Trend Diva

Music star Monica is ready to take hair trends to a whole new level! We spotted the star on the set of her music video “It All Belongs To Me” wearing not one but three hot hair trend ideas that we just had to spotlight. Pick one or try all three of these Monica-inspired mane moves:

TREND: MERMAID WAVES—Beachy, loose waves are a must-have this summer and Monica’s take on the trend free-flowing and pretty! Get a similar look by keeping the crown sleek and use a large, clipless curling iron to shape vertical ringlets starting at cheekbone level. Allow curls to cool then use a wide-tooth comb to blend the texture.

TREND: OMBRE HAIRCOLOR—Gradually shifting her hair shade from dark chocolate (at the crown) to warm honey (along the tips) gives Monica’s lengthy mane dimension and visual movement. Enlist your colorist’s help to pick the hues best for you.

TREND: HAIR JEWELRY—This ain’t your momma’s headband! Delicate gold chains with a tiny medallion accents Monica’s coif beautifully. For the most impact, keep this look for special occasions (think prom, weddings or for when you’re ready for your red-carpet moment)!
