10 Women's Hairstyles That Are Ruling 2016

Center-Part Braids

Center-part braids are awesome. They’re unique, stylish, and just a little bit boho, so you can style your hair this way for a wide variety of events. This hairstyle began gaining popularity after quite a few celebrities, including Kate Bosworth, wore this style to music festivals and other summer events, and we expect it to be even more widespread this upcoming summer.

Au Naturel

Easy, casual hairstyles are growing increasingly popular, and this one is the easiest of them all. Many designers, including Isabel Marant and Tommy Hilfiger, have begun embracing the natural look on the runway, and you can too. Simply wash and dry your hair, avoiding any product. It’s that simple!

Tight Braids

Loose, bohemian-inspired braids have ruled the braid world for some years now, but it’s time for them to move over in favor of something a little more sophisticated: tight braids. This elegant hairstyle is perfect for everything from coffee with your best friend to your workplace holiday party!

Balayage

Balayage is a soft highlight technique that started becoming a thing towards the end of last year, but I really think 2016 is the year of balayage. Ombre is officially out, so balayage is its natural replacement. Balayage gives off a much more casual vibe, and it requires significantly less maintenance than your typical cut and color, so this trend is really going to take off within the next few months.

Low, Twisted Buns

Top knots used to be all the rage, but they’re slowly but surely being replaced by low, twisted top knots. Designers like Tory Burch and Jason Wu recently had their models show off this elegant style on the runway, and the great thing about this look is that it is fairly easy to replicate at home, even if you’re not a professional stylist.

Crimped Locks

If you think crimped locks are a thing of the past, you are mistaken. This style is making a huge comeback because it creates a wonderfully different hair texture. Countless designers and celebrities have been seen wearing this look recently, so if you packed your old crimper away, it’s time to pull it back out again!

Faux Bangs

Getting bangs for real is a huge commitment because if you decide you don’t like them, it’ll take at least a year to grow them out. As a result, clip-in bangs are becoming more popular by the day. They’re inexpensive, and designers like Rebecca Minkoff and Alexander Wang are showing them off on the runway, so you have nothing to lose by giving them a try.

Low Pigtails

We generally think of pigtails as a little girl’s hairstyle, but this hairstyle can actually be quite elegant, as demonstrated by Miu Miu and Chanel at their spring runway shows. This style is simple to execute, and it’s a lot easier on your scalp than a ponytail, so you won’t end up with the dreaded headache.

Wrapped Hair

Hair ties are the most popular option for pulling your hair back when you’re on the treadmill or trying to focus on the book you’re reading, but a classier option is to wrap your hair with a ribbon or a small piece of cloth. Oscar de la Renta and Lanvin flawlessly rocked this hairstyle on the runway, and you should too!

Accessories

Remember how much fun it was to dress up your hair with your favorite barrettes and headbands when you were 8 years old? Well, now you can relive that joy, because the hair accessories trend is coming back! Saint Laurent, Rodarte, and more are rocking this look on the runway. Feel free to break out your tiaras, barrettes, hair pins, or whatever else you want to use.
