New hair trends come and go with each season. One season it will be all about loose waves while the next may focus on blunt and heavy cuts. When looking for a new hair trend to try this season, you’re pretty spoilt for choice. If you’re looking to update your hairstyle, take a cue from the following new season hair trends.
1. Braided Updo
Work a new season updo by incorporating some loose braids into your hair. Braid back your fringe for something simple or go all out and create an intricate braided updo at the back (note that you may need a pair of helping hands for this). This look was heavily featured on the Valentino Spring 2012 runway, and more and more celebrities are sporting this look on the red carpet.
2. Ornate Accessories
Work one of the hottest new hair trends by adorning your locks with ornate accessories. From pearl adorned locks at Chanel to stunning star hair pins at Rodarte, designers are a big fan of ornate accessories this season. Whether it’s an embellished headband or ornate hair clips, adding some bling to your locks is one new hair trend that is gaining popularity.
With the rise in popularity of 1960s style, it was only a matter of time before hair became a focus. While it’s not necessarily a new hair trend, you can give this retro inspired hairstyle a more modern treatment. Instead of teasing and styling your hair to helmet-like perfection, leave it a bit messy and secure it in a loose ponytail or bun.
4. Sophisticated Twists
From Gucci to Valentino, the runways have been packed with elegant and sophisticated twist hairstyles. Leave your hair out and twist your fringe back for something a bit bohemian, or work a Jason Wu inspired look and opt for a low twisted bun instead.
5. Pastel Tips
Pastel coloured tips are still enjoying their time in the limelight. It’s become one of the most popular new hair trends, and if you haven’t already tried it then now is the time to give it a go. You don’t have to choose a permanent colour as there are temporary and wash-out options available. Admittedly, this trend is easier achieved on lighter hair.
6. Precision Ponytails
Tell everybody you mean business by tying your hair into a sleek, tight ponytail. It’s a look that has been popular on the runways and can easily be translated into real life. You could part your hair deep to one side and secure low at the neck, or pull hair back and up into a high ponytail. Get the straightening iron and hair product ready for this ‘do!
7. A Statement Headband
Adding a statement headband is a great way to add embellishment to your locks, albeit in a much more minimalist way. Straight, wavy or curly, with a low ponytail or a bun - it will look stylish either way. It’s a simple and effective way to incorporate this new hair trends into your look.
These are just a few new season hair trends worth trying out. Hair accessories are a great quick fix while more dramatic hairstyles are ideal for demanding attention. What new hair trends are you loving right now?
