NYFW might be all about what's going to hit the market this fall, but I personally care most about what's just around the corner: spring. After sneaking backstage at a few shows, I'm stupid excited to share all the spring 2016 hair trends with you that are going to be huge. I'm getting the scoop straight from professional stylists!
While taking a quick break from turning models' hair into straight up effortless art backstage at the Katie Ermilio show, I was able to spend a few minutes chatting with Mirza Batanovic, lead hairstylist for the show and a Eufora educator, along with Dana Hodges, another of Eufora's amazing national trainers and stylists. And fun fact, if you read Bustle's fashion news regularly, you'll totally recognize their names from an article on whether or not razoring is bad for your hair, as well as the key things hairstylists would never do to someone's hair.
Before I dive into what to expect this spring, I want to give you a quick heads up on what Batanovic and Hodges have officially deemed "old news." Sadly for all the lazy hair girls out there (myself totally included), both stylists agreed that the #IWokeUpLikeThis low key and utterly messy look won't be as trendy in the near future. I'm going to rock it with pride on occasion regardless, but the more structured spring trends below will be fun to try out!
1. "Dressed" Hair
Batanovic explained that messy half-wavy hair with an unclear part is going to evolve into more structured curls and shapes this year, creating that old Hollywood glam feel.
2. Brushed Out Waves
But not to be forgotten completely, Hodges added that she totally suspects more cohesive brushed out wave patterns to be super on trend.
Both Batanovic and Hodges agreed we can expect to see a lot more updos happening on the red carpet (and more updo tutorials on Pinterest!) in the very near future.
4. High Shine
Farewell to dull, subdued hues. Hodges said everyone will soon transition to "chic and shiny" 'dos instead.
In the words of Batanovic, "Embrace it. This is always going to be a trend."
6. "Not Pink" Pink Pastel Tones
Both stylists agreed that shades of pink that didn't scream "bubble gum!" are going to start popping up everywhere.
7. Earthy Tones
Another set of colors the two expect to be big include more "natural" pastel hues like desert sand, baby blue, and seafoam green.
Please excuse me while I call up my stylist for a bleach job to make this happen...
