It’s that time of year again. Now is the chance for us to identify the hottest hairstyles for the coming year and to ensure you’re bang on trend.

Here are Dream Girl’s tips …


It isn’t about length this year in terms of style but texture. You want a style that says “hey, I woke up like this” and hair can be worn long or short for that. Ask your stylist for plenty of movement and choppier ends for a low-maintenance finish that looks incredibly chic. Hair extensions can be added for length as well as volume.

To style everyday, use a texturising spray and curl sections of hair in different directions to let it drop in a natural way.

Shaggy fringe

Whatever the length of your hair, a shaggy fringe is very in for 2016. Long enough that you can pull into a ponytail, short enough that it just wisps over your eyes there should be plenty of layers and shape around your face.

A full fringe is also in, but opt for something a little softer for a classic style. Opt for a mid-parting on your fringe to have gentle layers that frame your face.

Curly bob

For those with natural curls you can keep your style in a  bob but with plenty of well defined curls for this season. If your hair needs help with volume, go for Dream Girl’s Waves and Curls range of hair extensions; a French Jerry Curl will add thickness while maintaining texture.

For Solange Knowles triangular Afro ask your stylist for a tapered cut at the ends.

Choppy Layers

For those with finer hair, hair extensions can add volume. But one of the hottest cuts in 2016 can maximize that added style. Ask your stylist for visible layers that begin below the jaw and work down. Think choppy, not unified.

Once the style is cut go for a twisting finish as you control and shape the tips to add more texture and lift.
