The latest avant garde styles for 2017 have a unique approach to colour and movement. These European looks have been designed by award winning hair stylists. These are the Oscars of avant garde hair styles.
Check out these pictures for inspiration that work well for the groom.
My advice is to keep the hair with a little bit of length.
The reason for this is that it will photograph better than short hair. Be comfortable and look like yourself. Either way just make sure everything is clean and groomed.
Plenty of male celebrity choose the messy look for the red carpet so it’s a proven formal hairstyle.
Slick hair is one of the most common formal hairstyles. It is preferable to use a matte product that won’t show up shiny in wedding photos. If this look is new to you get the right haircut and product to practice with a few week before the wedding or have a barber or stylist do it for you on the big day.
It’s no doubt that along with the new year we can expect to see a wide array of new and popular hair colours and styles. From the wild styles that celebrities rock on the red carpet, to the most subtle effects you can wear to work, you can find a new look perfect for you.
Whether it’s eclipting, balayage, or ecaille, 2017 has some cool colours in store.
Eclipting - Think of eclipting as countering for your hair. With this technique, the hair around your face is coloured darker than the rest, which ultimately makes your cheeks look slimmer. In order for this technique to work, you need an experienced stylist. When done correctly, this technique can dramatically change the appearance of your face.
Tiger Eye Bronde – One of the hottest colours for 2017 will be Tigereye a blonde colour that incorporates honey, amber and soft brown highlights, painted on with the balayage technique. The popular hair colour started flooding Instagram in late 2016 and can be seen on celebrities like Jessica Alba and Jennifer Lopez. What’s great about this warm caramel colour for brunettes? It grows out seamlessly so you don’t have to worry about roots.
Pastel - Pastel hair colours, like a peach, lavender, baby blonde and soft rainbow colours continue to be popular for those looking to fit outside the box. These colours give you a soft, cute look with just a hint of whimsy. They’re also extremely versatile. For instance, pastels can be combined with complementary highlights to create a wide range of stunning looks. Brunettes who don’t want to bleach their hair first should look to another popular hair colour, chocolate mauve which incorporates lavender highlights into a chocolate base.
Jewel tones - As popular as light colours are shaping up to be, dark colours are making their way into the spotlight too. A dark midnight blue or dark teal gives off a cool bad girl vibe. Dark colours also look flattering on most skin tones, so anyone can rock this look.
We all know slathering on sunscreen before a beach run is a no-brainer – but what about sun protection for your hair? If you’re not wearing a hat, then yep, your strands need UV protection says Sydney trichologist David Salinger.”UV light does two bad things. It breaks some of the bonds in the hair which can weaken it, and lead to breakage. Secondly it oxidises the pigment in the hair making it lighter in colour”.
Start your damage control now by using UV technology haircare, these products work by absorbing the UV rays and preventing them from penetrating your precious strands.
As the weather warms up, our hair becomes more vulnerable to the sun’s harmful rays. It’s all about maintaining strong follicles from the inside out, with a good shampoo and conditioner and also I suggest using a treatment two to three times a week for extra hydration to maintain healthy hair. Use the treatment after shampooing, there’s no need to condition as well, and blondes, listen up – your crowning glory needs even more shielding in the hotter months as honey shades become brassy as the colour fades. I recommend a hair toner, products specifically for coloured hair like violet based shampoo and conditioner which enhances lightened hair and stops yellowness. You can get a toner treatment in the salon which lasts up to 24 washes.

There’s something undeniably attractive about the distinguished look of a man with silvery locks. Grey hair was once linked to growing old, now it’s a sign of sophistication, maturity and confidence. Sure, the appearance of greying can indicate that you’re moving on in life, but more importantly it’s a sign of one’s wiseness and tenacity, it shows that you’ve been around to weather the worst and you’re now at the top of your game. Your next step? Owning it. Here are some ways to rock grey hairstyles.
1. Hair masks need heat. Apply one and leave it on in the bath. If you have really damaged hair, the longer you leave it on the better. Wrap cling wrap around it and sit in the sun – the heat helps activate it. Check the the treatment story – Top 4 Treatments
2. Go easy on the straighteners. People make the mistake rough drying their hair and then pull the straighteners through. The secret is to blow dry your hair (even if you’re curling it) as well as you possibly can first. Then pop your straightener on it. They’re there to aid you – not to be relied on.
3. Use a shine serum. The secret is to rub it into your hands, like hand cream, and almost get rid of it – then apply. Less is always more, you can always go back and reapply, but too much will appear greasy.
4. Special occasion? You need to cut it three weeks before the event and colour it two weeks before. Allow time to tweak or fix if necessary!
5. Colouring – A general guide. The lighter your complexion, the lighter your hair colour should be. The more olive your complexion, the darker your hair colour should be. The more ash your complexion, the more warmth your hair colour needs. The more warmth in your complexion, the more ash your hair needs to be.
6. When should you use your frizz fighting products? Always on damp hair, before blow drying. The ingredients absorb far better into the wet strands than when they are applied on dry hair.
7. Always use a wide-tooth comb on wet hair. If you cheat and use a fine-tooth comb or a brush, it can stretch, and even snap the hair strand.
8. The golden rule is, less is more. Never overload your hair with product, as it will only weigh down strands.
