Hairstyle trends for 2012 are definitely going in a more minimalist direction, looks vary from sleek, slicked back styles, side braids, french pleats (chignons) to groomed and styled ponytails. My favourite is the ponytail. They have made a big come back recently, you will find this style everywhere – on the high-street, the catwalk and even on the red carpet. Slicked back or pulled to one side, there are high ponytails, low ponytails – you can even add a bow if you are feeling adventurous! Mostly the look is simple, sleek and polished, with fresh clear skin to compliment the look.
I picked a few of my favourite A-list styles to share with you, for some celebrity inspiration.
I thought I would include a few photographs of my own home-styled ponytails – a high ponytail and a side ponytail.
Personally I love these styles, they really have such an elegance about them, so what is your favourite style for 2012?
Other trends that are gaining popularity in 2012, are styles like the 60’s inspired, voluminous beehive but that is a topic for another post!
