This season, the catwalks were flooded with wearable looks that transfer well to everyday ‘dos. Now is most definitely the time to start playing with messy buns, low ponies and double knots. Make a summer statement by simply adding a captivating accessory. If you’re feeling a little more adventurous, bring out your creative side with criss-cross braids and plaits or perhaps a retro up-do.
Messy ‘dos in the form of loose buns and no-fuss ponies featured heavily at Christopher Kane, Jil Sander and Dior. Keep the hair glossy with an oil and tie low at the nape of the neck. For this look, loose strands and flyaways are a GOOD thing.
If rock ‘n roll is more your thing, Stella McCartney and Roberto Cavalli sported just-got-out-of-bed hair. Embrace your natural waves or tong random sections of hair using a wand and backcomb a few strands to keep the messy texture.
The Wet Look was back at Giambattista Valli where gel was applied to the roots and combed back for a slick, modern finish.
Plaits and Braids
A summer classic, plaits and braids were a little more creative this year, with fishtail braids and interlocking twists as seen at Marchesa.
The Sixties made a comeback at Moschino featuring the classic beehive. The up-do took on a more modern twist at Marc Jacobs, with volume at the roots and hair swept to one side.
Twists, Loops and Knots
An alternative to the traditional up-do, low ponytails and chignons were wrapped into a number of styles at Chanel and Marni. They were looped back on themselves at Chloe and twisted into round ballet buns and double knots elsewhere. Seal yours with an anti-frizz spray and accessorise with pearls!
Chanel’s pearls, D&G’s headscarf’s, Balenciaga’s metal crowns and Louis Vuitton’s satin bows were amongst the beautiful array of hair decorations this season.
