More Hairstyles To Try In 2015

With so many different trends you can almost try out something new everyday. Mixing and matching things are the fun part about fashion. As your trying out different styles of clothes, why not try a different style of hair as well. Here are some more popular hair trends to try in 2015.

1.) School Girl Hair
The school girl hair is sweet and simple. It can be done with any hair type or texture. Simple do a side part to the side of your head that you prefer, and bobby pin your hair to that side at about eyebrow level. Make sure its tight so it doesn't move and the look is complete.

2.) Retro Waves.
Retros waves is one of the more difficult styles to master. It is great for any formal event like a wedding. It involves using rollers on the top of your head for volume and curling the rest of your head in alternating directions. After the hair is cooled, hairspray it. Then lightly brush out and smooth hair to desired shape. Apply more hairspray. This is a look that is best to be left to the professionals.

3.) Messy Ballerina Bun.
Another really easy to do hairstyle. Start by pulling your hair back into a slicked ponytail. Lightly tease sections of your hair (if not already curly or wavy) to give some added texture. Wrap into a bun, its okay if its kind of messy and secure it with bobby pins or a hair tie.

4.) Bombshell Blow-out.
Another pretty easy to do style (as long as you can work a curling iron). Start by adding mousse to wet hair. Ruff dry your hair so it is about 70-80% dry. Pull out a big curling iron (about 2 inches around) and curl the front sections of your hair. After run your fingers threw it for a messy waved look.

5.) Fishtail Bun.
The fishtail bun is easy if you can fishtail braid hair. Start by putting your hair in a low ponytail. Split your hair into 2 sections, and grab small sections from each side alternating all the way down the hair strand. They should cross over and make a continuous v shape all the way down. Wrap around into a bun and secure with hair pins and bobby pins. Finish with your favorite hairspray.

6.) Sexy Pigtails.
Going back to the school girl hair, this is another classic school girl look. Start with second day curled or air dried hair (the texture makes it sexier). Create a messy center part and split your hair in two. Use hair bands to secure each section. Add a bit of hairspray to finish the look. 

7.) Weaved Ponytail.
This one is a bit harder to do since you can't fully see your head. Start by parting out the top section, back section and sides of your hair. Split the top section of your hair into two, and cross over each other so the go into the side sections of your hair.  Cross over the side sections of your hair so they each go into the opposite side of the back section. Place into a ponytail and complete. This works best with straight hair, so straighten your hair before trying it out.

8.) Modern Crimps.
This is one of our stylists FAVORITE looks of the year. You start by picking out random sections of your hair, (choose between 3-6 depending on how thick your hair is) and using a small crimper, crimp each section of your hair. This adds a fun texture to any up-do or casual style. 

9.) Looped Through Bun.
This is a easy style, that is great for any women on the go. First pick a cotton headband and apply. Pull your hair back into a ponytail. Apply a stretchy headband over top so it creates a bun with the ponytail.

10.) Half-Up.
Not just half-up ponytail, this is  clip that loops the hair through it. When you pull your hair half up, pull less of it into the ponytail and leave more of it out. It makes your hair look thicker.

Hair Trends To Try In 2015

Your hair is one of the first things people notice about you. It is a reflection of who you are and what style you are trying to portray. If you wear the same hairstyle every day, it may be time to change it up a bit. Try some of these hot hair trends for 2015, and see if you might like a few.

1.) The Ponytail.
We aren't talking the I am going to the gym so I just pulled my hair back ponytail. We are talking sexy ponytails. Try a twist on the high pony by curling your hair with a 1 1/2 inch curling iron, then teasing your roots slightly using your favorite hair spray.  Smooth over and lightly brush out some of the curl so it's not tight. Then pull back into a pony. Lightly tease for some added texture and volume. You can also try the wavy ponytail. Instead of teasing your hair, pull it into a low pony. Brush out the curl until you have a soft wave. Try one of these looks for work or a hot date.

2.) The Messy Bun.
The messy bun is staple for most 14-25 year old females. This is the I just rolled out of bed and didn't have time to do my hair look. But yet it still looks super cute. You can dress it up for a date or work, or wear it to the gym. To do, start with air dried hair. Your natural hair is perfect for this look. I flip my head upside down and use a hair tye to wrap around your hair moving it in random directions. Secure with a few bobby pins. Nothing is perfect about this look, so the messier the better.

3. )Scarf Braids.
Braiding your hair with a scarf is simple and cute. Start by putting the scarf on as a head band and tying it at the nape of your neck. Then section your hair into 3 sections including the scarf in one of them. Braid your hair. End it by tying a knot with the scarf at the end of the braid.

4.)Slicked Back Hair/Bangs.
A few years ago the poof was really in. It was wear you took the front top section of your hair, teased it and pinned it to your head. Well this is the same section of the hair, and all you are going to do is pull your hair back, spray it with hair spray, and bobby pin it or use a clear hair tye to secure it in place.

5.) A New Twist On A French Twist.
A classic french twist is completely smoothed to the head. This is a fun french twist. It is done the same basic way, except you are going to keep it lose, messy, and a little unfinished looking. If you do not have naturally curly or wavy hair, give your hair a quick curl before doing it.

6.) Ombre Highlights.
Instead of traditional drastic ombre like going from dark to light, the ombre highlight is to add a little dimension to your current color. From the mid shaft to the ends have your stylist add some highlights that are a shade or two lighter then your current hair. It will add the little something extra your color needs. And there is little to no upkeep.

7.) Air Dried Waves.
Straight hair looks high maintenance.  For a more relaxed look, apply a volumizing spray or mousse, and blow dry your hair 75% of the way upside down. Then you can let the rest air dry or pin it into low buns and blow dry the rest of the way.

8.) All Natural Curls.
For those of you who have curly hair, this one is all you. Apply a anti-frizz styling cream to damp hair, then either let air dry or use a blow dry to dry your hair and your fingers to separate the curls until they are soft and airy.

9.) Gamine Cut.
A classic hairstyle, that is great for a thinner face. It starts short on the back and sides, but the top is longer to give the hair more volume. If you are into classic looks good about keeping up with your regular haircuts, then this style is one to give a try.

10.) Low Buns.
Low buns are great for a bridal look, or even every day. Pull your hair back, leaving a 1 inch section on either side, so its slick and even to a low ponytail.  Roll the hair underneath and pin to your head. Pull the sections you left out back, and loop them around as you desire then pin. Finish with hairspray.

11.) The Undone Updo.
The undone updo is a simple way to put your hair in an updo. You start by pulling it back into a ponytail so its secure but slightly lose. Then twist and pin your hair in the desire fashion you want. You can add braids or twists going back the the ponytail if you would like as well.

12.) The Bubble Braid.
The bubble braid is so easy to do, and is a right off the runway look. Start by putting your hair in a ponytail and securing with a hair tye. Next add another one about 1-2 inches down from the 1st one and once it is tight gently push up the hair tye with one hand while the other holds the rest of the hair. This creates the bubble effect. Continue down the rest of the ponytail. 

13.) Nude Headband.
Find a cotton headband that is about 2 inches thick and closely resembles your hair color. Slide it on to your head so it goes onto your hair line covering it and the tops of your ears. You can leave the rest of your hair down, pull it into a bun or put it in a ponytail.
