European women are known for their sophisticated style, and this is the same when it comes to their hair. OROGOLD takes a look at some of the latest European hair trends.
Loose, Messy Updo
A loose, messy updo is one of the most popular of European hair trends, and looks sexy and stylish for both day and night. It is an easy one to do, although OROGOLD recommends that you wait for a couple of days after washing your hair before attempting it. Begin by backcombing your hair with a teaser comb in large sections, before creating volume at the top and smoothing your hair into a ponytail. Then, take and curl different sized sections before twisting them and pinning them up, working your way from the bottom to the top of your hair. Once done, use your hands to twist the curls into any pattern that you like, before giving your hair a spritz with a finishing spray.
The Bob Cut
This is a famous, classic style that is always making some sort of comeback in different forms. With a bob cut, you can never really go wrong, and just because you have short hair, this doesn’t mean that you still can’t experiment with new styles. A tousled, textured bob always looks great, as does a bob that is sleek, straight and Cleopatra-inspired. Bangs also work well with a bob, whether they are straight and blunt, long and layered or swept to the side. To take this even further, OROGOLD suggests looking at pixie styles, as this a cute style that will usually make any face look more youthful.
The Half Twist
This hair trend looks extremely modern, but also a little eccentric, and is perfect for those of you who want to try something new. To create this look, take two large sections from either side of your hair and criss-cross them over the back, so that one is overlapping the other. Pin this into place with bobby pins, before pulling out a large section of hair to overlap the layers you have already created. Finish the look off with a strong finishing spray.
A Braided Bun
A braided bun works best with long hair, although those with medium length hair may also have success with this. To create this bohemian-inspired look, begin by braiding your hair into any sort of braid that you like. Wrap this braid around, pulling it into a bun and securing with a hair tie. Using your hands, gently move around pieces of the braid, pinning them up with hair pins, creating a slightly messier look. To make this style a bit softer, OROGOLD recommends loosening some of the strands near the front so that they are able to frame your face. This style always looks great with hair accessories, especially flowers, as they only enhance the bohemian feel.
A hot spot for fashion and style, there is no better place to look than Europe when you want to discover some new hair trends. Take the time to try each one out and adapt them to suit your own style, incorporating hair accessories for an even more dynamic look.
