5 Winter Celebrity Hair Trends

haircelebs

In winter, many of us enter a state of hibernation when it comes to our beauty and hair regime.  The cold brings with it a tendency to be more risk adverse while the bountiful options in hats and headwear makes us more prone to cover-up. Celebs, however, seem to live in another league – slaying winter with some brand new hairstyles. Whether it’s Solange and her ability to push a summer vibe into winter, or Rita Orla resurrecting the Barbie pony-tail – celebs have something for everyone. Here are our favourite 5 styles for you to try:

Kristen Stewart – Faux Undercut Crop

Hair trends

Channelling 1990s David Beckham, Kristen Stewart has gone for a deep side parting and swept it over to one size for a faux-under cut styling. The key to this look is hiding all your length as best as you can, sleeking sides right back and securing with pins – from a distance, you should make them think you’ve gone for a crop. For colour, channel Beckham’s bleached blonde crop with platinum tones which look really striking against a winter staple of black.

Solange – Brushed-Out Waves

hair trends

Remember the rule about never brushing out your curls?  Put it to one side and let curls be curls. Take your brush and go wild loosening up for your curls, making room for volume and even frizz. A refreshing Bohemian trend for winter, which is traditionally a time that sees us a bit more uptight. Unashamedly don a winter hat without worrying about hat hair (the struggle is real).

Rita Ora – The Barbie Doll Ponytail

hair trends

Do you remember styling your Barbie doll with mashoof ponytails?  Hair is going nostalgic with a nod to the 80s and voluminous ponies. It’s an easy look to recreate because it works best on hair that isn’t just washed, nor does it really require brushing – simply pull up and go. Or, for more volume, you can back-comb the length or even reach for your retro crimpers. If this style sits well with you, why not experiment with some side positioning? (bleached double denim not included).

Gigi Hadid – Hair, Hair, Hair

Proving that good hair never goes out of season, Gigi Hadid goes for length and volume. In terms of colour, work to add dimensions with different tones – which stops hair being a little bit too flat. This look relies on really taking care of your locks with conditioning treatments and regular trims (or, you know, cheat and go for extensions – sorry not sorry).

Ruby Rose – Covetable Crop

Proving that the crop has so much potential is short-hair ambassador Ruby Rose. Think that having short hair gives you fewer options? Follow Ruby’s lead as she styles a quiff, a side parting and even a sweeping fringe. Ruby even experiments freely with colour and, since the length is so short, it’s simple for her to be blonde one day, brunette the next. The chameleon haircut is perfectly flattering to Ruby’s personality. If you’ve thinking about going short for a while, take a chance – it might just be the best Christmas present you’ve ever given yourself.

Hair Trends Right From The Runway

Hair Trends

You’d have to have been residing on Mars to not know that September was the month of fashion. New York, Paris, London AND Madrid all played hosts to the fashion houses and their crew of muses and models who were there to educate us all on the potential of Spring Summer 2017. While most of the world was watching for the must-have clothing colour (Mango, by the way – thanks to Versace) or the must-have heel (8cm HIGH heels, Chloe – natch) we only had our eyes on one thing – the hair.

Here is our round-up of the best hairstyles straight from the runway, set to dominate your Instagram feed as early as Christmas. No thanks needed.

The 80s Power Blow Dry

The Princess Di cut is back, but not quite as we know it. Instead of undergoing a chop, this look is recreated with thick fringes and concealed ponytailing. At Phillip Lim, models donned ponytails right in their neckline (which you couldn’t see from the front) while all volume went into some bouffant fringing. The stylist behind the fashion house, Paul Hanlon, said that the look was less power-house 9-5 glam and more “end of night” – “You get the feeling that this hair was once set and its kind of fallen out at the end of the night”.

Surf’s Up

The epitome of summer is easy, undone surfer locks so we really just had to sit back and see which house interpreted it first – as it happens, it was Alexander Wang in New York. The hair-colour on the catwalks was yellow bleached blonde, if you were a child of the 1990s and ever had a run in with ‘sun-in’ you’ll go some way to imagining the shade. As for styling, it’s all about the sea-sprays and the chalky pastes which work to add some texture for a totally undone, care-free style.

Sleek and Polished

When one camp yells “Surf’s Up” the other yells “straighteners NOW” and it was over at Victoria Beckham that they were working hard to portray a chic and timeless vibe. Models had long hair, which was poker straight, one-length and centre parted, and intriguingly tucked behind the ears. Don’t be fooled by the simplistic, hair that glam needs more help than you’d think with continual conditioning to keep the shine. However, the finished look is pretty epic – timeless and almost ethereal.

The Ballerina Bun

The messy bun really has had its day, having been on a continual loop for several years now. All hail the Ballerina Bun! An interpretation of a bun which is just as easy as it’s messy sister but much chicer and polished for a style that takes you from easy Sunday afternoons, right into a boardroom. The models at fashion house Pamella Roland had buns that were as easy as a pony-tail and a circular wind round. The finishing touch was a good styling cream that worked to add gloss and shine.

Without wishing winter away, the team are pretty excited to see these four hair trends become mainstream – we’ve been arguing about our favourite all week (I’m for the Surf’s Up, by the way). We’ll see you in the salon for these styles SOON – we promise.
