Trends aren’t all about clothes. Hair colors, cuts, textures and styles go in and out of fashion much faster than we can actually grow our locks. Looking to update your mane this season? Read on for our top tips on how to get your tresses on trend.
When Prada presents an entire runway full of girls in ponytails, you stand up and pay attention. Anything Miuccia touches turns to gold, so naturally we’re now seeing ponytails swinging side to side everywhere we look. Keep your tresses wavy for an easy natural look or straighten for a slicker evening look. Whether you choose to wear yours loose and low on the nape of your neck, or scraped up tight on top of your head, you’ll be bang on trend.
Thanks to the likes of Zooey Deschanel and Alexa Chung, we’ve always loved fringes – whether they be side-swept or thick and blunt. This season, just about anyone who matters is sporting some sort of bangs – even the Duchess of Cambridge! Taking the seventies as inspiration, a long choppy fringe that occasionally gets in your eyes is the must-have style this season, ala Kate Moss and Behati Prinsloo.
It seems that all of this season’s trends are reminiscent of our school days – basically just get your old yearbooks out for inspiration! If ponytails aren’t for you, take influence from the likes of Sienna Miller and Jennifer Lawrence and perfect the plait. We love a low-slung messy style, intricate French plaits or neat pigtails, but our personal favourite way to rock braids is wrapping them across your head like Heidi!
Everyone wants to look like Cara, right? Her brown-meets-blonde caramel hair hue is the must-have colour this season, putting an end to the blonde or brunette debate (at least for the time being). Bronde looks more elegant than harsh platinum blonde, yet softer and warmer than dark brown, proving to be the perfect blend. And when Gigi Hadid jumps on board, you have two of the coolest girls in the world sporting this season’s key hair color.
Get ahead for next spring by stocking up on hair accessories. Set to be a huge trend, anything goes next season, from full-on tiaras to crystal embellished hair slides or flowers pinned on the side of the head. Go all out with oversized designs, including big bows, sparkling slides and velvet Alice bands to perfect the look.
