20 Ways You’ll Be Wearing Your Hair This Spring | Hottest Hair Trends for Spring 2016
Beside all the spring fashion trends spotted on the runways, there’s something else we have to look over really close: the hair trends for spring 2016.
Yes, the runways were filled with numerous hairstyles that set the trends for the upcoming season and we’ve sorted them all out for you, exactly how the designers revealed them to us.
But before we dig deeper into this spring’s hairstyles, here are the main rules of the following season:
- natural looks
- serious length
Even if there are some very hip short cuts that are trending right now, the main focus in on really long hair. It’s back, reinvented and cooler than ever!
And if you want to lead the beauty trends and your face features allow it, then you should know that the hairstyle of spring 2016 is the wavy lob.
1. Boho Waves
The Boho Waves were spotted on almost every runway, loosened waves that were barely there and that reminded us of a bohemian period.
Inspiration: Chanel, Valentino, Emilio Pucci, Tory Burch
2. Sleek Blowouts
The voluminous and playful curls that were once an iconic feature of sex symbol Brigitte Bardot are back and come alive along with the new season!
Inspiration: Diane von Furstenberg, Naeem Khan, Matthew Williamson, Jenny Packham
I honestly never thought I’d see this trend revive, but here it is: the gelled hair that makes you look like you just got out of the water was all over the runways. Style it up properly and you’re going to look as sophisticated as ever.
Inspiration: Calvin Klein, Marni, Alexander Wang, Proenza Schouler
4. Long Ponytails
Ponytails were never really out, but this year they were reinvented. Now, the long tails go lower. Actually, the lower the better. And to understand just how far that goes, check out the Rag&Bone show where they were almost falling out.
Inspiration: Gucci, Ralph Lauren, Stella McCartney, Cushnie et Ochs
5. Grungy Ponies
And if the sleek ponytails are not really your style, don’t worry because this season the tails come in two forms: long&sleek or grungy&messy.
6. Playful Accessories
For this season, the accessories move to your hair. The designers used all sort of playful accessories – flowers, jewels, feathers, carnations – and turned the simplest hairstyles into works of art.
Inspiration: Dolce&Gabbana, Fendi, Celine, Bottega Veneta
7. Braids and Twists
There were all kinds of braids spotted on the runways – from twisted rope braids, to cornrowed buns and all the way to messy plaits.
Inspiration: Dona Karan, Giorgio Armani, Vera Wang, Michael Kors
8. Skin Show Off
As I was telling you before, the natural nude makeup is the hottest beauty trend this spring, therefore a hairstyle to support it was mandatory. So, swept back up-dos that reveal your fresh make-up is more than encouraged this season.
Inspiration: Calvin Klein, Balmain
9. Creative Buns
The big buns aren’t going anywhere, only this season they are upgraded and come into more creative shapes – soft hearts, Japanese-inspired and so on.
Inspiration: Altuzarra, Carolina Herrera, Edun, Erin Fetherston
10. Pixie Cuts
Apparently Scarlett Johansson’s sultry cropped hairdo inspired many designers because we’ve seen a lot of tough looks featuring pixie cuts on the runways.
Inspiration: Marni, Mary Katrantzou, Creatures of the Wind
This spring is all about fresh vibes, so naturally the up-dos are a must this season as they let your skin breathe and honestly, it will spear you a lot of time.
Inspiration: Marc by Marc Jacobs, Calvin Klein Collection, Giles
12. Curly Afros
As I was telling you before, this year is all about natural looks, so women are encouraged to show off their natural hair textures.
Therefore, here come the crazy curly Afros!
13. Short Cuts
Yes, the bob and the lob rule this spring’s hair trends, so whether you go for a medium-length or a cropped style, it’s your call. But the most fashionable one remains the ruffled petite cut as I was saying in the beginning, other way known as the wavy lob.
Inspiration: Givenchy, Vera Wang, Burberry Prorsum, Chloe
Don’t worry about the wind ruining your hair anymore because this spring is all about textures – backcombed up-dos, flying waves, crimped sections.
Inspiration: Stella McCartney, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Chanel
Here’s one for the good girls, too – the half up and half down hairstyle with center partings.
16. Centre Partings
Centre partings were everywhere on the runways, both in down-dos and ponytails.
Inspiration: Dona Karan, Dolce&Gabbana, Christian Dior, Christopher Kane
17. Off-centre Partings
And if your face features don’t allow a centre part, there’s no need to worry. Once again, this season is all about natural beauty, so if your head aligns with a side parting, then so be it.
Inspiration: Gucci, Ralph Lauren, Fendi
18. Full Fringes
If the clean full fringes ruled 2014, this year it’s time to wave them goodbye and welcome the piecey choppy bangs!
Inspiration: Givenchy, Tom Ford, Fendi
19. Structural Chops
The geometric cuts are going to have a major comeback this year, but of course, reinvented. Forget about the straight strands that normally go with these styles, this year, the geometric cuts combine with the wavy hair!
20. Straight Long Bob
And as much as the wavy hair ruled the runways, the straight long bob is still trending this spring, but just give it a little more volume to go!
Inspiration: Olivia Palermo‘s long bob
