Diva Hair Design: 16 hair trends that will never go out of style

You may need a breath of fresh hair if you can’t seem to keep your hair out of a ponytail or bun. Lucky for you, there’s a Diva-approved list of hair designs that you can look into for inspiration. 

Call in for an appointment with your regular Diva hair stylist so she can help you choose from these 21 hair trends that will never go out of style: 

1. Alice band bleach

This is a growing popular colour trend with hair bands framing the face in bold deep sections and bold daring colour contrasts. You can use everything from beautiful clean blondes, to pretty pastels, to bold hues to suit the mood.

2. Soft balayage

This is an easily managed mid-length and layered hairstyle with soft natural colours.

3. The big chop

This hairstyle is big on the dramatic and shorter cut with fringes.

4. Toffee tones

This will work on any length with toffee and caramel tones and highlights.

5. Air-dried hair

Air-dried textures are more about embracing your natural waves and curls and hair with much more personality and character.

6. Red hot

Both soft coppers and reds were influenced by pre-Raphaelite soft tones. It’s all down to the consultation with your colourist so it matches your skin tone and looks super flattering.

7. The modern mullet

These shag haircuts are layered, giving you a slightly rock and roll look.

8. Homely headscarves

This is the kind of hair that you can wear at home with your house jumper. The style is not overly complicated with braids loosely done so little bits fall out and the look is lovely and soft.

9. Mermaid hair

This is an extra-long fantasy hair with tapes, bond extensions and mermaid hair colour.

10. Giant crimping

This hairstyle is not a throwback from the 70s, this is more like a giant crimper that gives a scrunched tight beach wave that looks like you had your hair in plaits.

11. Effortless bob

This undone bob hairstyle is an easily maintained cut that is super chic, relaxed and looks effortless.

12. Bubblegum pink

One of the most popular shades of brighter pink because it’s flattering on everyone.

13. Bold colour

This includes hair colours that have stronger looks with more definition and contrast that will easily stand out.

14. Bigger is better

This is a hairstyle that’s easy to manage on the go and complements any fashion.

15. Androgynous side parts

This hairstyle has clean side partings and is styled in place using a bristle brush and hair spray to keep the hair smooth.

16. 40s waves

This hairstyle recreates the classic 40s wave with a big front section curl but the rest of the hair just flows naturally.

Diva Hair Design: How to care for bleached hair

Diva Hair Design: How to care for bleached hair

Bleaching has become the newest trend in this day and age. Gone are the days wherein people were too conscious of sporting loud and bold colours such as pink, blue, green, and purple. It’s become a way for people to express their individual identity and creativity. Even at workplaces, it’s becoming normal to sport an exotic colour. 

Get your hair bleached at Diva Hair Design salon! There are many colours to choose from if you’re bold enough to try. Rest assured that our highly skilled and talented hairstylists can help you figure out what style and colour you’d want for your newly bleached hair. 

Bleached hair maintenance

It’s fun to have bleached hair because you can play with as many colours as you want. You can even take it up a notch by sporting a rainbow-coloured look that’s bound to make a few heads turn when you strut down the streets. 

However, taking care of bleached hair comes with great responsibility. Here are some of the tips that you need to know on maintaining this hairstyle: 

  1. Minimize washing your hair

The process of bleaching can severely damage your hair because the chemicals used leaves hair cuticle layers open and weakened. This leaves you with hair that’s dry and frizzy when not properly maintained. 

Washing your hair every day with a harsh shampoo is the fastest way for your colour to fade. You’ll also strip away the moisture and essential nutrients from your hair when regularly washing it. For you to avoid further damages to your hair, wash it every three to four days. This can help your hair breathe and recover from the damaging effects of shampooing every day. 

  1. Use colour-preserving shampoo

Usual shampoos that you buy from the local supermarket don’t have the right ingredients to take care of your bleached hair. On bleached hair, colour fades easily. There are special shampoos that can revitalize your locks and help extend the life of your hair colour. Moreover, these specialized shampoos prevent your hair to fade into a different brassy colour. 

