Hair Color Trends 2016
- Pale pink and blue accents – Color gurus Pantone just anointed not one but two colors of the year – Serenity and Rose Quartz, playful blue and pink hues that are anything but babyish. It’s time for mermaid hair to move over and make way for light, whimsical hues like these. Gigi Hadid and Miranda Lambert are among the celeb adoptees of this look.
- Babylights – This highlights style goes super micro for max impact. For multidimensional color and highlights that look like you were born with them, ask for babylights.
- Ronze – shorthand for copper red plus bronze brown – is the hottest red hue of 2016. Women with cool complexions or dark skin can try blue-based ronzes, while those with fairer complexions should pick a pink or yellowish ronze hue. All-over color works best for ronze styles.
Hair Style Trends 2016
- Texturized lob – In 2016, expect to see the lob or long bob embrace texture. Short, shoulder-length ‘dos with a little bit of chop and shag, texturized lobs are low maintenance and major fun for all textures of hair.
- Modern pixie – Asymmetry is out for 2016, with the new short hair trend being a modern pixie cut that keeps hair framing the face an even length. Varying lengths around the nape of the neck, ears, and top allow you to personalize this short cut while showing serious It Girl glam.
- Angled curls – It’s all about geometry for curly hair. A wedge cut or stacked lob keeps it short in the back and playfully long up front, showing off your curls. A trapezoid shape has more weight on the top and tapers toward the bottom, giving you lots of length to play with if you like to shake up your look. Take celeb inspiration from Solange Knowles.
- Long fringe – Bangs are still front and center for 2016, although fashion-forward ladies tend to wear their bangs long and parted. Think of them more like face framing layers than eyebrow-skimming heavyweights. A stylist can help you transition from fringe-heavy to long fringe looks, avoiding that awkward grown out period.
