2014 has been a year of great hair. We’ve seen harsher colour trends soften and simple hairstyles become more creative. We take a look at some of our favourite trends this year.
Pioneered by model Alexa Chung, the universally flattering ‘long bob’ cut has been trending for a few seasons now and has been one of our most requested haircuts this year. If you want to try this trend, it’s not too late – it’s one that will stick around for a few more seasons to come. Your Maurice Meade stylist will shape the Lob to suit your face shape and features.
From pastel pink to intense, darker hues, last year’s colour trend carried through into 2014.
The more creative – the better. We moved from 2013’s fishtail side braid to a plethora of options – from full braids, braided accents to intricate braided updos , this is a trend that is here to stay well into 2015.
Somewhere between brunette and blonde, this colour trend emerged in the second half of 2014 and we predict it will be 2015’s most requested colour.
From sleek and architectural , to full and voluminous, ponytails also got interesting this year.
One of 2013’s biggest trends, finger waves and perfectly styled locks were popular again this year.
Over the last few years, we have (thankfully!) moved away from stiff, over-styled curls to natural, soft and feminine waves. This is definitely a style that will carry through from season to season (think: Victoria’s Secret waves). Ghd have made this trend easier to achieve with their new range of Curve styling wands.

From strong coppers to soft, strawberry blondes, the Rose gold colour trend was requested in salons throughout 2014
This year we moved away from strong Ombre (balayage) colour, with roots that were a bold contrast against our ends. The Sombre trend softened this look, with more of a subtle colour graduation from root to tip.
Stay tuned for our 2015 hair predictions!
