Let’s face it; this past year has brought on some real hardships and changes that nobody could have predicted. And while there’s a sense of unity in knowing we are all in this together, it doesn’t take away from the fact that this pandemic has been scary, isolating, and stressful for everyone. We know with the rise in vaccinations that there is light at the end of the tunnel and one day we will return to a new norm where we can see our loved ones again, shop at our favourite stores, visit our local spa, and get back to those hobbies and sports we miss so much.
But in the meantime, during stressful times self-care is paramount to your mental health and well-being. We hope you take time to yourself each day and do something you love. Something that feels rejuvenating. Maybe that looks like reading a good book, meditating, working out, going for a walk, journaling, or enjoying an at-home pedicure. Whatever it is, pressing the reset button can make the world of a difference in how we feel.
If you’re one that has grown accustomed to getting their hair treated on a regular routine, you can probably agree that a trip to the hair salon definitely falls into the category of self-care. In fact, it’s amazing what a new-do can do for your confidence and overall mood!
Sadly with the effects of the pandemic, salon services have had to be put on the back burner…for now, anyway. That said, why not plan out that exciting new look now? There is a multitude of beautiful hair trends to consider, from bold colour to unique cuts and styles, why not explore a new look while we say goodbye to the old and hello to the new; spring is just around the corner… What better time to change it up!
If you could use some inspiration after months of no colour or cuts, we totally get it!
Here we’ll take a look at a few hot hairstyles trending now:
Curtain bangs are everywhere right now! Why the hype? Unlike traditional bangs, curtain bangs are slightly longer than a typical fringe, giving your face a softer appearance. The grow-out phase occurs much more seamlessly for a more natural look, allowing you to extend the time in between maintenance trims. Always a good thing! If you’ve always been drawn to a more of a retro vibe, this is the easiest way to achieve just that. Plus if that’s not enough, we can’t even begin to cover the number of celebrities who are hopping on the curtain bangs bandwagon. Take your hairstyle to the next level – your ponytail and messy bun will thank you for it!
Ahh, the classic bob. We love this look because essentially anyone can pull it off and it suits all hair types. Plus, it can be customized to achieve your desired look so whether it’s chin-length, shoulder-length, or somewhere in the middle, it allows for lots of creativity. If you want a bold bob that stands out, go for a chin-length sleek and straight look. On the other hand for a more messy laid back look, you may be more inclined to choose a texturized bouncy bob, complete with a deep sweep. Easily style the bob with some flirty waves if you’re looking to dress it up a notch! Whichever vibe you’re going after, we don’t predict the bob’s versatile cut will ever go out of fashion.
Shaggy Layers (or the Shag)
Shaggy hair is huge right now, and while this ‘70’s haircut is making a comeback, it has been completely modernized. And we are into it! This haircut is perfect for adding volume, depth, and texture. While you can take the plunge and chop it short, you can still rock the shag with longer locks. If your hair is on the longer side, go for more layers to get that feathered look.
For shorter hair, a blunt chop on the ends with layers everywhere else will instantly give you that edgy rock and roll feel. If you’re a low-maintenance kind of person and don’t have the time or patience to spend hours styling your hair, the modern shag might just be the right choice for you.
The Cavana Ridge team is eager to open our doors to you again. If you’re itching to give one of these cuts a go, we can’t wait to make that happen for you! For now, hang tight, visualize your hair goals and before you know it you’ll be relaxing in our salon, enjoying a luxurious hair experience.
We are excited to give you and your hair that much-needed attention it so very much deserves. Our team hopes to see you soon!
