2016 hair trend report



2016 Hair Trend Report

Just barely into 2016 the Garnish team wants to make sure you start your year off right with the latest in hair trends! We know all of you hair addicts and trendsetters like your news hot off the press, so here it is …. your 2016 hair trend report!

2016 is the year of the bold haircut. Vintage-inspired, cheekbone length bobs reminiscent of the 1920’s looks like Coco Chanel. These classy vintage styles can be worn in modern ways with a natural wavy texture. Blunt fringy bangs that hit close to the brows are also hot. These bangs can be worn on any texture—straight or curly. Check out our Pinterest board for inspiration.

We will see more natural color in 2016. Color techniques to create dimensions such as balayage, flamboyage, babylights, and color melting will give you these more natural looks. These techniques are used across the board to create customized looks for any hair color. Dark brown and brunettes can have some fun with oil slick hair, pops of vivid color with extensions for non-damaging fun pops of color.

Pastels: Pantone declared 2016’s colors of the year as “Rose Quartz” (light pink) and “Serenity” (light blue/lavender) and with fashion trends comes hair and makeup trends. Expect these two colors to be super COOL! We will also continue to see lavender and silver. The Opal hair color trend seems to be taking off this year too. Cool skin tones can make silver or pale blue look natural. If you are pale with yellow tones, a pastel pink adds a little blush to your skin. Take a peek at our Pastel Hair Pinterest board for more ideas.

Platinum: Platinum hair is super popular this year, but with softer, and unorganized highlights. It’s a little more worn-looking, more natural and sultry. Here’s the latest looks on our Blonde’s Pinterest board.

Bronde: Still a runway and celeb favorite, bronde (blonde/brown) is perfect for blondes who want to go a little darker but as well as for brunettes who want to go a bit lighter. Check out our Bronde Pinterest board.

Blue: Yep, blue is expected to take off in a big way this year. Bright blue, indigo, baby blue and soft pastel blues offer a blue shade for everyone! We’ve created a Blue Hair Pinterest board – so check it out!

So have some fun in 2016 whether you decide to go with a classic Chanel hair style, fringy bangs, or play with your color choosing natural shades, pastels or bright blue. Express yourself in 2016!
