This week, I’m helping make sure your beautiful tresses are styled perfectly for spring. Runway fashions can sometimes be a little bizarre, but weʼve found styles appropriate for everyday that will still let everyone know youʼre up to date with the latest trends. From intricate braids to simple accessories when youʼre short on time, this week youʼll be well educated on hairstyles for this season. Donʼt have time to wash your hair? Or maybe youʼre trying to decrease the damage by not blow-drying/straightening all the time. Either way, this headscarf trend shows that you really donʼt need tons of time or tools to look well put together. Pull your hair back into a low messy bun, or a tucked under french braid, and then tie it all together with a colorful scarf appropriate for spring. Dolce and Gabbanaʼs vibrant silks make this low maintenance style a favorite.
If youʼre looking for a fun, but temporary way to switch up your style, colored extensions are the way to go. Try not to think of brightly colored strands as only appropriate for costume parties, as you can see Peter Somʼs runway show displayed a colorful rainbow of hair in a fashionable and not frightening way. Opt out of super bright neons, and scarcely scatter light pastels and more muted hues throughout for a subtle but youthful infusion.
To be sleek and sophisticated, look no further than Gucci. At fashion week, their hairstyles were just as structured as their garments keeping their sophisticated vibe strong. Gather hair in a low ponytail and create a loop, then wrap the ends around the base and secure with bobby pins. For a less severe look than seen on the runway, skip the added hair gel and try a side part instead of a center part. Itʼs a great alternative to a regular pony tail when you just want your hair out of your face.
Beachy waves have always been popular for spring and summer, but for 2013, there was a stronger focus on texture than strictly waves. To capture the effortless vibe without appearing too surfer-girl, prep hair with a volumizing mousse, then twist dry hair into a bun/knot and spray with dry shampoo. Leave in for at least an hour (if not over night), and then release and tousle it up with your fingers.
One of my favorite things is that none of these styles require lots of hands-on time! Even though these work for everyday style, I canʼt help but imagine them during a boudoir shoot as well. Check back for more trends in makeup and clothing for the following weeks.
