Spring 2015 Hair Trends
If your indecision prevented you from having your hair lopped off last season to achieve the then-trendiest bob or lob, you can rejoice at the hottest styles seen on the spring runways, all of which require lengthy tresses. The looks ranged from relaxed boho waves to severely elegant up-dos, so there’s something for everyone and every occasion.
Big buns were prominently featured on the catwalks. And these were not your typical buns. A Japanese influence could be seen at Carolina Herrera Described as “origami” or “sumo” buns, the latter refers the stylized top knot worn by sumo wrestlers. not the size of the buns. And Dolce and Gabana featured rose-embellished buns inspired by the Spanish rule of Sicily.
Who doesn’t like braids? They’re easy to create and can be dressed up or down. Braids can be part of an intricate up-do, or they can be loose and casually chic. This season, you can take your pick.
This spring is all about high-tailing it, at least in regards to one’s hair. Ponytails enjoyed an elevated status, as evidenced by the high, sleek looks on display at Oscar de Renta and J Mendel.
For a casual, boho-glam look, undo your braids and brush out your hair to get perfectly relaxed waves — at least, that’s how I intend to do it. Personally, I love this ‘do. It’s easy to create and works with a multitude of outfits. The bohemian wave ruled the runways at Valentino, Alberta Ferretti, Tory Burch and Marchesa. I must say, I’m quite happy that I resisted the urge to chop off my hair last season!
