Brrrrrrrrrr-ing on the styles!
As much as I hate to say it, the gloomiest, most unwelcome time of year has come around again. While I’m all for the wardrobe renovation and snugly jumpers, I’m not so keen on the runny noses and freezing hands! However, with the arrival of winter comes the arrival of a new season of hair styles – here we go!
The best news is, winter 2011/2012 is definitely the season of the short hair – a look than anyone can achieve! Not having to wait for months for hair growth, this winter welcomes in choppy haircuts and pixie crops with a sassy twist.
Whether you’re rushed off your feet or have some extra time on your hands, take some tips from the catwalk and find the perfect short style for you. For example, Cacheral and Balmain show how to keep messy hair in style with some ruffled, cropped do’s -
while Oscar de la Renta and Hermes understand that some ladies prefer to silk the hair down in a side parting with some gel to tame the fly-aways –
so always do your research!
For those who aren’t as open to the chop as others, Isabel Marant has the answer for you.
Showing the ‘mid-cut’, Marant kept the girly flair to the boyish cut by keeping the hair slightly longer but less tame, to keep the element of attitude to the look.
If you prefer to keep the length to your hair, the catwalk also has the answers for you. Take inspiration from the most well loved names in fashion and adopt the bun – the perfect up-do for any occasion! Dolce and Gabanna show how to keep it simple in a low, messy bun with a wind-swept front appearance, while Carolina Herrera show how to keep the low bun in tact with extra grips and gel for a more structured look.
Badgley Mischka go all out on the bun with a low down style with sides braided back and a jewelled parting for that extra special occasion, while Chanel caters for those of us not brave enough to keep the face bare by showing how to keep some hair out of the bun but keep it sweet with the side- style.
Make sure your not caught out this winter – always look hot no matter how cold it is outside!
