Summer 2017 Hair Trends + Summer Hair Protection & Repair

Get ready for summer hair trends from the Milan, Paris, and New York Fashion Week runways! What hairstyles and colors will you see this year? We've done the research for you. What will YOU choose? Speaking of summer, be sure to protect your hair from damaging sun rays, chlorine, and saltwater. Remember … great hair doesn’t happen by chance. It happens by appointment: 678-361-4247

Hair Cuts & Styles:

'80s beauty signatures are staging a serious comeback in 2017 – clothing fashion, hair, and makeup. From crimps at Marc Jacobs’ Resort show, to spiral perms at Topshop Unique, styles once labeled glaring mistakes suddenly feel fresh and modern. 

Short shags with choppy bangs give an effortless look and are showing up on a lot of platinum blondes. Ask for a razored, sliced, free-handed haircut for texture that brings the ‘80s shag edgy and current.

The high, side ponytail made a return to the catwalk for 2017. Wrap a band of hair around the base to add some fancy. To get the look, spray thickening hair at the roots and brush up toward the top back of your crown. Secure the pony with two elastics, one on top of the other, to create volume. Flat iron the ponytail and finish with hairspray. 

Sleek, straight hair will always be in fashion, and long hair with blunt-cut ends is seen everywhere, on the runways and off. How do you achieve hair this smooth and luminous? With the best keratin treatment around – GKhair Hair-Smoothing Keratin Treatments (formerly Global Keratin). Salon 1580 specializes in these treatments and has been named a “Top 20 GKhair Atlanta Area Salon”! There are five treatment choices to accommodate your hair type and the look you want to achieve.

Beachy waves are still hot. Create the look with a dollop of mousse and lots of scrunching for sexy, wet-look waves.

Perms are in. If you want beachy waves but have straight hair, get a semi-permanent, texture-enhancing salon perm or body wave like Julianne Hough did to achieve volume and movement in your hair. Rather than going for the big, teased look from the '80s, get a modern perm that offers a soft wave pattern.

Create a dropped-out perm using a chopstick curling iron to create skinny spirals.

Half-straight, half-wavy hair took center stage on the runway. Roots should be kept sleek, with the ends given an “S” wave.

The iconic beehive is back! All up or half-up. Pass me a teasing comb and some hairspray for this retro style that screams Brigitte Bardot.

Long hair? Channel Pippi Longstocking with cute, loose and low pigtail plaits.

 Simple, twisted low knots look sleek and stylish. This easy style is great for disguising unwashed hair or bad hair days.

Sleek blowouts with sweeping, curled ends were hot on the runway. 

 Go bohemian with some micro plaits. Accent braids add a bit of chic to a simple down ‘do.

 The mushroom cut (a bowl-like bob) is cool again.

 Looks like the hun (half-up bun) is here to stay. 

Hair Color Trends & Professional Coloring Techniques:

Delicate blonde hues are big in 2017 and perfect for summer. Shades are soft, almost see-through and pastel.

Hair strobing – individualized highlighting specific to your hair color, face shape and skin tone -- is much more flattering than plain bleach foils. Ask your stylist to customize your highlight colors to your specific features if you want hair color that makes you glow.

Color melting is the new trend that allows colorists to use multiple tones of color to create seamless color from root to ends, whether you are a brunette or a blonde. This multidimensional color effect uses a number of different colors in the same spectrum and blends them together to look as if the highlights could be happening naturally in your hair. 

Eclipting is coloring the entire head with a dark base then strategically placing highlights in specific sections to accentuate the shape of the hair while contouring the face.

Snowlights – With these highlights, shimmering pieces of pale blonde scatter across the top of the head like snow. As you can see from Miranda Lambert's 'do below, it’s a sparkling lift for your summer hair color.

Flaunting your grown-out roots is increasingly trendy. Shadow roots are going to the extreme. Instead of an inch of growth, expect to see a solid five-inch chunk between the root and color. And those impatient for natural grow-out are actually paying to have those roots darkened to achieve this look.

2016’s hottest color trend – rose gold, the color that blew up Instagram – is still hot. Like rose gold precious metals, it’s a pink-tinted blonde that lights up your look.


Warm blondes are making a comeback. Buttery beige and sandy blondes are overtaking icy blondes, as seen below with Gwyneth Paltrow. 


