Haircuts for Summer 2016



Trending Overgrown Bangs


We know what you’re thinking – “bangs aren’t for everyone, plus they require a lot of maintenance!” The best part about these fringe bangs is that you don’t have to suffer through the growing out process & you don’t need to take off too much length! It’s a much more subtle version of the classic bang & it’s not as much of a commitment to the style.

This edgy cut is currently a major trend in the fasion industry. We especially love the bangs to be styled into a less uniform cut so that they fall in a piecey fashion across the forehead.

You can also make this look work whether you have long or short hair, making the look versatile and easy to achieve.

Overgrown Bangs

Blunt Haircut


Blunt bobs are nothing new, but they are bigger & longer than ever.

If you have naturally straight & thick hair, then this cut is the one for you. Unfortunately, those with wavy or coarse hair won’t get quite the same effect.

Styling Tip: Keep your hair straight at the ends! Do not flip the ends under with a round brush while styling – this will defeat the entire purpose of the look & ruin the blunt edge.

Trending Kinky Curls


Finding the right cut for naturally curly and voluminous hair can be a real challenge. The key here is to have your stylist cut your hair when it’s styled naturally & dry. Try asking for shorter layers to give a rounder look to the hair if you have a ton of bounce and volume, as longer layers will weigh the hair down.

The cut gives a fresh & flattering bohemian vibe – we love this look!

Summer Haircut TrendsBABY BANGS

Pairing straight, blunt bangs with wavy hair was once frowned upon – but we’re embracing the textural differences in 2016. If you keep your hair smooth at the roots, the two styles can blend well.

As we mentioned, bangs can be a little high-maintenance, but simply blow out with a round brush to smooth & straighten and leave your hair naturally textured.

Summer Trendy Hairstyles




“Textured shag is the haircut of the year,” says Dove celebrity stylist Mark Townsend. “Unlike shags of the past, this haircut is all about enhancing your texture – no flatirons or blow-dryers required.”

Just ask your stylist to cut your hair dry into heavy layers. If you want to merge two trends in one, opt for some overgrown bangs.

Play around with your natural texture when you style it at home & use your favorite products to help enhance the look.

Alexander McQueen 2016 Braids
Alexander McQueen 2016 – Proving braids don’t have to be clean and neat.


Gorgeous plaits and braids are not new to the fashion scene, however they’re being stepped up an extra notch and they’re everywhere this summer season. Not only are plaits beautifully versatile, but they’re perfect for getting your hair out of  your face and off your neck in a way that will capture anyone’s attention.

Braid Crown Headband

Try something beautifully elegant and sophisticated like a crown braid to pair with an outfit that truly deserves to be the main focus or if you’re wearing bulky jewelry.

What’s better than a classic side braid? They’re easy to do and they look great with everything. Whether you’re going for a hike outdoors or attending an art gallery, the classic side braid is perfect for any occasion.

Vogue Side Braid

Is your style more contemporary? Long and sleek side braids will add a relaxed     street style effect to any outfit. They’re perfect for edging up a simple band tee.

Casual French Braids

Messy styles tend to look the most interesting. Take a note from Alexander Mcqueen and opt for pinning up all of your hair in a messy braided nest. This adds a cool touch to your ensemble and compliments your features.

Chic Silver Headbands


Headbands went out of style somewhere in between the 90’s and early 2000’s. But, now the headband is making it’s way back into the scene as an accessory staple for Spring/Summer 2016.

Go Boho!

Summer is fast approaching, which means hot & humid days and breezy nights. Slap on a head scarf to wear with beachy waves for a bonfire in the sand.

Jeweled Headpiece

Braid Crown

Go with a bejeweled head piece to dress up a simple outfit or follow Chanel’s idea of pairing two complimentary headbands together in one look! Stay one step ahead and merge two trends together – braid a piece of your hair and wrap it around your crown to get the headband effect!

Chic Editorial Fringe Bang


Think Audrey Hephburn a la Breakfast at Tiffany’s, but modernized and edgier.

Admittedly, this look is not for everyone. The severe cut looks best on those with angled jaws and prominent cheek bones. But, if you can pull off this look you’ll have your fair share of compliments.

This is truly the cut in fashion for Spring/Summer 2016, especially in London where mod-chic is always in style.

Short Fringe Bang


Pun Hairstyle Trend

A “pun” is a new fashion term. It mixes a pony tail and bun together in one. The casually-loose style is so easy to do yourself. All you need is a hair tie – just throw it up quick and you’re done.
