    Best and Worst Hairstyle Trends of the Year

    This was the year of hairstyle trends. From short bobs to crazy colored hair, there were vast amounts of new and unusual looks. I wanted to take a look back at some of the best and worst hairstyle trends of the year and see what’s to come for next year.

    Best Hairstyle Trends of the Year

    Short Bob Hairstyles

    Many women tried a version of the short bob hairstyle this year. From a-line bobs to short cropped bobs, these short bob hairstyle trends were seen on just about everyone. My favorite short bob hairstyle of the year was the a-line bob, which is shorter in the back and longer in the front. Celebrities like Jenny McCarthy were seen sporting this style, as was I.

    Braided Hair

    I saw braided hair everywhere this past year. What a hairstyle trend this was! Celebrities were rocking this look on the red carpet while you and I wore this look on the beach. Small braids, big braids and everything in between encompassed the braided hairstyle trends look. I predict that we will see more of this look in the upcoming year.

    Long Hair

    Although the short bob hairstyles were quite popular this year, long hair was also in. I saw a trend towards more relaxed long hair that looked undone on celebs like Demi Moore, Jennifer Aniston and Gisele Bündchen among others. Strong wave patterns in long hair that we saw relaxed this past year for a more laid back look. For more hot looks check out my article Long Hair Styles Trending for 2014.

    Crazy Colored Hair

    Between Drew Barrymore’s dipped ends look and bad color jobs all over, the year seemed to have many crazy colored hairstyle trends. Although experimentation is sometimes good . . . these looks were very, very bad. I think we all learned our lesson and crazy colored hair will not be back. Thank God!

    So many celebrities went with an unnatural blonde look this year. Katharine McPhee, Rihanna and Lily Allen come to mind. If you, too, went with an unnatural blonde look this year, I urge you to return back to a more natural looking color. Platinum blonde isn’t widely flattering and these hairstyle trends will go away next year. 80’s Hairstyles Twilight star Kristen Stewart was one of the first ones to get an 80’s hairstyle trends look. She channeled Joan Jett for her look, but others followed suit. Let’s leave 80’s hair in the 80’s.


    What’s to Come

    More Bobs

    Hairstyle trends like the bob are so popular that I think they will stick around in the New Year. I expect we’ll be seeing longer bobs that are shoulder length as the shorter bob styles are grown out. For more medium and long bob ideas check out my article Layered Bob Hairstyles Big New Trend!

    Relaxed Hairstyles

    Hairstyles will continue to be more relaxed and laid back looking. There is a time and place for formal hair, but I don’t believe this next year will be that time. Hairstyles like Blake Lively’s in Gossip Girl are gaining popularity so I see hairstyle trends heading this way.

    1. I agree that Katharine McPhee’s blonde makeover was the wrrrrong move. She looks amazing as a brunette! Not so much with the lighter locks…
