This Year’s Top Hair Style and Hair Care Tips
At a recent fashion event this year there were 4 key hair style trends: unstructured hair, matt texture (vs shiny glam), quirky ponies, coloured “tie-dyed” and some hair care tips on how to protect your luscious looking hair at winter.
Hair has a simple and almost childlike feel; it is playful and elegantly unstructured. Middle partings on long flowing and tousled hair seem to dominate the runway. There is an abundance of width and horizontal volume that is evident throughout all styles. This width is helping to create much more angular and geometric shapes than we have seen of late. Think fairy floss from the school fair!
Texture is the big change this season in hair style, with a huge lean Uptown hairstylis toward matt results. Gone is the constant clean sheen we are used to seeing from the “Shiny Glam” look. Light, airy and playful are the buzzwords associated with these new looks.
Ponytails are all about attention to detail. Carefully placed and with slight quirks that are designed to catch the eye and intrigue. Once again contradictions are key, using multiple textures within the ponytail is enough to provide subtle detail. Piecing out selected strands of hair, or using asymmetric partings are just small easy ways to achieve little differences. Hair is also being “brushed back” into itself, or teased for a more dramatic result.
Tie Dyed Colour
Colour is all about layering. Not only are we seeing this come through in most of the clothes, but hair is also adopting this trend. There is a definite “tie dyed” influence in the graduation process of the colour work. Colours are more multi-toned and block in appearance. Very different to your traditional foil highlights! Playful bright tones are designed to make the hair “pop” and become an instant, yet wearable statement.
The chilly weather is the enemy of luscious looking hair! Follow these easy hair care tips to tame your mane at winter.
1. Limp locks are a definite no-no. Fine and limp hair still requires conditioning, although just keep it to the mid-lengths and ends of the hair. Use a bodybuilding product or thickening product like volumising mousse to help pump up and promote stability within your style.
2. Anti Flat shampoo combined with Moisture Therapy conditioner works wonders on fine and limp hair. To create more texture rather than height use texturising spray for a more lived in and gritty feel.
3. Course, dry, or damaged hair is going to need a little more TLC and conditioning. The trick is combining Moisture Therapy shampoo and Silky and Straight conditioner, leave the conditioner in for 3-5 minutes and then rinse. Use a bodybuilding aid with extra moisturisers like the volume booster Mousse to whip that hair back into full flow.
