Braids, buns and bangs: Pin­ter­est re­veals hair­styles trend­ing around the world

The Borneo Post - Nature and health - - Style & Gr -

DOES the coun­try you live in in­flu­ence the hair­style you opt for when you get up in the morn­ing? Ac­cord­ing to Pin­ter­est, quite pos­si­bly. The so­cial me­dia plat­form has re­leased its ‘Global Beauty Re­port 2018’, us­ing its 207 mil­lion ‘beauty boards’ to an­a­lyse the var­i­ous in­ter­na­tional trends shap­ing the beauty scene this year. Ac­cord­ing to the re­sults, braids are trend­ing in a big way in the US this year, with the trend up by an im­pres­sive 445 per cent on the site.

Given the num­ber of celebri­ties that have been seen rock­ing the di­verse style lately, from Kim Kar­dashian to Madonna and Lady Gaga, to vary­ing de­grees of con­tro­versy, that may come as no sur­prise. Twisted braids, a de­riv­a­tive of the braid trend, are also prov­ing pop­u­lar in South Africa at the mo­ment, where ‘pins’ are up by 70 per cent, while box braids are up by 97 per cent in Brazil.

Mean­while, buns are all the rage in France and the UK, with searches for ‘messy buns’ up by 137 per cent among French users, which makes sense, since loose chignons have also been en­joy­ing ma­jor vis­i­bil­ity on the red car­pet re­cently, with ev­ery­one from Hai­ley Bald­win to Meghan Markle prov­ing to be a fan.

In Bri­tain, pin­ners have been more fo­cused on the side bun, with searches up by 164 per cent.

How­ever, sim­pler styles are still in fash­ion -- for ex­am­ple, searches for cas­cad­ing waves, or ‘On­das al agua’ have in­creased by 133 per cent in Spain, while open bangs are up by 150 per cent in Ar­gentina. In Ger­many, it’s all about the no-non­sense pixie cut, with searches up 266 per cent on last year. – Re­laxnews
