Alexander McQueen 2016 Braids

PLAITS/BRAIDS

Gorgeous plaits and braids are not new to the fashion scene, however they’re being stepped up an extra notch and they’re everywhere this summer season. Not only are plaits beautifully versatile, but they’re perfect for getting your hair out of  your face and off your neck in a way that will capture anyone’s attention.

Braid Crown Headband

Try something beautifully elegant and sophisticated like a crown braid to pair with an outfit that truly deserves to be the main focus or if you’re wearing bulky jewelry.

What’s better than a classic side braid? They’re easy to do and they look great with everything. Whether you’re going for a hike outdoors or attending an art gallery, the classic side braid is perfect for any occasion.

Vogue Side Braid

Is your style more contemporary? Long and sleek side braids will add a relaxed     street style effect to any outfit. They’re perfect for edging up a simple band tee.

Casual French Braids

Messy styles tend to look the most interesting. Take a note from Alexander Mcqueen and opt for pinning up all of your hair in a messy braided nest. This adds a cool touch to your ensemble and compliments your features.


Chic Silver Headbands

HEADBANDS

Headbands went out of style somewhere in between the 90’s and early 2000’s. But, now the headband is making it’s way back into the scene as an accessory staple for Spring/Summer 2016.

Go Boho!

Summer is fast approaching, which means hot & humid days and breezy nights. Slap on a head scarf to wear with beachy waves for a bonfire in the sand.

Jeweled Headpiece

Braid Crown

Go with a bejeweled head piece to dress up a simple outfit or follow Chanel’s idea of pairing two complimentary headbands together in one look! Stay one step ahead and merge two trends together – braid a piece of your hair and wrap it around your crown to get the headband effect!

Chic Editorial Fringe Bang

SHORT FRINGE

Think Audrey Hephburn a la Breakfast at Tiffany’s, but modernized and edgier.

Audrey Hephburn Fringe Bang

Admittedly, this look is not for everyone. The severe cut looks best on those with angled jaws and prominent cheek bones. But, if you can pull off this look you’ll have your fair share of compliments.

This is truly the cut in fashion for Spring/Summer 2016, especially in London where mod-chic is always in style.

Short Fringe Bang

“PUNS”

Pun Hairstyle Trend

A “pun” is a new fashion term. It mixes a pony tail and bun together in one. The casually-loose style is so easy to do yourself. All you need is a hair tie – just throw it up quick and you’re done.

Learn How To Style Your Hair Based On Your Natural Texture

Learning how to accentuate your natural hair texture means keeping your styling time to a minimum and your hair at it’s healthiest. Here’s how to do it…

STRAIGHT HAIR

Aveda Brilliant Spray-On Shine

How To Style: If your natural texture is straight, emphasizing the shine and health of your hair is key. How to make the most of your straight hair? Use a deep-cleansing shampoo and follow up with a lightweight conditioner, focusing the product only on the ends. Be sure to avoid using too many styling products, which can have the effect of weighing down your hair and flattening it. Instead, we suggest blow-drying with a nozzle and a smooth paddle brush. Pull the hair taut with the brush and aim the air towards the ends.  Finish the style with a straightening iron, if necessary, and add a shine serum to get that light reflecting shampoo-commercial hair.

Bonus Tip: Girls with straight hair should avoid pointing the blow dryer directly into your hair – this will cause frizz! Instead tilt the dryer down and use a low setting to dry.

WAVY HAIR

Living Proof Full Thickening Mousse
Living Proof              Full               Thickening      Mousse $27

How To Style: If you wake up with a natural wavy texture that looks like you just came from a beach vacation – count yourself lucky! The best thing to do to style your hair is to let it air dry. Simply brush when wet and apply a little volumizing mousse to the roots in a scrunching motion to accentuate your curls and spritz on a sea salt spray. If you want to apply some heat, attach a diffuser to the end of your dryer and on the lowest setting, take sections of your hair from root to tip and place inside the diffuser and against your head until dry.

Bonus Tip: For a more styled effect like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, take a 1 inch clipless curling iron and wrap large sections around the barrel changing the direction facing away from and towards your face. Spray with a light hold hairspray and you’re done!

THICK/CURLY HAIR

Davines Curl Building Serum
Davines Curl Building Serum $26

How To Style: To get the most out of your naturally thick and curly hair, apply a curl-building serum from the mid-shaft to ends to wet hair and rough blow dry on a medium-low setting until hair is about 80% dry.  Roll your hair from ends to root into large Velcro rollers. Pin the roller in and allow to air dry and cool while you apply your makeup or eat breakfast. Once the hair is completely dry, remove the rollers and tousle your hair to break up the curls a bit. Spray with some strong hairspray and you’re done!

Bonus Tip: When applying styling products, don’t use too much! Take the time to apply them evenly and only apply more where needed. Be careful not to overdo it.

 

                                            VERY CURLY HAIR

Natural Texture Curly Hair

How To Style: Apply a detangling mask in the shower and gently comb through wet hair with a wide-tooth comb. Spray in a curl enhancer and twist small sections around your finger and release to get a more uniform curl pattern. Lightly blow dry with a diffuser and apply a small amount of oil to the ends to keep your curls looking hydrated and shiny.

Bonus Tip: Make sure that you’re getting a quality haircut specifically tailored to your curly hair. This will help the style to look it’s absolute best.
