2016 Hair Style Trends

 

 

 

 

This year's trends for haircuts and color offer something for everyone, from layered textured bobs to show-stopping volume.  Here are the top hair style trends for 2016!

 

BOBS, LOBS AND WOBS

The bob is destined to be the most popular hair style for 2016, whether it's the wavy bob (aka "wob"), the long bob (or "lob") or the classic bob.  One of the reasons that women of all ages love this particular haircut is that it's so versatile--you can wear it tousled and textured, stick straight, flipped out, wavy, tightly coiled, curled under and so much more.  It's a cut that can be easily tailored to work with different facial shapes, too--another reason for its popularity.


BANGS

Bangs are also trending this year.  Not only are they versatile (varying from windswept side bangs to jagged fringe), but they can camouflage facial features that you may want to downplay.  Bangs work wonders for minimizing tall foreheads, hiding forehead wrinkles, and balancing out angles by having a softening effect.

 

 

NATURAL HUES

This year's color trends all nod toward the natural.  Artificial hues and ombre are quickly losing ground, and more natural looking highlights and hair color are now the sought after looks.  Think beachy balayage highlights and soft, sun-kissed tones applied on the ends and around the face.....as if the sun's rays had gently lightened your locks over time.

 

 

 

THE VICTORIA'S SECRET WAVE

Soft, glamorous, volume-rich waves, reminiscent of Victoria's Secret models are another huge hair style trend for 2016.  This is an easy look to achieve if you have thick hair with a lot of length, but even hair that lacks body can still get this effect with the help of a high quality mousse, blow dryer, and curling iron. 

 

 

 

 

BRAIDS AND PONYTAILS

Still a favorite this year are braids and ponytails, especially peek-a-boo braids added as subtle texture and low braided ponytails that begin at the base of the neck.  

Both braids and ponytails are easy ways to turn lack luster strands into hair that makes a statement.
