A Hair Trend For Every Letter Of The Alphabet

Did you know? There is a hair trend for every English alphabet. From dyeing your hair to working an ombre and basic braids to braided updos, these 26 hair trends will make you go wow. Don’t believe us? Read on and find it out yourself:

1. A-Accessorize

Up the beauty quotient of your hair by accessorizing them with either cute hairbands or fancy hair clips. To cover up for a bad hair day, you can also wrap a colourful bandana around your hair and you’ll be left with a chic look worth flaunting. If you don’t possess fancy hair accessories, get creative with something as basic as bobby pins. Take 3 bobby pins and pin your hair in a triangular shape that’ll easily pass off as a quirky hairpin. You can also take 4 bobby pins to make a hashtag sign in your hair. Try it out!


2. B-Balayage

This hair colouring technique has been in since a long time but has picked up of late and has been trending both on and off the runway. Balayage is applying colour onto your hair directly from the board. Balayage gives your hair a very natural looking colour with softer, less noticeable regrowth lines. It is applied on the surface and not saturated through the section until the very tips, otherwise you’d have a streak of colour that isn’t very soft. This is a freehand technique because no foil is used to create the highlights.



3. C-Crimped Hair

Crimped hair was a very popular trend in the mid-80s and has made a comeback this year. Hair crimping means styling long, straight hair so that it becomes wavy. You can achieve crimped hair either by using a crimping iron or by braiding your hair in multiple strands.
