LOOK 1: Free Flowing – As seen at Jasper Conran and Peter Pilotto
This look is all about embracing your inner teenage girl, with a bit of a ‘90s feel to it. Its youthful and low maintenance and works best on straight or slightly wavy hair. Get this look by using the right products before blow-drying we recommend as REDKEN Satin Wear 2 as it offers minimal hold, but reduces frizz and friction. Blow-dry your hair down, we don’t want any body at the roots! A quick blast of hair spray on the parting will help keep it in place if you are not used to a centre parting.
LOOK 2: Wild Curls – As seen at Sister by Sibling
We love this look! Mad and messy curls thrown off the face by backcombing and hair spray. It allows your make up to do the talking but is still a strong, designed style. Achieve this look by drying your hair using a volumising blow dry product, such as REDKEN Rootful 06 at the roots. Curl your hair using a wand or straightening irons and tease it out to give it a more natural look. Starting at the crown, gently backcomb small sections and keep going until you get to the front. Smooth over with a bristle brush and spray spray spray! You can make this as big or as subtle as you feel.
LOOK 3: Wet Look – As seen at House of Holland and Julien Macdonald
We’ve seen a lot of this in the past, but its never quite made the streets. We think this is the perfect style for summer – it keeps the hair off the face and lets face it, looks really, really cool. Start by brushing your hair right back and get your hands on a strong hold gel to achieve the effect. At House of Holland, hairstylists kept the ends of the hair very natural (easy for those of us lucky enough to see the sun this summer), but at Julien Macdonald, the ends were kept very sleek and shiny. It’s up to you how you want to work it!
LOOK 4: Messy Updo – As seen at Tom Ford
This look works best on “day old hair”. You want it to look messy, after all! A quick back comb in the mid section of the hair will give you body at the top. At the back, just pin, pin and pin. The whole point of this is to look dishevelled and undone. Don’t worry about wispy bits around your face – lots of hairspray will keep them in place.
LOOK 5: Side Glam – As seen at Daks
This look is a deep side parting tucked behind the ear. The hair itself is glossy and smooth and you will need a serum to get this shine, or a spritz of a spray such as REDKEN Shine Flash. Tuck the hair behind the ears on both sides to make this look more grown up. If you like, you can pin your tresses behind the ear until you leave the house to “train” your hair to stay in place. A little hair spray on your parting will help keep it where you want it.
LOOK 6: Long Plait – As seen at Temperley London
Not just for children you know! We love this look and recommend doing it on almost fully dry hair as it will be easier to plait. It’s perfect for when you are under pressure first thing in the morning. Start at the side of your head, swinging your hair over the shoulder over which is falls most naturally. When you get as close as you can to the end, tie with a small hair tie and loosen bits of the plait to make it wider and more grown up. If you are feeling adventurous, why not try a fishtail plait? The best thing about this look is at 5pm, just take it out and add a bit of a texturising spray and you’ve got yourself some waves!
LOOK 7: Hello Jerry Hall! – As seen at Lucas Nascimento and Vivienne Westwood
We’ve seen so much ‘90s influence on the catwalks that we were a bit shocked (and delighted!) to see the ‘80s pop up a few times. In homage to Jerry Hall, we saw a lot of side-swept hair, cascading down one side. Curls were kept very smooth and sleek. Achieve this by curling your hair using a wand and brushing it out.
