Hairstyles For 2016
We’re beating the January blues by taking a look ahead to the exciting hairstyles we’ll be sporting come spring. We’ve scoured the catwalks of London, Paris, New York and Milan to bring you next season’s biggest hair trends… which will you choose?
Alexander McQueen SS16, Paris
Whenever there’s a trend for tousled, undone hairstyles we get very excited! Relaxed, effortless styles are so easy to create and maintain which means you can spend more time enjoying the warmer months. From Alexander McQueen to Bottega Veneta, gently teased updos were the style of choice for spring/ summer 2016. Think low buns and ponytails with loose strands and flyaways around the face for a windswept effect. This trend works for both the office (try a messy bun) and special occasions. Try incorporating braids and twists to enhance the ethereal vibe. Get practising now with our step-by-step guide to creating a knotted updo – ideal for the upcoming wedding season.
PPQ SS16, London
If you plan on heading to the beach this summer then this is the trend for you. Low maintenance, slicked back hairstyles were seen on the Kenzo and DSquared2 runaways. Wear the wet look from root to tip or rock a dual textured style (as favoured at PPQ) by wetting the roots but leaving the ends dry. See our how-to guide for perfecting the look here.
JW Anderson SS16, London
If polished and perfectly preened is more your thing, take inspiration from JW Anderson and embrace a super-smooth, scraped back ponytail. There’s no room for volume in this style and it’s all about simple shapes and detailing with a precise finish. Find out how to turn a mid-length ponytail into a chic rope braid using our how to guide.
