Great Hair Don’t Care: Blowout & Updo Trends

Just like clothes and music, hair trends come and go in cycles. We’re kinda happy those big perms from the 80’s haven’t quite come back around, but we are seeing some trends that look a little familiar—with modern updates, of course!

So what should you ask for next time at Ella Bliss. Well, we have a few ideas…


Beautiful Blowouts

Loose, beachy waves have dominated blowout trends for the last couple of years, and we don’t see that going away anytime soon. Maybe because it works for just about every hair length and looks great on, well, EVERYBODY (hey, that includes you!).

While tousled waves are here to stay, we’re also loving the bouncy, shiny blowout look that’s taking the streets by storm. It’s a popular look among celebrities and models, and it’s easy to see why. A good round brush and the right products create loads of volume and natural-looking waves that can last for days. The result is a gorgeous, glamorous look perfect for any occasion, from the office to date night.


Uh-Mazing Updos

Updos aren’t just for special occasions anymore, especially with Ella Bliss nearby! An updo is a fun way to break up your everyday hair routine. Classic updos are getting a modern update with styles that look effortless and unfussy. We’re seeing two big trends right now—the chic and sleek and the tousled and toned down.

Chic and sleek takes your hair straight back in a beautiful look that put all the focus on your beautiful face. It’s a favorite on the red carpet, but this style works for no matter where you’re headed.

On the flip side, loose and even slightly messy updos have a great I-just-threw-this-together feel while still looking flawless. Loose crowns, messy backs and face-framing fringe are the hallmarks of this popular style.

The braided updo trend isn’t going anywhere either, and we’re thrilled! Braids add a beautiful element of design and texture to an updo, and there are endless ways to work braids into your style. From a slender single braid to an elaborate braid crown, our stylists love a good plait.
