5 Trending Hairstyles in Wellington


A well-chosen hairstyle can radically enhance your appearance by highlighting your most attractive facial features. If you have been procrastinating, now is the best time for a change. Gain inspiration from these 5 hairstyles that are popular in Wellington at the moment:

1. Retro waves

The retro/vintage waves that were incredibly popular back in 1930s are making a comeback in Wellington. Why? Because they are timeless, shiny and very easy to create. All you need are a few hot rollers, a 1.5-inch curling iron and a gentle brush. Before trying this look, ensure you book regular hair cuts to remove split ends and promote the health of your hair.

2. Heavy side-swept fringe

A fringe is a clever way to gain extra volume in your hair and also draws attention to your cheekbones. To achieve a heavy side-swept fringe, seek out a professional hair salon in Wellington. Ask for a shoulder-length cut with a heavy fringe that you intend to wear swept to the side. Remember to specify which side you will wear your fringe on so it can be cut to your preferred side.

3. Cornrows

Cornrows used to be extremely popular back in the 1990ss, then they faded for a few years. Only now are they making an exciting comeback! You do not need to be an alternative musician to pull this hairstyle off. This is one of the chicest and easiest hairstyles you can request and it works perfectly for medium and longer hair lengths.

4. Faux undercut

Another very popular hairstyle in Wellington at the moment is the faux undercut. Rihanna and Pink are two celebrities to make the faux undercut so sought-after today. If you are feeling bold and daring this year, then you should definitely give it a try. Remember you can do a lot with the upper part of the cut – turning it into cornrows or braiding it.

5. Retro bob with back combing

This is a very fresh-looking and feminine hairstyle that is perfect for women with short hair. Also referred to as the ‘short Japanese haircut’ this retro bob with back combing is basically an asymmetrical bob that forms a very attractive contrast when blow-dried with a round brush.
