PoPhaircuts.com have been working hard to gather the best hairstyles on the fashion scene into one handy post for you. What’s more – we’ll even tell you how to recreate the looks! So let’s begin.
#1. Gorgeous Grey Ombre Blend – Blunt, Straight Lob Hair Styles
To style this gorgeous grey ombre blend, start by chopping your hair in a sleek mid-length style. This falls roughly around shoulder length and is finished with blunt ends. Blend your hair from a dark grey to shiny silver using the ombre technique. Finish by keeping your hair straight and sleek to show off the colours at work!
#2. Silver Pixie Crop – Cute, Very Short Hair Cuts with Side Sweep Bangs
Copy this striking silver short haircut by creating a pixie cut and leaving a long sweeping fringe. Keep the bottom layer of the crop close to the head. Leave the top layer long with a deep side parting. Straighten the hair across the head for this stunning swept effect. Finish with a striking and shiny silver shade for a majestic and metallic style!
3.# Purple to Silver Bob with Sweeping Fringe – Shaved Short Haircut
Blending purple and cream together will give your hair the subtle pop of colour you’ve craved. Starting with a purple shade at the roots, gently blend to cream throughout the rest of the hair. Keep one side of your bob short and close to the head, and the other long. Leave the fringe section long for a sweeping effect to frame the face.
#4. Curly Messy Bob with Blonde Highlights – Balayage, Messy Shoulder Length Hairstyles
Messy bobs are oh so fashionable and recreating this look is simple. Start by opting for a crop which falls an inch or so above the shoulder. Use the balayage technique to blend the hair from brown to blond consequently creating a sun-kissed finish. Curl the hair from root to tip and drag your fingers through it for an amazing tousled effect.
#5. Copped Wedged Crop – Short Hairstyle Ideas for Women
We think you’ll agree that copper has never looked so good before! Start by choosing your fiery shade of red and dying your hair all over. Be brave and go for the chop, cutting all of your hair in line with your ear. Opt for a side parting to create a long sweeping fringe. Keep the layers at the back of the head short for the curved silhouette we can see in this lady’s look!
#6. Long, Highlighted Style with Loose Curls – Balayage Shoulder Length Haircut
This long hair is brought to life by the gorgeous golden highlights which are worked around the front of the face and throughout the hair. Keep your highlights scattered loosely to create a subtle yet effective end result. Loosely curl your long hair from around the ear length down, and the end result is this gorgeous beach ready style which we think is just stunning.
#7. Sweeping Brown Bob with Highlights – Balayage Hair Styles for Thick Hair
Classy and sassy are two words which definitely describe this look! Go for a bob which finishes around the jaw level to define your face. Keep the strands towards the front of the face longer, and flick them under. Add choppy layers throughout the top of the head for this bouncy finish and opt for highlights of your choice to add light and lift.
#8. Silver Asymmetrical Long Pixie Hair Cuts – Messy Short Hairstyle
Asymmetrical haircuts are both trendy and edgy, so why not go for it? Start by keeping one side of the head kept short and cropped closely to the head. Keep the other side longer at the front, creating a wonderful fringe. Cut the rest of the hair short with the layers getting gradually shorter at the top of the head. Tousle the top for an edgy finish!
#9. White Blonde Beach Waves – Balayage Long Hairstyle
Beach-styles waves are oh so fashionable now, and after one look at this stunning lady it’s not hard to see why! Keep your hair long to recreate this look. Choose your favourite bright shade of white blonde and work it all over your hair. Using straighteners, very loosely curl the locks from root to tip. Brush backwards for this swept back look and enjoy the compliments you’re bound to receive!
#10. Graduated Brown Bob with Silver Streaks – Balayage Shoulder Length Hairstyle for Thick Hair
We couldn’t not end this gallery on a graduated bob! Graduated bobs are longer at the front of the head, working towards shorter layers at the back. Recreate this stunning look by opting for brown as a base colour, and adding grey highlights throughout to lift the style. Loosely curl the ends for this bouncy finish and run your fingers through the curls to separate slightly.
Side-swept hairstyles for 2017
This is one of the most frequently featured hairstyles for 2017, as seen on the runway models from Wang, Chai, Zimmermann and Som plus lots more. However, each fashion brand has created a different look with a distinct shape and texture, reflecting the versatility of the side-swept hairstyle!

Braids ‘in the mix’ of best hairstyle
The popularity of braids will continue and judging by the imaginative new braid styles that delight us each new season, we can look forward to some fascinating new braiding techniques and styles!

There will be a resurgence of vintage braid styles – and there’s a centuries’ old tradition of braids to choose from! I expect to see messy 1960’s Brigitte Bardot side-plaits along with some sleek and elegant formal braids for evening wear.
Scarves, ribbons and old lace
The styles we’ve seen range from cute French braids on side-swept styles to punk/Goth romantic creations. Dolce & Gabbana and Givenchy models wore fantastic braids and braids intertwined with silk scarves, ribbons, rags and bits of old lace are finally being featured by the big fashion brands.
Top Tip: Try making a thin French head plait from forehead to crown instead of a parting for a totally unique take on the braided detail!
Best hairstyles – Wet-hair look
The combed back just-out-of-the-shower-look is being promoted as an ultra-modern hairstyle for 2017 by several top fashion brands, including Lanvin. However, I’ll be surprised if it actually emerges as a popular look. Just putting gel on your hair and combing it straight back from the forehead isn’t a flattering way to wear hair!

Last year, I only remember seeing it on a ‘red carpet’ celebrity once – and she was ridiculed by comments asking if she had just stepped out of the shower and not had time to style her hair!
The constantly evolving pony-tail
The pony-tail will keep its position as one of the best hairstyles for 2017, as it can be infinitely varied to suit every face shape and personal style!

For a stunning evening pony-tail, copy the extra-long bubble ponytail or take a leaf out of Victoria Beckham’s posh look-book and opt for a simple centre parting, with a straight pony-tail at the nape.
For a casual, grungy look there are messy ponies from ‘Rag & Bone’ and we loved the funky idea of creating different sections of texture and colour in a long pony-tail.

For instance, take a piece of fabric and fasten it to a section of hair by winding a piece of fine cord or string around them both. Then crimp another section, and twist some beads around a third section until you have a totally unique eclectic pony-tail!
