Spring/Summer 2013 Runway Hair Inspiration Not to Miss

Braided updo for Marchesa New York Fashion Week

A Forecast of the Hottest Hairstyles Straight from the Runway!

From bedhead braids to chic chignons, this year’s fashion weeks in New York, Paris, and Milan all revealed gorgeous and original hair. Even better, many of these styles not only make a statement on the runway, but can translate into cute every day looks for women that aren’t 6′ tall and styled by a team of beauty professionals.

Marchesa at New York Fashion Week:  Hair stylist Renato Campora created braided hairstyles that were feminine and ethereal. Braids are not only super in style for 2013, but also an easy way to get your hair out of the way as the weather heats up.

Half Updo from Paris Fashion Week Balenciaga Show

Just Cavalli Crimped Wavy Hairstyle with middle part

Just Cavalli at Milan Fashion Week: These whimsical waves made quite a statement at the Just Cavalli show. What added charm to the look was how the waves were effortless and undone. If you have a crimping iron in your arsenal it might be time to bust it back out!

Milan Fashion Week Side Pony Tail by Wella

Ports 1961 Milan Fashion Week: Wella Creative Director Eugene Soleiman created this elegant side pony for a show at Milan Fashion Week. With heels and a cocktail dress, this look is surprisingly simple and sleek.

Louis Vuitton at Paris Fashion Week: The models at the Louis Vuitton show reveal how much a simple accessory can do for an overall look. This simple headband makes this model’s look irresistibly sweet.

Chanel at Paris Fashion Week: This loose knot at the nape of the neck accented by a single pearl shows us that understated hair can make a huge statement! Paired with a clean middle part, this style is sophisticated as well as soft and feminine.

Valentino by Guido low chignon with side part

Valentino at Paris Fashion Week: Once again, Guido creates one of his chart topping ethereal looks with this loose chignon for Valentino. While it seems like a simple messy bun, the dramatic side part and lower placement of the bun add a glamorous edge.

Pucci long caramel hair with middle part and front bang

Pucci at Milan Fashion Week: This simple style has a retro feel with the full bang and middle part. It may be retro, but this hairstyle, created for the Pucci show at Milan Fashion Week, is timeless, sexy, and effortlessly chic.

Rachel Zoe urban wave with loose braid

Rachel Zoe at New York Fashion Week: Odile Gilbert created this rock n’ roll hairstyle, reminding us that hair doesn’t have to be tortured smooth and straight. The playful texture and messy pancake braid reveal that a “bedhead” doesn’t always need to stay at home.

Loose, twisted updo

Suno at New York Fashion Week: We see yet another gorgeous hairstyle by Odile Gilbert at the Suno show at NYFW. This loose, twisted updo is not only romantic but also edgy. What’s great about this look is that it can be paired with a flirty dress or a motorcycle jacket and ripped jeans!

We’re reminded every year that fashion week is not just about the clothes! Fashion weeks from New York to Paris and Milan not only reveal stunning hairstyles, but also forecast the hair and makeup trends for Spring and Summer 2013. From the rock n’ roll urban style at the Rachel Zoe show to the ultra romantic chignons at Valentino, this year is going to be another inspired year for gorgeous hair!

Great Hair Styles for Summer Vacation

Vacation season is fast approaching, and while you’re thinking about what to pack for your travel adventure, give your hair some attention too. Your summer hair needs to be flattering of course, but it also needs to be manageable. Let’s face it; you don’t want to waste precious time standing in front of the mirror in your hotel room. So, for inspiration, here are five lovely low-maintenance looks.

Hair for Summer Vacation – Waves

Natural-looking, tousled waves make up one of this summer’s top hair trends. Perfect for the beach or any romantic destination, you can achieve this look effortlessly. Before turning in for the evening, quickly and loosely braid your hair. When you wake up in the morning, unbraid your hair and just work in some volumizer – and off to the beach you go.

Hair for Summer Vacation – Braids

Braids are suitable for any vacation destination, from big cities to the remote countryside or beach. Create a charming fishtail braid by pulling your hair back into a low ponytail, securing it with an elastic band. Divide your hair into two sections. Take a thin piece of hair from the outside of section 1 and cross it over to join section 2. Then take a thin piece of hair from the outside of section 2 and cross it over to join section 1. Keep repeating this pattern, and tie off the end.

Hair for Summer Vacation – Ponytails

An even easier alternative to braids is the classic ponytail hair style. This hair style can be made to look as casual or polished as you want, depending on your destination or activity. For a sleek, refined look, smooth back your hair with the help of some pomade and tie in a low ponytail. To add some texture to your hair for a more informal or beach hair look, spritz on styling spray before pulling your hair back, leaving a few tendrils to frame your face.

Hair For Summer Vacation – Headbands

Bright-colored head bands make styling your hair a snap, especially when you’ve partied until dawn the night before, and you have a busy sightseeing day ahead. They also do a fantastic job keeping your hair out of your face on a windy tropical beach. Just slide one on and you’re ready for the day. Head bands come in a wide variety of widths, materials, colors and patterns, and they suit all hair lengths and textures, from curly to straight.

Hair for Summer Vacation – Chignons

Sexy and romantic, a chignon is perfect for wining and dining or window-shopping along a major city avenue. This hair style is quicker to create if your hair is long. Smooth your hair back into a low ponytail and secure with an elastic band. Divide your ponytail into two sections and twist the sections together all the way down. Then wrap the twisted ponytail around the band, tucking in the ends and securing with a pin or two.
