Spring/ Summer 2015 Hair Color Trends
Hair color is the primary detail that matters a lot in the creation of a successful look and a spectacular hairstyle trend. In the new season, lots of importance is given to natural hair tones, while all those stylish hair highlights and lowlights retreat for a while. Let your natural hair color shine bright this season, whether it’s a jet-black tone, warm auburn shade or any type of brown and blonde hair color, as they are all super-trendy this spring. The fans of the blonde hair colors can opt for honey ash blonde, strawberry blonde, platinum blonde, golden blonde or any other blonde hair tone, while those loving the mixture of the blonde with brown accents can try the stylish reddish golden brown, light ash brown, chestnut brown hues and other variations of the classic brown hair tone. To add warmth to your overall appearance try your favorite shade of the auburn and red hair tones, while black hair color alternatives are the best ways of looking mysterious and classy, if they surely match your skin tone and eye color. If you are guided by the common rules of choosing the most flattering hair color for you, the result is always going to be something ultra-natural and trendy, which is what your aim for this new year should be. Natural hair colors were especially well praised at the shows of Emilio Pucci, Chloe, Celine, Chanel, Valentino, Mary Katrantzou, Topshop Unique, Marc Jacobs, Vera Wang, Givenchy and others. Still, if you want to look extravagant you can experiment with slight pastel hair highlights and hair chalks, as spotted at Badgley Mishcka and Maxime Simoens.
Spring/ Summer 2015 Hairstyle Trend 1: Center Hair Parting
Whether it’s about some stylish ‘do or loose hair, primary importance is given to the central hair parting, which made appearance at almost each and every show unveiled for the new season. Except for the cute side parted hair spotted at Tom Ford, Topshop Unique, Ralph Lauren, Jil Sander and a couple of more names, as well as some totally backcombed looks, we mostly witnessed classy and sleek center hair parting at the shows of Isabel Marant, Valentino, Chloe, Dries Van Noten, Dolce & Gabbana, Tanya Taylor, Emilio Pucci and others.
Spring/ Summer 2015 Hairstyle Trend 2: Side-Swept Hair
In line with the uber-trendy center hair parting, the 2015 trendy hairstyles also include side-swept hair looks, since after all the center hair parting isn’t a universally flattering option for every face shape and style. Sometimes being uber-sleek and classy and at times looking careless and cool, side-swept hair was the stylish say of such fashion shows as Tod’s, Max Mara, Philipp Plein, Badgley Mischka, Aquilano Rimondi, Chanel, Jason Wu, Fendi, Jenny Packham and others.
Spring/ Summer 2015 Hairstyle Trend 3: Naturally Textured Wavy and Curly Loose Hair
Casually loose hair is the simplest and the most impeccable way of making a statement in the new season. From the slightly tousled and careless voluminous tresses as we saw it at Badgley Mischka and Jenny Packham to the naturally wavy hair of Misha NooNoo and the romantic waves and curls of Roberto Cavalli, Emilio Pucci, Mary Katrantzou, Anna Sui, Diane von Furstenberg, Vera Wang and others, as well as the overly textured natural medium-length hair of Topshop Unique and slightly elongated bobs of Marc Jacobs and Tom Ford, beautiful curly and wavy loose hairstyles for spring 2015 are super varied.
Spring/ Summer 2015 Hairstyle Trend 4: Straight and Sleek Loose Hair
Being one of the most timeless hairstyle trends, straight and sleek hair is always there among the top hairstyles for each season, be it fall or spring. Straight hair is never far from mind, however, what makes it unique and fresh every time is the right choice of the new hair colors, as well as some small details that matter, including the trendy hair parting option or some small hair accessories. Sleek and straight hair was the thing at the spring shows of BCBG Max Azria, where we saw a center parted option, Victoria Beckham, where a preference was given to the side-swept straight hair, Versus Versace, where the classic straight hair was spiced up with lots of texture for the modern feel, Orla Kiely, where we especially loved the slight wet accents applied to the front part of the crown. Christian Dior, Rodarte and Ralph Lauren also kept it straight, sleek and loose.
