I have long, wavy locks which flow down past the middle of my back and every now and then feel the urge to change my hairstyle. Thankfully for me, my hair growth is not too slow so I’m not in fear of being stuck with a not-so-nice haircut for a long while.
But I understand that for girls whose hair takes a long while to grow feel very nervous about trying out new styles. Some wild, boho belles will ask, “What is life without a little risk? Go ahead, try that funky style that looked so great on XYZ model in some magazine”. Well, kudos on that attitude but maybe that’s not the best beauty mantra where hair is involved, at least for us lesser adventurous ones.
But if you are going in for a haircut and looking to get a different look this time, make sure you know which styles are trending this season. You can then choose one which suits your face shape, hair-quality and personality – you’ll then be perfectly turned out with your newly trimmed locks and extremely happy with the way they look.
These are the hairstyles that are super fashionable this season:
If 2014 was all about the Lob (aka long bob), this year has given way to the wavy Baby Bob. The Baby Bob is of length that’s somewhere between the chin and shoulders. Adding a dash of volume and textures, a wavy fall complements such hair length, creating an effortlessly chic look. Go in for a wavy Baby Bob if you want to try something radical. And the best part is, you get the added benefit of summer-friendly locks!
So, you don’t want to chop off your precious locks that took ages to grow? Well, you could keep the length and still get a haircut that is contemporary and uber-stylish. Wait till your hair is very long – almost down to the waist – and then ask your hairstylist to add in as many layers as possible. This will add extra bounce and vibrancy to your glossy mane without much product usage and styling (if you have decent hair quality, that is).
Since 2015 has brought back many 70’s inspired fashion trends, hair couture has also gone slightly retro. A frontal fringe that is slightly shorter in the front with longer strands tapering down at the edges has lately been very popular amongst celebrities. You could get this look too, especially if you have naturally straight hair. But if that is not the case, and your locks have the tendency to “turn” as stylists put it, the side swept fringe would be an equally stunning alternative.
This is for the girls want their hair to be wild and forever messy (in the quirky, out-of-bed-look way, of course). You could get a feather cut, which essentially means your hair will have voluminous, wispy ends that curl out rather than in. Feather cuts on wavy and curly hair have been quite the rage for a while now, and can instantly add to your fabulousness with just a few snips.
Many stylists maintain that this is the season when simply embracing your natural hair texture will be quite the fashion statement. So instead of attempting to alter the general fall and character of your hair growth, you could get a haircut that enhances its natural qualities instead. This shall be suitable for those looking to grow their tresses out – take advantage of this trend and go in for a minimalist trim.
So based on what your fashion mantra is – experimentation, simple and comfortable styling or free-spirited novelty – find the perfect haircut to match it, and voila! Your look for this season is ready!
