It’s nearly time to ditch the warm knitwear, safe hair styles and subdued colours as we are now in the run-up into Spring, and after having eagerly watched the runways & catwalks it’s safe to say the trends leading into Summer ’14 will not be short of colour.
Chanel’s runway show at Paris Fashion Week saw Karl Lagerfeld’s collection push the boundaries with explosions of colour and inventive takes on the classic looks. The hair & make-up team followed suit by giving top models such as Cara Delevingne over-sized dreadlocks with flashes of pastel & beaded braids running through. The pony-tail’s were finished off with salt styling sprays to give the hair a textured, messy look. This comes as great news for all the festival lovers this year who are wondering what to do with their hair; pastels, oversized pony-tails, texturizing sprays and dreads are on the forecast for 2014 hair trends. Also ideal for when you’re camping over-night at a festival and you won’t be washing your hair for a few days; keep your dry shampoo’s & salt sprays handy and not only will you look fabulous but you’ll be bang on trend!
Another collection that we particularly loved this season was the controversial ‘McDonalds‘ and ‘Spongebob‘ inspired catwalk that Jeremy Scott designed for Moschino as his debut collection at Milan Fashion Week. We thought introducing modern day pop-culture and household names was a fun & inventive twist for a high-end fashion show. The striking colours of our favourite food chain were teamed up with statement hair-do’s of black or bleach blonde pixie crops. Another fantastic hair style to accompany our summer wardrobe as it is easy to maintain and a perfect canvas for a Hunt or Dye vibrant hair-do. If your hair is already pre-lightened, the blonde pixie crop is ideal for adding a splash of colour to revive your hair for the summer season.
