Each year brings its own wave of the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to hair trends, and 2015 did not disappoint. From glitter roots (that only the bravest dared to try) to lob mania (that seemingly everyone tried), we saw our fair share of hair transformations. We called Philly’s industry finest to hear their do’s and don’ts for the new year so you can face 2016 – and your next hair appointment – ahead of the curve.
