As always, the new season means new trends. And what better time than post-summer September to adopt a new haircut. Here’s a look at some of the key trends to come this season. The wet look.
This ever present trend involves a mixture of two effects, and it’s becoming more popular by the minute. But for September 2013, the wet look features some subtle variations. Go the whole hog with gel or styling wax
throughout your hair, or keep it simple with a centre parting
teamed with hair slicked down on either side of the face. 50s volume.
This season, we’re nostalgic for the old days with well-defined, full-bodied curls
. Worthy of the most glamorous Hollywood stars, this hairstyle involves backcombing your hair
and working it into rollers for all-out volume. For maximum hold, apply a layer of hairspray
. The casual tomboy cut.
When it comes to women’s hairstyles, this trend seems to hold all the cards. We’re talking short, very short. On the Marc Jacobs catwalk, models are sporting the destructured tomboy cut
. Hair is kept long at the nape of the neck and worn roughed up, held in place with a helping of gel
. The body-boosted ponytail.
While in previous seasons the ponytail has been worn slick and straight, this winter things are heading the opposite way. For an ultra on-trend hairstyle, go for a ponytail body-boosted at the roots. To do this, backcomb your lengths and tie your hair into a high ponytail. Hold the style in place with hairspray. The centre-parted tousled bob.
This winter once again, hair is wavy
. The trend of choice for anyone looking for a hairstyle that’s both simple to create and easy to look after. For a bohemian, feminine result, part your hair in the middle for a symmetrical result.
