Autumn 2012 Trend Report!
Fall’s here and you all know what that means: fashion goes funky! There’s more drama, more oomph and hair’s bigger than ever! Summer’s all about sleek, tidy hairstyles that are easy to pull off, and more importantly, keep you cool on hot days. But with temperatures dropping, you can bring out your headbands, your bouffants and your bangs!
One of the biggest trends to hit the runways, and the streets, this season is the bouffant. The big, messy, poufy hairstyle Brigitte Bardot made oh-so-famous is back in vogue this season. If you’re worried about backcombing or using hairspray regularly, it’d help if you used hair inserts like “bump makers”. But remember, the only way to get an authentic bouffant is to tease, tease and tease, and use products like Wellaflex Strong Hold Hairspray to ensure your style stays where you want it to be. If you want to glam up your bouffant and give a 2012-touch to this retro gem, add a bejeweled hairband for a glam look or tie a dainty little ribbon around the pouf to add a flirty, feminine vibe to your updo!
If you want to add some dimension to your everyday hairstyle, this next Fall trend is a winner: braids and twists! Whether you’re putting in a few random braids in your everyday ponytail or twisting thin sections of your hair away from your forehead, pulled to the back à la Daenerys Targaryen of Game of Thrones, braids and twists are simple ways of adding a serious kick to the most basic dos! Braids have been a major hit this season, straight from the fashion shows to the sitcoms, every hair diva’s rocking her own version!
If bouffants and braids are too much for you, worry not: this season, one of the most stylish trends is the classic ponytail, glammed and styled to keep you looking your very best on the go. No messy, scruffy, out-of-bed looks this season: Fall 2012’s ponytail is all about sleek, glossy glamor. No flyaways or frizz, please! To get this style, smoothen your hair out with a serum and brush it till it’s super shiny. Straighten with a flat iron or blow-dry it to get sheets of long, touch-worthy hair! Pull your hair back, go as high or low as you want, and tie it off with your favorite band! Make sure you don’t have any little bits sticking out. For a less formal look, you can pull out a few strands to softly frame your face.
