Proms and Weddings Trends 2018

Whether it’s your prom or your wedding, you probably dream of this day since a long time. The JACQUES DESPARS MASTER STYLISTS offer you advices on the proms and weddings trends 2018 for a beauty look that will have heads turn your way on this special day.


This year, the trends are very natural. Even more than ever, we play with the natural side of the hair, using their raw texture. There are also lots of waves and loose curls.

The Jacques Despars experts suggest two hairstyle trends:

Express Chignon

In simplicity, we adopt the bun look slightly neglected with a lot of texture.

Seaside Waves

The hair falls into a cascade on the back. We can clear the
face for more comfort during the evening with a half-updo.

To make these hairstyles you will need:

• For pre-styling brushing, use styling cream
Get It Straight from REF: anti-frizz care and protection
against moisture.

Jacques Despars curling iron : For more relaxed curls and waves,
Jacques Despars experts advise you to use a large cylinder (32 mm).
Wrap up wicks around the barrel, without using the clip, to get
beautiful, soft and durable curls.

• If you prefer to use heated rollers or velcro ones,
Jacques Despars experts advise you the PLI SHAPER
techniART thermo spray from L’Oréal Professionnel
better styling and guaranteed support throughout
the evening.

• Apply NATURAL Dry Lift texture and volume paste
of AG Haircare on your roots to restore volume to
hair, make them more malleable and shiny.

• To attach a bun or loops, use the Control
Addict 28 hairspray from Redken for optimal support.
It offers control and resistance to moisture for 24h!


As for hairstyles, Jacques Despars experts suggest to wear a
hair color that is in natural tones. They also suggest adding
light effects to coloring to bring out the movement of your evening
hairstyle. To achieve this effect, Jacques Despars experts advise you
very thin highlights or a tone on tone balayage that is slightly lighter than
your base color. We are not trying to make a contrast, but add relief and
brightness to showcase your beautiful hairstyle.
