COVER RUNWAY

With the rise of “no makeup” makeup on the catwalk, runway hair started to look a bit more conceptual than realistic. Case in point two-texture hair. . .wet on the top, dry on the bottom. It may have looked great on a model but simply didn’t work on real girls. This season, however, a glorious trend of simple but sweet hair started appearing all over the shows. Undone, effortless, and natural were definite buzz words and “it should look like the models did it themselves” became the it phrase backstage. Low-key everything, tousled looks, and even a little frizz became the norm across all four cities. It’s the age of “don’t care hair.” And who knew there were so many variations.

FESTIVAL HEADBAND

Braids are so easy to create that it’s easy to forget how chic they can be. Sure they’re great for beach days and festivals, but they also hold their own on the red carpet and in the office. This tightly cinched braided headband paired with glossy waves nods at earthiness, but the sleek finish elevates it. Even the feathers feel understated, placed in face framing cluster that mimics a bang. It’s a look that’s stunning but professional Learn to create it in the style notes. –– Laura Martin

The resort season is already upon us. Karl Lagerfeld showed Chanel in Seoul, Dior stayed in France, and Nicolas Ghesquière’s just showed the LV collection at the Bob Hope estate in California. With Nicolas Ghesquière citing the cult ’70s film 3 Women as one of the inspirations for the cruise collection, its only natural that the beauty looks followed. Messy and bedhead-esque waves in the desert were a nod to Pinky Rose, the character in the film played by a young Sissy Spacek. Fresh and glowing faces done up by makeup guru Pat McGrath were equally energetic. The collection in general left a nice sense of playfulness––perfect for the Californian attitude.

meh hair

A few weeks ago, T Magazine dubbed the hair of the spring 2015 season, “as meh hair.” Most of the looks on the runway were kinda blah –– no blowouts, no crazy updos, no exciting new colors; it was “enviable without any help at all.” Some are even calling it the new rich girl hair. A status symbol. A homage to Jane Birkin, the woman who was so wealthy and slim and perfect, she even looked great without makeup or a bra.
