2012 hairstyles (all lengths)

women's 2012 hair part

Women’s side part

Whether you have short or long hair, or something in between, the side part is the fashionable hair parting in 2012. Working across most of the year’s fashion trends, and compatible with a large number of the other hair trends, our guide to the side part for women takes you through the different ways to wear the parting and provides over 80 different photos for styling inspiration.

Wet look hair

Perfectly slick or unceremoniously textured, flowing free or tied up high. A vast number of hairstyles across the spring / summer 2012 runways had one thing in common: they all had a wet-look finish. Read our guide to 2012′s wet look hairstyles to be taken through the key wet hairstyles.

indie bangs

Indie fringe / bangs

Fringes, or bangs, have had their revival the past few years. One particular style that remains strong is the grungy, indie take on the style: long, blunt, and bed-hairishly messy, it’s the cool girl’s interpretation for 2012. Read our guide to the indie fringe / bangs.

Center part

As the default hair parting for most women it seems somewhat silly to cite a centre hair part amongst 2012’s hairstyles. But bear with us. Hairstyle trends often have more than one element about them, and that’s the case with the centre part in 2012. Suited to all hair colors, the centre part aligns itself with two or 2012’s revival trends: ‘60s fashion and ‘70s fashion for spring / summer 2012.

That means that the centre part continues to be all about long hair and soft waves. Naturally, there are other 2012 hairstyle trends that it aligns itself with and you wouldn’t be amiss to wear a centre part with the likes of the year’s wet and long hairstyle and its in-numerous up-dos.

2012 haircuts

The very short fringe / bangs.

Were it solely down to the costuming of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo it’d be easy to write this 2012 haircut trend off as far too limited in its demographic appeal to have an impact upon the wider fashion conscious. But with Dragon Tattoo likely to decimate the box office, Rooney Mara’s prime positioning across old and new media, and the fact that Mara has been described as bringing a mainstream sex appeal to the role of Lisbeth Salander, this is one haircut where you can say demographic appeal be damned. After all, if the potential success of the Dragon Tattoo film proves anything it’s that the mainstream is now far broader. Hence the H&M x Dragon Tattoo clothing collection. Hence this short fringe / bangs.

Working across a number hair colors, though obviously a better fit with dark cored hair, the very short fringe / bangs needn’t have any demographic connotations at all. It all comes down to face shape. Keep the cut really short with a smaller forehead or a little bit longer, ala Bettie Page, if that’s what works better for you.

As if to prove both the latter point and the fact that the demographic limitations simply don’t exist with this really short fringe, you’ll find its a haircut that has also featured well away from the world of well-worn leather and umpteenth piercings. Model Aymeline Valade took the short fringe / bangs to the John Galliano spring / summer 2012 catwalk, and did so with a distinct level of modern elegance.
