Hair Style Trends in 2005

The hair style trends in 2005 swept the globe slowly, which means that the life cycle is actually a few years from the birth of a new trend to the eventual fizzle. And then there are those we can’t ever seem to eradicate completely such as the terrible 80’s bangs. A lot of styles come and go and some stick around for years to come. Some of the reflecting hairstyles of the season of 2005 are as follows:

Reflecting the annual, age-old battle between traditional sophistication and teenage freshness, 2005 prom hair styles were a blend of the classic hair dos of yesteryear and some funky modern hair styles. The 2005 prom hairstyles showed a lot of sophistication, ease, and beauty. As usual, curls were very much in evidence, but – surprisingly – one of the many popular 2005 prom hairstyles was the long and straight yet simple look.

Another major hairstyle trend this season is the braid. If you read fashion magazines often enough, then you will probably thinking, aren’t braids claimed to be ‘in’ all the time? Well, like many other trends, braids can be styled differently and look very different with different complimentary fashion.

The old Hollywood glamour is characterized by smooth, voluptuous waves, and deep side parts. The latest techniques to get the look are pin curling and finger waving. Do a beautiful vintage accessory on one side or at the back. Look for items with rhinestones or feathers, especially ostrich feathers.

Return to the 80’s means an influence from that time…texture and movement, shorter layers throughout the top, lots of waves and tousled curls. It does not mean that if you’re still sporting a tired old eighties mullet, you’re suddenly back en vogue.

The Razor cut has always been around, on and off. But for 2008, a razor cut with a lot of emphasis on layering is being predicted to be absolutely in. You may have short or long hair and the razor style can be implemented beautifully, without compromising on length.

One of the most important factors to take into account when choosing a hair design or style is the shape of the person’s face, simply because the hair frames the face and the shape of the person’s face will determine what kind of cut, style or design will look the best.

Choosing your hair style

Do you know what hair styles you like and why you like them? If you explain to your stylist what you like about certain features of a hair style i.e. long side-swept bangs or long layers in the back, the stylist may be able to add some of these features to your hair style even though the entire hair style may not be suited for your hair.
