Our Top 5 Women's Styles for 2015

As the bitter cold of winter sets in, we thinks it's the perfect time to heat things up with a new look. This season is all about texture, from fuzzy jumpers to new layers in our hair. Here are the top five styles to try out in the new year.

The Edgy Pixie

This season the usually sweet pixie cut gets a makeover with shaved sides, spikes, and tons of texture. This look can be rebellious and feminine at the same time (just like Kristen Stewart) and really accentuate the profile of your cheekbones, neck, and jawline.

My styling tip: Spray a volumising mist (like L’Oreal Professionnel Volume Architect) on your damp hair and then blow dry it in multiple directions using your fingers. Finish by working a light wax throughout your hair and parting it on one side and flipping it over in the opposite direction.

The Ruffled Petite Cut

Say goodbye to those stick straight angled bobs! This season is all about short, defined waves (like Sienna Miller's) that effortlessly frame your face, or peek out from underneath your favourite hat.

My styling tip:  Blow dry your hair in an outward direction with your fingers instead of a brush. Then, use a polishing wax (such as L’Oreal Professionnel Metallic Gloss) to define and separate each tendril and style as you wish.

The Modern Farrah Fawcett

This popular cut takes inspiration from the 1970s beauty icon, but is still completely current. The shoulder-length feathery layers will work with or without a fringe like Taylor Swift’s and complement all face shapes.

My styling tip:  Spray a volumising mist on your roots, then blow-dry your hair forward with your fingers until it is completely dry. Using a round brush, smooth the hair in multiple directions (up, down, left and right), then finish with a light hairspray.

The Blunt Midi Cut

Though texture is trending, this blunt mid-length style is having a major moment, too. It has absolutely no layers, just a straight across cut with a bit of feathering at the ends, and works best on those with an oval face shape.

My styling tip:  Apply straightening balm on wet hair then create a long middle part all the way to the top of the head. Dry it with a paddle brush until the hair is shiny and straight, apply a serum all over and blow dry it again with the same brush until hair it is straight without volume.

Full Graduated Layers

Instead of the been there, done that, mermaid waves that we usually see on the red carpet, starlets like Megan Fox are opting for shorter, more graduated waves that fall just below the collar bone. This looks has natural volume and an effortlessly easy, yet sexy vibe.

My styling tip: Use a volumising spray and frizz control cream and twist your hair into a diffuser until it is dry. Use your fingers to frame tendrils around the face and finish by adding serum on the hair framing your face. Perfect!
