Up Your Image: Hottest Hair Trends For Spring 2016
If you haven’t updated your image this spring, the time is now to get in on the hottest hair trends. While winter often equals frumpy fashion for us all, it’s time to get back to being your fantastic self. Sure, shedding the Uggs may help, but the best way to up your image is a little T.L.C. for your flow.
International hair stylist, color expert, and image consultant- Manolo- shares a few of the hottest hair trends this year and how you can incorporate these ideas into your stunning springtime style:
Do you dream of looking like a princess? No Fairy Godmother required, just a vision for the rising trend of charms. Accessories such as tiaras, pins, ribbons, and barrettes are adorning a variety of creative hairstyles this spring. Combine your charms with flamboyant matching jewelry, but lay low on the lipstick with this look. Your charms should pop, so your lips won’t have to.
Twist & Shout
As hair trends this spring slope towards individuality and non-conformity, many women are embracing easy styling techniques. A fast twisted bun sitting nape-level is all the rage, rather than the top knot that’s become passé. This style is fab for a day at the office or jet-setting around the globe on vacation. When you really want to add pizazz your image, try large decorative or oversized hoop earrings in combination with this style.
Go Out With a Bang
Make no mistake about it – bangs are back. Jagged baby bangs, soft side bangs and more have grown in popularity as the winter weather whisked away. Many fashionistas sport faux bangs for an evening or two to transform their look without the hair-cutting commitment. When fresh and flirty is on your agenda, accentuating your hair’s natural beauty with styling and fun bangs could be just the ticket. Here’s another fun fact -bangs accentuate your lips – so a bold lip stain with this look makes this the perfect pair.
That’s a Wrap
As we are reaching peak-hipster, the big, bohemian braids of yesteryear seem to be falling out of style. This spring – tight, streamlined braids created with a bit of functionality in mind are all the rage. We see hard, functional twists that never fall out of place from Dallas to Milan. One popular spring styling trend is peek-a-boo braids that give your locks a little extra texture. Add a matching metallic jeweled look to both your eyes and neck to truly become the Jewel of the Nile.
How Low Can You Go?
Gone are the schoolyard piggy-tails of the past, and now trending are the low, worn close together pigtails seen on the heads of fashionistas all over the world. Combine this primped pigtail look with metal or gothic styling to exude a fashion forward look that’s scary good. Chokers perfectly enhance your new style. Don’t forget to pair it with dark eyeliner and metallic nails to bring the heat.
If you’re looking to embrace your natural texture and just go with the flow, then you’re in luck this spring. One of the hottest trends in hair is individuality and celebrating how your locks lay naturally. We see less traditional haircuts and more out-of-the-blue styling ideas. If you’ve been looking to experiment with new styling judge-free, now is a perfect time to let your creative side shine and own what you want to!
