5 runway looks to try this season
With autumn fast approaching, we’ll soon be trading our flip flops, sleeveless shirts and summer dresses for rain boots, knit trousers and trench coats. But our transition to fall would not be complete without hair to match. Inspired by the looks we saw on the runway this season, and the celebrities who debuted them on and off the red carpet, here are five of our fave hairdos for fall.
This season, braids are all the rage. School girls won’t be the only ones sporting pigtails come fall, as the classic look gets a grown-up makeover.
Loose, undone braids, as seen on the runway at Pucci, add messy yet sophisticated flair, while side braids call to mind the romanticism of a bygone era.
Celebs have taken a liking to the milkmaid braid. The elegant braided ‘do as seen at Rachel Roy is a popular hairstyle, with actress Jessica Alba sporting her version of the whimsical updo at this year’s Orange British Academy Film Awards.
Tip: A simple hairdo to replicate, simply part the hair down the middle, divide the hair into two braids, and wrap the pigtails around the head, securing both up and over the crown with bobby pins.
Whether you sport long or short hair, parting your mane makes for a chic look this season.
The deep side-part, as seen at Akris, is de rigueur for added cool. Scottish actress Tilda Swinton sported a variation of the look at the Bafta Awards this year.
Tip: Part your hair to the side and slick down with a dab of gel or mousse. If you’re feeling daring, leave some hair on the sides in front of your ears to create a look complete with sideburns.
The slicked-back high ponytail is esentially a traditional ponytail with a futuristic twist. The look was apparent on the runway at Marc Jacobs and fashion-forward reality starlet Kim Kardashian was seen sporting the sleek fall updo on many occasions this summer.
Tip: To get the look, pull each strand through a flat iron, gather your hair into a ponytail high up on the crown of your head with a hair band. Pull out one strand and wrap it around the hair band, and secure with hair pins. For that ultra-sleek look, a gloss spray is a must!
Chignons are a no-fail timeless look, and this year, the chignon gets a major lift! For fall, the classic bun rests high up on the crown of the head and the bigger, the better.
The look debuted on the runway at Donna Karan and quickly caught on in Tinseltown, with celebs like Sara Jessica Parker, Kate Bosworth, and Kirsten Dunst sporting the high-rise ballerina bun.
Tip: Sweep hair up in a high ponytail gathered with an elastic band and pin strands in a chignon around the band. Use a hair ring or hair bun for added volume, and moisturizing spray for extra shine.
As models strutting down the runway at Ruffian demonstrated, hair raising is the name of the game.
While the pompadours on the catwalks weren’t short on volume, model and actress Rosie Huntington Whitely sported a more subdued, modern take with a center part and a teased pomp high up on the crown at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards.
A playful and youthful updo, the pompadour is the retro chic look of the season.
Tip: Brush hair to the very top of the crown, creating an upright circular bun. Apply hairspray generously to provide hold and secure with hairpins.
