This look is all about texture and movement. The short sides are contrasted with the length on top which has a tousled finish for a relaxed look. Create the look using sea salt spray to get a matte finish and strong hold.

This look illustrates the disconnection trend which is big news this year. The closely shaved sections contrast with the longer length sections and this gives the look real depth.

This look centres on embracing and enhancing natural textures. Gently backcomb the hair on the crown to create the height and drama.

The rockabilly quiff is a major trend this year. Use a hairdryer to create volume at the roots – you can even add a little dry shampoo to give it an extra boost. Simply direct the nozzle of the hairdryer upwards and forward before brushing the hair back to create the quiff shape for a retro feel that instantly adds body to hair.

This look has a choppy, defined edge which you can achieve at home by warming a little wax in your hand and roughly working through with your fingertips.
