New Year, new hair! 2016 is behind us and it was a good hair year with so many fun styles, colors, and cuts. I have a feeling that 2017 will be no different. I am excited to see all the different hair trends that will make their debut and even some hairstyles from the past that are sticking around and making a comeback in 2017. 

Crochet goddess locs

Crochet goddess locs started growing in popularity 2016 and I see them getting even bigger in 2017. This protective style is super easy and gorgeous on anyone that rocks it. Consider getting this style to see how they will look before deciding to loc your own hair.

Hair jewelry for braids, locs, and twists

Hair jewelry is making its way into many protective styles as a way to decorate your hair and add flair to your outfit. Get ready to add hair jewelry into your hair styling toolbox in 2017.

Clip-in extensions

Clip-in extensions are here to stay. They are very easy to install and take no time at all. I love seeing the creative ways that clip-ins are being styled, from being curled to straightened and even colored. So if you are looking to make a change for the new year but want it to be low commitment, give temporary clip-ins a try.


From top knot, high buns, low buns, and messy buns, they are here for the long run. I don’t see buns going anywhere anytime soon. It’s a super easy style that will always be on trend. Buns are a very popular protective style that’s super easy and takes no time to create.


Updos are growing in popularity for wedding season, and we're so excited to see more and more women embracing their natural texture on their wedding day. They're also perfect in the summertime when it’s hot and you want to get that hair off of your neck.

Tapered haircuts and undercuts

It's been all about long hair for so long, that I'm excited to see many naturalistas taking the plunge and cutting their curls into tapered fros. I have a feeling that 2017 is the year of short haircuts. If you are looking for curly haircut inspiration, we have got you covered. We're also loving the tapered haircut wedding day styles we've been seeing.

Goddess braids

Goddess braids were a hot commodity in 2016 and always gain attention anywhere they are found. Goddess braids are a protective style that can last you up to a few months with proper care. They can be created in many different designs and are perfect year-round.

Eye-catching color

From purple to green, bold colors have been on my radar. This year will be all about color that pops. Get ready for spring and give your hair a new look by switching up and adding some color to your curls!
