It’s here. Our mornings are starting to feel a little bit more difficult and there is a cold breeze in the air, that’s making us rush to dig out our big coats and see if we’ve got a higher tog duvet hanging about anywhere. The excitement of placing a big A/W clothing haul, bonfire night and mulled wine are about the only things that we currently have to motivate us through these dark months…until now! Enter project A/W hair… or Project Alchemy as we’re calling it! These are our top ten looks, fresh of the runway, that will see you through even the darkest and coldest of winter months, ensuring you look and feel absolutely fabulous!
The Messy Bun – Chanel
All we’re saying is, YOU ARE WELCOME! Nothing quite says “let’s make something quick and easy high fashion” like a messy bun. Big thanks to Chanel for allowing us to look our most dishevelled publicly acceptable.
The Soft Wave – Balmain
Our Waving Wand will be your new best friend if you want to achieve this soft body and bounce through your hair this Winter. Quick and effortless styling meaning we can all hit snooze a couple times more.
The Slicked Pony – Off-White
The simple, the glamourous, the timeless. Simply brushing all your hair back into a low pony will forever be chic. This simple look will not only save you time in the morning but also utilise your unwashed hair in the best possible way!
The Hair Accessory – Zadig&Voltaire
A firm favourite of any girl who grew up in the 80’s/90’s. The hair accessory is making a BIG comeback this A/W, the perfect way to quickly jazz up an otherwise simple hairstyle, or throw some diamond hairslides into the mix and be EXTRA.
The Twisted Pony – Palmer Harding
This is something that looks like it took 9 hours, but actually took 5 minutes. Simply tie your hair back into a ponytail, twist your pony and twist it back on itself in the opposite direction before securing back with an elastic.
The Curtain Bang
The fringe is back. Textured bangs that fall neatly either side of your face paired with a high ponytail or messy bun are reminiscent of the Brigitte Bardot iconic days. If you’ve just woken up or in a rush to get out of the door just slick back your hair into a high pony, pull your fringe down and add texture for that effortless but chic look.
The 80’s Neon – Jeremy Scott
One for the bold, or for those of you who would invest in a wig. 80’s Neon is showing a massive trend in all walks of A/W with lime green jumpers and bright coloured hair swooping into our lives. You’re guaranteed to add some sunshine into any drizzly day with these vibrant looks!
The Super Sleek – Dion Lee
The new version of poker straight. Pushing your hair back behind your ears and exaggerating a side part will add additional glamour to this otherwise simple look.
Dirty Blonde – Bleach London
Gone are the days of getting your hair as white as possible without your hair snapping off from a chemical haircut! Golden hues are the hottest A-lister trend. Keep your hair dark at the root and fading down into warmer dirty blonde locks.
The new grey. With glass hair taking the hair industry by storm it’s opened us up into shinier more sparkly versions of the grey hair trend we saw like mad last year! The perfect hair colour if you’re wanting to be a little braver, but that 80’s neon just aint your vibe!
