So 2016 is over, and it's time to look ahead and plan how we're going to make 2017 a year to remember (in a good way). What better place to start than with your hair? Here are four resolutions that will see you start the new year looking - and feeling - fantastic.
1. Regular cuts
If you don't know your hair stylist's first name, it's a sign you don't see each other enough. Getting regular trims every few months keeps your hair in good condition: removing split ends and promoting hair growth.
2. Weekly treatments
While applying a conditioning mask every day might be too much effort, and leave you hair greasy and weighed down, a weekly treatment can be just what the (hair) doctor ordered to rejuvenate tired locks and bring some shine to your new year. Try applying an overnight mask, like the Mythic Oil Masque by L'Oréal Professionnel, as part of a Sunday night pamper session (any excuse is a good one, right?), and start the week with glossy, healthy-looking hair.
3. Show a little kindness
If tight, high ponytails or complicated buns and braids were your go-to styles in 2016, listen up. 2017 looks set to be the year of natural beauty, so give your hair a break, put down those pins and heat styling tools, and be inspired by some of the fresh, floaty hairstyles spotted on the S/S 2017 catwalks. Think natural waves, ethereal curls and low, loose ponytails.
4. Be experimental
Work that imagination in 2017 and get creative with your look. From pastel highlights to beautiful floral crowns, spring is the season to see your imagination blossom with new colors and accessories. If you're feeling particularly bold, why not try a completely different style, and start 2017 with a bang (and bangs)!