  1. Avoid heat styling at all costs

Straighteners, curlers, and hairdryers should be avoided when sporting bleached hair. Your follicles are already too weakened and applying heat can lead to further damages. It’ll cause your hair to fall off because it isn’t strong enough to withstand this kind of styling. 

If you really need these heat-powered tools, you should at least apply a heat protectant to your hair before styling. Although it isn’t a fool-proof way to protect your hair, it can still provide a layer of protection against the harsh heat of hairstyling tools. 

  1.  Never brush your hair wet

It’s a cardinal sin to brush your hair right after taking a shower. Combing your locks while still wet can break your already fragile follicles. You’ll have to wait until your hair is dry before you brush and detangle hair. However, always make sure that you brush gently since bleached hair follicles are damaged and can break off easily. 

How flash hair removal works at Diva Hair Design

How flash hair removal works at Diva Hair Design

There are plenty of hair removal processes out there. You can visit dedicated salons for such treatments, or you can buy products that let you do the process at your own time in your own home. 

From shaving and waxing to sugaring and laser hair removal, we’ve gone a long way down the road of innovation in the dermatology industry. We’ve gone through impressive progress when it comes to making hair removal easier, painless and longer-lasting. 

Here in Diva Hair Design, we use the latest technological method that is dermatologically tested, proven to be effective in the long run and totally pain-free. Introducing flash hair removal, a method that uses intense pulsed light (IPL) in reducing hair growth until it completely stops through a series of treatments.

About flash hair removal

Waxing, shaving and sugaring provide temporary relief from hair in certain parts of your body. But eventually, they grow back after a few weeks or so, and you have to repeat the same gruelling process of removing them again. Twice every month you bend your back just to reach every nook and cranny in your body and remove stubborn hair with your trusty razor. 

If you prefer others to do the trouble of removing unwanted hair in your body, you need to spend a lot of money in waxing salons when you could’ve allotted the time and money for something else. You could do laser hair removal but it’s so expensive! And people say it’s really painful. 

What to do? You don’t want to go out and wear dresses with hair on your legs. It can be such a frustrating dilemma. Do you go with the cheap yet tiresome process or the expensive and painful treatment?

In Diva Hair Design, you won’t have to choose between two drastic methods. Our flash hair removal is cheap, painless, and a permanent solution to unwanted hair. Compared to your other options, this is definitely the best one. 

How flash hair removal works

This process uses intense pulsed light (IPL) that gives immediate results that improve with repeated use. It emits brief flashes of light that have concentrated extreme heat. Hair follicles absorb this heat, burning them in the process. The heat also affects the surrounding shaft where the hair growth cells are, scarring and effectively destroying them permanently. As a result, the hair will never grow again. 

But this treatment isn’t done in just one session. It requires a continuous process to make sure that all hair growth cells are permanently burned and closed. Since hair growth cells don’t spur growth at the same time, you’ll still see hair after your first session. This is not regrowth from burnt growth cells, but rather regrowth from growth cells that weren’t mature enough to be affected by IPL during the first session.

Comparing other hair removal processes

Diva Hair Design uses flash hair removal, not just in removing unwanted hair, but also in caring for skin roughened by self-treatment. It produces a hair removal effect with the use of stable light and ingredients contained in the gel we use. 

Compared to laser hair removal, there is no pain in our method. Unlike razors and hair removal creams, flash hair removal has little to no damage to the skin surface. You won’t need additional care for your skin to remedy negative side effects.

Let’s compare three processes and see how flash hair removal stands out!

Pain during treatment

  • Traditional hair removal: There’s a sharp and intense burning sensation.
  • Laser hair removal: Intense heat can be felt on a wide surface area on the skin and can cause irritation.
  • Flash hair removal: There’s a possibility of a slight pain for a moment but most of the time, it’s completely painless.

