It’s that time of year, again… all the kiddos are getting ready to go back to school! Shortly after, the leaves will start turning yellow and falling off, and then the cold weather will roll in.
Pretty soon, we will all complain about how cold it is, instead of how hot it is. I always get depressed to see summer go, but as a hair stylist, back-to-school is the busiest time of year.
I decided to post the hottest hair trends for back-to-school 2012, since I know a lot of people are worried about making that great first impression.
Feathers and Multi-Colored Extensions
These clip-in extensions are extremely popular this year. Celebrities like Avril Lavigne, Katy Perry and Britney Spears have all been seen rocking them. You can find them pretty much anywhere. You just have to clip them in up underneath your hair, so that you can’t see the clip and then you’re good to go. Here is an awesome video on how to do them yourself.
To be honest, this never goes out of style. It’s always a fun way to spruce up the hair you already have.
This style has become more and more popular over the last few years. It’s really easy; you just have to braid your bangs and pin them to the side. You can cover the pinned part with more hair if you want and you can use many different types of braids.
Blunt bangs are also making a come-back this year. I recently cut my bangs like this. I think they are so cute and look really stylish and looks exceptionally good on people with long hair.
Braid Wrapped Around Ponytail
This look is pretty simple; you just have to put your hair in a ponytail, and then take a piece of it and braid it. When it is braided, you just wrap it around the ponytail and pin it in place with bobby pins (make sure to hide them). This is a very stylish and also a quick back-to-school style to do.
Fishtails are very popular this year, especially when you wear them on the side like this. I’m not quite sure how to do a fishtail, but you can search for tutorials on Google. They are also pretty simple, yet stylish.
A quick, age-old trick for this look is to braid your hair before you go to bed. When you wake up, just undo the braids and pick through it with your fingers. It is awesome if you don’t have a lot of time to get ready for school in the morning. Read more about the must-have products for beautiful beach waves.
This hairstyle is also super popular right now and it’s pretty easy to do. You just have to put your hair in a side ponytail and wrap you hair up in a bun. Pin it with bobby pins and you are set. You can play around with it and add braids or whatever you want. Be creative!
Headbands and Accessories
I’ve seen soooo many cute headbands and accessories lately. I want to just buy them all and wear them all the time. They are a great way to spruce up any other style.
Well now that you know the hottest trends for school this year, you are ready to go and conquer the school year. Good luck!
