5 New haircuts to try now

The disconnected crop

The disconnected crop is one of this season’s most directional new haircuts: the perfect choice if you’re looking to add a bold, edgy touch to your signature style. Inspired by the popular men’s haircut of the same name, this fashion-forward, feminine-charged version looks especially striking on oval and heart-shaped faces, as well as those with fine hair (but lots of it). Plus, styling this statement crop is easier than you think.

Simply apply some VO5 Classic Styling Soft Moulding Wax (£2.99*) to damp hair, and blow-dry using a flat brush to help push the hair in the direction you desire. And for a neat, glossy finish, lightly spritz some VO5 Smoothly Does It Tame & Shine Spray (£3.99*) all over.

One of the boldest short new haircuts out there to date, we’re not gonna lie: the curly pixie does call for some courage on your end. But if you feel like you’ve got the confidence to pull it off, we say: go for it!

Currently making waves on the runways and the sidewalks of the world’s most fashionable cities, the only thing about this short crop is that it does require you to have naturally curly hair. But if you’ve been blessed with kinky, curly or coily textures, styling it is pretty much foolproof. Try working in some TRESemmé Make Waves Sculpt & Define Spray Gel from the Runway Collection (£5.50), then scrunch your tresses, twisting your curls with your fingers as you go to help define your curls. Leave to air-dry or blow-dry with a diffuser on the lowest setting for best results.

One of the main advantages of a micro fringe is that it comes in a variety of shapes and sizes, meaning that it can be adapted to suit your personal style and face shape, although it usually works a treat on oval faces. Capturing the rebellious nature of grunge looks from the ’90s, this year’s most trendy fringe has been spotted on many a catwalk, from London to Paris. And while uber short bangs work well with all hair lengths, we recommend going for a classic bob or lob (with some casually tousled textures worked in) for the most modern outcome.

While this one sounds like a throwback hairstyle, with summer festivals, concerts and holidays just on the horizon, the mullet is actually the perfect look to rock right now. Not only is it staging a significant comeback, in the form of an ultra fashionable, rock ‘n’ roll-worthy shag, but it’s also a breeze to style, if you already have soft, natural waves in your hair.

With its short layers that have effortlessly been worked into longer lengths, this hairstyle boasts plenty of movement and that cool nonchalant attitude that perfectly encapsulates sunshine season. We don’t know about you, but we’re sold!

Barely-there layers

If the thought of parting with your long, luscious locks is too much, why not refresh your style by simply adding layers? We know, it doesn’t sound like the most exciting of new haircuts around, but with the likes of Gigi Hadid, and Cara Delevingne currently favouring this timeless, versatile cut, subtle, barely-there layers are certainly making their mark as one of 2016’s most sought-after hairstyles. The bonus? They’ll look great on just about anyone and everyone!
