2012 Trends

The year marks the true start of a new decade, and yet 2012's fashion trends are all about revival.
True, there is a unique undertone of a modernist style appearing, but take some of the most iconic
styles of the 20th century, infuse them with quality, and you'll find the basis for the dominant styles
of 2012. The year's hair trends are no different.
For fashionisers in 2012, hair is all about revivals and evolution.

Long & Bouncy
Described as a gorgeous blow-out the bouncy blow dry gives long hair a
groomed, elegant yet relaxed finish. Inspired, in part, by the 70s fashion
revival but working across most of 2012′s looks.

Homemade Curls
Both nostalgic and modern, this girlish and quirky hairstyle features many an
element of other 2012 hairstyle trends: it has a parting and obvious product
definition. Soft and eye-catching, homemade curls give off a laid back air as
one of 2012′s long hairstyle trends.

French Twist                                                                                             
Given that classic fashion revivals define 2012, it should come as no
surprised to find that classic hairstyles also go a long way to defining the
year. Equally of no surprise is the fact that the French Twist hairstyle
features for the year.

Looped Under Ponytail                                                                           
Less of a bun and more of a ponytail that’s been folded and looped under,
this hairstyle offers up a mood somewhere between easy and casual, and
tightly equestrian. It provided the perfect compliment to Carolina Herrera’s
spring runway; as it can to your own outfits.

Tumbled Tail
The only thing tricky about this hairstyle is it’s appearance. Simple to create,
it gives off the illusion of being a fish plait, but in fact there’s no braiding
involved. This faux fish braid, dubbed the tumbled tail is worth a try at

Tomboy Ponytail                                                                                     
With androgynous fashion a dominant trend for 2012, this nonchalant style
is the ideal marriage of masculinity and femininity.


Tousled Bob
With a twenties revival comes an inevitability of a flapper-inspired hairstyle.
This one isn’t a sharp, Louise Brooks bob though, nor is it intended as a
pristine finger wave. Instead the modern update on the twenties hairstyle is a
tousled, mildly dishevelled one. You don’t need short hair either – it can be
cleverly faked

Mod Bob
Short. Voluminous. Messy. This is the 2012 women’s hairstyle that marries
a short hair cut with the best of the 1960s fashion revival to create a Mod Bob that’s been inspired by the likes of Brigitte Bardot and Twiggy.
