Whether embellished, slicked back, pulled high and tight or worn down in loose waves, the hairstyles on the spring runways all had one thing in common: serious length. Start growing out your bobs and lobs because long hair is back and it’s cooler than ever. Here, our favorite trends from the Spring 2015 shows.
Braids ‘in the mix’ of best hairstyles for 2015
The popularity of braids will continue and judging by the imaginative new braid styles that delight us each new season, we can look forward to some fascinating new braiding techniques and styles.
There will be a resurgence of vintage braid styles – and there’s a centuries’ old tradition of braids to choose from! I expect to see messy 1960’s Brigitte Bardot side-plaits along with some sleek and elegant formal braids for evening wear.
Scarves, ribbons and old lace
The styles we’ve seen range from cute French braids on side-swept styles to punk/Goth romantic creations. Dolce & Gabbana and Givenchy models wore fantastic braids and braids intertwined with silk scarves, ribbons, rags and bits of old lace are finally being featured by the big fashion brands.
Top Tip: Try making a thin French head plait from forehead to crown instead of a parting for a totally unique take on the braided detail!
The constantly evolving pony-tail
The pony-tail will keep its position as one of the best hairstyles for 2015, as it can be infinitely varied to suit every face shape and personal style!
For a stunning evening pony-tail, copy the extra-long bubble ponytail or take a leaf out of Victoria Beckham’s posh look-book and opt for a simple centre parting, with a straight pony-tail at the nape.
For a casual, grungy look there are messy ponies from ‘Rag & Bone’ and we loved the funky idea of creating different sections of texture and colour in a long pony-tail.
For instance, take a piece of fabric and fasten it to a section of hair by winding a piece of fine cord or string around them both. Then crimp another section, and twist some beads around a third section until you have a totally unique eclectic pony-tail!
