What’s amazing about the looks is that they give the already colorful look a multidimensional touch. The hair is also said to look equally jaw dropping during the day as they do in the dark.

The Glitteratti Trend

Sparkles are being incorporated into hair dos for show stopping looks. This trend has mostly been seen with celebrities, but it might just be the next big hair trend going into the New Year.

Mathew Curtis, a Runway Stylist, explained that the Glitter look is ideal for the festive season. He also explained that the look is easily achieved by mixing glitter and eye shadows then putting on the roots of the hair using resin/gel and paint.

Hair Tapestry

Hair Tapestry is yet another colorful trend that cropped up in mid 2015 and might just rule 2016. This look is achieved by literally weaving colorful woolen yarns to your locks. It is an intricate styling choice, definitely won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but it does create a head-turning look.

Hair is serious business to everyone and we all want our hair to look good. Like fashion, some people take it a notch higher by going for ‘Haute Couture Hair’ looks.
