Hair styles are forever changing. A year ago, who would’ve thought that we’d be seeing trends like granny gray and bright violet? Trends like these are what makes working with hair so fun and exciting for our stylists. As 2015 comes to an end, we’re looking forward to seeing what the new year might bring. We don’t have a crystal ball, but we predict that these 5 hair trends will be hot in 2016:

  1. Textured Cuts. As seen by our client below, a textured cut provides volume, giving her hair a little extra oomph! This chic textured bob was achieved by adding some layers that framed the client’s face, instead of hiding it. textured_bob-300x300
  2. Contouring. The ombre took the hair world by storm in 2015, but this year we predict we’ll be seeing a softer balayage that will focus more on framing the face. Contouring is soft and subtle but can completely transform hair, especially when paired with a long layered cut like below. contouring-300x298
  3. Pixie Cuts. Everyone is loving this short, low maintenance style. If you’re really looking to transform your look, there’s no better way to go. Need proof? Check out the transformation below. pixiecut-300x297
  4. Fringe. Yes ladies, bangs are back! Whether you’re sweeping them to the side or going for a blunt look, like our client below, bangs can completely transform your look. And don’t worry, if you get bored easily, just take a tip from the queen of beauty herself, Kim Kardashian, who told us in her recent Instagram takeover Fringe-298x300
  5. Long Bobs. A shoulder-length cut doesn’t have to be boring, adding a taper and some texture can take a look from drab to fab. Lobs have been seen this year on celebrities like Taylor Swift, Rosie Huntington-Whitely and Lauren Conrad. They’ve also been spotted all over Philadelphia on our gorgeous clients! long-bobs-300x175
