Hairstyle Trends 2015

We see the return of the crimper, the side-parting is back, and low ponytails are cool once again!

The hottest hair trends for 2015 are throwbacks from different decades gone by.

We see the return of the crimper, the side-parting is back, and low ponytails are cool once again!

It is also worth knowing that minimalist make-up is in, so there’s never been a better time to flaunt your natural beauty.

So get ready to ditch the foundation and work nude lips as you keep your face natural and let your hair be the showstopper!

Wow with Windblown Braids

braidsWe aren’t after neat, perfect princess-style plaits. Think dishevelled, loose, tousled twists, a look channelled on the catwalk by the likes of Baja East and Michael Kors.

To achieve a similar style, prep hair with volumiser for a thick texture. Alternatively, generous amounts of dry shampoo will provide that messy hair feel.

Next, pull dry hair into a low loose bun, pull strands out and then weave messily. Finish with spray to hold in place.

To give this trend a twist, make like Vera Wang and plait two braids either side of your head amongst a mane of loose curls.

Work that Wet Look!

Deepika Wet Hair LookThis bold look, which is a throwback from the nineties, dominated the Spring/Summer 2015 catwalks.

Versace used lacquer in combed-back manes to achieve a wet-look that is so in for 2015.

This classic old-school style is sophisticated and super-simple to re-create. Style mousse into wet roots, and tousle using spray.

Gelled sections can be worked over the forehead a la Jacquemus to create a side fringe.

Keep it Classy with Chic Chignons

chic chignonJapanese-inspired buns are in this year.

Calvin Klein’s models worked messy chignons, adding a tough vibe to their classically minimal signature style.

Pull hair back into a tight high ponytail and twist into a bun.

Pull wispy pieces out to complete a look both edgy and effortless.

Step Back in Time with a Sassy Side Parting

side partingSweep your hair across your forehead to form a side parting. It’s another simple but chic look straight from the nineties that is easy to replicate.

It is a classic style that has now re-emerged as a stylish beauty look for next season, illustrated by the likes of Roksanda Ilincic.

To achieve this look, blow-dry your hair and brush into a deep side parting on the left. Using a sweeping movement, style the hair across to the right.

Finish by tucking the hair behind the ears for a minimalist look that is bang-on trend.

Stun with Sleek, Low Ponytails

ponytailMake like Oscar de la Renta and Jason Wu and try out this new trend for a modern twist on the old classic.

After blow-drying hair, make a side parting and gather into a low ponytail.

Combining a chic low pony with the side parting means you’ll be super up-to-date with your look.

Rather than gel, try using hairspray after blow-drying to avoid a greasy feel. The result is a super-sleek style that is both girly and sophisticated.

Charm with a Choppy Bob

choppy bobOn the runway, Marc Jacobs’ wigs were cut into choppy bobs with thick bangs (again, make-up free!)

This boyish look is a nod to the mid-seventies New York City underground punk scene.

It’s edgy and retro, and something a little bit different for those who aren’t afraid to get creative with their locks.

Perfect Pastel Streaks

pastel streaksPastel hair colours are another hot trend for 2015.

Commonly seen on lighter coloured hair, pastel colours can work equally as well on darker hair.

Badgley Mischka weaved in blue, pink and green extensions for a funky fashionable edge.

It’s youthful, cool, and will turn heads for all the right reasons.

Gravity-Defying Top-Knots

Priyanka Top KnotIn 2014, men took to the the man bun and ran with it.

With the men muscling the women out of the top-knot realm, women are reclaiming it.

For this look, brush your hair and pull into a high pony.

Then, gently twist your hair, and then tie into a tight bun.

Keep your hair in place with a couple of bobby pins. You will need more for thicker and heavier hair.

The ‘Faux-Fringe’ Effect

side swept bangA fringe can be a great way to make a style statement.

And the side swept bangs synonymous with the seventies have reappeared for Spring/Summer 2015.

For this style, brush hair across your forehead for a chic look that gives you temporary bangs.

Perfect if you want to try out a fringe without fully committing to the change!

Return of the Crimper!

crimperStella McCartney has brought back another golden oldie: crimped locks.

In yesteryear, the full head of hair would be crimped, making for a full-bodied volumised mane of flowing locks.

However, in this modern makeover of the eighties hair trend, the idea is not to overdo it.

Just crimp a few random sections before smoothing into a low ponytail.

So, by combining minimal make-up with show-stopping hair, you can channel next season’s best beauty looks as flaunted by catwalk models.

Whether you fancy sweeping your locks into a side parting, keeping it classic with a low ponytail or donning dishevelled braids, these hair trends are retro, effortless, and edgy, all at the same time.
