We all know that TikTok has some weird, silly, and even dangerous trends that people insist on following to various degrees of success, embarrassment, and hospitalization. But one thing that TikTok does well is give a ton of inspiration for people to follow when it comes to their hair. From mini hair tutorials to the trends that blossom to show what everyone else is doing, TikTok is a great place to start when you are looking to try something new. And if you pair your TikTok finds with the technologically advanced products and tools that we offer at FHI Heat, you will have a winning combination that will make your hair a trend in its own right!
To say that braids are everywhere on TikTok is no exaggeration. One of the best looks for braids this season, and certainly one of the most fun, features a middle part and lots of volume. Start at the top front of your hair and gather a small section, securing it in an elastic. Do the same about an inch behind it, and continue until you get to the end of your hair. Tug carefully on the hair in each section once you are done in order to create the bubble shape. Hold this light-hearted look in place with our Stay Beautiful Light Hold Dry Hair Spray 10 oz, which dries immediately and resists humidity. This will give you all day support and resist flyaways, without weighing your bubbles down!
We all love a high ponytail for its sleek, sophisticated look, and also because it is a quick and easy look to create. But if you feel like your pony has been dragging lately, TikTok offers a simple way to increase your volume. First, gather the top part of your hair into a ponytail at the crown of your head. Then, use the remaining hair on the bottom, dividing it into two sections and bringing them up around the first ponytail. When you secure your hair with a second elastic, you will be amazed by the volume!
We recommend curling your hair before creating the ponytails so that your hair can achieve peak volume. Our Pro Bounce Curler 1” is the perfect tool for the job, with its edge to edge ceramic heater and tourmaline infused plates that seal in moisture, reduce frizz, and eliminate static.
If you have looked at TikTok in the last several years, then you have no doubt seen the trend for curtain bangs burgeoning, and it is definitely still going strong. With a look that flatters every face shape, curtain bangs will slim your face while also adding bounce and movement to your hair. Use our Platform Signature Pro Styler to create soft layers, and make the most of your curtain bangs. Our HydraHeat™ technology will lock in moisture and reduce the frizz that sometimes occurs in curtain bangs, so that your look will be polished all day long.
Another TikTok trend that is blowing up the airways are face-framing layers, which are a magical panacea for all hair types. Long or short, textured or straight, if you have layers that start around your cheekbones or jaw and get longer, these lovely layers are all the rage right now. In order to style your face framing layers like the pros, choose The Waver Pro Dual Barrel Waver to work its magic on your hair. This cutting-edge tool is the latest piece in our Innovator collection, and will create luminous, long lasting waves in your layers.
Although much of TikTok is covered with layers, many celebrity hairstylists are predicting that a short, thick bob with either a center part or a heavy side part will also be huge for this year. With the weight of your hair kept at the ends with a bob, the good news is that your hair will appear thicker and healthier. For the shiniest, silkiest hair around, try our Sheer Remedy Liquid Satin Treatment. Our silk protein and silk amino base penetrates deeply and gives you the strength and smoothness you need to pull off a blunt bob.
One of the easiest looks to create is a messy bun, and it continues to be a TikTok specialty. Twist your plain old hair tie to form a double look, while you pull your hair up into a high pony, easily sliding the doubled-up elastic over it at the base. You will want to stop when you are around ¾ of the way through to form a big loop, then pull the loop through the open end. In order to make sure your hair is as voluminous as possible, try The Polisher Pro Air Drying Brush before you start the loops, which can dry and style at the same time.
We can’t promise that you will be a TikTok star, but if you try one of these trends with our FHI products and tools in hand, you are sure to be looking your best when you get your full look.