Blorange is the color mix to watch in 2017. It’s a hue between blonde and ginger.

Blonde-Gray is often seen with a solid inch of nearly-black roots. Also gray-gray is still a hit. You can read more about this color in my blog post HERE. 

Bronde is here to stay, a color that sparkles blonde in the light, and goes chocolate in the shadows.

 Honey-colored highlights in dark hair for a super-subtle look is gorgeous.

 Amethyst roots with platinum blonde is hot for a fun look. 

Protecting Your Hair for the 2017 Hairstyles and Colors + against Summer Hair Damage

Please, don’t even think about coloring or perming your hair without protection. And, if you want to go this route, you need to commit to proper hair care maintenance. 

Summer can be torture on your hair with chlorine, UV sun rays, salty ocean water and sweat, and humidity. Protect your hair before and during your summer outdoor activities. Keratin treatments are great for summer hair.

The best salon tools to repair your damaged hair and to protect your hair against any chemical treatment damage are either Olaplex treatments or GKhair SHIELD ADDITIVE+ treatments (read here). After your salon treatments, commit to follow up at home with affordable products from both Olaplex and GKhair.

Salon 1580 is proud to now offer Olaplex Treatments! Our clients' hair has never looked better! We all LOVE the results!

OLAPLEX. One Ingredient Changes Everything. 

Using the Olaplex system, Salon 1580 can give you the softest, shiniest, and healthiest hair imaginable. You can use Olaplex to restore compromised hair, or add it to another chemical service to provide the ultimate breakage insurance.

Olaplex is a bond multiplier that dramatically eliminates breakage from chemical services and leaves hair feeling amazing! Ask your stylist to add Olaplex to your next chemical service for “insurance” against chemical damage! As a color/highlights service upgrade, Olaplex will make your hair stronger and your color will last longer. Include Olaplex before a keratin treatment, for the most transformed, healthy hair imaginable! An Olaplex Treatment repairs the hair shaft; then the GKhair Keratin Treatment penetrates the cuticle of the repaired shaft. Combined, you will have the smoothest, healthiest hair since you were a child!

Wow! Look at that rich color and shine! Our client Neera got overall color, an Olaplex reconstruction treatment  (permanently repairing the treated hair and as "insurance" against breakage for the color!),  a healthy trim, and a GKhair "Fast Blow Dry" (mini-keratin) treatment for smooth hair that will last 4-6 weeks.

Olaplex is available also as a stand-alone treatment (used with no other chemical services) to repair damaged hair. 

THE OLAPLEX DIFFERENCE is Real Science, with Real Results. Go beyond the surface with the only salon system that rebuilds broken hair bonds. We can help you PREVENT DAMAGE to your hair and even REPAIR YOUR HAIR.

The Olaplex simple three-step process includes a patented active ingredient that works on a molecular level to seek out broken bonds in the hair that are caused by chemical, thermal, and mechanical damage. THIS IS PERMANENT REPAIR to the hair which is treated.
Olaplex was developed by two of the world's leading chemists. This dream team invented a single-ingredient chemistry that is free of silicones and oils. Olaplex links broken bonds in the hair before, during, and after chemical services.

The three-step system that completely changes the game. Whether it's used as a stand-alone mini-treatment or as insurance for another salon chemical service, Olaplex produces incredibly healthy hair.
Olaplex No.1: Bond Multiplier®
This concentrated, first-step salon treatment process rebuilds broken disulfide bonds and begins the process of preventing damage and repairing hair.

Olaplex No.2: Bond Perfector®
This second-step salon treatment process continues to rebuild and restore any remaining broken bonds, ensuring the strongest, shiniest, and healthiest hair possible.

Olaplex No.3: Hair Perfector
This final retail step provides our clients continuous protection, at home, from ongoing damage.

Olaplex Treatments (“Stand Alone Treatment,” with no other chemical service): starts at only $35*

Olaplex Treatments (“with another chemical service”): starts at only $30*
Olaplex Step No.3 -- the Take Home product -- is only $35. You will use this reconstruction treatment once weekly at home to continue repairing and protecting your hair to achieve the softest, shiniest, and healthiest hair imaginable.

*Extra charge may apply for hair length below the shoulders, above-average thickness, and/or dry, damaged hair, as this will require more product and service time.

Try Olaplex! If you are in the Atlanta area, call today for a consultation or appointment! 678-361-4247
