Bad Hair Days? Not this year!!
Hey everyone!! So far we've had a fabulous winter! Feeling like maybe your hair is not so fabulous though, need some new ideas for your style? No worries, I'm here to help you through those "bad hair days"!!
New York's fashion week is a great place for spotting the top 2012 hair trends! This season minimalism and natural beauty took over the catwalk in hair fashion....great news for all of us who don't have a personal stylist! Simple, no fuss styles are huge right now! Sleek ponytails and chignons, in all kinds of variations, artful braids/twists and beachy waves topped the list of must have hair for 2012!
Sleek ponytails are so simple! This style can be created in wet or dry hair, use a large paddle brush to smooth the hair into a ponytail, fasten with a large hair tie and finish with Redken Vinyl Glam 02 to amp up the shine!!
Chignons are just as easy... Side or center part your hair, tie back into a sleek ponytail in the nape of the neck, make a not with the hair and fasten with bobby pins or get creative and twist up small or larger pieces and pin into place! Try this look set off to one side for a formal evening look!
Braids/Twists are super hot right now!! So even if you aren't the best at braiding, this will be a quick fix for a no fuss style! Simply do a basic 3 strand braid or herringbone braid starting in the nape of your neck, and fasten with a small clear hair tie! Try Redken Wool Shake 08 to tease the hair and give it that undone, disheveled look!! I also love this style coming to one side over your shoulder! In shorter hair try a stylish braid in your fringe area!
Wanna know a simple way to create those messy beach waves? Use Redken Tousle Whip 04 through damp hair, place into a bun, wait for it to dry, and then let hair down or blow dry on low after product is in with just your fingers to style! On dry hair grab your largest barrel curling iron, for long hair a 1.25" works great or a 1" iron for hair above the shoulders. Take large sections and curl away from the face, use Redken Radiant Sea Spray to give it that beachy textured look!!
I haven't forgotten about all of you short haired beauties out there!
Coming back from the roaring 20's, wear a sleek side part with your hair tucked behind your ears or tuck one side, adding a slight finger wave is great for an evening look! To acheive this look use Redken Hardwear 16 Gel in wet hair.
Dress up any of these looks with a jeweled headband or hairpiece like Michelle Williams wore for the Golden Globes!
How about giving your color a little sun kissed glow? We've been seeing this trend on the red carpet and in fashion magazines but might not have even noticed! The "Ombre" look took over in 2011 and is still huge for 2014! Ombre comes from the french word meaning shaded or shading. Its that look as if you just came from the beach, darker in the roots through the mid-shaft and gradually fading lighter from the mid-shaft into the ends! This look is super low maintenance and a perfect way to brighten up your color for spring! It can be done more or less dramatic and in a variety of tones from gold, copper, and caramel to platinum blonde! Hope this gave you some inspiration to try something new with your hair!
