2015 saw its fair share of hair trends - from the wildly popular wavy "lob" to bright and beautiful #mermaidhair and #unicornhair to balayage and "bronde," it was a year of bold self-expression. Individuality, and the idea of embracing each client's own natural shape and texture, became the defining, overarching theme of 2015; whether your client wanted the natural look with "babylights" or sombré, or opted for something bolder like rainbow-colored strands.

Trends like glitter roots and "granny hair," were loved by some and hated by others, but these unusual styles got everyone talking.
