    Every season, we spot recycled trends coming down the runway. We’ve heard (and, hey, reported on) about how hot the bob is and how to perfect your ponytail. We’ve even quaked in fear at the mere mention of the return of the perm. But, we have to say, we’re tired of the same old, same old.

    That’s exactly why we turned to the movers and shakers of the hair industry to reveal some trends that feel really sparkly and new. And, we decided to pick their brains about where hair is headed. We’re not here to spew the same tired trends you’ve heard about a hundred times before.
