Popular Hairstyles Around The World

Are you tired of wearing the same hairstyle over and over again? Have you been looking at popular hairstyles on the internet but can’t decide which one to choose? If your hairstyle makes you feel lifeless whenever you look at yourself in the mirror, then it’s time for a makeover!  Styling and makeovers are fun. But finding the perfect hairstyle could be a great challenge. Sure, we see our favorite celebrities sport trendy hairstyles and they immediately become our inspirations for our look.

In the U.S, Hollywood stars set the cue of what’s in when it comes to beauty. When we saw Jennifer Lawrence ditch her thick, long locks for a pixie hair, women across the United States started chopping their once precious tresses to join the hype.

When we think of having a new look, we don’t just consider what looks good on us. We also consider what will make us feel comfortable, more like ourselves or what we want to be. For instance, many women want to wear European hairstyles because British and French women look good with it. Besides, the vibe of being European, even with just the hair, feels classy and regal.

The same goes for women who decide they want to try Korean hairstyles just because Korean pop culture, or K-Pop, is cool. Not to mention that Korean hairstyles have started being a favorite of girls who want to look younger and more trendy, thanks to the increasing popularity of K-Pop craze around the globe.

If you are one of those women who always have trouble with finding the right hairstyle, this blog is for you. In this article, we made a selection of the most popular hairstyles from around the world that would never fail you.


1.  The Pixie Cut

Shorter and cropped pixie hair is a classic favorite among women since the 1950’s when actress Audrey Hepburn wore the style in her debut film Roman Holiday.

The pixie cut is popular in the US, Europe, and Asia most particularly in Korea, Japan, and China. It is a go-to style for women of all races because it is versatile that you can wear it slicked back, spiked, tight curls, finger waved or the messy style. This popular hairstyle is perfect for women who want to go really short.

Hair Mood Today?

So what mood are you in today?

Often times our hairstyles reflect our current dispositions. Whether we are in the mood to “Glam-Up” or be somewhat “Sporty” or even walk on the wild-side.

How about this look for a try?

Today, we present the Cinnamon Bun. (See Mary J. Blige photo)

To achieve this look, first blow-dry the hair straight then apply a shine-enhancing pomade such as the Demorin Soothing Serum.
Next, divide hair into 2 separate ponytails towards the back of the head.
Please note that you may want to include additional hair, whether clip-in or otherwise “fill-in”, at this point. This hair should match your natural hair color as closely as possible and will provide length to locks.
Now braid the ponytails, then grab the right braid to begin wrapping it around your head counter-clockwise and secure with bobby pins as needed.
You are almost there…Next, tuck the end of the plait into the left ponytail holder before coiling that braid around clockwise until you’ve created one large braided bun.
To finish off, set the style with a blast of holding hairspray.

Decide your mood and let us know how we can help make it work!






Tousled Hair Glam

What are you plans this season? Want to appear part glamorous and part…well; flirtatious?

With the bevy of Holiday parties on the list and not too mention the New Year’s Eve party, which it is never too early to prepare for, you may want to consider something “outside-the-Holiday-Party-box”. Have you considered The Tousled Hair Look?

Creating this style will be more easily conducive for straight hair types. However, if your hair is curly you can pull-it-out with a blow-drier and flat iron initially. Still be guarded with the amount of heat, especially if you are wearing the ONYC® Kinky Curly hair.

Ok so to accomplish this look this is what you will need; a Flat brush, a tail comb, curling iron (a 1″ barrel works well), and voluminous (anti-humidifier) hair spray, a few clips.

Now to get to work…..

  • Firstly; Spray the hair throughout, with the voluminous hair spray. This provides texture, equips and provides foundation for the next step.
  • Secondly, for curling separate medium sized vertical sections of the hair. Begin at the hairline by Rolling the hair away from the face.
  • As you begin curling, wrap the hair around the barrel or entire iron. You do not want to place the hair inside of the iron. Also, leave the hair out at the hair-end. These 2 tips are so not to make perfect and orderly ringlets.
  • Additionally, to develop the Tousled Look alternate the direction of each section. Since the front section, at the hair line was rolled away from the face (or toward the back) turn the next section toward the front of the face. Can you picture it? Alternate the direction of each roll; back then front, back then front.
  • The above steps should result in natural looking wavy contour.
  • Next use your fingers and run them through your hair like a comb.
  • If you notice any fly-aways, it is a good idea to gently spray the hair with your hair spray once more.

So if you are in the mood for alluring yet elegant hair, give this a try! Kerry Washington showcased this hair design at her very recent Uptown Magazine shoot. Check her out in the pic above, and other versions below:

Have You Heard of ….”The Coiffure Project?”

Have you heard of the Glenford Nunez Coiffure Project?….

Well don’t feel badly, we just heard of it ourselves.

Glenford Nunez is a young photographer who was surprised to learn that more and more Black women, and the number is still climbing, are embracing their natural tresses regardless of the method they use to get there. So with his genuinely creative mind, he embarked upon a project to capture the essence and the beauty of locks of women from the African Diaspora.

To do this the 25 year old – based in Baltimore, MD – set up shop at his TYP Photography Studios and got “cracking”! He initially started off by shooting photographs of his natural haired assistant and moved on to taking pics of  10 more candidates. Each photo is quite imaginative and although they mostly reside on his website, Nunez plans to acquire more subjects and eventually create a Coffee Table Book.

The transition to natural hair can be a cause of stress for some but it is honestly does not have to be. Incorporating natural textured, quality hair extensions can sincerely help with the conversion. Depending on the texture one possesses, ONYC® offers hair textures such as the popular Kinky Curly (see pic below), as well as the Curly Addiction (see pic below). These textures can be used to cover the entire Coiffure with the use of a Frontal Closure – which invented by our CEO, specifically works to protect the hair –  or with a “leave out” to supplement one’s own hair. So please don’t be anxious. If you are considering showcasing your God-Given hair, you do have options!

Celebrate You today!….and let’s celebrate “The Coiffure Project”.
