The key to hair trends this year is to keep it simple, don’t overstyle your hair or try anything too over-the-top. Instead, go for simple dos that are easy to create and maintain. If you have wavy hair, all you need to do is wash it and scrunch in some mousse. For those of you with straight hair, go for a loose plait. Curly-haired ladies have a whole host of options from a big, textured look to a French braid. Here are some trends that will continue to be big in 2015.

Expert Laura Meredith from Hairtrade.com said: “Styles come and go and some of the top trends for 2015 we’ve certainly seen before and no doubt will see countless times again.

“Plaits and braids have been making a comeback over the last couple of years and show no signs of slowing down. Whether it’s a fishtail plait, a braided bun or a French plait, then you’re bang on trend.

“2015 is all about fuss free hair and having fun with your locks. Over styled hair is a definite no – instead it’s about embracing and enhancing your look and bringing out you inner child.”

Braids and Plaits

The catwalks have been full of braided and plaited styles for Spring / Summer 2015. This on trend look is so versatile. You could wear your hair in a striking fishtail plait, a stylish French braid or a messy side plait. Or you could braid a small section of hair. The style can be elegant and classy, or loose and messy – it all depends on the look you want to create.

Crimping

Crimping was massive in the 80s and is set for a revival in 2015. Styles are much more refined with small sections of the hair crimped and tied into a ponytail or low bun. If you crimp sparingly then you can’t go wrong.

Wet look hair

A short, sassy style with a wet slicked back look is the style to go for if you have cropped hair. For longer locks, try tumbling wet look waves or wearing your hair sleek over the crown with loose, bouncy hair at the back.

Low ponytails

Stylish low ponytails have been popular in all the major catwalk shows. Keep your ponytail low and sleek and you’ll be bang on trend.

Boho waves

The boho look is going to be massive once again for 2015. This is all about fuss free hair, embracing your natural style and loving it. So forget hours with the straighteners, instead let those curls tumble. If you have shorter hair and want to recreate this look, try hair extensions – beautiful waves without the pain of growing out your hair.

Buns

Everyone loves a bun – whether it’s a loose, just got out of bed bun or a sleek, highly styled ballerina bun, they’re big news for 2015. They’re elegant, perfect for day or night and great if you want a relaxed, chilled look for the beach.
