What Hair Styles and Colours are in for 2012?

The summer is now upon us for many countries. The shackles of hats and warm winter clothing have been cast off letting our glorious hair flow freely for the world to see! For many it’s a time to try something different with their hair, a new style or colour perhaps, but what styles and colours are trendning in 2012? Well, here’s a bit of inspiration to get you thinking…

A 2012 Hair Style For Men

The Brit/Indie Cut For Men ~ A safe option for men who have decided to cut their hair for sale or simply want a shorter, cooler look for the summer. There is a lot of leeway in this hair style in terms of length and it’s simple to maintain. The top needs to be longer than the sides so it can hug the forehead slightly, but the cut can easily be achieved by chopping a few layers into the hair.

2012 Hair Styles for Women

The Pixie Look ~ For those people looking to sell their hair and maybe grab a new style at the same time, this classic revival of Audrey Hepburns 1960s Pixie Style is perfect. Emma Watson, Halle Berry, Kate Winslet and many more have all adorned this style recently and looked fantastic. Face shape is important to consider if going for this style, being better suited to oval shaped faces as oppose to round or long.

Ombre Style ~ Many celebrities have been gracing the red carpet with an ombre style. This is a two-toned colour, half brown and half blonde, that works particularly well for brunnettes. Lily Aldridge, Kristen Wiig, Lauren Conrad, Rachel Bilson have all sported this particular look recently and it won’t be going away any time soon…

The French Twist ~ If your looking for adventurous holiday style that allows you to sun bathe in the heat without the hassle of long hair, the sexy French twist could be just what you’re looking for. Sophia-Loren iconized the look in the Dolce & Gabbana 2012 runway show. For photos and a how-to guide visit: http://www.fashionising.com/trends/b–hair-how-to-dolce-gabbana-french-twist-13850.html

The Bouncy Blow-Dry Look ~ For a relaxed yet neat style that doesn’t try to do too much, this is a winner. Working best for medium to longer lengths, the trick is maximising the wavy bounce effect and matching the contours of the hair with your face shape.
