Spring Hairspiration

Crimped Craze

HairS2

The 80’s made a comeback to the runway, as models showcased a mane of crimped locks at the Betsey Johnson show. Recurring at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival Brisbane, models from the Queensland Swimwear Company sported straightly styled roots with a pronounced crimp occurring at eyelevel. Sparking an effortlessly cool and casual air, this look is easy to obtain and allows for the excuse of wearing tightly braided cornrows. Warning, while this trend has survived the 80’s hotlist, leg warmers is still a big fashion don’t!

Style Tip:

Vidal Sassoon’s Total Crimp has made it onto the wish list for this month. Not only is this styler completely affordable, its energetic teal colour will have you excited to test this hair trend. Remember to crimp small sections of the hair at a time to get the most pronounced zig-zag effect.

Strong Bangs

HairS3

Full textured and lengthy bangs were all the rage at Karen Walker’s spring collection. For once bangs did not appear to be straightened and instead sat softly across the models forehead, drawing upon feminine influences. With a key emphasis on a dramatic, bold fringe, remaining hair was styled down in relaxed, loose waves. This look will thrive in the spring season as its versatility transcends from day to night and also contains the right amount of balance between modern trends and classic femininity. 

Style Tip:

While this trend might look effortlessly chic, this is a style that does need regular maintenance. Keep trims frequent and invest in a round brush to achieve volume through blow-drying. We recommend Stefan’s Celebrity Styling Blow Drying Brush, $34.95.

Short Crops

HairS4

In defiance to the length and volume surrounding spring, we can see an outbreak of short crops in the celebrity world. From Miley Cyrus’s multi-textured new do, to Anne Hathaway’s new pixi cut, short and sculpted is in for spring. On the runway, inspiration is abundant at the Philsophy di Alberta Ferretti spring show, where models fashioned edgy, boyish hairstyles, accentuating facial features. 

Style Tip:

This is the perfect style for increasing volume in fine hair with little maintenance needed. Try Redken’s Volume Rootful 06 to give roots extra volume. While hair is damp, spray Volume Rootful 06 directly onto roots and blow dry with a round brush for optimal results. As a finishing touch apply Redken’s Texture Wax Blast 10 to dry hair, working through with fingertips to observe a texturised difference.
