The Year In Hair

Our pick of the best styles of the year

This year saw some pretty hot hairstyles being created, trends using balayage and ombre colouring techniques flooded the high street and the Duchess of Cambridge's Chelsea Blowdrys continued to inspire the British fash pack.

The summer saw braids galore with halo plaiting hitting all the hair headlines. Blow, bun, braid & boufant bars popped up across the country and fringes became the most wanted hairstyle accessory, with Kim Kardashian and Emma Watson's fringed styles leading the way.

The Blunt Bob


A hot looking bob, incorporating the blunt parted fringe, the balayage colouring technique and warm coppery tones. Regis pull off the trend combination perfectly.It works the day to night look, season to season and can be easily grown out to work your next hair fix.


The Side Part


Rich and strong in colour, deeply classic and feminine in style and including the prominent side part that showcases a leading hair trend.This low maintenance hairstyle by Mark Woolley at Electric hits all the key focuses of the year in hair.


Big Blow Dry


Copper tones, big blowdrys with barely there bangs, Errol Douglas got this glamour look hair perfect as the look of Clothes Show Live.


Layered Side Sweep


Stunning clean blonde hair colour, healthy tresses and a side swept fringe that can be factored into any Chelsea Blow - this classic hairstyle by the team at Royston Blythe, Shrewsbury continues to walk out of every salon door.


The Big Braid


The big braid! It was a year when braiding was taken to another level. This hairstyle by Manchester's Colour Room gets the volume and halo mix just right!


Ponytail Glamour


This year ponytails walked out of the playground and into the salons. Trevor Sorbie inspires us all with this twisted to the left, fringe sweeping, big bouffant pony that has the ultimate red carpet appeal. Not so long ago the perfect pony was only seen at high school but last year set a new precedent as the pony became the perfect companion for any long haired girl.
