2013 is a year of drama, of excess and wow-factors. So far, we’ve has already seen stunning and innovative hair sent down the runways at the hottest fashion shows worldwide. There is inspiring versatility across the current aesthetic, which draws heavily on nostalgic favourites being given a revamp. In our first Organika Hair blog, we highlight the key trends for the season from recent fashion weeks – including our very own L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival.
The raw textured ponytail featured heavily throughout LMFF, inspired by iconic fashion houses such as Calvin Klein and Chloe. This sexy, confident look will elevate any outfit and is easy to achieve at home.
Winter gives a lot of love to sizable 1960’s hairstyles – from bouffant to beyond – across the international runways this season. This big, voluminous hair can be seen as a reflection of women’s empowerment during this era of change. Is a return to big hair another assertion of feminism? In any case – when it comes to the beehive, bigger is better!
Ready for a big trim? Bob hairstyles are making their mark, from high-fashion to the bloggerazzi. Highlighting the trend towards androgyny, the bob has appeared in chin length, fringed versions and shoulder sweeping forms. There’s no better time to consider the chop to create a playful, fresh and liberating new look.
The classic French roll has received an overhaul this season, with texture being the main focus. This regal style crowns any outfit with an elegant vintage vibe that was captured on runways for Valentino and Chanel.
The ‘wet look’ was huge on runways last year, and has maintained its prominence in 2013. The textured wet ponytail is a key focus, but this trend appears in a range of guises – from slick and pulled back to side-swept and textured. This is the kind of high-fash wet hair that’s you’re encouraged to leave the house wearing!
It appears that even models have bad hair days – and have been seen hiding their locks under hair exciting accessories on both Australian and international runways. Style up your own day-two (or day-three) hair with bright sporty headbands, brass sculptured branches worn as crowns, oversized fabric flowers, pretty pearls and even impossibly chic beekeeper inspired head wear from Alexander McQueen. The best part of this eye-catching decorative look? It requires minimal effort – simply attach and go!
