Introducing the latest hairstyle trends for 2016

Update your style with the freshest hairstyles for 2016! This year it's all about healthy sleek and movement styles, with unrivalled shine. Try out the trends yourself as we walk you through our top 5 inspirational looks.


The love affair with straight hair was back with a vengeance this season. With catwalk shows abuzz with straight and sleek locks that showcase healthy tresses.

Taking inspiration from pared down, Scandinavian style this look is all about effortless cool, nonchalance and no-fuss styling.

With added root volume, and centre straight partings the look was all about shiny, carefree hair. Shoulder length, face framing layers add a modern twist on the look. Touchability is key to this style, so keep your hair in peak condition and don't weigh it down with heavy products.


Full on supermodel hair, this look is all about seductive shine and sexy liveliness. More defined than soft waves, the hair is waved in the same direction to create rippling movement and extra shine as light bounces off the curls.

With a strong centre part, the look is playful, pretty and easy to run your fingers through. The perfect complementing touch to romantic Spring fashion this look was seen all over the catwalks. Creating this look is easier than you think and with just a few top tips it’s a look you can keep in your arsenal for years to come.


Building on the healthy hair sleek trend, soft waves transform the perfect straight into the ultimate all occasion style.

This look is all about super-pretty, natural waves. Starting at eye-level, the waves are loose and soft and emphasise the natural movement of the hair. Waves are defined but free, structured but undone for an uncomplicated pretty look. Perfect on all hair lengths, this look is about adding soft texture and manageable volume.


Root-boosted and loose, this voluminous blow dry is all about remastering 80’s style glamour with a new contemporary twist. The focus is on flowing texture, to show off strong and lustrous hair.

Cutting edge new lightweight styling products, and a salon strength hairdryer are key to achieving this gravity defying look that perfectly showcases fresh and lusty locks. Preparation provides long-lasting volume so get your ceramic brushes and volumising products at the ready.


Inspired by the ocean, this trend revolves around lustrous, glistening waves on mid to long length hair.

Glamorous, defined and opulent, these waves reflect the biggest shine as deep shimmering waves capture the light. Charismatic and alluring, this look is not for the faint hearted as it’s a guaranteed head turner designed to put all eyes on you.
