Alecia Beth Moore, better known by her stage name P!nk styles a cutting edge hairstyle in 2015 and spells her name with an "!" instead of "i".
Cutting Edge Hairstyles
Hairstyle trends 2015 are twists on some old styles adorned with interesting colors and flair introduced by some of the same trend setters as the year before. The absolute number one hairstyle trend this year was introduced by P!nk, Rihanna and Willow Smith way back in 2012.
Female celebrities have been literally shaving the sides of their heads while allowing the top to grow out long, moussed up and back or flopping gracefully over to the side.
One variation of the female Mohawk consists of close shaving one side of the head and allowing the length of one's hair to cascade down the other side, often down to as long as shoulder-length.
Naturally, all manner of color highlights have been added to this look, both in the flowing long tresses and decidedly as a "stripe" across the close shave.
Jennifer Hudson styles a long hairstyle with bouncy waves and full fringe. Soft curls added mid-length frame her face shape perfectly. She's come a long way since 2004 when she was a finalist on American Idol.
Bangs are Still Banging
Bringing back the bangs with a bang has been the emphasis in 2013 for Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, Brandy and Reese Witherspoon. Bangs are no longer just forehead coverage. A world of expression is raised in how you wear them.
Taylor, Brandy and Reese went with thick, long, heavy bangs, starting at the top of the head and running right down to the lashes in a majestically sweeping curtain. Heavy, straight bangs speak of coyness, a peak out from behind the curtain. They redefine the contours of the face, bringing attention to the eyes.
Other kinds of bangs say different things about you. Short straight bangs that expose half the forehead say "rocker chick." Mid-length, mildly feathered bangs are the least expressive and say "librarian." Long, feminine bangs that sweep deliciously to the side allude to the sensual.
Another hairstyle trend that Taylor has set for 2015 is the up-do with smokey eyes.
Another hairstyle trend that Taylor has set for 2015 is the up-do with smokey eyes. Sculpted with complexity and sprayed down for good measure, Taylor brings elegance and class not only to the red carpet but out and about as well. The up-dos are not just for weddings anymore, and the intricate, loose French braiding that makes them possible alludes to what black women have been doing with their hair for centuries.
Additionally, 2015 has brought back the braids of all kinds, particularly the loose, effortlessly sexy, "just keeping it out of the way" kind. What better reason to grow your hair out long than to sweep it into a graceful plait, starting at the top of your head and winding downwards in the nearly forgotten French style or cascading like water over your shoulder in a single side braid. Let's not forget how sexy a head of full flowing hair is. Adorn it with several small braids here and there, tied with suede thong or with ribbon braided into it.
Katy Perry gives this sexy style a classic look and feel with bold swath of color.
Bold swaths of color will never go out of style, as demonstrated by Gwen Stefani and Katy Perry. Set the stage for your bad self by employing whole pops of color to your crown.
Go for secondary and tertiary hues like pinks, teals and purples. May your violet hair phase inspire sizzling combinations when choosing your outfit each morning.
Dip Dye is yet another one of 2015's "it" styles. Last year, dark tresses with blond tips were all the rage. This year, the trend is the opposite effect. Mix it up by dip dying your mane with lighter roots and darker tips in the style of Jessica Simpson and Beyonce.
No matter what direction you go in, keep your locks healthy with regular trims, natural oils, good conditioners and other organic products. One of the best conditioners I have ever used is Pro Naturals Moroccan Argan Oil.

Long Hairstyles with fine or thin long hair worn straight usually will look very boring. However when pinned back it will appear to have more fullness especially if you roll the hair on curlers.
Long Wavy/Curly Hairstyles although classic and feminine are probably the most sexy. For round faces this hairstyle is better than completely straight hair. Either naturally wavy or gently permed it will conceal wide cheek bones.
Medium Length Hairstyles are easy to take care of and style than longer hairstyles yet more versatile than shorter hairstyles. Medium hairstyles match most facial shapes well as there is just enough hair complimenting the facial region and enhancing other features.
Short Hairstyles Short Hairstyles are generally best with an elongated oval face, are quick to blow dry or air-dry and can be styled with a little mouse or gel.
