It is no surprise that hair trends for 2014 were as covetable as ever. From sportsmen to celebrities, everyone dared to be different! Looks like the trend of being chic and minimalist will continue in 2015. To spice up your look and stay in vogue, TIGI presents the 2015 Hair Trend Report
Haircuts: Keep it short
2015 hair trends begin with a parade of stylish and short haircuts that are bolder and sexier. Be it curly, wavy or straight hair, a lot of casual, low maintenance and easily manageable hairstyles will be in vogue. Short and mid-length hair will overshadow long and luscious locks.
TIGI recommends: Style your hair with waxes and gels for a more classic and polished look.
The ‘classic bob’ will never go out of style. With so many variations to wear the look, a bob can fl atter anyone and looks great on women of all ages. The 1920s-inspired bob is a definite showstopper. The dramatically blunt bangs bring attention to the eyes and the slight chin curl enhances the cheek bones.
TIGI recommends: Bed Head Small Talk (Thickifi er, Energizer and Stylizer) and Bed Head Headrush spray.
Classy and sophisticated, ‘Pixie’ cuts are the perfect way to stand out in a crowd. Not all Pixies are created equal; some are divinely feminine, while others are extremely edgy or messy.
TIGI recommends: Bed Head Totally Baked Volumizing Foam and Bed Head Hard to Get Paste.
Lobs, the long bob
The ‘Long bob’ remains one of the most sought after hairstyles for 2015. Neither too short, nor too long, this cut is blunt and uniform without layers. It’s a great transitional hairstyle – short to long hair or vice versa, the choice is yours!
TIGI recommends: S Factor Smoothing Lusterizer Leave-in Conditioner.
The newest look in hair colour for 2015 is an expansion of popular trends from 1990s. Basic and subtle hues of colour are predicted to be in vogue. Honey highlights, ombré and all over deeper colours will dominate the trend. A lot of stunning warm to deeper browns and warm mocha to deep ebony are emerging as the colours of the season to compliment Indian skin tone and eye colour.
TIGI recommends: S Factor True Lasting Colour Hair Oil.
Braids are ‘in’ this season, right from rope braids to knot braids or gothic braids to just braids at the hairline (leaving rest of the hair open). Loose braids with a few hair strands left to contour the face will also be popular along with side swept braids with some accessories.
TIGI recommends: Bed Head Totally Baked Volumizing Foam and Bed Head Superstar Queen For A Day spray.
Ponytails continue to be the most popular pulled up styles for both casual and formal occasions. The versatility of ponytails will give you a chance to create both simple and sophisticated looks – from classic, gelled, sleek, low ponies with side or mid-parting to a messy pony or an absolutely effortlessly styled pony. They will become an integral style statement for the runway.
TIGI recommends: Bed Head Totally Baked Volumizing Foam and S Factor Vivacious Hair Spray, post styling spray.
Short, cropped and sleek 2015 will witness timeless, dynamic and the most sought after, versatile looks for men. A lot of sleek, polished gelled hair, with strong partings will be seen. Men will sport short crops as compared to mid-length or long hair that was a rage in the last season, creating a striking overall impression. The trend of facial hair will continue this season – be it a stubble, moustache or full beard.
TIGI recommends: B For Men Power Play Firm Finish Gel, for a glossy wet look or B For Men Matte Separation Wax, for a non-glossy look.
