Spring's trendiest hairstyle this year is totally blah, according to T magazine. It's not a memorable color, and it doesn't have any layers; it's just long, middle-parted "meh" hair. The look is "a real girl with hair tucked behind her ears," Alice Gregory writes, after analyzing all the hair on the runways for spring 2015.
If you're thinking: "Hmm, 'real girl with hair tucked behind her ears,' that's something I can do," be forewarned. The blah hair look actually involves a ton of products for weight-without-grease, and possibly a colorist appointment to get that natural-but-not-actually-natural shade.
And the look might only work for a select few, anyway. "It's a status symbol in a way. These women, they do nothing to their hair, but the clothes are right, the shoes are right, they're fit, their skin is beautiful," Bumble and Bumble's editorial stylist Jimmy Paul told T. No wonder T calls this "passive-aggressive hair."
