Top Hair Trends of 2016

For those of you who like to be ‘the style-setter’, we have the perfect blog for you. Get the lowdown on the hottest hair trends for the season ahead. But shhhhh, don’t tell anyone!

The Nape Knot

Sure, this look isn’t ground breaking, but perfecting it so it looks neat but effortless is tough. The trick is to work with hair that isn’t freshly washed and apply dry shampoo to the roots. Then use a paddle brush to pull into a low ponytail before you twist and wrap. Secure with as few pins as possible to keep it in place – pin overload and it looks like you’ve worked too hard at it!

Rope Braids

What do you get when you combine a slicked back ponytail with twisted lengths? The perfect rope braid of course! As with the nape knot, you want the hair to be pulled back neatly and tightly, so don’t try this with fluffy, freshly washed hair. For the perfect high ponytail, split your hair into two panels from ear-to-ear. Use a comb to pull the top section into a high pony and secure. Then brush the bottom section up to join, and secure with another band over the top. This helps get a super sleek result – no bumps!

For the rope braid, split the length of the ponytail into two panels. Remove any tangles then spritz with a finishing spray (for extra grip!) Twist the two panels in opposite directions then cross these over.  Secure the ends with a band.

Tousled Texture

Effortless, loose and ‘lazy’ texture is BIG news. For this style, prepping the night before is key. Wrap sections of hair around a waving wand and spritz with a strong hold hairspray. In the morning, pull your fingers or a wide bristle brush through the lengths of your hair and spray with dry shampoo to hold the bedhead texture.

Dressing Up

Just like SS15, hair accessories are back for 2016. The one difference is that hair teamed with glittery bands and clips shouldn’t be overly tamed. Go for a grittier, messier texture and use the accessories to dress up your look.
