Im Jordan, if you don't know me nice to meet you :-) If you know me then it is no secret to you that I am obsessed with watching the runway and catching up on the latest trends. At VAE Hair we are always looking to the catwalk for fresh ideas to bring into the salon for our clients and for inspiration for our session work. So I thought for our first post I would put together a few of my standout hair looks from the AW 16 catwalks. If you are looking for some inspiration for this season look no further. I hope you enjoy :-)
NB: This is going to hopefully be the first of many posts like this so please any feedback or ideas on things you would like to hear about I am very open to suggestions (please be nice). There is a comments box at the bottom of this post :-)
BEJEWELLED DREAMS Alexander Mcqueen
The McQueen woman this season was a creature of the night who is able to drift between the dream world and reality. I eagerly await the Alexander Mcqueen show every year, the main reason being the collections always create such an emotive story and this years London show did not disappoint. Beautiful peal and jewel encrusted details adorned the hair in abundance.
These were combined with heavy chains and soft textured up-dos to give the look a contemporary edge.
HAIR TEXTURES - SLICK VS SOFT (left to right) Prada, Mary Katrantzou, Marc Jacobs
Shiny slick hair was a feature of many of this Autumn Winter's catwalk shows. This gloss trend paired perfectly with a few of the other recurrent trends on the catwalk; Prada teemed there much less wet but still shiny looking style with a deep slightly masculine looking side parting. Mary Katrantzou and Marc Jacobs teamed their wet looks with variations of waves. All looks however seemed to agree that whilst creating a high shine look at the root the ends of the models hair should be left much softer and textured to add a romantic/ethereal feel.
