Some of 2016's biggest trends, such as chrome nails are expected to stick around for a little bit longer while newly buzzy trends like microblading are poised to blow up in a big way. 

Below, we highlight the five top beauty trends for 2017, according to Pinterest. 

Braided Top Knots

This year, the top knot proved to be more than just a lazy day hairstyle. By adding plaits into the mix, celebrity hairstylists to stars like Julianne Hough and Hailee Steinfeld made the casual look red carpet-worthy.

Chrome Nails

The dazzling trend, created by buffing chrome pigment onto nails, has received a whopping 570% increase in interest on Pinterest, and the site doesn't foresee the craze fizzling out anytime soon. 

And it's not just nail polish junkies who are obsessing over the mirror finish look. Gigi Hadid turned heads with her chrome manicure at the 2016 Met Gala.

Microblading 

The buzzy brow treatment, which is a semi-permanent cosmetic tattoo that fills in sparse areas with natural results, got even more attention after actress Bella Thorne Snapchatted the process during a visit to Los Angeles-based microblading artist Júlia Faria Elmassian.

Ash Balayage 

Ombre hair as we once knew it is not poised to make a comeback next year. Instead, the trend has morphed into a subtle gradient style.

For the year ahead, Pinterest predicts that silver to ash blonde looks will reign supreme. It's a gradual approach to an edgy style the site declared.
