It’s time for some style predictions for 2017 at Style Note Towers; though trend forecasts are notoriously difficult in the digital age, we think it will be the year of the texturized lob.  Case in point, Jennifer Lawrence.  A once-upon-a-time newcomer to fame, and a hair chameleon, Lawrence stepped onto the fashion map with golden strands and a sweet look.  Now her locks have taken a turn to more of an edgy side, completing a high-fashion look. She has gone dark, short, blunt and bobbed, but our favorite look would most noticeably be her texturized lob (seen above) that she recently stepped out in.  With just the right amount of edginess and flare, it’s a killer style on the forefront of 2017.  See below for Style Notes. –– Brittany Taylor

Hair Cut & Color: Ask your stylist for a collarbone-grazing length with lots and lots of internal texture and separation. A razor cut will be best, as the straightedge blade naturally creates more texture and taper than a shear.

Styling Step: Pump a handful of volume foam into hands and massage into roots and hair shaft.  Follow with curl enhancer and spread evenly through hair.  Comb through for even distribution.

Styling Step: For wavy or curly hair, use a diffuser and make scrunching motions with hands to enhance natural texture.  For straighter hair, mist set & style spray onto locks and twist and tousle and scrunch hair with hands as you blow-dry, for a natural-looking cascading texture. If you need more curl, wrap small sections of hair around curling wand in alternate directions till you get the oomph you want.

Styling Step: Spray wave mist throughout hair and continue to twist and tousle into your favorite perfectly imperfect shape.
