Tired of sporting the same old ‘do each day? Changing your hairstyle can give you a whole new look, leaving you feeling confident enough to take on anything. Loose and lofty, straight up or with a twist, it’s time to update your locks with the latest winter hairstyles for 2016.
The High Pony
Whether sleek and sophisticated, tousled and untamed or beautifully braided, this is the season to take your ponytail to new heights. The high pony has been featured atop celebs like Rihanna, Beyoncé and Bella Hadid, and even made bouncy waves on the spring/summer 2016 runways. If you need a little assistance achieving this style, check out this nifty YouTube tutorial.
Sick of tirelessly nurturing your long locks? Then why not join the bob brigade? A classic cut that will forever stand the test of time, the bob is short, sharp and chic – and on trend for 2016. Make the bob your own by styling it in a few different ways; whip out the curling iron for touchable waves and that special je ne sais quoi – go retro with pin curls – or keep it sleek by blow-drying it pin straight.
Bold and blunt to swift and sultry or fiercely framed, there are so many bang on styles to try this season (see what we did there?). If you have naturally straight, medium density hair, then opt for a blunt cut. For angular or square faces, add softness and texture with a straight across fringe.
And if bangs aren’t your thing? Curtain bangs are perfect for those face shapes that fear a solid, straight across look.
Meet ‘The Rachel’ haircut of 2016. Think shaggy, choppy, or feathered layers that give an edgier nod to the iconic 1990s’ hairstyle. A fresh way to spruce up shoulder length hair, or for adding extra oomph to lifeless locks, textured layers are a universally flattering style that require very little fussing.
How to achieve this look? Product is your friend. Try a sea salt spray for straight strands, or mouse for hair with more bend. For au naturale waves, execute the ‘braid and sleep’ technique – you won’t be disappointed.
Fight the frizz by adding a shine serum to your ends.
