Everything you need to know about the “Glass hair trend”

Who would have thought that hair trends instead of starting on the runway would in fact start online! The glass hair trend is exactly what you imagine after hearing the name and it started via none other than Kim Kardashian and followed shortly by Lucy Hale & Jennifer Yepez all looking smooth, shinny and perfectly styled straight hair. So what is it and how do you get it, well the look is a bob ( and obviously length variations can be different ) but its healthy looking and preferably feeling hair. Its kind of basic if you think about it and if your hair is fried then its going to take time and a little effort from you to be able to get there!

Firstly the hair is cut into a very sharp boob that has no angles and is the one length, it needs to be the one length otherwise the hair will become flyaway from the layers and will be harder to get that smooth finish that is required for the look. What can be done is a clear gloss color, which is a color that is completely clear, this adds a coating of clear to help reflect light and give it more shine. Styling is done gently and depending on the hair texture you may need to iron it gently. Using a heat protecting serum and a light spray but a fair amount to ensure that the humidity doesn’t interrupt with the finish!
