2012 Review – in HAIR

2012 was an amazing year in style! The hair world went crazy as fashion went up a notch, it was oozing with creativity and I predict a lot of these trends will make it into 2013 and stick around for a while.

I’m gonna go straight into the styles that made an impact for me.

Ombre

The ombre weaves went right off the shelves and stars like nicki minaj made it fun to ombre with many different colorsrainbow ombre

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Heavy Bangs, a Smooth Ponytail & Dip-Dyeย Color

beyfangs460This was another way to have fun with your hair color this year. Many opted for this less permanent route and the dye works on almost all hair color and textures, except super dark hair. The heavy bangs on this hairstyle is stillย a popular trend and the key to a great blunt bang is to keep the sides just a tad bit longer than the center as Beyonce did.demi-lovato-pink-hair-v

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pixie shorts cuts
