5 Spring 2012 Hair Trends From Barney Martin

Barney Martin on This Season's Biggest Hair Trends

A change in season is the perfect time to reinvent your hair colour and style, and if you want to keep on-trend, celebrity hairstylist Barney Martin says there's a few options to consider as we move into Summer. "For starters, it’s time to pack up your curling tongs and think natural texture and long, grown-out layers."

The natural look was huge at the Spring 2013 international runway shows, with designers including Charlotte Ronson, Lanvin (pictured above) and Versace all giving a nod to minimal styling and effortless hair.

"Hair is moving away from the Kardashian and Victoria's Secret bombshell look and towards a more unstated look, just like the fashion from the catwalks," says Barney. To find out his top five hairstyles to try this season, click through..
