Hairstyling this season definitely has a purpose with a theme aiming towards natural texture. Mix it up this season and choose a brand new look from the list of hair styles below.
Flat Ironed Chignon
The chignon is polished and can be worn tight or loose to the head. It’s a totally fashionable look that is easy to re-create and wear for daytime or evening. This look was shown at the Calvin Klein Fall 2010 show and looked great on all the models. To get this chic look, just flat iron the hair, pull the hair into a low ponytail while making sure to keep the hair smooth, and finish by folding hair back into itself and securing with bobby pins. Use a light hold hair spray to keep flyaways at bay.
The bun itself is clean and contemporary – not just for ballet class! The Classic Bun is perfect for all occasions as well as everyday wear. A great example of the classic bun was see on the BCBG Fall 2010 runway. The look is great for everyday wear and yet is contemporary enough for formal occasions and evenings out on the town. To style the classic bun, start by securing your hair in a ponytail with an elastic, either high or low, depending on your preference. Then simply twist your hair and hold it tight while wrapping it around the base of your ponytail (where the elastic is). Secure it with another elastic in a shade that is similar to your hair color and finish off with a few bobby pins. We recommend getting small and large bobby pins for extra security. Finish with a light hair spray to preserve your look. For fun, try accessories to create personal style and glamor.
The Pompadour is a beautiful formal look, especially taken from Fendi’s Fall 2010 show. Gel and other hair products with a stronger hold will work well in creating this hairstyle. Start by washing hair with a volumizing shampoo. Towel dry and then blow dry volume into your hair with your head upside down being sure to lift that root area. Use a volumizing mousse if you have one handy. Secure the hair up into the crown area, carefully backcomb everything up and smooth the hair a little. Finish by twisting the hair and securing with bobby pins. Don’t forget a light spritz of hair spray to hold your sexy style!
Retro Curls & Waves
Retro inspired hairstyles are going to be really hot for Fall 2010. Keep styles loose with deliberate direction and take cues from the Dior Fall 2010 runway. At Dior show, the ’30s-inspired waves were reminiscent of the Hollywood glamour of Jean Harlow. Timeless and sexy for sure! For longer hair, try softer looks like Farrah Fawcett waves. They are a great look for an everyday style or something quick before a night out with your girlfriends. To create this easy look, simply section the hair into 2 inch sections and carefully apply a medium hold texturizing product. Using a small curling iron, carefully curl the hair. As you work toward the top of your head, loosen the curls up a bit or switch to a larger curling iron. When you are finished curling all your hair, just pull and push the curl to make it look slightly tousled and then spray with a light hold hairspray.
For those of you wanting to show off your stunning features or just wanting to keep things simple, the ponytail is for you this season! This look was shown at the Louis Vuitton and Max Azria runways for Fall 2010 and is probably the easiest trend for this season. To get the look, simply gather all of your hair into a ponytail and secure with an elastic. After the ponytail is secure, spray with hairspray or use a small amount of hair gel into your hands run your hands over the hair in the same direction you did when gathering it into the ponytail. This will keep the look sleek while easily taming all the flyaways.
