Three, two, one, “Happy New Year!” It’s a fresh new year so it’s time for a fresh, new you! If you are considering ringing in 2015 with a new cut and color, there are many popular hair trends to choose from. Read on to learn about some of the hottest looks (and ones that are sure to pop up soon) around town. Here are four cut and color hair trends for 2015.

1. Chop It Off!

Maybe the mentality behind this hair trend is to simply go for it because it’s a new year? Either way, chopping it all off is one of the trendiest things to do. We’re not talking just a trim. If you have hair that falls down to your back, consider going for a shoulder length bob. If you have medium length hair, consider trying out a pixie cut. Chat with your stylist to determine which length is best for you and how many inches you should get rid of.

2. Winter Blonde in Hair Trends

Dying your hair dark during winter has become a thing of the past. Everyone will be keeping it light after the New Year. Think summer highlights and say goodbye to low lights. Some of the top celebs are donning this trend so follow their lead for some instant inspiration!

3. A Nod to Mod

Give a nod to mod by jumping on the bob band wagon. Top stylists predict that retro cuts will be spotted everywhere and on everyone at the end of winter months and in the beginning of spring to warm things up a bit. Think thick, choppy layers that give your look lots of volume and texture; yet that sits at your shoulders. Thick, fringe bangs can also be added to this mod style.

4. Deep Side Parts

When it comes to hair trends for men in the near future, expect to see fades that have a disconnected length on top and set in a deep side part. This barbered look will also be spotted next to men wearing longer hair with tapered ends so they can get that “lived in” texturized look.
