We recently reported on the growing trend for hair that has texture, from voluminous to curly to wavy. Our main source for this report was a blog by Glamour that also listed several other hair trends worth noting. We agree, and even think that these trends will be around longer than summer 2015 … so, read on for ways you can style your hair to be in the “now”!
Hair trend: Casual braids
“Give your locks a SS15 update in minutes by adding tousled mini plaits to the bottom section of your hair and securing with clear elastics,” says the blog. Recent designers who sent their models down the runway with this look included Vera Wang and Giorgio Armani.
Styling tip: For an evening look, section off the hair into three or four parts from the front of your head and loosely plait the back into an undone up-do.
Hair trend: Ponytails
According to Glamour, the pony is here to stay, with the “low” ponytail the latest incarnation as seen on runways for Giambattista Valli and Gucci. “Wear yours tied loosely at the nape of your neck with a color-matched elastic or slick and glossy for an evening look,” advises the blog.
A variation, such as at the Stella McCartney show, is to add crimped sections throughout for added texture—a great look for festive occasions, the blog points out.
Hair trend: Wet look
Although the severity of the slicked-back up-do, as seen at Alexander McQueen and Alexander Wang, may not flatter everyone, it’s certainly an eye-catching look. So, if you can pull it off—by all means, go for it!
