A new season means a new beauty routine. Include your hairstyle in that routine as well with these tips and tricks from the latest fashion runways.
Big Bang Theory
From wispy and sideswept to pin-straight and full, the flirty fringe stole the spotlight at John Galliano, Hermès, Marc Jacobs, and Miu Miu.
GET THE LOOK: Forgo perfectly blunt ends – choppy, layered bangs are more flattering for most face shapes and easier to trim yourself.
The ’80s are having a moment – as evidenced by the recent Debbie Gibson Tiffany Reunion Tour. Also making a comeback: crimped hair (with a softer touch this time), as seen at Costume National and Viktor & Rolf.
GET THE LOOK: Break out the crimper if you kept one from back in the day. If not, crib the styling trick used backstage at Oscar de la Renta: Zigzag one-inch sections of hair around U-shaped bobby pins, then set the wave by clamping down on it with a flatiron. Brush out to lighter-than-air perfection.
Oversize, slightly mussed braids – fashioned across the crown or cascading down the back – transformed manes at Valentino and Ruffian for a sophisticated (not schoolgirl) vibe.
GET THE LOOK: ‘It’s a woven look, not a perfect braid, says Kayley Pak of the John Barrett Braid Bar in NYC, who suggests applying pomade to fingers before braiding to ensure a good grip on hair.
