Hair is one of the first things people notice, and it often says something about the individual’s personality. Whether you like to be the centre of attention or merge into the crowd, your hairstyle can sometimes reveal all.
In modern society there is a lot of focus placed on image and there are many wonderful and wacky hairstyles created on a daily basis for catwalks, magazines and competitions.
Here at the Wimpole Clinic we thought we often talk about hair loss, but for once we’d like to talk about some amazing hair styles. Here are 5 amazing, and perhaps a little unusual, hairstyles that are sure to turn a few heads!
The afro, sometimes referred to simply as a ‘fro’ is worn naturally by people with a kinky hair texture. They then comb the hair away from the scalp creating a large round shape like a ball. Naturally straight hair can also be chemically formed into afro hair with gels, creams and hair spray.
This style is particularly popular with African-American people as the term ‘afro’ is rooted in ‘African-American’. Controlled with an afro-pick (specialist comb) this hairstyle definitely draws attention; the longer the hair – the more heads turn! Don’t forget with this sort of hairstyle you need to condition with shampoo and conditioner.
2. Patterns Shaved Into Hair
A modern craze see’s different types of shaving of the hair. One popular range, particularly with women, is to shave a small part of the hair on one side around the ear and leave the rest long. With such a stark difference between the long and shaved sections of hair, this look certainly catches people’s eye.
Another shaved style, this time largely more popular among the men and boys, is to have a design shaved into your hair. The designs range from a name to a picture or even an animal print. This favourite certainly makes it easier to style your hair in the morning!
3. Animal Hair
This style can really only be described as a hair sculpture. The hair is molded, shaped and cut so it appears that an animal sits atop the person’s head. Professionals can only achieve this style; therefore it is incredibly unique, unusual and will draw a lot of people’s attention.
4. Bright Colours
A favourite since the 80’s, dying hair a variety of bright and beautiful colours remain an amazing hairstyle today. This exciting style is attractive and interesting; the boy band, Mcfly, even wrote a number 1 hit song about a girl with ‘5 Colours in Her Hair’.
The most popular colours are blue and pink but you don’t necessarily have to dye your hair. Many people use coloured extensions to protect their hair and give them the flexibility to change whenever they want. This is ideal to prevent future hair loss, as dyes can damage hair.
5. Bow (Lady Gaga Style)
A look inspired by the famous pop star Lady Gaga, the bow is created using your hair and sits securely on top of your head like a hair accessory would. As it is created out of your own hair, the style looks completely different on every person and secures a second glance from the public.
