Making Waves: The Hottest Hair Trends For Spring

You’ve chosen your make-up personality for spring, so now it’s time to decide how you’ll be styling your hair. We’ve rounded up four glossy micro trends to give you a helping hand – which one will you be sporting this season?

Lived in luxe
It’s time to embrace day old hair. By this, we’re talking natural, loose waves that were styled the day before, giving your hair plenty of texture. Alternatively, loosely braid into a wispy, pulled out plait for hair that embodies an air of French girl charm.

Think ‘English rose who has gone to Glastonbury’. This was the key point of reference at Marchesa, where hair was beautifully curled with a messy edge. Clean centre partings and easy, natural-looking waves gave a ‘lived in’ texture at Christopher Raeburn and hair pro Luke Hersheson was on top form backstage at Jonathan Saunders, creating the ‘flave’ – a flat wave that was styled to look as though it’s been braided overnight.

Sophisticated groupies
Mix a carefree ‘I’m with the band’ unruliness with a dash of sophistication. Adding volume to your tresses is key, the trick is to blowdry your hair with your head upside down, then run your fingers through it from root to tip in a zigzag motion and finish up with a spritz of texturising spray.

Sam McKnight fitted each Tom Ford model with a unkempt, rock’n’roll style wig while at House of Holland, ghd’s global ambassador Adam Reed masterfully created a bed head finish to reflect the idea of a rock musician groupie and her day-to-night ethos.

Hair’s no limits
Creativity and experimentation – these two words may sound a little scary when it comes to your locks, but it’s time to step outside of your comfort zone for spring. Whether it’s accessorising with a big bow, adding colourful streaks of pastel or slicking oil into your hair for a wet look effect, while it may not always feel right for day-to-day, if there’s a time to push the boundaries of beauty, it’s now.

The spring/summer 2015 Sibling girls walked down the catwalk sporting oversized taffeta hair bows.

Prim and polished
Whether it’s worn up or down, the prim and polished look is all about a super sleek finish – and updating simple hair with a truly stellar accessory.

Golden, circular barrettes are quite possibly the most sought-after accessory of the season thanks to Celine’s spring/summer 2015 show, and the Altuzarra girl was given a neat and elegant low bun with a lacquered finish for a polished, glossy effect.
