Spring/Summer 2016 Hair Trends: The Best Hairstyles & Looks

spring summer hair trends

by Grazia |

Each new season brings a whole host of trends with it, so what better time to switch up your look? Every season the industry's biggest movers and shakers play around with texture, colour and shape, and bring us more covetable styles than we ever thought possible.

What starts on the catwalk as out-there and elaborate eventually turns into something either pretty or edgy (and sometimes both!), but wearable, and shapes the cuts and styles we plump for in the following months.

This season was about all or nothing. All meant going for glossy, wet-look hair and structured quiffs. Nothing meant rocking your natural curls, or embracing a piecey, insouciant grown-out fringe. Paul Hanlon, Sam McKnight, Guido Paulo and Eugene Souleiman (to name a few) worked their magic backstage on an impressive array of different crops.

Never before in one season have we seen so many unique heads of hair - from Lineisy Montero's barrier-breaking natural afro to Ruth Bell's androgynous shaved head, this season, going with the flow is in.
