The new year calls for new things. Why not try a fresh hairstyle too? Hairstylist Asgar Saboo predicts hairstyles which will be in vogue and ones will be out of fashion in 2014. The Britain-based stylist has suggestions for women as well as men.
Windswept up-dos: This look is both casual and dishevelled yet oozes subtle glamour and charm. For those who are a fan of up-dos, it is recommended letting plenty of loose locks fall around the face, when pinning hair up.
Short hair and cropped pixie cuts: Looking for a drastic change? Give yourself a cropped hair style. If you already have short hair, a great way to make cropped cut more exciting is to add layering. However, it is advised to always consider face shape and hair texture before making any dramatic change.
Braids: For those ladies who are thinking about spring and summer of next year, they can start experimenting with braids. Popular ones include the braid crown, in which a thick braid is wrapped around the crown of the head and the fishtail braid intertwining with neutral coloured ribbons, creating a fun yet sleek and subtle twist.

Long hair: Keeping hair long will give you a chance to create numerous styles as per your wish. Static buzz cuts are no longer on trend – long hair, which can be tousled, swept to the side or slicked back in a ‘Great Gatsby’ style is in!
Accessorise: Men can accessorise using a bandanna. For those who are apprehensive, bandanna is both masculine and casual and can work extremely well for men who are too lazy to style their hair.
Sharp fringes and varied lengths: For an edgier look, a rise in the short, sharp fringe, is often carried well and emphasised when the sides and crown of the head are cut short. Not only is this a refreshing change but it also works well for those who wish to hide a receding hairline or simply keep their foreheads covered. (Read: Do you like MS Dhoni’s Mohawk hairstyle?)
