2016 is in full swing and we’re sharing some of the hottest haircuts for this year.
The Polished Lob. The lob, which is affectionate beauty speak for “long bob,” has been a popular haircut choice for many fashionistas in recent years. However, 2016 welcomes a new spin on the haircut. Not too long and not too short, the lob is the perfect balance between the two lengths and this year’s lob elevates the cut with a very polished and sleek finish, making it a different cut and look altogether. How to achieve? The trick is to incorporate longer layers and blunt edges to the hair. With this cut, you’ll want to use a light spray-on oil to finish the look off to get the high shine and control.

Long Textured Layers. Do you covet your long hair but are itching for a change? Update your ‘do this year by adding in some texture-boosting layers. Adding layers will create movement to your long tresses. To execute, cut framing layers all around the front of your hair. The result will be a versatile hair cut that will look great in a blowout or with beachy waves. Another benefit of this cut? The layers will help add volume to your roots. This is a great for women who are looking to add some fullness to their hair. Need some inspiration?

Statement Bangs. Hair trend experts are predicting bold, blunt bangs as a must-try haircut for 2016. Just think – adding bangs is an easy way to get a brand new look! This year, try a blunter cut that hits the brows. Women with both straight hair and curly hair are encouraged to try this trend without altering their natural hair texture: straight hair would result in a more traditional look while curly hair adds an extra layer of coolness.
