Simple haircuts for Spring
Despite the economic news, the spring 2009 runways featured bright, shiny and geometrically constructed collections. From red-carpet ready goddess dresses to ’80s street fashion to silky harem pants and jumpsuits, designers went bold. As a result, runway hair tended to be subtler. It seems this season is all about paring down the hair. Hair had a very modern feel that stayed close to the head. Loose hair was the exception not the rule.
Off the Face Hair
Whether swept up or slicked back, this season’s was kept away from the face with no bangs to disturb the lines. The close-to-the-head wet look was seen on the runways of Badgley Mischka, D&G, and Versace. At Prada, Guido Palau pulled hair into a classic French twist, and then gave the style extreme edge by giving it a lacquered look.
Middle Hair Parts
A runway staple, middle parts are sexy, simple and can be reinvented each season to work with bouncy curl, loose waves or super straight styles. Seen on the runways of Calvin Klein, Donna Karan, Marc Jacobs and Versace. The middle part can add edge to an updo or infuse style with casual glam.
Almost every designer incorporated a headpiece into their show. Guido paired romantic waves with jauntry fedoras for Ralph Lauren and created “caps” by wrapping tights around the models’ head at Jean Paul Gaultier. Marc Jacobs fashioned a textured braid to go with the designers hats using Redkens‘ Fabricate and create flyaways for a messy look. Adding a hair accessory like a hat or headband can really complement an over-all look.
So, there you have the scoop for spring! We look forward to seeing you soon to incorporate these new looks into your life style.Badgley Mischka, Calvin Klein, D&G, Donna Karan, French twist, Guido Palau, haircut, Jean Paul Gaultier, Marc Jacobs, Prada, Ralph Lauren, recession fashion, recession style, Redken, San Francisco, Spring Haircuts, Versace
