If you’re looking for a hot new hairstyle with which you can ring in the new year, we’ve got a few that might be of interest to you.
A ‘bob’ haircut with bangs is very reminiscent of Catherine Zeta Jones in “Chicago”. A bob is traditionally a cut that is about chin length along the sides and cut a little shorter in the back in order to add a little bounce. You can go with really short bangs, very much like Betty Paige or leave them longer to resemble Diane Keaton’s hair in Manhattan. If your hair has a natural tendency for curls, bobs aren’t a good idea as your hair will take on a triangular shape.
Long straight hair with a side part is also a great look for the New Year and the new you. This particular style looks best if your hair is shoulder length or longer and straight. The bangs are cut on an angle allowing a deep side part. You should consider Ann Margaret during the height of her popularity and style. Paris Hilton is another celebrity that wears this style well.
You could also opt for an asymmetrical 80’s style cut with one side shorter than the other. This was all the rage in the height of its day and seems to be making a comeback of sorts. Precisions cuts such as this work best with hair that is a solid color.
Another great hairstyle to start the coming year off right is the zig zag part. This particular hairstyle is particularly flattering to women who have low foreheads. While this look seemed to be at its height of fashion a couple of years back, it is still quite popular and can be spotted on celebrities such as Heather Locklear.
The Pixie cut is one that seems to continue making the rounds in and out of fashion news. For 2007 it seems this cut will definitely be in. First made popular in Rosemary’s Baby when worn by Mia Farrow, this cut has remained somewhat popular ever since. While it experiences times where it is more popular than others. It has become a recent hit, as it is a popular hairstyle worn by contestants on a popular model search show called “America’s Next Top Model”.
When it comes to color, there are many shades from which to choose and platinum seems to be a favorite among celebrities. Of course, this is an extremely difficult color to maintain for any length of time and is very hard on your hair as a result.
Another popular trend among certain crowds are the rather ostentatious purples and burgundy red colors of the early 90’s. The color of a glass of red wine is a good indication of this particular color.
If you have dyed your hair black you should consider the fact that the bluish shades of black are not quite the height of fashion they once may have been and softening those tones with gold or red highlights adds warmth which is a popular trend for the upcoming year.
