HAIR TRENDS: GOOD VS. GOTHIC
This season’s hair styles are shaping up to be either sweet, innocent and girlie or sensuously dark and gothic. Are you planning to be good or go gothic this season? The ‘Good’ look Think softly swept up-dos, pinned up curls with the shine of satin and a few flyaway strands to make the hair look pretty and feminine. This look isn’t supposed to be too well groomed so loosely sweep your hair up and let the texture and waves do the talking. Designers showcasing the look: One designer that has epitomised the perfectly pretty look this season has to be Dolce and Gabbana. The designer created elegantly parted hair, swept back off the face, which was also pinned up and adorned with a pearl and gold beaded headband and matching statement earrings. Whether your tousled hair is elegantly piled up and pinned or plaited in a halo style across the top of your head, you’re looking to create a regal style up-do that’s fit for a princess. How you can achieve it: Firstly part your hair in the middle and prep your hair with texturising spray, twisting and pinning sections of your hair with the Hershesons grips until it is swept completely off your face. The ‘Gothic’ Look If you are looking to take a walk on the dark side, your hair needs to have a sleek centre parting and a swept back approach for a more grungy and gothic feel. This look requires hair to be poker straight and smooth to create a strong and edgy look. Designers showcasing the look: Marc Jacobs was the main designer to buck the gothic trend this season and models showcased this look by parting their hair in the middle and making sure strands of hair came down the face in a striking and slick way. To complete this look your hair doesn’t need to look too well washed, as this will detract from the style. Why not use some of the Hershesons Batiste dry shampoo for an on the go gothic look? How you can achieve it: Wear your hair super sleek and poker straight for a sophisticated and sexy take on the modern goth. Inspired by fashion's enduring style icons Carine Roitfeld and Jane Birkin, the Hershesons superstraight style can be created in less than 30 minutes and will take you from dusk til’ dawn!
