AW14 Trend Report
Although Fall/Winter is already in full swing we thought it would be best to give you all a quick recap on the hair trends everyone is talking about this season.
The high-shine Ponytail- Available in all shapes and sizes this Winter from the wrapped versions at Fendi to the baubles at Valentino, this isn’t a trend to brush to the side. Other varieties were also present at Derek Lam, Jonathan Saunders, Kenzo, Hugo Boss and Balmain.
The Ballerina Chignon- Whether painstakingly neat or artfully dishevelled, high buns inspired by ﬂedgling ballerinas were all the rage on the autumn runways by Designers Diane Von Furstenburg, Lanvin, Prada and Roberto Cavalli.
My favourite were seen at D&G where the hair was ﬁnished in a rough organic texture and then bound into a woven chignon around the nape.
The Sweeping Fringe- An easy look to get on board with this season, replicate the bangs seen at Alexander Wang, Rodarte, Vera Wang and Giles by creating an extra low, side parting and bringing hair over to one side. If your bangs aren’t long enough the simply secure with pins like the girls at Rodarte.
The Poker Straight- as seen at Topshop Unique, Marc Jacobs, Prabal Gurung, Versace and Tom Ford. At Cloud Nine, our irons have mineral infused plates which gives hair ﬂawless shine, perfect for nailing this trend.
The Matte Eﬀect- Shine was kept to a minimum with an emphasis on the dry, scratchy texture. Designers showcasing this trend include Victoria Beckham, Marni, Rag & Bone, Gucci, Jason Wu, Dries Van Noten and Giles.
The Cornrow Braid- Not the easiest to pull oﬀ but the girls who walked for Marchesa, Alexander Mcqueen and DKNY certainly knew how to.
The Mermaid Wave- Winter’s most feminine hair trend this year was seen at Chloe, Rodarte, Giorgio Armani and Stella McCartney. Waves tick all the boxes for me, not matter what season. For a contemporary ﬁnish; brush through and limit the hairspray.
