Happy first day of spring! As the weather begins to warm up, so can your style. If Fashion Week SS17 has taught us anything, it’s that the 80’s power curl is very much alive and thriving. Gone are the days of sleek straight styles. Curls and texture are the hair trends this year and if you don’t have volume, you are missing out!
2106 may have been all about the 90s but many of the latest editorials are celebrating the 80s, suggesting that colorful, glamorous, over the top style is about to come back into fashion. The December / January issue of Vogue Paris is a case in point. Tapping Kristen Stewart for the spread, the iconic glossy pairs her striking blonde pixie cut with the brightness and pop of the current the resort and spring collections. See more images below.

When I became a hairdresser fifteen years ago roots, frizz, and flyaways were all dirty words. In the early 2000s hair was sleek and straight. It was piecey and sometimes even greasy, but never unkempt. But in recent years frizz has come back in vogue. Fluffy texture has previously been popular in decades that celebrated glamour: the 30s, 40s, and 80s. The current fashion climate is more subdued than the 80s and less glitzy than the 30s, but there is a leaning towards luxury, a blend of the glittering and the comfortable. Frizzy hair can play up both bohemian and glitzy aesthetics. The key is knowing what textures and styles work well with a bit of flyaway fuzz.

We think of the eighties and we tend to think frizz, blue eye shadow, scrunchies. But not all eighties fashion was over-the-top. There was a sort of innocent decadence that is often forgotten. Think about Princess Diana, Brooke Shields, Michelle Pfeiffer. These lades had soft hair, peachy makeup and big pearls; they looked youthful, innocent and sexy. The look shown here recalls the softer side of the eighties, bringing back a feminine glamour that’s been away for far too long. Learn to create it in the notes. –– Laura MartinClick for StyleNotes →
