With 2015 literally days away (and we couldn’t be more excited) what better time to do a little reflecting back on the hot (or nah) hair trends of this past year. That and of course gearing up for new styles and trends for 2015. So while we’re waving goodbye to 2014, no worries. We got you covered on what to look forward to in just a few short days. It’s been real 2014 but we are more than ready to see what’s in store for us this new year!
BYE BYE OMBRE!
I don’t know about you, but I can’t say I’m all that upset about saying goodbye to the longest going hair trend that I can remember. Ombre lasted more than a few seasons and EVERYBODY and their mom, cousin, sister and brother were rocking the ombre locks. It’s cool, we did too and we loved it. But for 2015 ombre is out.
So what’s taking the place of our beloved ombre strands? Bold highlights. We mean solid no nonsense color. What’s also hot for 2015 is natural highlights that give a more smooth and gradual change of color than ombre. Both options leave us with hair that looks more natural and has less maintenance. We’re here for both!
HIGH PONYTAIL NO MORE
While I’ve never particularly been the type of girl to wear a high pony tail, it was a major player this year. From slick and sleek buns, to messy top knots, high hair was hot hair. I can appreciate a chic up do as much as the next girl but I am looking forward to a new wave of ponytails in the new year.
Regardless of how you decide to rock it, low ponytails are the new trend for 2015. The lower and longer the better! What’s great about the low ponytail is it is so versatile and we are all about versatility. You can wear the infamous side part, with a side swept bang, or keep it simple and slick. Either way, this style is sure to be a big hit next year!
LESS CURL, MORE WAVE
2014 was truly the year of the curl. Call me biased but this is one style that will never go off trend for me! The more curls the better. Natural, kinky, curling wand, roller set, you name it, and we saw it this year. But if we’re all being honest here…curly hair maintenance is no joke and a change of pace will be nice…but you didn’t hear that from me.
Carefree loose waves are all the rave for 2015 and we love it! These loose waves give such a relaxed vibe all I think of is BEACH when I see them. There’s also no denying the fact that barely there waves require barely any maintenance and that is something to celebrate all on its own.
Saying our tearful farewells to 2014 and all its ombre glory! What trends are you most excited for in the new year?
