2014 pays homage to some old school hairstyles with a modern twist, from the catwalk to the streets, we are taking a look at what’s hot for this year’s hair style files.
A dishevelled updo with plenty of loose tangles - this look is pretty easy to create, whether it be a French roll, top bun or French twists, ensuring you leave out a few wispy strands at the front (curling with an 1 inch curling iron) will create this messy wonder.
Old world braids:
The fish plait made such an epic comeback last year; this year’s spin off is ALL things braids. Anything goes as long as there’s some kind of crossover motion involved. A messy plait resembling a peasant girl in the renaissance or a braided headband similar to a 70’s hippie, spring and summer is all about the ‘Old World Braids’.
All things gold:
Long exaggerated pony tails, wet look sweep backs and messy updo’s, all very different styles with an added futuristic twist... the addition of GOLD. Whether it be a gold headband, metal hair tie or gold flakes for effect, this seasons hottest accessory for hair is accents of gold.
Last season the ordinary ‘Ponytail’ made its debut however, this season it is back with a vengeance; think large quiffs, section rolls and off the wall Mohawks. Ponytails just got interesting.
Choppy pageboy wigs:
Wigs were all over the catwalks this season, not just any wigs though.. choppy bowl shaped, asymmetrical cut wigs. Encompassing the free and boyish look, the jagged cuts and bangs that look self-done seem to be the current phase.
They may be the oldest accessory in the book, however this season sees a welcomed comeback to an all time epic hair accessory; ‘Flowers’. From floral crowns, statement flower pins and scatters of tiny blossoms on low, messy ponytails, this summer welcomes the classic accessory back with open arms, or should we say blooms!