Damage to the skin

  • Traditional hair removal: Using razors, wax and tweezers have a high possibility of inflammation of the skin, bleeding, pigmentation, blood infection, darkening and chicken skin.
  • Laser hair removal: May cause burns or spots depending on your skin condition.
  • Flash hair removal: Almost none. The intense heat from the light is focused on targeting the dark pigment of hair follicles so it won’t burn anything else including your skin.

The average number of processing at one time

  • Traditional hair removal: One hair follicle
  • Laser hair removal: 1 to 30 hair follicles
  • Flash hair removal: 80 to 120 hair follicles

Treatment time

  • Traditional hair removal: 1 hour for both arms
  • Laser hair removal: About 30 minutes for both arms
  • Flash hair removal: 5 minutes for both arms

Treatment Fee

  • Traditional hair removal: Cheap but you’ll need to buy periodically
  • Laser hair removal: Expensive for a few sessions
  • Flash hair removal: Low price for a few sessions

The step-by-step process of flash hair removal

Flash hair removal can sound scary and intimidating for first-timers. It’s new, and for some, this might be the first time they are hearing this. Worry not! We’re here to show you how it’s done so you’ll understand that there’s nothing to be afraid of. This process is totally safe and dermatologically tested, approved and recommended.

Growing hair has thick roots and a large amount of melanin which absorbs light easily. 
There are hair matrix cells around the hair.
A flash of light is emitted and it reacts with the melanin of the hair. It causes protein denaturation in the hair and its surrounding cellular tissues. As a result, it reduces hair growth.The hair and the surrounding tissues that have reacted once with the flash of light are naturally discharged by the body as a waste product. It’s completely painless.After that, new hairs develop in undetected hair growth cells, but they become thinner or weaker than before.After several treatments, the hair matrix becomes clear and the pores shrink, resulting in smooth, hairless skin.


About your hair cycle

The hair cycle is defined by the repeated cycle from hair growth to hair loss. It’s mainly divided into different periods namely, the growth period, regression period, and rest period. The hair then repeatedly grows and loses along this cycle. Because of our hair cycle, not all care is completed in one go. Treating it requires a repeated process, thus the series of treatments you need to completely remove unwanted hair.

The length of the cycle depends on the body part where hair grows but the general cycle is as follows:

During the first growing period, the hair matrix begins to divide and hair begins to grow in the skin.Afterwards, hair growth cells become active, and the hair follicle continues to grow until it appears on the surface of the skin.This is the period where hair growth stops and just falls off.After the hair falls, there’s no more hair follicle underneath the skin. The hair growth cells prepare for the next period to begin where hair starts to grow again.


Risk of self-processing

Removing hair all by yourself is a hard task. There are crevices that are just impossible to reach with whatever tool you’re using. Aside from that, there’s also a lot of risks with the tools and products you’re using. By using cheaper methods, you’re not just putting your skin in harm’s way, but you’re also opening the door to a lot of possible negative side effects.

Check each cheap alternative and see the risks that come with using them repeatedly.

Razor treatmentUsing razors scrapes away not just the protruding hair on the surface but even the skin surface itself. It can cause skin irritation and darkening in the long run if continued.TweezersThe process of removing hair using tweezers causes the pores to expand and become conspicuous. In the long run, it causes “chicken skin” by pulling the hair forcibly.This process leaves the pores open and exposed to bacteria. Bacillus can enter the pores and cause inflammation.Cream treatmentsHair removal creams contain a component that dissolves protein to make the hair removal process possible with just a swipe. However, it does not only dissolve protein from the hair, but it also removes the protein in the skin.This can cause severe damage to delicate and sensitive skin.

Blunt bob

Devoid of any layered cuts, the blunt bob frames women’s faces perfectly. It isn’t as complicated as a layered crop or a shaggy cut which can make your natural beauty stand out. Even though it’s a style that’s fairly new to the beauty industry, this cut will surely rise to the top of classic hairstyles for powerful women. It gives you a sleek and classic look without making too much fuss. 

