Budget-Friendly Hair Trends

Posted on 05/13/2011

Hair can require a lot of costly upkeep. Between monthly trims and color touch-ups, weekly conditioning treatments and daily care, maintaining that hot head of yours can take a major slice of funds. You’ll love these looks because they’ll help you stay on budget while also staying on trend.

Ombre Hair Color - One of the best low-maintenance, money-saving hair trends is Ombre. It’s a French word meaning “shaded.” The look is economical because it requires fewer trips to the salon for expensive color treatments. To understand the trend, think about your childhood hair—during the summer it would bleach naturally in the sun and by winter your hair would grow in darker at the roots. That’s Ombre! Skip root touch ups and you’ll be right on par with this hot hair trend.

Long Hair - Let it grow for 2011. You’ll still need to schedule a few trims, but for the most part, just let your locks get long. This summer you can pull it up in knots, braids and buns for a great low-cost, high-trend look.

DIY Fascinator Accessory - Thanks to the Royal Wedding, fascinators are a hot, hot trend. While these can cost quite a bit, there are easy ways to get crafty and create a DIY fascinator. Check out this guide from weddingbee.com. Or pick up a DIY fascinator kit from Pretty by Kitty on Etsy for just $20.

Shiny Finish - Glossy locks are in high demand for summer 2011. Experts say getting this look requires less product, which is good news for your budget. You can get glimmering hair with a simple shine spray. Ulta offers several different shine sprays and right now when you use coupon code 64450 you can save 20% off one item.
