I love spring trends! They are so much more fun than the winter looks – brighter colors, funkier styles and fabulous sunglasses. Top designers like Georges Chakra, Michael Angel and Carlos Miele all showed off simple hairstyles for this season like messy waves, low ponytails and braids, of course.
Waves – Messy, feminine waves never go out of style. Refresh this look for the spring by switching the part around or cutting some brand new bangs. I’m loving the sexy shades from Peter Som’s collection (center).
Sleek & Shiny – Slicked back styles made several appearances during Fashion Week. Stylists behind the scenes at the Michael Angel show turned this model’s long hair into a faux bob by tucking a tiny chignon under the hairline (center). I love the silver bow accessory and metallic highlights from Cynthia Rowley too, but I’m not feeling the greasy / wet look from Georges Chakra (right). What do you think?
Cool Ponytails – Ponytails are so much fun to play around with! Stylists for Prabal Gurung and Carolina Herrera (center) had fun dressing up the simple style with clips and twists. Whether your ponytail is messy or structured, keep it down low to your neck.
Funky Braids – More braids! Stylists are taking the braided look to the extreme with styles you’ve never seen before. Check out the crazy twisted pattern on the far right, from Behnaz Sarafpour’s Spring 2011 Collection. Georges Chakra and Nicholas K went with the fishtail braids, which we’re seeing more and more of. To get this look, simply split your ponytail into two sections and cross over smaller pieces from each side. It takes awhile to create but it’s definitely worth the extra time!