Spring/ Summer 2015 Hairstyle Trend 5: Half-Up Half-Down Hairstyles
Being the intermediate variant between loose hair and stylish updos, half-up half-down hairstyles appeal to those looking for the easiest ways of concealing a bad hair day. These effortless and versatile hairstyles make a huge comeback for spring 2015, having made an appearance at the spring shows of Celine, where we fell in love with those minimalist metallic hair accessories, Just Cavalli, which demonstrated the functionality of bobby pins, Thakoon, which mixed this trend with that of straight hair and wet effects, Moschino, which showed us what a real Barbie’s hair is to look like, Miu Miu, where we adored that grungy feel of the feminine wet-look half-up hairstyles, Zac Posen, Valentino, Tibi and others. Especially interesting was the half-up hair version of Chrisopher Lemaire, at the show of which we saw a seventies inspired asymmetric wet-look ‘do.
Spring/ Summer 2015 Hairstyle Trend 6: All Forms of Ponytails
When it comes to the most versatile and coolest spring/ summer 2015 hairstyles, ponytail comes the first on the list. This uber-cute and pretty hairdo has been reinvented, revitalized and refreshed for spring, having been adjusted the way to meet the modern standards and the style demands of even the most capricious fashionisers. Whether you have long, medium-length or short tresses long enough to be put into a stylish ponytail, this hairdo is the perfect thing you can consider in the upcoming spring for looking effortless and chic on a daily basis, as well as for making a big style statement on special events. High or low, that can be an uber-sleek and glossy ponytail like the ones we spotted at Alexander Wang, Roland Mouret, Gucci, Trussardi, Vionnet, Oscar de la Renta and Opening Ceremony. Another mainstream ponytail trend is the slightly textured and careless look we saw at Fendi, Giambattista Valli, Jason Wu and Ann Yee. We also loved the geometrical structure of the ponytail spotted at Cushnie et Ochs, the softly crimped ponytails of Stella McCartney, the textured high ponytail of Hood by Air, the creative low ponytail with a V-shaped parting of Giles, and the wet effect ponytails of Damir Doma and Custo Barcelona, the semi-wet bubble ponytails of Barbara Casaola, and the effortless chic disheveled ponytail of Talbot Runhof.
Spring/ Summer 2015 Hairstyle Trend 7: Crimped Hair
Coming from the deep of the nineties, crimped hair is again uber trendy this spring thanks to the stunning show of Stella McCartney, where stylist Eugene Souleiman added so much texture to the low ponytails of the models by crimping the hair. Emanuel Ungaro presented the seventies inspired version of crimped hair, giving that iconic “waffle” texture to the loose hair of the models. To achieve this look, you either need a hair crimper or just tightly braid your hair and then pass the plaits through the hair straightener a few times. Unravel the braids and enjoy this chic and minimalist hairstyle!
Spring/ Summer 2015 Hairstyle Trend 8: Wet Effect Hair
That super-effortless and fresh out-of-the-shower hairstyle is powerful enough to maintain its strong positions among the best hairstyle trends of each season. Wet effect hair is trendy this spring too, and we have seen multiple creative interpretations of the trend at various fashion shows. Thus, at Alexander McQueen the models wore imaginative folded wet-look chignons, while at Balmain Sam McKnight bet on maximalism. Giambattista Valli presented the perfect union of texture with wet effect, while at Versace the models looked more minimalist with neatly backcombed wet hair. Wet hair was also the say at Cedric Charlier, Miu Miu, Holly Fulton, Thakoon, Anthony Vaccarello and others.
Spring/ Summer 2015 Hairstyle Trend 9: Stylish Short Hairstyles, Faux or Real
And who said that the spring 2015 hairstyle trends are only about long tresses? Exceptionally cool variations of short hairdos were also spotted on the runway, targeting the bold and self-confident crowd of fashionisers, who know how to make a powerful fashion statement without having long hair. We have stylish wet-look bob hairstyles with a sporty air from David Koma, raw and edgy textured bobs with bangs from Marc Jacobs, shaggy rock ‘n’ roll inspired bobs from Tom Ford, center-parted sleek and straight short hair from Hugo Boss, and casual side-parted short bobs from Topshop Unique.
On the other hand, if you want to experiment with short hairdos without having your hair chopped, you can go for those creative faux short hairstyles that also make a big trend for the new season. This way, you can try the futuristic manga-inspired sleek updo with those spiky bangs from Kenzo for the pixie effect, or the loose faux bob of Issey Miyake with sleek finishes on the crown.
