More slow time! So happy I can actually post on my blog again, and I really do apologize for being so behind!
Anyway, I’m kind of into hair trends, and in browsing around to see what’s new this season, I found some great articles and analyses that inspired this post! So I’ve shared my version with you 🙂 Enjoy!
Trend #1 – Buns:
I have to admit, I’m a little crazy about buns. There’s so many different ways you can wear them – from Princess Leia’s cinnamon buns in the Star Wars movies (which I would suggest you NEVER EVER EVER wear unless you’re going for fashion suicide) to to Vanessa Hudgen’s laidback-gorgeous messy bun at the 2012 Peoples Choice Awards to DVF’s professional chic bun (picture below), each way is different, and expresses many different personalities (or even sides of a personality). Aside from being a chameleon, the bun is a fashion classic that never gets old, even though it’s been around for forever, and depending on the type you go for, it can be SUPER simple and easy to do! Anyway, I’m rambling, so on to the visuals!
Trend #2 – Center Part:
Funny how things keep re-appearing… I thought the center part went out of style ages ago! I’m not crazy bout this look (it’s not a universal thing that everyone can pull off), but if you can do it, go for it! I still have yet to see a center part that doesn’t look severe… So let me know if you have!
Trend #3 – Ponytails:
Always and forever in style. I love it because it’s super easy, looks effortless, and allows accessories and clothing to take a center stage without completely making the hair disappear 🙂
Trend #4 – Quiffs and Bouffants:
These are always interesting! The bouffant is a style that was huge in the 60’s, and a lot of the classic classic examples of it, like Amy Winehouse’s, Bridgette Bardot’s, and of course, little miss Audrey’s, came from that period. And I just feel like the quiff has been in and out since the 1950’s, getting picked up at one time or another by celebrities like singer Rihanna, actress Marion Cotillard, fashion idol Kim Kardashian, and my personal favorite, Amy Heidemann from the band Karmin. Anyway, these are interesting styles that probably won’t be seen a lot in the general population, but for the fashion risk takers? Keep a look out!
Trend #5 – Fearless Color:
For all of you who always looked the boxes of “Splat” color (the $7 boxed ones with the crazy colors you keep seeing at Target, Walmart, and drugstores everywhere) and decided not to try it because people would think you’d gone crazy, NOW is the time to do it! Crazy colors and bright hair dye hues are in this winter. Excuse me while I go purchase my Splash kit in bright red…. 😉
