2012 long hairstyles

bouncy hairstyle

Long & bouncy

Described as a gorgeous blow-out the bouncy blow dry gives long hair a groomed, elegant yet relaxed finish. Inspired, in part, by the 70s fashion revival but working across most of 2012′s looks, you can read our guide to the bouncy blow-dry for a step-by-step tutorial on getting the look and ensuring that you have the optimum bounce in the roots and the soft waves to frame your face.
Hair type suited to: long straight hair & long wavy hair.
Hair colour suited to: all.
long wavy hairstyle

Homemade curls

Both nostalgic and modern, this girlish and quirky hairstyle features many an element of other 2012 hairstyle trends: it has a parting and obvious product definition. Soft and eye-catching, homade curls give off a laid back air as one of 2012′s long hairstyle trends.

Hair type suited to: long straight hair & long wavy hair.
Hair colour suited to: all, though we feature it with blonde hair.
french twist hairstyle

French twist

Given that classic fashion revivals define 2012, it should come as no surprised to find that classic hairstyles also go a long way to defining the year. Equally of no surprise is the fact that the French twist hairstyle features for the year.
Hair type suited to: long straight hair & long wavy hair.

Hair colour suited to: all.
Season suited to: best as a spring / summer 2012 hairstyle

looped under ponytail

Looped under ponytail

Less of a bun and more of a ponytail that’s been folded and looped under, this hairstyle offers up a mood somewhere between easy and casual, and tightly equestrian. It provided the perfect compliment to Carolina Herrera’s spring runway; as it can to your own outfits.
Hair type suited to: long straight hair & long wavy hair.

Hair colour suited to: all.
Season suited to: best as a spring / summer 2012 hairstyle

brigitte bardot hair

Half up Brigitte Bardot hair

It’s so classically sex kitten that we’d hardly limit it to a 2011 hair trend; but this Brigitte Bardot bouffant hairstyle – half up, half out and as sexy or as sleek as you want to make it – is one that sits perfectly with the year’s fashions. This is a modern, understated take that will suit day or night.
womens rock hair

Women’s rockabilly hair

It’s the one 2012 hairstyle that’s in for both men and women. Emerging first as a men’s hair trend and now as a women’s, the rockabilly hair plays to the country Americana theme running through some of 2012′s fashion. Seldom subtle, but best worn rough and ready as on Proenza Schouler’s catwalk.
side pinned waves

Side pinned waves

Flowing, bouncy waves accessorised by a side-pinned barrette create something of a girlish charm. While long hair works fantastically well for this look – as seen on the spring runway of Sonia Rykiel – this hairstyle can also work for short or mid hair lengths. A collision of forties glamour and seventies relaxed cool.

2012 mid-length hairstyles

2012 bob hairstyle

Retro faux bob

As perfect as a Stepford wife, as ice cool as Betty Draper, as vintage as yesteryear and as modern as tomorrow, 2012′s faux bob hairstyle gives the year a structured, pristine, ‘done’ hairstyle that borrows much from the 60s fashion revival. 
wet bun hairstyle 2012

Wet-look chignon

Don’t be afraid to get your hair wet in 2012 – or at least give the impression that it’s wet. Amongst a long list of wet look 2012 hairstyles, this wet look chignon offers up plenty of versatility along with a relaxed feel. 
Hair type suited to: straight hair, relaxed curly hair & wavy hair.
Hair length suited to: mid-length haircut or long hair.
Hair colour suited to: all colours and complexions.
piled hairstyle 2012

Piled up and pinned hairstyle

If there’s a middle ground between being stylishly done and carelessly undone, this 2012 women’s hairstyle occupies it. Elegant to a tee, it doesn’t require precision or complex tools (bobby pins are your friend – and lots of them) but it does require a little finesse to pull off that undone-done look of effortless chic. 
Hair type suited to: straight hair, relaxed curly hair & wavy hair.

Hair length suited to: mid-length haircut or long hair.

Hair colour suited to: all colours and complexions.
chignon side waves

Chignon with side waves

As seasons change, hairstyles are given new twists. This year the always dependable chignon gets reinvented. In this take, it gets a sweeping side part with soft waves on one side, creating a unique effect that varies with the angle you view it from. 
Hair type suited to: straight hair, relaxed curly hair & wavy hair.
Hair length suited to: shoulder length to long hair.
Hair colour suited to: all colours and complexions.
twist hairstyle 2012

Double French twist

On the spring / summer 2012 runway of Diane von Furstenberg, models emerged with a back-combed crown that swirled back into two mirrored French twists. The effect? A 1960s style bouffant hairstyle that crowns any outfit with an elegant vintage vibe.

2012 short hairstyles

2012 short hair

Mod bob

Short. Voluminous. Messy. This is the 2012 women’s hairstyle that marries a short hair cut with the best of the 1960s fashion revival to create a Mod bob that’s been inspired by the likes of Brigitte Bardot and Twiggy. 
2012 afro

Afro hair

With the return of all things 1970s it should come as no surprise to find that the afro sits amongst 2012′s hairstyles. Appearing on the streets and in many a photo shoot, Afro hair is being interpreted for 2012 in a soft and dreamy way. 

Rock crop haircut

Given it has so many devotees, the isn’t disappearing from amongst 2012’s haircut trends. But it is being adapted. In the face of the likes of the 1920s fashion revival, we’re seeing the pixie crop deviate into several different styles. There’s the 60s and 70s crops, there’ll be the 20s crop, and, for 2012, there’s the rock crop.
The short haircut for those to whom both the very short fringe (see below) and the rockabilly hairstyle (see above) appeal, the rock crop takes on an androgynous edge in 2012. And it does so for both autumn (fall) / winter and spring / summer 2012 courtesy of Lanvin popularising the haircut on both of its seasonal catwalks.
