New Year, New ‘Do! 17 Ways to Change Up Your Hair in 2015

2014, you were great, but we have to admit we’re pretty stoked about all the possibilities 2015 has to offer. You’re probably already scouting out the cutest gym attire to achieve those New Year’s fitness goals in, but we have a slightly different resolution in mind – one that doesn’t require a monthly membership. With a new year should come a new ‘do. Whether you’re looking for a new cut, color or just a fun hairstyle, here’s what’s we’re predicting will be big in the year to come.

Cuts

1. The Shag: Take things back to the ’70s with this ‘do. Rock it with some heavy bangs for the ultimate shaggy look or tone it done and keep your face hair free. (via C-Heads Magazine)

2. The Medium Cut: The cut that’s popping up on women everywhere. This blunt, shoulder length chop is easy, chic and undeniably hip. We’re guessing your hairstylist has probably already mastered it. (via @kristin_ess)

3. Sweet Pixie: Thanks to Miley and J. Law, an edgy pixie cut really started to take off in 2014. We think 2015 will be much of the same, but perhaps with a bit more of an innocent edge. In contrast to the rock n’ roll bedhead we’ve grown to love, keep things ultra clean with this sweet style. (via Listal)

4. Ruffled Petite Cut: If you want to go a little shorter than the blunt medium cut, try this style that falls right above the shoulder line and is a little more textured. This cut looks amazing with a bit wave in it, so who better to show it off than the queen of wavy locks, Ms. Alexa Chung. (via @chungalexa)

Color

5. Gray: Gray isn’t just for grannies anymore. The silver shade looks shockingly flattering on a younger generation. Whether you go for a deeper shade with hints of blue or more on the platinum end of the spectrum, this dye job is sure to stun. (via Love Aesthetics)

6. Deep Ash: Forget the ultra vibrant shades of 2014. Take it back to your grade school days with this subtle and au naturel shade of dirty blonde. (via Simon Priestley Photography)

7. Rose Gold: Not quite bronze, but metallic in its own right, we’re expecting to see a lot more of this color in 2015. Consider the brassy tone that’s a mix between red, pink and yellow an updated version of the strawberry blonde we saw everywhere in the ’90s. (via Flatnews)

8. Visible Roots: What used to be a major fashion faux-pas is now taking the main stage with some of the trendiest folks in the fashion world. Skip the ombre dye job and just let those dark roots show. (via Citizen Couture)

9. Babylights: If you’re not familiar with the term, babylights are delicate blonde highlights painted on using the balayage technique. The process gives hair color dimension, sort of like a blonde kid’s hair at the end of summer. The technique is designed to make hair look as natural as possible. (via @dominikagrnova)

Styles

10. Slicked Back:  Whether you’re headed to a black tie event or to the grocery store, a sleek updo (or lowdo) is an instant way to class up any ensemble. (via A Cup of Jo and Byrdie)

11. Half Top Knot: Showing up everywhere, this style gives you the best of both worlds – sweep hair up out of your face while still keeping some of it loose. No matter your hair length, this is a quick and easy trend to try. (via Her New Tribe)

12. Perfectly Undone: With the exception of sleek ponytails, perfectly placed updos are totally out. Sweep your hair up in a purposely disheveled bun or twist to immediately evoke a carefree, windswept kind of beauty. (via Style.com)

13. Dramatic Side Part: This isn’t the angsty side part of your high school days. Sport this exaggerated part in a sleek pony or wear your hair down and keep the front secure with some decorative bobby pins. (via POPSUGAR)

14. Rope Braid: Whether it’s wrapped around your head or simply hanging low to the side, this easy and secure twist is the new fishtail. (via Refinery29)

Accessories

15. Decorative Hair Pieces: This isn’t your standard hair pin. This gorgeous piece of metalwork instantly turns that basic bun into a unique updo. Whether you opt for something as bold as this or a statement hair clip, chunky hair adornments will be everywhere. (via Better Late Than Never)

16. Ribbons and String: With twists and braids still very much a part of everyday wear, adding in some lace, ribbon or colored embroidery string is an easy and non-permanent way to add some color and originality to a classic style. (via Once Wed)

17. Exposed Bobby Pins: Don’t worry about finding bobby pins that will perfectly match your hair color anymore. In fact, the more contrast the better — you’re going to want these hair staples to show. (via Cosmopolitan and Allure)
