Seasons may come and go, but when it comes to hair trends, some styles remain popular throughout the year. Case in point: the modern, textured looks that have been spotted all over social media and the red carpet. Check out the top styles to try out now.
The Beachy Pony
The topknot has officially retired—2018 is all about effortless ponytails with natural body and beachy texture. The best part? The lived-in look works for any occasion, from lazy summer days to date night. To create the look, start out by applying Eleven Australia Sea Salt Texture Spray to damp hair, then allow hair to air-dry. Next, use a 1 1/4-inch curling iron to add soft waves to any straight pieces, then pull the hair into a ponytail at the nape of the neck, making sure to leave a 1-inch section of hair out, then secure it with a hair elastic. Gently pull the hair at the crown of your head to add volume, then pull out a few face-framing pieces. Wrap the 1-inch section of hair around the hair elastic and pin it in place. To finish, tease ponytail if desired.
The Curtain Fringe
Equal parts retro and modern, curtain bangs are a huge trend at the moment and it’s no wonder why: The chic style looks cool and effortless, whether you want to wear your hair down or in a loose ponytail or bun. So how can you create the curtain effect without fussing with your hair all day? A lightweight spray, such as the Eleven Australia Give Me Hold Flexible Hairspray, will provide hold without leaving your hair with a stiff, crunchy feeling. Simply blow-dry your bangs, then create a center part and apply a few spritzes of hairspray to keep your bangs in place—and out of your face—all day!
The Slick Back
Whether you’re headed to a concert or lounging poolside, a slicked-back style is an easy way to spice up your look—and disguise dirty strands. To achieve that greasy, but not gritty finish, work Eleven Australia Slick Hold Styling Pomade through your roots, then use a wide-tooth comb to smooth back your hair and evenly distribute the product through your mid-lengths and ends. To finish, tuck the hair behind the ears for an edgy look.
