Photo: Etro Fall 2016 Ad Campaign

Paging through the September 2016 issue of W searching for content that wasn’t an advertisement, I kept catching images of buoyant clouds of curls in the ad campaigns. While I may be sick of the clothes from months of analyzing them on runway, I’m not sick of seeing natural hair texture, waves and curls across the glossies. In Louis Vuitton, Natalie Westling’s signature flamed tendrils appear in gorgeous ringlets. Frederikke Sofie‘s blonde and soft ethereal crowning curls appear in both Chloé and Etro, setting the standard for bohemian beauties everywhere. Heather Kemesky and Jourdan Dunn wore dark wavy bobs and Selena Forrest’s spirals took on a grungy appeal in DKNY. Looks like curls will shape how beauty complements fashion for another season. I’m optimistic that this celebration of curls is more than just a trend, and is now a true classic.

This look combines two big trends for the coming year: curls and bangs. Thick fringe is often paired with curly hairstyles, but usually the bangs themselves are straightened, providing contrast to the loose shape of the coils. Wearing bangs curly gives them a softer, quirky feeling that is more flattering on strong features than a blunt, straight edge. The trick to this style is achieving the right balance between control and organic movement; learn how in the style notes. –– Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →
