Operation Transformation being the buzz word at the moment, why not apply some dramatic changes to your hair style as well as your body! Now is the time for change so take inspiration from these celebrities for your new look…

The Pixie

Jennifer Lawrence - Pixie cut

The pixie is a timeless option for short hair. Many celebs have opted for this look, most recently Jennifer Lawrence. A traditional pixie will be short all over, but for this year try to spice things up with a more choppy look.. By combining a warm dark tone underneath with a blonder look on top, this accentuates the choppy fringe and defines the texture of the cut, a great look for 2014.

The Shag

Alexa Chung - The ShagAlexa Chung - 'The Shag' hairstyle

Do not be alarmed by the name of this hairstyle, it’s no more than a layered, messy bob. The modern version of the shag is best personified in the messy and stylish locks as sported by Alexa Chung. Best way to perfect the shag hairstyle is by applying plenty of wave inducing products, such as a sea salt based product. Solid colours are really making a comeback in 2014 so a rich chocolate shade would really suit this style. However if you would like to jazz it up a bit more, just add some chestnut tones throughout.

Pompadour or Quiff Hairstyles

Miley Cirus 2Miley Cirus 1

While this hairstyle is nothing more than a short look with a quiff as sported by the likes of Miley Cyrus, this is a strong look for a strong lady! Very much in trend this winter season, it can go as far as having shaved sides or a mohawk top. This style looks amazing on white blonde hair but if you want a bit of fun you can apply colour pigment sticks which come in a variety of colours and you can paint on your own highlights! Available in Salon 2.

The Demi Bob

Keira Knightley - Demi Bob

The demi bob as worn by Keira Knightley  is the biggest trend for medium hair and Vogue has declared it to be the hottest trend for 2014. Asymmetric, short, side swept and even curled, the demi bob is the perfect compromise for those who can’t do away with their locks, yet still fancy a change from the long hair. Balayage / Ombre colour can really enhance this look as the layers are left quite long and fine slices of colour on the mid lengths and ends or a solid lighter colour will add more definition to this style.

And of course, not forgetting the men and their new looks for 2014…
