13. Quick Twist

You can experiment with different forms of ponytails like the two above to see just where such creativity takes you.

36. A-Lined Highlights
36-hairstyle-this yearThe A-Line hairstyle is being seen more and more this year, mainly because it’s a great style that can be pulled off by various face shapes and personality types. It can still be pulled back into a ponytail or worn down either straight or in curls such as in the photo above. Whatever the style, an A-Line can help pull it off.

37. Large & Soft Shoulder-Length Waves
37-hairstyle-this yearThis is a simple girl-next-door type of hairstyle that’s fashionable and perfect for various occasions whether casual or formal. It’s also perfect to show off how silky soft your hair is.

39. Quickly Thrown Together
39-hairstyle-this yearDid you have perfectly curled hair yesterday but don’t want to wash it today – yet the curls are all frizzy now? It’s the perfect opportunity to throw them together in a messy ponytail that looks both sexy and still shows off some beau curls.

40. Weaved Ponytail
40-hairstyle-this yearVeer away from the traditional by weaving your ponytail together instead placing it in a simple tie. By doing it this way, you can also help support a slight bump in your hair.

41. Cascading Fishtail
41-hairstyle-this yearThis style is a must for those of us that have long hair. Impress those around you with a gorgeous fishtail braid that extends down the back and begins at the crown of the head, framing the face with gorgeously weaved tresses.

42. Braided for a Hat
43-hairstyle-this yearThe great thing about hats is that you only have to fashion half of your hair. If you’re having a bad hair day, slip on a hat and throw the rest of your hair into a loose braid that extends down one shoulder. You can still impress!

43. Teased and Wind-Blown
44-hairstyle-this yearSome of us like the rock-star look, as if we’ve just awoken from a midday nap because we partied all night. This is that look. It goes well with a dark pair of shades, so no one can see those hung-over eyes you may (or may not) have.

44. Gorgeous Volume
45-hairstyle-this yearYou’ll need some volumizing shampoo and conditioner to achieve this look, but  you won’t have to spend too much time curling since the twists are large and meant to be messy and uneven. This hairstyle goes great with summertime outfits.

45. Curling Garden
46-hairstyle-this yearIf your hair is prone to stay by itself, or if you’ve no problem using mousse or gel, you can have your curls point up on top of your head to give you a chic mane that’s bold and makes a statement. Highlights will help make this style look wild.

46. Artistically Straight
47-hairstyle-this yearFor the artist in us all, we like to keep it simple to push our minds towards being creative in the art room. Granted, this style will look best when hair color is blonde, so that it contrasts with dark colors our inner beatnik enjoys wearing.

47. Red Carpet Ready
48-hairstyle-this yearHow can we pass up the layered, curled, highlighted look? It’s classic, and looks wonderful and the vast majority of women – especially when teased enough in the back for a slight bump.

48. 80’s Trend Queen
49-hairstyle-this yearThis model is sporting a retro 80’s style, reminiscent of the Eurhythmics and today’s Miley Cyrus. Short hair is definitely in, especially with bold cuts such as the one seen above. The rare vixen will be seen making this type of fashion statement.

49. Hybrid Ponytail
50-hairstyle-this yearEver wonder what it’d look like to combine a normal braid with a fishtail braid? Well, here you have it! The normal braid can easily be done framing the face, while the more complex fishtail finishes off the rest of the ponytail.

50. Doll Bob
51-hairstyle-this yearIf you’ve natural waves, you can easily grab this hairstyle by cutting it at lip-length. It’s fun, cute, and reminds us of the roaring 20’s.

51. Sexy Layers
52-hairstyle-this yearLayers and bangs are a style that nearly every woman must try at least once. This hairstyle isn’t going away, and for good reason. It can be fashioned into many different styles and can fit most personality types.

52. Bohemian Beauty
53-hairstyle-this yearCould braids look any more trendy and beautiful? Long hair is dying to be braided, and wrapping the braid around the face adds the twist that makes it unique and reminiscent of Bohemian style.

53. Curly Locks
54-hairstyle-this yearEven soft, silky hair can be curled to perfection in light curls that frame the face. Highlights are what causes these curls to truly stand out.

54. Poetically Pretty
55-hairstyle-this yearFor the cute and innocent in us all, a hairstyle such as this one has both bangs and layers while staying off the shoulders and out of the way. The perfect ‘do for those of us that are busy or enjoy the feeling of our hair brushing against our neck.

55. Baring the Neck
56-hairstyle-this yearAnd if you don’t like hair brushing against the neck or shoulders at all yet hate the look of boy cuts, here is a perfect example of a hairstyle that’s right in between – lip-length and waved.

56. A Royal Twist
57-hairstyle-this yearShort curls go surprisingly well with various types of hair accessories, even tiaras. The curls hide the bands while the bling showcases itself atop a lovely head of ringlets.

57. Swept and Bobbed
58-hairstyle-this yearHere is a great example of another oblique hair cut, with one side longer than the other – a style that’ becoming more and more trendy these days.

60. Falling Ringlets
61-hairstyle-this yearFor a soft and inviting shoulder-length cut, try using a small curling iron and a bit of hairspray to achieve the above look. It’s classically chic.

61. Fearless Charm
62-hairstyle-this yearAlas, we have a popular short boy cut that’s still perfect for a bold statement any woman can truly make. It radiates confidence and is perfect for any occasion.
