It's the perfect time to reinvent yourself or switch up your look, and there's no better way to do that than with a hair makeover. But before you hit the salon, you might what to consider these hair trends to try in 2016. They were so popular in 2015, that they definitely bear repeating.

When it comes to making a drastic hair change, if you know what you like and what works for you, then totally run with it, but if you need some additional inspiration, then it definitely helps to look at what the most popular hair trends were of the past year. That way, you know your style will be modern, on trend, and fresh. And really, there's no better indicator of what's hot than Hollywood, right?

If you're in the mood to switch up your look, consider trying these hair trends in 2016.
