Spring/Summer Hair Trends by Angel Montague-Sayers
Cloud Nine Creative Ambassador Angel Montague-Sayers gives us the low-down on her favourite catwalk-inspired hair looks for Spring/Summer 2015. From punk micro-buns to P.E ponytails – there’s a look for everyone to experiment with this season.
The Multi Top Knot
Why have one top knot when you can have four? Marc Jacobs channelled the 90s English rave culture and brought back the ‘micro-bun-mohawk’. This hairstyle worked with the attitude and style of the collection.
Angel says: “It’s easier to achieve than you think. Simply section your hair into four, tie four separate ponytails and twist to make a tight micro bun!”
Top Tip: Use a paddle brush to pull hair into high ponytails. You’ll get a much neater, more professional finish.
The P.E Ponytail
The ponytail never goes out of style; it’s the way you wear it that keeps it modern! When this hairstyle hit the runway at SS15 fashion weeks, designers including Gucci, Giambattista Valli and Alexander Wang gave the ponytail an edgy new twist, finishing it with a sharp side parting, gelled roots, or texture through the lengths.
Angel says: “Simple yet chic, this laid back and effortless ponytail is so easy to achieve. Make sure hair has a bit of texture for a contemporary finish – I wrap sections around the Cloud Nine Waving Wand to create a soft ‘kick’ in the lengths.”
Top Tip: Unlike a lot of hair-up styles, hair should be freshly washed – you want that super-soft, shiny look.
The 70’s Blow Dry
It’s no secret that the 1970s is making its mark this season, as spotted at Diane von Furstenberg. What better way to channel this trend than with the hairstyle that defined the decade – the ‘70s blow-dry!
Angel says: “Larger than life, thetrick to this style is plenty of root-lift plus texture through the lengths. This can be created using The Cloud Nine O Ultimate Set.”
Top Tip: Consider the size of roller you use. A big roller will create plenty of volume at the roots, but limited texture in the lengths. A smaller roller will create more of a curl in the lengths.
