A new year means new hair trends. Cuts, colors and styles are constantly changing as time goes on. Crazy hair colors that were in style in 2015, have been thrown out the window. This year, more natural coloring and texture is in style. Also, short haircuts are making it back as one of the biggest trends of the year.

Lobs, which are known to be a longer bob cut, are going to be found frequently within this year. It’s a classic cut that can be pulled of by any face shape. The Lob is especially a good choice for someone’s hair that is fine or fried from heating tools.

“I love my shorter hair because it’s so much easier to take care of and was a nice change” said Junior, Elizabeth Gardner.

This is an easy way to update your hair when you’re bored of your dull locks. Adding lengthy layers will add more boost and texture to your hair. This hair trend offers multiple ways of styling and can create the look of fullness.

But, 2016 is focused more on embracing your natural hair color. Some are seen to enhance their natural hair color by adding in subtle babylights. Babylights are delicate blonde highlights that are painted freely and only on small strands of hair creating for a slight enhancement. These are meant to give dimension to the hair while still not appearing drastically different. Artificial-looking hair colors are staying 2015.

The last major hair color trend that will be upcoming this year is bronde. It’s not blonde, not brown, but a mixture of the two. The combination of the two most classic shades provides a modern twist on a simple hairstyle. Hairstylists create this color by incorporating the individual’s natural base while adding soft hints of caramel, gold, and honey tones. Popular celebrities such as Ashley Benson, Cara Delevingne and Blake Lively have been recently seen sporting this new trend.
