Hair appeal: Top SS16 hairstyles

Easter is now out the way, the clocks have gone forward and summer is just around the corner. Spring provides us with the perfect opportunity to try out a new hairstyle to get us in the mood for the coming SS16 season.

However, with so many stylish options available, it’s hard to decide on a single style which will suit you perfectly.

But what if you don’t have to pick just one hairstyle? There are many hairdo’s currently in fashion this SS16 that suit many different hair types and face shapes, which are quick and easy to do.

Here we take a look at the top hairstyles this season.

Reverse French braid

The reverse French braid is a style that is hot right now and has been seen on celebrities such as Sasha Obama, Kylie Jenner and Hailey Baldwin, to name only a few.

Whether you’ve got long or short locks, the reverse French braid is the perfect practical hair updo for all occasions. This type of braid can be worn in many different ways too. If you’re getting glammed up and heading out, a tight pulled-back braid will look tidy and classy.

Alternatively, go for the half-up-half-down look with a loose braid to one side of your head, with the rest of your hair down and flowing with loose curls. A pair of reverse French braids will also look great during the day and will keep your hair up and out of your way.

Glitter roots

Glitter hair has well and truly made a comeback this season, with celebrities and models rocking this fun 90s look.

Miley Cyrus has been spotted with glitter roots on many occasions, including at the 2016 Met Gala earlier this year, where the star added sparkle to her slicked-back pixie hair do.

A sprinkle of glitter in the average hairdo will really make a statement this season and is perfect for fashionistas who want to create a sassy hippy vibe.

Head accessories

A simple hairstyle can be pushed to a whole new level with an on-trend hair accessory. On this season’s catwalk, Chanel’s collection featured black satin, jewelled and pearl headbands, while Dolce & Gabbana showcased a beautifully designed gold jewelled bow clip.

In line with spring, floral headbands, clips and other hairpieces will not only brighten up your day-time clothing, but will also add red carpet glamour to an evening gown. Our Flower Pattern Hairclip will look fabulous with hair that is swept to one side, with loose waves.

To replicate the Chanel catwalk look, our Fresh Water Pearl Headband will look elegant with loose, low-down bun or ponytail.

Long bob

Kim Kardashian, Katherine McPhee and Naomi Watts have all been killing it with the long bob this season.

For those who don’t have the time to spend ages on their locks, the long bob is the perfect SS16 hairstyle for you, and it’s so easy to maintain. Long bobs look best when they have slight volume to them, with loose curls or waves, which give a sort of bed-head look.

To glam-up your look, a middle patterning will frame your face, along with some bold red lipstick and smokey eye makeup.
