HAIR - Fashion Week Trends for Your Barnet

The statement ponytail

Wella Professionals for Issey Miyake AW11

Get this look: Take a round circle from the inner part of the head, ensuring that all hair around the hair lines is kept out of the circle.  Tie the circle into a ponytail at the crown area and bind again for around 5cm to give height.  Back comb the remaining loose hair section around the hairlines and smooth with Wella Professionals Stay Essential Finishing Spray applied to a soft bristle brush rather than directly to the hair to make the product look invisible.  Pull entire hair backwards and upwards and join with previous pony tail, at the top where the existing elastic ends. Finish with a spray of Wella Professionals Ocean Spritz Beach Texture Spray to the ponytail section for added texture.

Wella Professionals for Missoni AW11

Slicked back hair gives an illusion of the ponytail - one to tone down for use of the catwalk I think.

Sam McKnight/Pantene Pro V for Jaeger

This look has a relaxed feel; worn long and care-free.

Vintage inspired

Wella Professionals for Antonio Marras AW11

This look was inspired by the designer's mother in the fifties and sixties and brought to life by stylist Eugene Souleiman. The style brings heritage into the mix and has 3 dimensional interest from all angles. I'd love to be able to wear this one myself, but I don't think I'd be very good at recreating it. Oh to have a hair stylist on-hand at all times, now that would be amazing.

Pantene Pro-V for Aquascutum

This effortless looking natural look gives a nod to the late ‘70s. “I was inspired by the iconic fashion and fragrance advertising campaigns of the ‘70s, and the type of woman who typified that independent ‘70s career woman who breezes through life.” says Sam McKnight, Pantene Pro-V Global Stylist Ambassador. The collection with its linear, architectural structure and palette of winter nudes and bright highlights was perfectly complemented by the easy chic hair.


Wella Professionals for Temperley London AW11

The trend for all things 'ballet' continues. This one's a pretty easy one to recreate yourself, just keep the overall look quite groomed.

Long lengths

“Racoon’s Micro Wefts are absolutely brilliant for this type of fashion work,” says hair stylist Darren. “They instantly give you the creative freedom to be bang on-trend without any drama once the girls move on to get ready for their next show. They’re as quick to remove as they are to put in, so our backstage work is so much less stressful!”
