The Fashion Kaiser has done it again. Karl Lagerfeld showed his first ever haute couture collection for Fendi and it wasn’t just the extravagance of the chinchilla, sable, and mink hair that had me enamored. The hair on the actual catwalkers caused a beauty stir. Locks were styled with a deep side-part and pinned back to frame the face with a wavy. The length was then secured with a low pony in the back, giving the illusion of shorter locks. In a runway-world of rumpled and meh hair, it’s exciting to see a return to such elegance. You may recall Marc Jacobs went for a similar proper lady look for the fall collections. My trend alert sense are certainly buzzing.

Whatever your keratin specialist is telling you, the texture trend is happening. Honestly, in the coolest salons, on the coolest streets, in the coolest cities girls about town have been embracing and enhancing texture for a while, creating contemporary interpretations of the personality, beauty and grace of textured hairstyles. Starring gap-toothed Lindsey Wixson in a remarkably soft and bouncy and buxom cascade of curl, perhaps Fendi’s spring ’15 campaign will be the tipping point for swirly looks. You are probably thinking: “Well if I had hair like that I’d wear it natural too. . .” Right on, but this is not Lindsey’s natural texture. It features some clever styling, but nothing you can’t do at home. Learn how in the notes.
