We’re sure by now that you’re just a littttle bit sick of this whole ‘new year, new you’ mantra, so we’ve decided to skip it, and instead share some of the brilliant beauty trends for the year ahead, courtesy of one of our favourite beauty blogs, Byrdie.

Take a look…

Shaggy layers

Nate Rosencrantz, creative team stylist for Alterna Haircare told Byrdie that shaggy layers were going to be a big hit in 2016, saying “We all know the shag was the cool-girl cut of fall 2014—and it doesn’t look like it’s going away any time soon. I think there will be a great hair trend inspired by female rockers from the ’70s and early ’80s, like Joan Jett.” Bring on the layers!

Gilded Hair

If you haven’t considered hair accessories since your Blair Waldorf obsession days (long live the queen of the Upper East Side), then Byrdie predicts it’s time to reconsider! Designers like Rodarte, Marc Jacobs, and Givenchy marched models down the runway with statement hair accessories—the more eye-catching, the better. This is a personal favourite at SkinBase – bring on the accessories!

Bright Lips!

Yes! We-are-over-the-blooming-moon that this trend looks set to stay! And why wouldn’t it? The bold lip can be styled in so many different colours to match, well, pretty much everything! We love hot pink as a change from the Christmas glossy red, but why not experiment with autumnal mauves and darker purple shades?

Braid it!

We’ve been advocates of the braid at SkinBase since pretty much, forever! The fact is that there’s a braid for every style and length hair – I mean Harvey Nicholls even has it’s own dedicated Braid Bar now. Need we say more? Go forth and plait.
