Hairstyling this season has a purpose. Clean and finished are the themes for this seasons styling looks. Choose a new look from the list of hair styles below.
This seasons looks reflected the classic look with a softer shape. Very clean but still not the tight librarian. This was a popular look in the Paris shows this season.
The bun is a variation of the Chignon (hair knot).
This is a beautiful look that is polished but not too tight to the head. Has a professional but fashionable look that with a little practice is easy to re-create. This look was shown at the Calvin Klein show this season.
Start by flat ironing the hair. Gather the hair medium to low in the back of the head into a ponytail. Create the smooth chignon and pin with bobby pins. Spray your hands with working hairspray and run them over the surface of the shape in the direction that the hair was placed in ponytail. This will give you that polished look for that fabulous Flat ironed Chignon.
The classic bun is a very clean and crisp look. Tight ponytail low to medium placed on the back of the head. The bun itself is so clean and structured that it looks wet. The Classic Bun is great for a formal occasion or to add class to an everyday look. A great example of this was from the Chado Ralpho Rucci shows this season.
First put your hair in a ponytail, high or low will do. Then twist your hair, hold it like that, and wrap it around the base of your ponytail (where the elastic is). Then secure it with another elastic and a few bobby pins. We recommend getting small and large bobby pins for extra security.
Depending on the look you are going for, you can either do the initial ponytail tight, loose, or off-center. You can even spice it up a little and backcomb your hair with a little texturizing mousse and do everything loosely for a wonderfully feminine chignon.
You can even choose to use Bows, Pins, or hair bands. If you are wearing this hairstyle for a wedding or an evening event, there are many fancy hair accessories you can use to dress it up.
The Pompadour is an edgy look possibly suited for those of you who are wearing the “Half Shaved” look this season. Inspired from the signature Elvis look. Waxes and crème styling products with a stronger hold will work great in creating this look. With some you may have to tease the front of the hair and pin it in place to get that exaggerated shape of the pompadour.
Always a staple in each season’s looks are curls or waves. Loose with deliberate direction. Polished with a natural feel to the locks. If you are going to wear your hair long this season try this look for a versatile softness to your overall image. Great look for an everyday style or something quick before a night out with the ladies.
To get the look use a larger iron 1” to 1.5” and wrap the hair in a spiral pattern just to create a soft bend in the hair. Taylor Momsen wore this look during Fashion week.
For those of you with beautiful bone structure and you want to get a temporary lift from a hairstyle try the sleek high ponytail. This look was shown at the Alexander Wang show this season.
To get the look tip your head upside down and while gathering all of your hair into a ponytail fastener high on top of the head. After the ponytail is secure, spray a wet or working hairspray into your hands and while the product is still damp run your hands over the hair in the same direction you did when gathering it into the ponytail. This will keep the look Sleek and tame all the fly aways.
This style is a quick alternative to the complete up do that has all of the hair off of the face. A good look if you are not ready to part with all of that length for an evening. Some great examples were shown at the DKNY shows this season.
To get the ½ up style gather the hair in front of the head just above the ears into a ponytail medium to higher in the back of the head. Place it into a ponytail or twist into a chignon in the back of the head. Fasten into place with a few bobby pins.
