Love all the new fashion trends but hate having to dish out more money every single season to keep up? The great thing about hair and beauty trends is that although they change just about as frequently as our clothes, they tend to cost a whole lot less! Maybe with some hair or nail styles it becomes more of an investment in time to perfect the technique, but hey practice makes perfect right? Below are a couple different options for you to try out this season that will keep your wallet and your inner fashionista at peace together!
The low ponytail is back and not just for the gym. This look stays glam by being able to wrap a section of hair around the base to camouflage your regular hair elastic. You can go slicked back all the way, but if that seems too extreme, a deep side part or tousled roots will soften it up as well.
Get down and dirty with the grunge trend! You can still rock the part while being clean as a whistle, but to get the rocker and underground vibe, many runway looks included the wet hair look. I know, I know, who knew that one day not having to blow-out your hair would be in? A great way to wear it (and not accidentally look like a grease ball!) is to pull it into a messy up-do.
And to be honest, a good braid will never go out of style. French it, twist it, tighten it, loosen it, a braid is a great way to work with hair that isn’t quite sitting right on it’s own, or to easily add an intricate element to your entire look.
Much like the braid, a cat-eye is nothing new to the make-up scene. But this year they used different colors and even used the bottom eye-lid instead of the top. The little twists on the traditional trend made for a whole new look.
Finally, much like the rest of fall fashion, the colors can completely dictate what in-style. Deep jewel tones have returned, and this year on your eyes as well. But to avoid looking like you’re wearing stage make-up go for the muted tones. So instead of a deep violet, choose a purple that has more brown tones mixed in. Designers varied with this technique, some a bit more extreme than others (the look on the left is a little more street friendly). Like usual with makeup, we’ll just leave you here with the tip that less is always more.
