Beautytrend FW2011: in the middle

A trend you can’t miss this season: the middle parting.  After seasons of no show, this classic hairdo is back again. And rightly so.  It’s simple, clean and always good to create either a casual chic or a classic look.

We’ve seen different versions at the shows. Like the ultra tight version, where no hair is allowed to stick out. Keep it all behind the ears and wear it in a tight knot or a chic ponytail low in the neck. This is also a good way to emphasize the shape of your face. The other version is more casual, keeping it loose and frisky. So if you’re not feeling so much for the big and fussy hair for December, this look might be a good option.

The times in which beach hair was cool, seem to be over. Your hair needs to be soaking wet. If you wanna follow this latest trend, that is.

Make it look short and sleek like the models’ hair at Gucci, Caroline Herrera and Kenzo. Or opt for messy like Rag & Bone and Bottega Veneta.

Throw some paint in your hair like Alexander Wang did with his girls or create the perfect (wet) bun. Whatever you do; put a lot of product in your  hair to make it look Wowing-Wet!

Beauty Trend SS2011: Right In The Middle

Going for a chique & sophisticated look? Than this middle parting is your new best friend. It also so happens to be one of the big hair trends for this summer.

Anna Sui, Blumarine, D&G, Stella McCartney, Valentino, Calvin Klein and many others gave their model a perfect middle parting. And while some of the girls wore their hair down, others combined the parting with a bun or ponytail (Blugirl, Costume, Hermes, Leonard).

This trend is great for women of all ages and can be worn tight as well as a little more loose. If you’re afraid the parting will get all messed up during the day, use some wax or hair spray to keep it in place.

Whether you’re a blonde, brown or redhead; this trend looks good with any kind of hair color. Check out our gallery below for some great examples.

Beauty Trend Report SS2011: Artistic Hair

This season the greatest fashion houses proved that you do can more with your hair than just wear it in a ponytail or a bun. The most artistic hair creations were shown on the runway.

Like the Byblos curls on top of the models’ heads, the braids at Erdem, Ungaro and CNC, or the old fashioned hairdo at Prada. Not to mentions the basket-weave hair at Alexander McQueen and the gold-sprayed curls at Dior.

Every season new hairdo’s are created by the best hair professionals in the world. Hours and hours are spend on the most artistic styles. Of course a lot of extensions, weaves and other kinds of fake hair are needed, but the result is always flawless.

A good hairdo really does complete a model’s look and besides colors, shape and print of the clothes it is often also a hairdo that can remind someone of a certain collection. And besides all that these hairstyles are a lot of fun to watch!
