It's the end of the year and we are eager to look back in review on the hottest hairstyles of 2016. Ready, set, go!
Jennifer Lawrence shows it best with her side part and texturized bob, that ever-so effortlessly frames her mischievous smile. As one of the hottest hairstyles of 2016 and one we got very acquainted with in our salons, we learned that the right bob can do wonders for almost any woman.
Braids, braids, braids
It's not like braids ever really left the world of fashionable hairstyles, but they certainly did retreat for a while over the past few years. But, as witnessed over 2016, whether fishtail braids, cornrows, or waterfall braids, braids, braids, braids made a huge comeback and quickly became one of the hottest hairstyle of 2016.
Bangs made a comeback this year, which makes one thing a for-sure fact: even the (once) worst haircuts can make a transformation into something fashionable again! We had a lot of our clientele asking for bangs, which can do wonders for framing the face, creating a softer or more bold appearance (depending on the style of bang) and making your eyes pop.
Messy Top Bun
As far as we can tell, the "effortless" look isn't going anywhere fast, which was reinforced by another hot hair trend of 2016: the messy top bun. We saw plenty of half up-do's with that effortless, just rolled out of bed look, while the sleek top bun with a subtle messy flair was all the rave as well.
50 Shades of Grey
Whether inspired by the movie or not, this year also brought us a very unique, minimalistic trend in hair color: from grey, to silver, to white. Silver strands are no longer an outcome of age, but one of choice and sleek sophistication. At our salons, we managed to go "50 shades of grey" in 2016 like you never would have imagined!
