Summer is over, but that doesn’t mean you have to fall out of style! Let Meleesa The Salon give you the 411 on this year’s Tope Five Fall Hair Styling Trends….
1. Woven Braids
Whether piled high or loose and low, braids quite a commotion on the fall catwalk. Giving the traditional braid a modern twist, incorporate a hand woven fishtail technique. Start by spritzing Bumble and Bumble dry shampoo or Does it all spray all over to give workable texture. Then pull hair back and divide into two sections at the nape of the neck. Take a small section of hair from each side, criss cross them over the gathered strands, and add to the opposite side. Continue loosely braiding, then secure with an elastic rubber band.
2. DEEP SIDE PARTS
While there was no shortage of center parts on the fall runways, it was the side swept version, artfully accentuated with soft, romantic curls and flapper girl styles that topped our best of list. And the deeper, the better: A side part minimizes a large forehead, plays up pretty eyes, and gives rounder faces the illusion of an oval shape. Which direction you swing toward, however, is entirely up to you.
3. Chunky Waves
Before Bedtime, mist just washed, damp hair with bumble and bumble tonic lotion and a volumizing aerosol spray. Then twirl one-inch sections of hair into spiral braids and let them dry overnight. The next day, after hair has completely dried, wrap one-inch sections of hair around a medium flat iron, after spraying each section with the Bumble and Bumble Spray de Mode, alternating the direction each spiral. Let them sit for about thirty seconds or so to heat up thoroughly, then drop the piece of hair and let sit without touching. When you have completed the whole head, shake them out and run your fingers through the hair lightly to get a really nice, loose, ropy wave and it’ll hold all day. Finish with Bumble and Bumble Classic Hairspray or Spray De Mode.
Models were strutting down the runways in fuzzy, feathered halos. To pull off this hair trend, stick with styles with a little padding over plastic topped with classic bows or feathers. Top off this season’s braided woven look, deep side part with a swingy twenties flair, or the soft chunky waves with one of these Blair Waldorf-style headbands.
5. SLICKED-BACK STRANDS
There’s no hiding behind your hair with this look! But while this pulled back style puts your face in the spotlight, it’s totally wearable. To get this look at home, use lots of gloss to create a “patent leather texture.” We suggest Bumble and Bumble Shine Spray, defrizz, the new and awesome Gela gel and to finish the Classic Hairspray.
