Admit it. You haven’t changed your hair color and style in a very long time.

There is a lot of fear involved in changing our look. We get comfortable and set in with our image and tend to ignore how we really feel about our self esteem. Depending on your age and where you are in life can greatly impact this.

Don’t be afraid. Be bold, get excited and take the leap. The new shorter cuts seen on celebrities like Jenna Elfman are fabulous. Certain styles may not translate as well as you get older — but that doesn’t mean you should forgo hair trends altogether once you reach your 30s, 40s, 50s and beyond.

A good consultation with your stylist about your ideas, goals and wishes and some pictures of styles and colors that you like is a great place to start. Bazaar is calling some of the hottest hair trends for 2017 that could be the magic for you.

Super Slick
Straight, shiny, and center-parted hair is one of the biggest trends for 2017. But this style only works if your hair looks healthy.
The High Pony
Slick your hair up. All the way up. Done in rumpled texture or stick-straight, the high ponytail adds both an elegance and ease to every ensemble.

The Hair Flip
The easiest hairstyle trend to copy this year? The hair flip. All it requires is you to flip your hair from one side to the other, creating tons of volume as a result.

Sophisticated Bangs

Side-swept bangs look modern and sophisticated, and instantly update a casual pony or chignon.

Golden Bronde
In some lighting it’s blonde. In others it’s golden brown. It’s the perfect warm-toned hair color that can be adjusted to work on all skin tones.

What style and color is best for you? Don’t do anything because it’s the trend. Do it because it’s the best for your face shape. The best cut is always the right cut for your face shape. The best color is the best for your skin tone and overall coloring.

How do you see yourself in 2017?
