The runways have spoken and there are plenty of reasons to look forward to the hairstyles of Spring 2014. The hair trends for this season are all about messy, seemingly-uncoiffed locks, however us girls know that it takes a little effort to look so effortless.
Here are the looks we’re most excited to start practicing:
Mermaid/Bohemian Waves and Mixed Textures: Models strutting the Versace, Calvin Klein, and Christopher Kane runways all sported tousled locks. The more randomly placed and textured, the better. To achieve this look, you can plait damp hair before bed. Or, try using mousse on dry hair; using a wet product on dry hair produces a slightly uneven, matte finish. Then blow-dry roughly, and wind random sections around a curling iron.
Windswept Updos: “The hair is a hot mess, like she had a really good night”, explained Orlando Pita, the hairstylist for the Michael Kors show. Rochas and Tom Ford models also displayed the loose tangles and halo of hair representative of this look. Simply curl sections of hair at front, away from your face, and then twist your hair up into a rumpled knot secured with hairpins. No need to be precise!
Old World/Milk Maid Braids: This hairdo, like the previous ones, is plucked right out of the Romantic past. Though less experimental than the plaits of last season (see: fishtail braids), they still stand-out. Alberta Ferretti, Rachel Zoe, and Rebecca Minkoff all showcased the messy structure. Braid your hair loosely and don’t worry about fly-aways.
Edgy Bobs: Models wigged-out on the runways of Chanel, Marc Jacobs, and Fendi. Unlike the other hair styles, this one is more contemporary. The uneven, erratic cut evokes a free-spirited and boyish attitude. Many of the wigs seemed as if “[the model] took the scissors to her own hair!”, exclaimed Guido who cut the Marc Jacobs bobs.
