7 Hairstyles Inspired by DeKalb College Students
Ask any beauty professional: there’s a million awesome reasons to work in the beauty industry. One thing that many beauty pros will tell you is that they love the ability to be creative. It’s one of the most exciting parts of the job.
Being creative isn’t always easy. Sometimes even the most creative people hit roadblocks. Luckily there’s lots of places to look for creative inspiration. A few great places to look are Pinterest, Instagram, your favorite fashion magazines, or just people watching at the mall. Students at our Sycamore, Illinois campus have a unique source of creative inspiration: DeKalb, Illinois
DeKalb the College Town
Northern Illinois University is located in DeKalb, Illinois which is only a few minutes from our Sycamore campus. NIU students and Hair Pros students can often be found hanging out in the same places. Because our Sycamore campus is so close to the college campus, we get students visiting our salon. They always want the latest looks and styles. It’s important for the DeKalb kids to be on top of the latest trends.
7 DeKalb Inspired Hairstyles for 2018
Because we are so close to a college campus, we thought it would be a good idea to create a list of some of the latest and greatest college looks. Here’s 7 looks inspired by the students of DeKalb:
1. Silver Strands
Pastel hair stain is a thing of the past. Going platinum silver is where it’s going to be at in the new year!
2. Bangs are Big
Bangs are a big hit! They’re going to be huge in 2018. Make ‘em short and choppy and you’ll be right on.
3. Short Hair is a Homerun
For some industry leading stylists, it’s all about the short cuts. These looks are going to be huge in 2018!
4. Short & Messy
For the dudes, having really short sides is going to be where it’s at in 2018. Short on the sides, messy on top is going to be awesome and easy, a win win.
5. Short & Tidy
If you’re one of our sharp NIU students in DeKalb, maybe you want to keep it a little more clean looking. Go short on the sides and tidy on top.
6. Let It Grooooow
Not looking to keep it short and styled. No worries. Let it grow. Men with long hair is going to be great in 2018, no doubt. Just beware, the man bun is a cliche now. If you grow it out, do something else.
7. Don’t Forget to Accessorize
No matter what style you choose to go for, hair accessories are going to be huge in 2018. Have fun and get creative with them!
