We asked some of the UK's most renowned hairdressers for their thoughts on the latest trends for hair:
"The bob is the big story at the moment" says Errol Douglas "and the big trend for the next 12 months. The bob comes in so many different shapes and forms that it's hard for it not to be big again".
Zoe Irwin (International Creative Director for Headmasters UK) has been looking to fashion trends for her inspiration. "Designs at the moment are more tailored, so as a result hair is more groomed, everything is more structured. In Paris and Milan we saw a lot more sleek looking hairstyles with centre partings".
I think Patrick Cameron the well known long hair specialist would agree with her. "The trend in long hair is very glamorous 'couture hair' in response to some of the fitted, elegant garments. Next year though will be a little less formal".
With the bob being predicted globally as the next big thing in hair we decided to create a page full of 'bob' inspiration.
