As we bid adieu to a summer of boho waves and pastel dip dyes, we say hello to a new season’s trend: the Lady and the Tramp. Some seasons are defined by cuts or colours; this season it’s all about the mood. A/W 2013 gives rise to two definitive, contrasting styles: the romantic and the rebel. They are older, edgier and sexier and our stylists at our Liverpool hairdressers love them!
Trend: The Lady
This season we can look forward to pumping up the volume with big, sexy hair reigning supreme at Marc Jacobs, Bottega Veneta and Ashish, showing us that more is definitely more. Think flirty, frivolous, and film star temptress. But, above all, think va-va volume. The forties meets the seventies with larger than life curls. While big hair is often a winner as every Scouse girl knows, the look received a retro revamp à la Veronica Lake and Jerry Hall.
How To Get The Look
Divide and conquer with a sharp side parting. The look calls for long, brushed out pin curls and back-combing galore. Volumise flat hair with extensions which add body and texture or try amplifying your natural hair with our range of thinning hair products from NIOXIN. Thicker, fuller hair in just 30 days? Yes please. For a more wearable take on the trend, try a volumising curly blow from Voodou’s 2-Go service.
Trend: The Tramp
This season wet look hair took centre stage. Rather than wet ‘n’ wild, Balmain, Roberto Cavalli and Alberta Ferretti give the trend a sophisticated makeover resulting in an ultra-chic look. Forget the days of matte hair, this season is all about the dual texture. The new style? Both super shiny and super sexy. The look? Sleek, not slick. This style calls for wet roots, juxtaposed with contrasting tousled lengths for a look which screams glamorous grunge.
How To Get The Look
Without looking like you’ve been caught in a downpour, wet look hair is by no means for the faint hearted. But, with a splash of colour and the right attitude, the result is both wearable and sexy. For a subtler take on the trend use hairspray rather than gel to avoid looking like you’ve been caught in the rain. Keep the look long and colourful by channeling your inner Kardashian and opting for a dip dye. Obtaining the perfect dip dye is a job best left to the professionals, so why not visit one of our salons on a Half Price Colour Day to take the plunge? Healthy hair is essential to achieving these looks so split ends are a no-go ladies, make sure to book in with your stylist every 4-5 weeks to keep your locks looking lustrous.
