Fashion Week unveiled yet another set of hairstyle trends to draw inspiration from in he upcoming season. Here are some looks from the most influential spring 2014 runway shows that bring fresh new ideas for your everyday hair styling.
Spring 2014 Hairstyle Trends: Braids
Here’s a look that is here to stay! Braids are very playful and feminine and combined with a great outfit, they will simply look outstanding. For the Rebecca Minkoff show, hair stylists were totally inspired by the Mexican culture, the center image being Frida Kahlo. Also, for the Calla Paris collection, stylists opted for some fun fishtail braids threaded with neon ribbons that perfectly outlined the collection’s inspiration: the ’90s surf culture.
Spring 2014 Hairstyle Trends: Ponytails
Another trendy hairstyle for next spring, the ponytail, has been reinterpreted by stylists for Fashion Week. From Cushnie et Ochs stylist Rodney Cultler’s sleek approach to using thick pieces of leather to wrap the ponytail at Helmut Lang, here are just a few ways stylists propose use to rock this trend.
Spring 2014 Hairstyle Trends: Wet Look Locks
If you started to miss the beach, you can get into the atmosphere with this lovely look. Kérastase stylist Odile Gilbert decided to pull the front sections of the hair over the ears. She then tied them back and slicked the top with gel. Redken’s hairstylist Guido Palau decided to opt for a structural look for the Rag & Bone show. He decided to harden the top with gel and create soft waves at the bottom.
Spring 2014 Hairstyle Trends: Soft Waves
The ’90s are back! Just look at Alexander Wang’s spring 2014 show. It was inspired by that sexy decade when we tried to copy cool girls’ hairstyles. Guido Palau used hairspray and a curling wand in order to create some texture.
For the BCBG show, models flaunted a center part and soft waves and they looked gorgeous and fresh. The key to creating soft and natural waves is to use a very light touch when handling the curling iron.
Spring 2014 Hairstyle Trends: Glamorous Rolls
This ’20s inspired look was recreated by hairstylist Peter Gray for the Badgley Mischka show. He first created a horizontal braid that he hid at the nap of the neck, which served as a base for the vintage rolls. He then added texture to the model’s hair and started doing the rolls.
Spring 2014 Hairstyle Trends: Double French Twist
This lovely hairstyle could be seen at the Carolina Herrera’s show. The hairstylist parted the hair and divided it into two sections thus creating a beautiful and structural updo.
