We’ve all been there. I remember a few years ago, I dyed my locks a very odd shade of blonde, which didn’t quite compliment my wheatish skin tone and even with all the not-so-positive feedback from my loved ones, I thought it looked absolutely fabulous. Fast forward to a few years down the line and I can’t help but cringe when I come across a picture from my ‘Bad Hair Days’ but, nonetheless, such is the cycle of vanity.
Sharpen your pencils because bold and expressive graphic swoops around the eyes are here to stay. Cleopatra, Marilyn Monroe and Brigitte Bardot were the veterans of the iconic cat eye, but expect to see it used widely in the coming year.
The ponytail lift
A savior for all working women, the world’s easiest hairstyle – and one that can disguise greasy hair – is also the secret to a younger looking face. When you stretch your hair tight enough it provides an instant facelift (even if it’s only for an evening). Kate Moss, Gwyneth Paltrow and Sandra Bullock are devotees of the sleek and simple updo. But university researchers in the US, warn people to go easy on the stretching because over-doing it could lead to hair breakage and hair loss. You don’t want to end up shopping for a wig instead of scrunchies. This one should definitely stay back in the coming year.
This crazy trend was all over my Instagram feed early this year all in the name of women empowerment. Yes, you heard it right. Our new generation has gone this far to dye their armpits all in the name of a cause. Dyed armpit hair was totally a thing, flooding the gates of social media with shades of pink, aqua blue and lavender that could possibly leave us colour blind. The trend is amusing, no doubt, but it gets fascinating when you learn of the many reasons behind it. Nonetheless I sincerely hope it does NOT make a comeback in the New Year.
Frizz fried hairdo
It’s the nightmare every girl dreads. Don’t we, gals? But clearly the overlycreative designers love to confront (tease) us with our worst hair fright. Models with frizzy hair seen walking down Reem Acra’s Fall
Negative space nail art
Unlike a full manicure, the near-naked look does not require a base colour because graphic designs are painted on only part of the nail with the rest of it left blank. The trend was spotted on the runways of the Spring 2015 New York Fashion Week and included cool, striped designs and a cute half-moon manicure. A lot more innovation can be done with this look in the New Year and we should carry it into 2016.
Brazilian butt lift
Now this one’s a no-brainer. Kim Kardashain literally broke the internet when she uploaded an image of her naked rear on Instagram. Since the Paper magazine stunt, the Butt lift trend caused a wave across the globe, Cosmetic surgeons are reporting that since Kim K oiled up and exposed her bare booty, there has been a spike in requests for designer derrières. As part of the procedure, fat is sucked from a patient’s stomach, hips, thighs and back, then injected into their buttocks. Instead of a lifetime of lunges and squats, results can be achieved by going under the knife for a few hours. Sounds tempting but not very fascinating, I do hope it goes away if it already hasn’t.
