Cool Hair Trends For 2016 1 1

Now that we’re fully immersed into 2016, it’s time to be on the lookout for the latest trends and styles in beauty and fashion (if you haven’t already)!  Our team has been scouring the net looking for some of 2016’s hottest hair trends and we found this video from a segment on Good Morning America from December 31, 2015 that we had to share!  During the segment, celebrity stylist Takisha Sturdivant-Drew shares some of the popular hairstyles that she thinks will be trending in the New Year, who has been seen wearing them, and how someone can achieve this style.  Takisha has worked with a number of celebrities, including Carrie Washington.  Check out the hot hair trends that she shared, below!

1. Messy WavesCool Hair Trends For 2016 | Messy Waves

  • What are Messy Waves? The messy wave gives natural body and movement to any hairstyle. Giving hair a more “I wake up like this” look.
  • Who’s been seen wearing Messy Waves? Carrie Washington, Jessica Beal, and Jessica Alba have all be seen sporting the messy waves look!
  • How to achieve the Messy Waves style? First, you have to start with a foundation of a good shampoo and conditioner, which should help add shine to your hair.  Takisha then takes a big curling iron, wraps the hair around the curling iron very loosely, and then she uses a flatiron to make the hair very messy.

2. The Lob

  • What is the Lob? Simply put, the Lob is a long Bob style.
  • Who’s been seen wearing the Lob? Carrie Washington, Kate Middleton, and Taylor Swift have all jumped on the Lob bandwagon at one point in time or another.
  • How to achieve the Lob style? For those with long hair, you can take the hair and tease it with a really good teasing brush (perhaps brushopolis), and this will give the hair volume.  You can then take large bobby pins and pin the hair in places letting some of the hair fall in the front and on the side.

3. Braids

Cool Hair Trends For 2016 | Braided Hairstyles

  • What’s happening with braids? Part of the appeal with braids is that they add a ‘natural’ look, which Takisha reports will be a trend to be on the lookout for in 2016.
  • Who’s been seen wearing these braid styles? Carrie Washington (Crown Braids), Emma Stone, and Hayden Panettiere have all been seen rocking braids.
  • How to achieve a textured braid? Takisha refers to this as a “2 in 1,” using a crown braid that goes all the way around someone’s head and then adding texture to the rest of their hair by using a curling iron and fingering it out.  It’s a combo of styles she’s recently seen on Viola Davis and Lupita Nyong’o.
