High Shine is a huge trend of the year. On the runway, models strutted with glossy, slicked, almost wet hair swept back from the root and flat to the head. They kind of reminded me of the 80's music video, "Simply Irresistible" by Robert Palmer, but that's just me! So I guess, if you are rekindling that 80's
As I mentioned earlier, the pixie turns an edgy curve into product heavy spiky bangs or a barely on the shoulder bob. Again, products are key for this look so find yourself a quality paste or moulding gel that helps exaggerate the ends of the hair or bangs. This trend is all about an over the top look while
Curls have returned! But stylists beware … be sure to take your medication before going to work. Glossy mermaid waves will be popular this spring and were showcased on bleached out blondes strutting their stuff on the cat walk. Retro 70's curls are also springing into a huge comeback for spring and summer. Of course, couture stylists added a modern twist to this 70's coiffure by sweeping them to the side with a low side part and coiffing the curl completely FRIZZ FREE! Yup. The new curl is a frizz free curl with a perfect a glossed looked.
Androgyny is the word of the year. Greta Garbo showed us an androgynous look before we even had a name for it and in the early 90's, we saw the grunge look take a gritty spin into this erogenous, androgynous zone. This year, fashionistas will attempt to recapture the 30's inspired comb overs using fingers instead of a clean part. I'm even betting we will see some trendy take on the slimline, black silk, suit on the red carpet this year from those avante guarde celebs who like push the envelope. Regardless of the couture, again high shine will be key to finishing this look.
So, regardless if you tune up Robert Palmer, or stike a Greta Garbo pose this year, remember to take some time keeping your hair healthy and use quality products. With all my clients I recommend my e-shampoo and e-conditioner as it keeps your hair healthy and continues to maximize the ability for the hair follicle to grow hair. In addition, a clarifying shampoo is important to wash all those products out of your hair without stripping the roots. My "Get Out!" is an invigorating shampoo with healing tea tree oils and the hightest grade of pure peppermint oils to wash out product residue. Another recommended addition to your regiment should be a quality deep conditioner; "Pink" is a shea butter hair mask to transition your from this year's trends to next year's style. So go into this year with a healthy approach to your style so that when you ring out 2014, your New Years Eve resolution WON'T be to find a quality wig for that bald spot! Just sayin'
