Every Chinese New Year comes the same old dilemma – what are you going to wear? More importantly, what new hairstyle are you going to give yourself? Chinese New Year is the time for us to freshen up our appearances and, in so doing, rejuvenate our spirits to anticipate the new year ahead.
To help you stay ahead of the curve, we’ve approached L’Oreal Professionnel for their take on what will be the hottest looks this coming festive season, inspired by the latest runway trends during the Spring/Summer 2018 season.
The hairstyles and hair colours mentioned below are specifically designed by L’Oreal Professionnel to bring only the trendiest looks from the runways of Asian Fashion Weeks to Singaporean women, while also taking into account local tastes and preferences.
The colours have been specially created by L’Oreal Professionnel based on their research into what Singaporean women prefer and look good in.

Bangs are back. Yes, you’ve heard us right. Bangs never really went away, but they’re now the hottest topic on the Spring/Summer 2018 fashion runways during the Fashion Weeks happening all around Asia.
Instead of a straight-across cut for your bangs, it will be more stylish this season to taper off your bangs so that the hair on either side of your face will be slightly longer than the middle.
This style is particularly stylish for those with oval faces, and was originally spotted on the runways at the Tokyo and Shanghai Fashion Weeks.
The model sports the hair colour Maple Spring, which will look best on those with darker complexions. If you are a ray of sunshine with a sporty personality, this hair colour is going to be up your alley!
If you’re just not the kind to go for bangs that have no parting, consider side-swept bangs this festive season. Make sure that the cut is on the heavier and more voluminous side.
This style of bangs will be the most flattering for those with long and layered haircuts, as it matches the rest of your hairstyle seamlessly for a fashion-forward look. The hairstyle was first seen at Seoul Fashion Week, so fans of Korean entertainment, take note!
The model has dyed her hair Scarlet Gold, a unique take on social media’s favourite colour Rose Gold. The colour is best contrasted with a fair and pale skin tone. The warm and reddish colour will brighten up your complexion and make it look even more luminous than before, and who doesn’t want that?
If you fancy something a little more adventurous and funky, yet feminine and whimsical at the same time, go for this hairstyle.
What comes off as a traditional lob is made more stylish and memorable with the addition of wispy layers as well as the long bangs. The look was spotted at and inspired by runway trends from Seoul and Singapore Fashion Weeks.
The eye-catching Earl Grey hair dye seen on the model is the perfect way to try out metallic hair colours, predicted to be one of the hottest hair trends in 2018.
The base hair colour is a cool brown which gorgeously complements the silver-metallic accents in the hair. This hair colour will be super flattering for those with a rosy, fair complexion.
