1. Shag Hairstyles

This year, I haven’t come across a shag hairstyle I didn’t like. The shag is the perfect look for the woman that’s into the undone hair trend with an edge. All it takes is a good wash and go routine, sea salt spray and some hair gel and you’re golden! Don’t believe me? Check out our shag hairstyle tutorial.

5. Rose Gold Hair

Amongst the many (and I mean many) hair color and hairstyle trends that were popular in 2016, the rose gold hair trend is my favorite. A cross between pink and blonde, this hue made it easier for those who just can’t decide if they want pale reddish purple hair or full on light colored hair. Here are some of the rose gold hair ideas we all loved here at All Things Hair.
