We’ve scanned the runways, celebrity style and listened to what our clients have been asking for across our salons to bring you our pick of hair trends to try in 2015.
2014 was a great year in hair. We saw colour move from bolder, harsher shades to more natural, sun-kissed tones and we saw a more creative take on simple hairstyles like ponytails and braids. 2015 will see a continuation of many of our favourite trends from the past year, plus a few of our favourite looks from seasons past make resurgence.
Sombre: In 2015, we’ll see a continuation of the somber trend – a more subtle take on Ombre (also known as balayage). Sombre is a more natural, sun-kissed look and is suitable for any hair type or colour.
Rich Auburn: We’ll see a continuation of rose gold hues in 2015, but we’ll also see rich auburn tones (think Emma Stone) become more popular, particular as the weather gets cooler mid-year.
Blonde: from champagne tones to honey blonde hues, blonde never goes out of fashion. It’s all about keeping it natural-looking and finding the right blonde that best suits you.

Bronde: Not quite brunette and not quite blonde, we saw this trend emerge in the second half of 2014. Tipped to be this year’s most requested colour, the ‘Bronde’ trend is perfect for brunettes who want a lighter look and blondes who want a change. This year we’ll also see more clients experimenting with their colour and moving to darker hues. Cameron Diaz and Emma Watson both had drastic colour transformations this year to beautiful, rich chocolate tones.
Messy loose waves: Over the last few years, we’ve seen a shift from over-styled curls, to more natural, beachy waves. This year, we’ll see waves and curls relax even more, with the ‘air dried’ look making a comeback. But don’t get too excited ladies – this look isn’t as simple as rolling out of bed and heading out the door. It requires a good, layered haircut to make this look work for you. Investing in the right products and tools will mean the difference between looking like you haven’t brushed your hair in a week and sexy, Californian surfer-girl style locks.
‘Coming undone’ styles: Inline with the ‘messy’ trend, we’ll see half-do’s, updos, pony tails and braids worn loosely, accentuated with romantic wisps of hair around the face.
Keep it low: say goodbye to the topknot – low ponytails, and chic low chignons and buns are back this year. Wear this style loose and ‘coming undone’ or if you prefer more of a slicker look, pair the style with a side part for a modern edge.
Braids: One trend – infinite styles. Perfect for day-to-day wear, any special occasion or for days when you’ve skipped a wash, the braid trend is a perfect accessory. From deconstructed bohemian plaits to intricate braided updos – creativity is endless and the trend is well and truly here to stay in 2015.
Headband crowns: We saw a hint of this trend on the racetrack in 2014 and although we’re not quite sure if the trend has legs to continue on into 2015, we love the idea of a headband crown. A stylish touch that makes a statement – check out our client Simone Heng’s DIY gold leaf headband here: www.DIYnamicstyle.com.au
Haircuts Short: From lobs to bobs, crops to quiffs, short cuts have made a resurgence and we will continue to see our clients experimenting with shorter styles this year. The Lob (long bob) will continue to be a popular cut – it is universally flattering and can be adapted to suit your face shape.
Love you’re hair long? Longer locks never go out of fashion – just make sure you keep your ends healthy and neat with regular trims to avoid the ‘ratty’ look. Adding texture and layers to your hair will flatter your features and make styling at home easier.
Fringes: Fringes are a modern and simple way to update your style if you’re not up for a drastic chop. From side-swept fringes, to fuller, blunt fringes, there is a fringe to suit almost everyone.
