If we had a nickel for every time we instructed a reluctant hairstylist to give us blunt bangs or an aggressive bleach job, only to regret the choice mere hours later, we’d have enough cash for a fancy cut and color, and then some. So if come January 1st you find yourself aching to change up your look, take a beat before you head to the salon and check out our predictions for the biggest hair trends for 2015 first. Hair’s to a happy and well-coiffed New Year!
The No-Nonsense Center Part
Classic, chic and oh-so-simple, the center part is making a major comeback, and we couldn't be more excited.

The Grown-Out Pixie
For those of you who went full-on Michelle Williams in 2014 and are looking for a bit more length, fear not: 2015 is all about the slightly grown-out pixie.

The Low Ponytail
As much as we love a perfectly imperfect topknot, there's something so refreshingly feminine about a loose, low-slung pony. For a burst of boldness, secure with a sleek, Céline-esque barrette.

The Natural Curls
Attention all curly haired girls: Step away from the flat iron! Let your ringlets run free by letting them air-dry (with the help of some defining product) into a retro-tinged, full-bodied style.

The New Ombré
A severe ombré 'do is quite literally so last year. Instead, opt for "sombré" (that's soft ombré for the uninitiated), a delicate gradient developed by the hair experts at Jo Hansford salon in London.

The Shoulder-Length Wave
While billowy beachy waves had their time in the sun, it's time for barely-there waves to swoop in and save the day (and shave precious minutes from your morning routine).
