Hair Trends of 2011


Hair 4Happy New Year Muses! Sorry I've been away for so long, but it has been very busy here. I recently moved all the way from Florida to Arizona! I know, right. We are still getting settled -- i.e., I have no furniture and just regained internet connection -- so I will try to post as often as I can until things go back to normal.

The best part about being in Arizona, aside from having mountains in the background, is being able to drive to Las Vegas and California in a matter of a few hours. If any of you muses live in Arizona we should have a meet up!

Now that the new year is here, it's about time I focus on some of the trends of 2011. The hair trends seen on runways have really caught my eye. Here are just a few of these new dos:

(including this pixie cut that Emma wears; you can see it in my inspiring style post about her)

Little RedRavishing red hair is a color trend for 2011! This is great for those redheads who never felt wanted in the fashion world. 2011 will be your year to shine bright red!

The double knot hair trend is one that I find super appealing. It makes it really easy to not do your hair and yet still pull off a trend.

This is an effortless look that has the two knots falling at the nape of the neck.

All you need is a little spritz and scrunch to attain this great look in 2011.

The bird nest look has been on the runways since last year, but it is starting to really make an impact off the runway as well.

It has a bit of a playful elegance that gives ode to the powderpuff look of the past.

All you need is some mousse, a high ponytail and lots of bobby pins.

Other Trends
braided top knot
waved bob
fringe bangs
pixie cut
platinum blonde
