While the curtains have closed on New York Fashion Week, the spring 2013 collections and hair trends have successfully stolen our hearts. Luigi Murenu, International Creative Consultant for John Frieda® Hair Care and veteran stylist for runway shows, was behind the scenes blazing the hair trend trail. We’ve got his first-hand report and tips for achieving his favorite best in show looks at home.
Show Stopping Staple: The Classic Pony
Proving once again that true classics never go out of style, the ponytail was spotted all over the spring runways. Paired with everything from evening gowns and stilettos to barefoot beachwear, this is one look that offers serious versatility. Side, straight, messy, sleek – the sky’s the limit. In fact, the ponytail is Luigi’s top Fashion Week look to try at home. The secret is picking a variation that works with your hair’s natural tendencies. My tip would be to try a version that goes best with your natural hair texture, and have patience when trying a new style.
And the best part about this look is you really can’t go wrong. We especially love the idea of turning to a ponytail on the days in between washing. Luxurious Volume Anytime Volume Refresher is a dry shampoo you can use anytime, but is especially helpful on those in-between days. It brings new life to your hairstyle by absorbing oils for a fresh look.
Surprise, Surprise: Grunge Is the New Glam
I have to say, the trend I noticed most was the new grunge look, Luigi shares. It goes with everything and is all about super-soft, super-casual hair that’s done, yet undone. It has a sense of cool ease about it.
To get in on this 90s hair reappearance, Luigi recommends using Full Repair® Style Revival™ Heat-Activated Styling Spray. He loves the added body and flexible hold the lightweight Inca Inchi Oil accented formula adds to any style. Which direction you take from there is really up to you, which is just one of the reasons we love this catwalk craze. Let hair air dry and allow your natural wave and movement to take center stage, or blow-dry hair and add loose movement throughout with a one-inch curling iron. But don’t forget – less is more. It’s all about not looking too fussed over which means keeping it simple is key.
