5 hair trends that’ll make heads turn this summer

No more 'bad hair days'

By Mamta Mody  March 15th, 2017

The new season brings with a host of vibrant trends that we are itching to test-drive. From super slick tresses to barette adorned hair circa ’80s, we bring you all the hair inspo fresh off the runway. The good news? The eclectic mood of summer lets your personality shine; here’s how to work what your mama gave you.

Super sleek

Heat up your flat iron if you’re bored of mermaid waves. Commit to pin-straight, shiny hair as seen at Versace, Victoria Beckham and JJ Valaya—strays are discouraged. Just make sure your hair looks healthy (throw on some heat protectant and shine serum to keep it from frying).

TIGI Bed Head Straighten Out, Rs 850
Clarins UV Plus BB Cream, Rs 2,750
MAC Studio Eye Gloss in Médoc, Rs 1,650
Revlon Photoready Skinlights, Rs 995
Dior Addict Fluid Shadow in Eclipse, rs 4,700

Wet, wet, wet

Gleaming touches of gloss on the eyelids, cheekbones, lips (and even wet hair) have made the high-shine look part of 2017’s beauty zeitgeist. Dip into bottles of hair gel, pop-coloured eye cream and dewy foundation for an other-worldly shine. We’re taking cues from models at Balmain, HUEMN and Sanchita.

'80s redux

Rekha (circa 1980) would co-sign on the crimped hair at AM.IT by Amit Aggarwal and Topshop Unique, but she would have truly endorsed the barrette adorned hair at Louis Vuitton and the Whitney Houston curls at Rohit Gandhi + Rahul Khanna. Own these badass hairstyles with lots of hairspray, disciplined curls, gravity-defying height and maybe a picture on Instagram.

Bblunt Gel OH Natural Hold Gel, rs 450
Kérastase Discipline Curl Ideal Creme, rs 2,400

One-sided affair

Whether it was tousled, wet or gently tonged, a deep side-part was essential to every hairstyle across shows. For the taking this season, we have mannish side-parts (like Rajesh Pratap Singh), strands swept across the forehead (like Givenchy) or a casual, messy do (like Dries Van Noten).

L’Oréal Paris 6 Oil Nourish Oil-in-Cream, rs 80
