So, read on, and take your pick of the very best hairstyles that 2016 has to offer! Let’s do this.
Take a look at the latest hairstyles for women you should be rocking
Shag haircuts have taken to the world stage this year, bringing with them a wealth of versatile variations, that can be adapted to suit nearly every face shape! But the cut that has become the most popular (especially among the A-Listers), has to be the textured shag.
All about embracing your hair’s natural texture, this perfectly-undone look can still be worked in a number of different ways – from choppy layers to feathered fringes, you can rock it however you want! Just remember to style your shag with a little of the VO5 Give Me Texture Dry Texturising Spray, for a lovely roughed-up finish.
The choppy lob
The graduated bob just got a whole lot cooler with this fresh, choppier incarnation. Unlike many other women’s hairstyles, this cut feels utterly effortless, and is more about embracing a relaxed aesthetic, rather than aiming for a perfectly pristine blow out.
Kept longer in the front and shorter in the back, the choppy lob (AKA a long bob) also incorporates a few layers through the cut, and can be easily pulled together with a spritz of the Toni&Guy Sea Salt Texturising Spray.
The blunt cut
Tried a layered look but found it’s not quite for you? Then perhaps your style would benefit from an ultra blunt cut, instead? An ideal look for a shoulder-length or mid-length hair, the blunt cut gives your tresses a neat and fashion-forward edge, that is sure to earn you instant style points. So, what are you waiting for? Grab your straighteners and get styling!
Want to refresh your mane for the new season ahead, but don’t want to chop off all your locks? Then you need to add a lovely fringe to your look. Bangs are forever on our style radar, but right now, we happen to think opting for a softer, more laid-back fringe is the way forward! Pair your bangs with some face framing layers for a truly flattering look, and use a curling wand on air dried hair, to style your fringe into shape.
If you struggle to tame your afro at the best of times, yet are reluctant to part with too many of your luscious curls, then a trapezoid ‘fro could be your new BFF! Simply by tapering the bottom parts of your hair and keeping the height at the top, this style gives a lighter and more easy-to-wear option for your natural mane. And our top expert trick? Switch up the position of your parting, for a nifty way to change the appearance of your ‘fro!
While braids are still holding sway over our collective hearts, twisted styles are definitely making a striking impression – not to mention giving a great alternative to plaited strands! Try taking 2 sections of hair from either side of your head, twisting them, and fastening them at the back of your head for a contemporary half-up ‘do. Or, if you have really long locks, weave multiple pieces of hair to make a statement twisted rope. Seriously, these styles take a matter of seconds to create and look totally on trend!
Teased ballerina bun
Love the classic ballerina bun, but after something with a more relaxed vibe? Well, don’t compromise on your favourite style, just give it a bit of a revamp, by teasing your strands before styling! All it takes it to create your usual sleek ponytail, backcombing it for extra volume, and twisting it around the base to form the bun. Then pull a few tendrils of hair free to frame your face, and finish with a spritz of the TRESemmé Extra Hold Hairspray, for a look that holds all day!
And there you have it, the latest hairstyles for women that we’re dying to try! So, did you find the hairdo of your dreams? No? Well, fret not: because there are even more incredible looks to choose from over on our New Hairstyles page.
