she totally pulled off effortlessly. In her 2017 Burberry campaign Cara displayed a punky bleached blonde cropped hair in a short pixie cut which showed off her signature dark brows perfectly. Our obsession with Cara Delevingne’s hair has really been taken up a step up this year, and has got to be one of our favourite celebrity hairstyles of 2017.

Ariana Grande

This superstar has really left her mark on this year, and her distinctive ponytail hairstyle is undeniably influenced 2017 hair trends. The Ariana Grande high ponytail is a classic look that she wears wonderfully, with her long thick hair tied up at the crown, and left straight or delicately curled for flattering flowing waves. Towards the end of the year, she treated her usually dark hair to a blonde transformation, though the darker locks will always be synonymous with her trademark hairstyle!

Get your own Ariana Grande long ponytail by smoothing your hair upwards and securing with a hair tie, and taking a small section of hair to wrap around the ponytail at the base for extra texture. We recommend using a clip on ponytail to achieve the extreme length Ariana is famous for, and with the slight curl at the end, it will look super natural to boot. An easy celebrity hairstyle to emulate, and a great way to look on trend without much effort – perfect!

What Are The 2018 Hair Trends To Look Out For?

All of the chocolate has been eaten, the decorations are coming down and the mince pies are long gone. For many people, the upcoming new year will ignite a feeling of change, and the first place we tend to think of is our appearance, and more often than not, it’s our hair that gets the main focus. Whether you’re bored of your current hair colour, or fancy going a few inches shorter at your next hair styling appointment, taking note of the hair trends will no doubt provide some inspiration. We’ve taken a look at the best 2018 hair trends and looks to watch out for, read ahead for the Additional Lengths take on what to expect.

Haircuts, colours & styles

The start of a new year often sparks inspiration in many to change up their current look, and step outside of their comfort zone by trying something new. Whether you’re considering something drastic, or just want to explore possibilities for your current cut and colour, there are many upcoming hair trends that may interest you.

It’s all in the bangs

Yes, that’s right, fringes are making a big comeback in 2018, but did they ever really go away? A popular face-framing technique, the humble fringe has had an update thanks to fashion week shows from designers such as Moschino and Tom Ford who gave their models a boyish, choppy fringe. Lightly feathered fringes are super feminine, whether fake or real! A messy fringe that rests just at the point of the eyebrows will flatter the majority of people, no matter your face shape. Leave your hair in all of its natural texture glory and simply run some serum through the mid lengths and lightly through the fringe to add shine.

Alternatively, a blunt fringe will also bring you right up to date with current hair trends as the thicker fringe taken above the brows is an easy to style look that suits everyone! The blunt fringe will also reflect light wonderfully, making hair look extra shiny, whilst adding a look of thickness to the hair.

Life is peachy

You’ll be aware of the pastel hair colour trend of 2017, with lilac taking the lead in beautiful unexpected pastel tresses. In 2018 though, you can fully embrace the pastel hair colour trend with a whole range of various colours – including peach. A stunning soft light pinky-orange will suit many different skin tones, and can be embraced with a full head or with highlights. Peach will be ideal upgrade for those with blonde hair, with some semi permanent options on the market. For those more adventurous with their hair dye choices, the aquatic tones of blues and greens will definitely hold appeal. Experiment with wash-in hair colours such as the range of colour rub hair chalks from Hair Flairs to try out various colours without the commitment of a dye.

Sweet toffee highlights

Ashy tones are taking a back seat in 2018 with a hair colour trend of toffee highlights or ‘babylights’ already being championed by models and actresses alike. Warm tones such as caramel and toffee work well with all hair colours and can be used to add natural looking highlights to the hair perfectly. Ask your stylist to put the toffee highlights through the mid-lengths to the ends for a sunkissed look.

Low chignons & buns

Nail that model off-duty vibe perfectly by sweeping your hair into a super on trend low chignon. Versatile due to this style suiting many hair types and lengths, a chignon is a chic hairstyle for everyday wear that shows off all of the multi tonal shades in the hair perfectly. Hair buns are a tidy hairstyle that can be ideal for work, but also can be messed up for a night out by bringing tendrils of hair down around the face. Pull the low chignon to the side for an off-centre hairstyle and use a flexible hold hairspray and hair pins for extra staying power.

Take it right to the top with a high bun or top knot that will elongate the appearance of your neck. Keep to the natural hair texture and muss up the ends of the hair for an ‘I woke up like this’ look, or slick back the hair from the crown with a hair oil for a sophisticated finish a la queen of the runway Bella Hadid. This is such a simple hair trend that anyone can achieve!

Hair accessories

According to several high end fashion magazines, such as Harper’s Bazaar, hair embellishments are getting ready to take over our hair accessories collection in 2018. Update French braids with metal clips for a touch of that on-trend metallic touch, or take it back to school with a pretty ribbon tied around a ponytail as a way to inject some colour and dimension to your hairstyle. Hair bands are also set to make a comeback in 2018, but if they conjure up images of ‘Alice In Wonderland’, think again! Simple hair bands that add a touch of decoration to a hairstyle are ideal for a low key look, whilst a statement making diamante hair band will be exactly what you need to wow the crowd for nights out.