Spring/ Summer 2015 Hairstyle Trend 10: Modern Beehive
For that charming retro vibe reminiscent of Brigitte Bardot’s style, think beehive hairstyles this spring, especially when they are available in a myriad of variations. Thus, if looking super-sleek and elegant is your aim you can go for the beehive updo of Corrie Nielsen, however, if channeling your inner Barbie is what you want to do, try recreating the half-up beehive hairstyle spotted as Moschino.
Spring/ Summer 2015 Hairstyle Trend 11: Elegant Updo Hairstyles
We can hardly do without those overly classy updo hairstyles, especially when there is some important event scheduled ahead. The spring/ summer 2015 hairstyle trends feature a vast variety of classic updo hairstyles, ranging from the sleek looks to slightly undone and relaxed options for the romantic feel. We love the bow-shaped neat low chignons of Altuzarra, the flower-embellished low chignons of Dolce & Gabbana, the soft rolls and chignons of Christophe Guillarme, the jewel-adorned updo of Bottega Veneta, the futuristic folded chignon of Alexander McQueen, Carolina Herrera’s sleek ‘do, the windswept look of Emporio Armani, the side-swept loose elegant chignons of Carmen Marc Valvo and the feather-embellished updos of Undercover. The edgy spiked bun of Ann Demeulemeester is just one options for those, looking for something outworldly and different.
Spring/ Summer 2015 Hairstyle Trend 12: Buns, Knots and Twists
Alongside those perfect updo hairstyles, we also have some slightly more casual and effortless looks for those days, when you want to look cute and laidback. Think those relaxed top knots and buns of Nanette Lepore, Phillip Lim, Lanvin, Calvin Klein, Reed Krakoff, Sportmax, the rebellious four-knotted ‘do of Marc by Marc Jacobs and that of Antonio Marras, the punky twisted top knots of Vivienne Westwood Red Label, the knotted updo of Aganovich, and others.
Spring/ Summer 2015 Hairstyle Trend 13: Grunge Braids
Braids go grungy this spring, looking rebellious and bold and targeting the self-confident girls, who love to stand out with their daring style. For inspiration, you can look to the wet-effect dramatic braided ‘do of Masha Ma, Marissa Webb’s braided pompadour, Maria Ke Fisherman’s intricate braids, Gyunel’s mini braided updo, the edgy braided bun of Bibhu Mohapatra, Giamba’s artistic braid used to mark the center parting of the loose hair, the tight crownrows of Jean Paul Gaultier and Giorgio Armani. In the latter case, Roberta Bellazzi used hair extensions in lighter tones than the models’ hair for styling the braids to make the plaits look more expressive and interesting.
Spring/ Summer 2015 Hairstyle Trend 14: All the Other Forms of Braided Hairstyles
It’s not only the artsy and grungy braids that make a statement in the new season, as we have a whole line of braided hairstyles for spring 2015 for any taste and personality. For the ultimate elegant outcome you can consider the braided low buns of Tadashi Shoji, while for radiating a high dose of modern allure you can opt for Laura Biagiotti’s and Suno’s creative cage herringbone braids, Peter Som’s simplistic braids and Donna Karan’s interesting rope braids. We simply can’t but adore the boho chic and casual undone braids of Mara Hoffman and Michael Kors. No less creative are the colorful fishtail braids of Marco de Vincenzo, DKNY’s sporty chic braids with a wet effect, Tome’s minimalist fishtail braids, Vera Wang’s messy plaits worn with textured loose hair, Ermanno Scervino’s braid-embellished updo, the disheveled braids of Baja East, and Aigner’s fishtail braided updo.
Spring/ Summer 2015 Hairstyle Trend 15: Cute Bangs
While the majority of trendy spring 2015 hairstyles spotted on the runway lacked bangs and fringes, there were surely also styles featuring them for adding that sweet vibe to the models’ faces. 2015 hairstyles with bangs range from those perfect classics to ultra-modern looks. Especially noteworthy were the bangs seen at John Galliano, the raw looks of Marc Jacobs, the shaggy Debbie Harry inspired side-swept bangs of Tom Ford, the usper-sleek straight bangs of Givenchy, the bowl-cut bangs of Haider Ackermann and the futuristic bangs of Kenzo.
With their rich diversity and perfect functionality, the spring/ summer 2015 hairstyle trends and trendy hair colors come to be the most ideal source of inspiration for those, looking for ways of revitalizing their looks and adding lots of charisma to their appearances. Make sure to be guided by your own unique style and lovely features when deciding on which of these styles to sport for this or that occasion!
