Look at the latest catwalk close-ups and see how celebrities are styling their hair!
Pick up a fashion magazine and leaf through to find some classy, up-to-date looks. Be radical, cut out a photo you like and take it to your hairdresser. There’s no quicker way to looking good than being brave and taking risks.
Some of the latest and trendiest hairstyles are actually vintage hair looks. As always, trends come back around, and it’s no different with hair. Style is returning to a more classic, chic look, reminiscent of the glamorous fifties. Big rollered hair is back with a vengeance as are big curly bobs in the style of Marilyn Monroe.
Latest Hair Styles
- Braids or Plaits – Be adventurous and experimental with the type of plaits you create. Twist them, wrap them and pin them in different directions. Try a french braid, mermaid braid, milkmaid/heidi braids or a fishtail braid. Try different sizes and start in different places, wrap it into a chignon, or pin it like an Alice band. One of our favorite new hair styles is definitely the big side plait, as seen on the PPQ catwalk.
- Beach Waves – Keep a spritzer of salt water near you at all times to recreate this look. Sleep on damp hair if you hair has a natural wave, or if it’s naturally curly or straight sleep in french braids to create a beautiful wave the next day. Keep them looking beachy, by messing and teasing them a little bit.
- Big Curls – Returning to a 70s inspired volume, big and sleek hair is super sexy this season. Blow dry hair round a big barreled brush and tong any strays. Or pop in your heated rollers at breakfast time so they are ready to remove before you leave and reveal gorgeous big curls.
The New Haircuts
Short, sharp bobs are elegant and slightly retro. Vintage inspired haircuts have longevity and timeless elegance. Dating back to women’s liberation and the 1920s, this look is not for the faint of heart.
The long bob has been seen on Gwyneth Paltrow, Rihanna and Jessica Simpson. It is a very wearable cut and can be worn either straight or curly. It’s still long enough to be pinned back and pulled up into a ponytail.
Block fringes are definitely still in style thanks to Zooey Deschanel’s hairstyle. Fringes look good both messy and straightened this season, and it’s a quick way to update any length of hair.
The New Hair Styles Accessories
A detailed Alice band is still very fashionable, and very Gossip Girl. Find one that you like, whether its plastic, fabric or elastic, and wear it with your usual everyday look for a pop of added glamor.
Find some pretty hair ties for the end of your braids this season, and some cute grips to keep curls under control. Pop to your favorite jewelers for something sparkly.
