You might be thinking that this post belongs to a beauty blog, but from time to time I feature beauty and hair posts because moms are still women, and I strongly believe that some great lipstick, concealer and hairdo can make you feel as if you have had eight hours of sleep, or haven’t been whined at/cried on/used as a dairy/spat on etc.
Shelene Shaer of Tanaz Hair Body and Nails (branches in Joburg and Cape Town) has shared some of the hot hair trends for the year for if you’re looking for a change, or just wanting to know what’s “in”.
Plaits and braids
Braids are versatile and can be used in so many ways they add a bit of interest to a style. Short or long hair can accommodate braids.
Long hair is here to stay, it’s pretty and versatile, whether you are styling your long hair into beachy waves, sophisticated up do’s or simply going poker straight ensure your long hair is kept at it’s best with regular trims.
The low ponytail
Forever classic the ponytail remains a steadfast form in hairstyling. A slight variation on the theme for this season sees a simple sleek long ponytail made striking with accessories to bring out the best in this low maintenance look. If your hair doesn’t have the length, you could try hair extensions.
