Spring is the time for reinvention. And nowhere has this been more evident than on the runways from Paris to LA. As a Dallas commercial makeup artist, a new season means not only warmer weather, but also a fresh approach to hair and beauty. As hair and makeup artists, we’ve seen the birth of new cuts and colors, as well as the welcome return of a few classic style staples. From buzzcuts to blowouts, let’s take a look at the hottest hair trends for 2016.
A CUT ABOVE
Buzzcuts were all the rage at Yves Saint Laurent, Gucci and Versace. While we’d only
recommend this look for editorial or commercial shoots, why not consider going for a fringe?
Bangs of all lengths and textures are making a comeback. There’s the wispy, barely-there fringe like Emma Watson to full and choppy bangs like Victoria’s Secret angel Behati Prinsloo. If you’re really looking for something bold, a blunt fringe may be the way to go. Model-of-the-moment Mica Arganaraz has become known for her trademark textured curly fringe which just goes to show that bangs come in all shapes and sizes.
If you have curly hair like the model, try Unite Boing Curling Cream to keep your curls
defined and the frizz at bay.
The textured lob
The “lob” or long bob was the look of 2015. Print advertisements and photoshoots galore featured this hot style trend for its versatility and great style. This year, the cut is more angled and textured. Ask your hairstylist for a cut that is A-line in shape – shorter in the back and longer towards the front. Complete the look with soft bangs and textured layers throughout – perfect for any special event. The great thing about this cut is that it grows out naturally, meaning less visits to the salon. Your bangs will need a monthly trim though to maintain the shape at the front. To style and give a bit of textured start off with mousse on wet hair and finish with some sort of great, lightweight, water based pomade.
