Find inspiration for your wintry looks just taking a glimpse at the latest trends spotted on the runways. From loose buns and chic top knots to braids, girly ponytails and glamorous curls, you can shine through the festive season with these quick and easy hairstyles. This is the right moment when every girl wants to steal the spotlight with impeccable outfits and oh-so-lovely locks.
Have fun while styling your hair this season! It is not necessary to reach perfection but opt instead for slightly messy yet dressy hairstyles. Think imperfect, relaxed buns as seen at Chanel or Yigal Azrouël, try an ever-elegant chignon (Dolce & Gabbana) or a gorgeous top knot (Donna Karan).
Wearing an eye-catching accessory is one of the easiest ways to refresh and glam up your ‘do. In order to get the lovely and romantic chignon spotted at Chanel, start by creating a side parting, bring your hair to one side at the back of the head and roll it into a bun. Use pins to secure it and add a precious hair jewelry for maximum effect.
The simple braid will always remain a trendy hairstyle due to its incredible versatility and practicality. In fact, this is one of the easiest styles you can achieve in an instant and still look cool and uber-feminine. Lately, the timeless braid has been spotted everywhere from catwalks to a myriad of red carpet events proving that it can also be a great option for special occasions. With the party season just around the corner, it is important to start choosing a fab hairstyle. And a braided hairstyle is one good option to take into consideration. Lanvin and Emilio Pucci certainly know how to make a simple braid look elegant and sexy. Keep it simple and healthy!
Girls who are constantly in a hurry find it rather hard to spend time styling their hair. However, there are certain quick and easy hairstyles that require minimum amount of effort, skills and tools. Moreover, they look stunning and also work surprisingly well for formal events. And one good example in this sense is the already classic ponytail. With just a few adjustments, the pony can be updated in no time so it exudes chicness and elegance. One of the simplest tricks to add a festive-appropriate touch to your pony is to take a hair section and wrap it around the pony’s base (Christian Cota, BCBG Max Azria, Gucci, Louis Vuitton).
Another quick and easy hairstyle that falls soft and sexy is the famous half updo. Try a voluminous style with luscious tresses as seen at Nina Ricci or an effortless approach as spotted at Giorgio Armani. Keep in mind to leave a few flyaways framing your face for a sexy vibe. You can also opt for a more interesting styling with a rugged texture (Rodarte). Get the look by twisting a face-framing section into a loose spiral across the forehead and pin it at the back of the head. Or, go for a flirty yet elegant braided half updo (Nanette Lepore).
Another trend that keeps coming back season after season is the glamorous wavy and curly style. In fact, curls have the sensational power to turn every look into a luxurious, wow-worthy appearance (Oscar de la Renta, Zac Posen). Start by sectioning your hair and use a curling iron to create easy, sexy waves. If you want a tousled finish, curl hair in different directions. Gently run fingers through the curls to break them up and apply some hair spray.
