Women Summer Hairstyle Trends 2014
As a season marked by fashion revivals, it's no surprise that some of the hottest hair trends for the summer of 2014 happen to be updated versions of classic styles. Much of this is driven by celebrities who sometimes take inspiration from the fashion trends of yesteryear. As such, here are some of the most popular cuts and hair colors for the hottest months of the year.
2014 Women Hairstyle Trends
Long hair is always popular, but this year the way it is styled will take precedence over the way it is cut. For example, first appearing on various fashion runways this spring, the summer beehive is back in vogue, albeit a bit more relaxed than its predecessor. Jennifer Lopez was one of the first celebrities to sport the updated beehive this year.
Another new trend for long hair this summer is the braided topknot. Combining two popular hair trends of the past three years, the braided topknot recently appeared on the Sass and Bide spring runway to compliment their summer tribal fashion line. While some styles combine multiple braids, the basic hairstyle consists of a single French braid running up the back of the hair, finished off with a messy topknot. Many celebrities have sported variations of this hairstyle recently.
For a more casual long hair look, the double hair knot is a soft, summery look that is perfect for almost any facial shape. The look is essentially an undone braid sitting at the nape of the neck, and incorporates elements of texture and contour to maintain a fresh look.
2014 Women Medium hairstyle Trends
Medium hair has been dominated by long bobs, but summer 2013 styles will feature a twist on the outgrown bob - literally. Loose waves that just graze the shoulders will add a feminine sophistication to your hairstyle. Bobs with loose waves and enhanced volume can be done in both fully stylized as well as more relaxed varieties, offering something for just about every woman.
Extremely short hair will be another trend in 2014 , with the pixie crop emerging as the favored short hairstyle. Celebrities like Emma Watson and Carey Mulligan have sported this look in the past, but unlike 2013's pixie cut, which was long in the front and short in the back, this style is daringly short all over.
Full, bold bangs will also be in vogue this year. One popular variation involves pairing this style with a sleek bob, and all lengths and styles of hair have seen the reemergence of the fringe. Long and oval face shapes are best suited for these bangs.
2014 Women Color Hairstyle
Colors can be as extreme as the summer temperatures, and two of the most popular shades at the moment are vibrant red and pale blond colors. The rarity of these colors adds to their appeal, and in general the best shades should be bold without appearing unnatural. Both of these colors look especially great on women with fair complexions.
