2015 Hair Trends

In 2014, we saw long bobs, braids, slick back ponytails and loose waves take the hair scene by storm. The question is how many of these sought after hair trends from 2014 are going to stick around through 2015 and more importantly what new and creative hairstyles will we be seeing everywhere in 2015.

During fashion week 2015, there were several hairstyles that reappeared in many different designer shows.

My favourite hairstyles as seen on the runways of the spring 2015 fashion week were braids,the  middle part and the low pony tail.

Over the past few years braids have come from being a cute hairstyle for primary school girls, to a super chic and sophisticated option for many occasions. There are so many different braids to choose from including the most simple three strand braid, four strand broad, fishtail braid, water fall braid, rope braid and dutch braid.

Want to learn how to do a dutch braid, fishtail braid and waterfall braid?– Follow these step by step instructions below!

 

Dutch Braid

Image 1: Comb out your hair

Image 2: Section off about 1/5 of your hair to start the braid. ( You can section more or less just depending on what you want your dutch braid to look like.)

Image 3: Section your original section into the strands

Image 4: Start by crossing one strand under the other, and continue this with all of the strands until you have your braid. ( Unlike the normal three strand braid, where you cross the strands over each other, make sure you cross the strands under each other to achieve the dutch braid.)

Fishtail Braid

Image 2: Take a small strand of hair from one of the two sections and cross it over to the other section and add it to that section.

Waterfall Braid

Image 4: Continue this technique until you finish your braid!

Tips for achieving the perfect Braid 
 Tip 1: Braids are easier to create when your hair is dirty or second day hair.
Tip 2: If you have dead straight hair, it is a good idea to use a curler or texturising spray before braiding because curlier hair holds braids better.
Tip 3: Pull the strands of your braid to create a more loose and effortless style.
