Spring/Summer 2015 Hair Trends
There’s a chill in the air, the days are getting shorter and people have started saying the ‘C’ word, (Christmas that is) it can only mean one thing – autumn’s here. But don’t despair, there’s light at the end of the tunnel, the fashion week catwalks have been full of gorgeous Spring/Summer 2015 hair trends for us to look forward to.
Long, straight hair
Long, straight hair was all over the catwalks of Milan, New York and London. But don’t dust off your straighteners just yet, this new straight is nothing like the flat as a pancake, poker straight styles we wore at the start of the GHD revolution. It’s a more natural, windswept do, it moves and has lots of volume, body and swing, and we love it.
Plaits and braids
Plaits and braids of every description were seen at Michael Kors, Armani and Donna Karan, to name just a few. From sleek, classic single braids worn from the nape of the neck, disheveled, pulled apart fishtails, random plaited sections and chunky cornrows, nothing was off limits.
We particularly like Vera Wang’s messy nape of the neck plaits, with the rest of the hair worn textured and loose.
Pony tails were given an edgier, dual texture look at Alexander Wang, Julien Macdonald and Jason Wu, sleek and tidy pulled to the nape of the neck, then textured from the band down.
We love how easy it is to replicate this look just by adding a little dusting powder to the ends of the hair.
Gucci went for a more natural, simple look by scraping the hair back, using hands instead of a brush.
Partings were strong and worn in every imaginable way – centre, deep side and slanted but they all had one thing in common – they made a bold statement. Worn long or short, straight or wavy, tied back or loose, partings were everywhere.
Waves were unfussy and easy to achieve, gone are the curly blow dries and tight, hard waves, think more Made in Chelsea society girl than TOWIE. Hair should be blow dried to smooth out before loosely tonging and brushing, or loosely braided/plaited whilst damp then combed with fingers when dry. But don’t throw out your straighteners just yet, a quick way to create this new, kinky wave is to plait dry hair then work your straightener down the lengths, holding each section for around 3 seconds. Leave the plaits to cool while the wave sets then gently brush out.
If you suffer from very fine/thin hair why not transform your hair with a small amount of our natural hair extensions, making it more manageable, thicker and versatile, giving you the freedom to wear your hair in ways you’d only dreamed of.
