Fall 2009 Runway Pushes Boundaries

Thank God that hair is fun again. As a hairdresser bigger is always better! Head-turning hair was seen on Fall runways included updos, bouffants, French Twists and even pompadours.

From French twists and chignons to menswear-inspired quiffs, classic ‘dos dominated at Calvin Klein, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Ralph Lauren and more taking looks from the 40’s, 50’s and 80’s and updating them with new elements.
Hair with exaggerated fullness and volume raised the roof at Louis Vuitton, Luella, Prada and Versace. 

 Of couse with extreme hair usually comes extreme and bold fashion. The boldest glamorous accessories included Feather necklaces Crystal Statement Earings and even Metallic clutches. It is no surprise that one would pair brocade jackets with puffy sleeves. Leather, textured stockings and boots everywhere. Lots of boots. Even thigh highs mentioning a few: Gucci, Gianvito Rossi for Altuzarra and my all time favorite this year Rodarte. I take a size 10! Hair and Fashion is a reaction to the times we’re living in. It’s strong, positive and forceful. It’s empowering to women. So go forth, be seen really seen and “be” a fashion statement. 

Haircuts and Fashion for Spring 2009 – Looking Good in the Recession

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.

Hair accessories
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.