Full bangs

Whatever your preferred hair length and texture, sporting full bangs can complete your look! It’s the best way for women to look charming and chic every day.

For naturally curly-haired women, it’s time to break free from societal standards of sleek straight hair! Embrace the curls and let it run wild on your head for that edgy and striking look. Switch things up a bit and let it grow, or cut it into layers for maximum volume. 

Classic haircuts for men

Give yourself a makeover that will make people swoon when they see you. Getting a classic haircut suited for the modern man is a great way to start your year to boost your confidence. Our stylists are equipped with the latest cutting edge equipment that’ll improve your hairstyle. 

Here are some of the classic haircuts you can request at our salon:

French crop

If you are looking for low maintenance hairstyles, then this is the perfect choice for you. This hairstyle is quite simple and easy to style using your favourite hair gel. It’s also a cut that men with thinning and receding hairlines often choose because there’s a lengthy fringe on top that can cover any patches.

Buzzcut

A buzzcut is a timeless hairstyle that can make any square-jawed man look elegant and strong. Although this cut fits limited face shapes in men, pulling this off can help boost your confidence and uplift your spirits. Some barbers have techniques to make this hairstyle work for more rounded and oval-shaped heads. 

Even if this haircut looks simple, there are different variations of this style depending on the barber. They take into consideration your personality, style, and day-to-day activities to make the haircut work for you and fit you perfectly. 

Slick back hairstyle

One of the timeless classics that was popularized in the 1920s, the slick back hairstyle can make any man look dashing and cool. The men during this era loved styling their hair into this sleek look because it doesn’t get easily ruined even after wearing a hat all day. 

Now that we’re in the 21st century and men don’t often wear fedoras anymore, the cut is adapted to modern times. Before, this style is often sported by businessmen clad in chic suits, but nowadays it can also go perfectly with a more casual ensemble.

Although it’s easier to maintain this cut for those with straight hair, men with natural curls can achieve this look by using hairspray and strong gel. 

Side parting

Another classic haircut for men, the side parting rose to popularity in the early 1920s up to the 1940s. It also made a comeback during the ‘60s especially for men working in an office setting. 

Unlike the slick back, this hairstyle can fit any hair types and face shapes. This look can help frame your face to look sleek and edgy. 

Shoulder length hair

Let your hair grow up to your shoulders and get your stylist to layer it for you to achieve the shoulder-length look. It’s a sleek and refined style that has been in fashion for years. This classic look is perfect both for a smart-casual wardrobe and a laid-back look. 

This haircut is best when you let your hair fall naturally on your shoulders. Hair products such as hairspray and gel aren’t needed when styling this.  Although it looks sleek, it is high maintenance because you’ll be needing a good shampoo and conditioner to keep your hair in tip-top shape. 

Hi-top fade

The hi-top fade is becoming more and more popular with millennials today because of it’s casual and volumized look. It’s a crowd favourite in barbershops and salons because Will Smith made it popular back in the ‘90s when the first episode of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air graced the TV sets. 

Now that these kids grew and turned into fine young men, this haircut can give them a nostalgic trip back to the ‘90s. Moreover, it’s a classic look that’ll boost a man’s confidence to face the world. 

Funky hair colours

Are you willing to venture into bolder and funkier hairstyles this 2021? Look no further from these hair colours you can try to make your overall look fresher and livelier! Step out of your comfort zone and try these bold colours that will take your personal style to the next level.

Temporary hair colour

If this is your first time in trying bold colours, then it’s best to test the waters with temporary hair colours that can quickly fade away after a few days. It’s a healthier alternative to bleaching your hair since you don’t have to put harsh chemicals all over your hair to achieve the colour you want. 

Ash-blonde

For those who are bold enough to try bleach, take it to the next level and try an ash blonde look. This bold and classic hair colour can give your face a healthy glow and it’ll look good in any of your wardrobe choices.
