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!
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.)
Image 1: Section your hair into two even sections.
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.
Image 3: Repeat image 2 instructions, only with the opposite strand.
Image 4: Continue to repeat the above instructions until you have a fishtail braid!
Image 1: Start this look with any texture of hair.
Image 2: Section about 1/6 of your hair into three strands.
Image 3: Start braiding normally but leave out a strand of hair and place it down along with the rest of your hair. Pick up another strand of hair to replace the hair you dropped.
Image 4: Continue this technique until you finish your braid!

The low Ponytail would have to be my favourite out of the three hairstyles as it is so simple and really appropriate for any situation. For the gym, school, job interview, everyday life or you can add a little something special and turn it into the perfect hairstyle for special events. The best thing about this hairstyle is that it takes seconds to create! Its the perfect hair do when you are in a rush or just having a bad hair day. You really can’t go wrong with the simple low pony!
