If you’ve been growing your hair out for a while, then it’s time to show it off! Here’s a sneak peak at the hottest new long hairstyles for Spring 2009, followed by hair styling indications to take the trend and make it yours. Get inspired straight from the runway!
Hair Trend No 1 – Big Volume
Influenced by the disco era, these long curls are back with a slightly fluffy finish. Take a clue from DSquared2 or Gucci, by leaving roots smooth and waving the mid-lengths. Heated rollers are best for creating voluminous, big waves. Position large rollers towards the root for real height or use a small roller for subtle volume and smaller, tighter curls.
Hair Trend No 2 – Boho Texture
Boho waves are loved by rock chick and beach babes alike, but the carefree scrunched locks are a great look for going out. If you’ve got fine hair, the disheveled texture is easy to create with styling products, while thicker hair need encouragement from a diffuser to get textured-up.
Use a diffuser to create boho waves; enhance hair’s kink by blow-drying with a diffuser attachment.
Hair Trend No 3 – Romantic Ripples
Romantic waves scream retro, but have been made modern by celebrities wearing them so well. Finger waves suit best medium-to-fine hair types, but suit all lengths. Get your own style of waves by running a flat iron through your hair as though curling a ribbon.
Hair Trend No 4 – Hollywood Waves
It’s the ultimate in glamour and should be glossy, gorgeous and luxurious.
If you’ve got straight hair, try out different tools to achieve that high-maintenance look. If you’ve got already curly hair, work with your natural texture by using curl definer products. You can get more precise, tighter curls by using a curling iron. Again, adjust the size of the barrel according to desired wave size.
