Half-up styles and daring colour combos

The half-up half-down look is one of the best long hairstyles for 2017 because it is all-new and ready to dazzle with newstyling twists and daring colour combinations! Ombré half-ups look great because of the patterns they make, now imagine what you can create with a dual-ombréhalf-upstyle!

The dual-ombré combines three bands of colour which can be the subtle sombré graduation or just three harmonising or contrasting colours!

Basket-woven sections

Basket-weaving in the top section of half-up styles looks absolutely fabulous on highlighted hair or hair of an all-over colour. We love the latticed, basket-weave look for top layers on elegant upstyles and trendy half-ups and will be promoting it like mad as one of the best long hairstyles for 2017! It’s a really chic and unique look!

Under-layer highlighting on buns and hair-knots

And the classic French Twist is also featured amongst the top five best long hairstyles for 2017, for its cool, understated glamour and with some very attractive, contemporary touches.

One of the new ways of highlighting long hair is to add the colour in the underneath layers from root to tip, so it creates a lovely now-you-see-it – now-you-don’t colour scheme. Then when you put your hair up into a hair-knot, bun or French Roll chignon, you create a fabulous, new colour pattern!

Best long hairstyles for 2017– classy warm colours

Most of the fashion houses we’ve seen used models with light brown or brunette hair and there were no particular colour surprises. That’s good because the continuing trend for warm russet-reds and caramel shades is a very flattering look that suits most women and deserves a ‘long-run’!

I do hear that golden-blonde is going to be huge for spring 2017, according to my contact at L’Oreal! And this seems to confirm that the ash-blonde shades that keep cropping up in the AW fashion events, are still not catching the eye of the celebs (and their hair stylists) we love to copy!

Retro-updo’s

I believe that one of the most popular new upstyles for long hair will be the retro-1960’s look created with barrel-roll curls lightly back-combed and then pinned in place around the crown.

It’s a super-cool and chic look, that stays in place well and suits all ages, too. And as the latest fringes are forward-combed and straight-across – that completes the authentic‘60’s style to a ‘T’!
