Keith gives us the 411 on the hottest 'dos hitting the red carpet.
The hair trend this year is up-dos & ponytails. Anything off face and shows your natural beauty. These styles are not meant to be perfect. It's generally simple, classic and effortless. Forget about the shiny or sleek look, channel your inner Jennifer Lawrence if you're attempting this style.
This simple hair style is easy to achieve but it's all about the products. Keith recommends:

Sleek Look Sealing Serum by Matrix $20 www.walmart.com

The next hair trend is a bit more bold! "T
his is the year of the powerful woman, who dares" says Keith.
This "to-die-for" hair style is sweeping 2016. The "Mid-Length" is extremely versatile and can be worn as a bob, messy waves to give you that sassy finish or you can even go classic with a bun, ponytail and up-do. There's so many styles you can achieve that's why everyone loves this hair trend.
