From 70s inspired fringes to messy knots and rumpled braids, we have gathered the most achievable hair trends from Resort 2016 shows for you to try this spring.
1. Rumpled Braids
Braids were seen in every shape and style at this year’s Resort 2016 shows. From cartoonish crowns at Chanel, to lengthy Lara Croft braids at Aquilano Rimondi, and elegant up dos at Dennis Basso there was a braid to suit every taste.
At the Chanel show in Seoul hairstylist Sam McKnight tended to 120 braids which looked part Mickey Mouse and part Korean nobility. Aquilano Rimondi’s braided beauties were Tomb Raider types while the braids at Dennis Basso could find a home in the 19th century. When it comes to braiding your hair the best results are achieved with salt spray which adds volume to fine hair. Our product pick for achieving this look is Bumble and Bumble Surf Infusion.
2. Behind the Ear
Long hair was tucked neatly behind the ear at Diesel Black Gold, Narcisco Rodriguez and Prabal Gurung. With fans such as Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian this is the style you need to try. To get this polished look start by blow drying the sides of your hair back, behind your ears. Once dry, straighten your hair and add a final touch with a mist of Helmut Light Strong Hairspray by Evo.
3. That 70s Show
Brands such as Lanvin, Bally and Roberto Cavalli looked to the past to create gritty, seventies hairstyles. Hair was worn just below the shoulder with wispy fringes and effortless, rock and roll waves. For a vintage inspired style focus on creating texture by scrunching in Redken’s Full Effect 04 mousse into damp hair and if you are not currently sporting bangs then consider them for spring as it seems like the seventies are here to stay and fringes are the perfect way to take your look back in time.
Ballerina buns and messy top knots were spotted on the Adam Selman, Miu Miu and Alexander McQueen runways. The 2016 bun is high and mighty no matter the degree of messiness. Adam Selman’s resort 2016 collection had a commercial, sports-luxe feel that was softened by feminine ballet buns. Unstructured topknots at Miu Miu matched the theme of the collection, while McQueen created a contrast between romantic designs and tough, nonchalant knots. Make a statement this spring by messing your bun or pulling it tight depending on your outfit and complete the hairstyle with Garnier Fructis Style Anti-Humidity Hairspray.
5. Low Ponytail
Ponytails sat low on the nape of the neck at Alice + Olivia, Stella McCartney and BOSS resort 2016 shows. Generally parted in the middle the low ponytail hairstyle is perfect for spring as it gets the hair off your face while still looking fresh and sophisticated. To get this look we recommend using John Frieda Frizz Ease Extra Strength Serum which will smooth out the length and protect the hair from humidity come springtime.
