The latest hair trends from the catwalk to the sidewalk
Dario Di Tirro, styling director at Luc Espace
Not every hairstyle on the runway becomes a trend. Hairstyles will always come down to a number of things – hair type, length, face shape and personal preference – but that doesn’t mean we can’t look to the fashion world for inspiration and new ideas.
This season we’ll be searching for hairstyles that feel fresh and on-point, but without having to spend hours in front of the mirror each morning. Soft, flowing waves aren’t a new thing, yet on the latest runways they managed to recapture our imagination when worn with new attitude. Soft waved hairstyles present themselves as entirely effortless; these aren’t Hollywood perfect waves, but waves with a bit of texture and tousle, worn either with a side part or center part, and perfect for both shorter and longer hair.
One of the most popular and easy-to-do looks at the moment is the milkmaid braid. Whether capturing innocence or refinement, this hairstyle knows how to make an outfit stand out. Multiple interpretations were shown on the runway: from the messy and folkish to classic.
Hair isn’t all about careful attention to detail. There are many cases in the salon where we find ourselves creating shape and, soon after blowdrying the hair, going back and deconstructing the entire look to give the client a sense of lightness and freshness. This season, there are plenty of ways to play with your hair and look sexy. You can make a simple hairstyle look more dramatic and impressive without being late for the apéritif.
Thinking of playing colour chameleon this season? Get some inspiration from these cool hair hues!
Red is still hot for hair colour, with strong, warm rust shades and russet coppers with incredible depth and richness. Cooler reds are more crimson, in red rose or bright scarlet shades – think Christina Hendricks and Florence Welch.
Super dark browns and inky petrol blacks will be seen a lot this season. Darker shades will be added in small sections to create dimension and show texture. Consider shades of chocolate, burnt caramel and coffee – think Katy Perry and Megan Fox.
Cooler blondes are looking crisp and clean, with white blonde dominating the colour spectrum. Warmer blondes are more marigold and honey - think Michelle Williams and Gwyneth Paltrow.
Soft iridescent pinks, silvery blues, subtle peach and turquoise - think Ke$ha at the 2013 American Music Awards and Lady Gaga.
