So, what are the hot trends for men and women in 2015?

Messy Waves and Curls

2015 is the year for messy bedhead hair!  We can now just roll out of bed, run our hands through our hair (and a bit of texturising product) and we’re ready for whatever the day has in store!  Of course, for your hairstyle to look great you will need a superb haircut, which is where we come in!

It’s time to work with your hair’s natural texture and volume with a hairstyle that looks casual, natural and a bit messy.  If you have naturally curly hair, enjoy the volume that comes with wavy hair and  embrace your curls.

Short Hair Cuts with a Difference

We’ve mentioned ‘bedhead hair’ and this is the look you should be trying to achieve with your short hair style too.  Ask for a blunt short bob and then use the right hair products to give it some texture and movement.  We love Coco Rocha’s short blunt bob which is softened by being less ‘styled’ and with a less blunt fringe  Cameron Diaz opts for a blunt bob but softens it with a longer 1970s-style fringe, while Michelle Williams really suits her short pixie cut.

1970s-style Feathered Fringes

Feathered fringes are making a comeback in 2015 as we take our inspiration from the 1970s.  A seventies-inspired fringe which is cut shorter in the front and tapered at the sides looks effortlessly casual.  Channel the gorgeousness of Brigitte Bardot during her heyday for an on-trend hairstyle in 2015.

Casual Braids & Plaits

Braids and plaits will continue to be popular during 2015.  It seems we’re all having more fun with our hair so push the boundaries when it comes to your hair.  Try plaits on top of plaits by wrapping two sections around a central plait, then pull out some strands for a tousled look.  Or opt for a low side parting and plait your hair to one side with a basic plait or fishtail.  You could even try winding your plait into a bun and pinning it low at the nape of your neck.  The same goes for ponytails.  Why not use several bands and create one or more loops?


2015 Hair Colour Trends

Innovations in hair colouring techniques means we can create beautiful hair colours which have depth and shine.  Gone are the days when hair colour would leave your hair looking dry and brittle.  We even have ammonia-free hair colour called Nectaya which gives stunning results.

Blondes, red-heads and brunettes will always have a place in fashion so just ask one of our stylists to help find a shade that will suit you.  Some of our stylists are Goldwell Master Colour Experts who are trained to the highest standards in hair colour – so if you’re looking for a hair colour with a difference, they can help.

During 2015 we predict men and women will become bolder when it comes to hair colour.  We’ll see a lot more fashion techniques such as ‘babylights’ where the ends of dark hair are given a sun-kissed look, and the popular ‘ombre’ which gives a more dramatic lightening effect.  Ombre hair colour can be carried out in any just about hair colour you wish and we can colour the tips of your hair or several inches.

Men’s Hair Trends for 2015

Men are paying more attention to their hair than ever before so don’t get stuck in a rut with your hairstyle. Change it up every now and then by creating subtle changes to your style.  Try a low side parting or run some texturising products through your hair for a cool, messed-up look.  Quiffs remain firm favourites for 2015 and can be worn slicked back and smart or casual and a bit messy – depending on the look you want to achieve.

Long hair for men is making a comeback but it has to be neat, tidy and clean.  Don’t shy away from tying your hair back either if you want a more professional look but opt for a top knot.  Beards continue to divide opinion but there is no doubt that a well maintained beard is a strong trend for 2015.

2015 is also the time to try a new hair colour.   Adding the right hair colour can add depth and interest to your hairstyle.  Talk to your ZIGZAG hair colour technician about what we can do for you.
