WHEN we enter a new fashion season, we always keep our eyes out for the latest fashion and beauty trends to keep our eyes on the style button. But the last thing we think of is the way we should wear our hair. Hair is one of the most striking elements of a catwalk show, photo-shoot or even a night out, so we’ve come up with the best styles for you to try and achieve this season!
Buns. Whether its high buns or low buns this season, buns have been seen on the catwalks from Diane von Furstenberg to Louis Vuitton. It can be petite like a ballerina bun or a big and bold statement, any bun will do! Keep the hair sleek at the front of your head with a side parting and using hairgrips to lock away those strays. If a simple knot isn’t your thing, try a multi-twist bun like at the Rick Owens catwalk show.
Centre-partings. Not just a hairstyle from Dynasty, centre-partings are now back with a bang. This season, straight lines and wet-look waves are all in style as shown by designers like Roberto Cavalli and Gucci. Think off-duty model and beach ready waves.
Braids, twists and plaits. Add a little princess glamour to a relaxed look by adding a cool double-twisted halo braid or for an easy look, tying back the two front sections of your hair and securing them with a pretty clip at the back of your head. This look was seen at Emilio Pucci, Fendi and Valentino.
Quiffs/Bouffants. Backcomb the hair at the roots and gently comb the front section back over the volumised locks before spraying into place for a classy, regal look, perfect for nights out. This was seen everywhere from Alexander McQueen to Anna Sui. The look isn’t about being sleek so this season, give your bouffant a windswept chic look.
Wavy hair. This means, leave the straighteners down. Sleek straight hair is out and those effortless beach babes waves are here, just listen to your rejoicing hair! Leave it to dry naturally for an easy look, spray your hands with hair spray and rub them through your hair for a tousled style. Burberry Prorsum and Chloe have both used this with neutral make-up for a high fashion look.
Last but not least: accessorise! It’s never been so cool to wear a hairband for that princess look or clips in backcombed hair for a bit of an edge! Everyone from Rodarte to Dolce and Gabbana is accessorizing hair and on the days you don’t want to make an effort, a hairband is the perfect thing to brighten up a dull outfit.
Get those hair ideas flowing and create some masterpieces with your hairstyle. Even if you’re just walking round campus doesn’t mean you can’t look like a supermodel!
