AW16 Hair Trends

One word sums up hair trends for this season: Ease. Ease of styling and maintenance is the key message from those in the know.

You will see a lot of textured bobs such as Taylor Swift’s new do. Other celebrities to have the chop are Miranda Kerr, Kate Hudson, Adele, Emma Watson, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Khloe Kardashian, Gwen Stefani,  and Ellie Goulding to name a few.

Grow-outs will also be a huge trend. We haven’t been quite ready to say goodbye to our short cuts and mid-lengths locks (like the stars above). But make no mistake, 2016 is shaping up to be the year of length, twists and buns and ponytails (let’s face it, what is easier than tying your hair up into a sleek ponytail?).


Ponytails are worn low on the nape of your neck, secured with a bow, embellished clasp or tucked into a chocker (yes, 90’s ladies. Chockers are back this year! So is dark plum/berry lipstick. Goth is back).  The key look is to tuck your hair into a funnel or high neck sweater or coat.

The tuck is also very much on trend. Whether it’s bound by a ribbon or tucked into the back of a shirt, the tuck is the only way to keep your hair out of your face and looking good over winter.

braids and plaits

Plaits are also must have hairstyles. Twisted, braided, halo, french and fishtail – expect to become a professional plaiter!


Hair accessories are making a huge comeback, slick metallics keep the look from looking too prim and proper but if that’s your thing a cluster of flowers will do the trick. Prim and proper ribbons are a pretty and on trend way to tie back a ponytail.

The statement side part will also be a big deal too. Natural colours will also be in huge favour. As we said before, easy and natural hairstyles are in.

So what is out? Ombre colouring, pastel and bright colours, formal hairstyles and sleek straight parted hair.

How will you be wearing your hair this season?
