Inspiration Ideas 2013
We've already seen a few good party dress ideas last week, so it's only appropriate that we find the perfect hairstyle to match. Formal and fussy or laid-back and relaxed, what ever the holiday event you're attending, these runway and celebrity hair ideas will surely inspire you to try something new with your tresses.
Ways with Braids
Braids have been massively popular this year from the runway to the red carpet, seen styled in innumerable ways. Lucy Hale and Alberta Ferretti models wore loosely plaited ponytails, whilst Selena Gomez went edgy with an elevated braid. Wear a romantic braided crown (seen at Rebecca Minkoff) or go goth like Cara Delevingne did with a braided undercut. TV Presenter Maria Menounos showed off a textured mermaid braid.
For those more formal affairs, you can't go wrong with a classic pulled black chignon, French twist or slightly messy bun. An asymmetrical fringe will beautifully compliment this style.
The Faux Bob
Shorten your locks without cutting it off by trying out the uber trendy Faux Bob. Curl sections of your hair with a curling iron, then fasten and tuck inwards towards the nape of your neck with bobby pins. Leave a few strands loose in the front to soften this pretty look.
Incorporating a plait into your usual upstyle will add a playful party spin.
Half-up Half Down
If you have naturally wavy hair, the easiest way to add some glamour is with a half up, half down hairstyle. Gather a few strands from the front of your head and either braid it, twist it or pull it back in a pompadour. Let the rest of your locks fall loose in ravishing waves.
The Finer Details
Vivify your normal style with interesting hair accessories. At Marchesa, models were given a fringed finish with feathered clips. Alexis Mabille went retro with beehives and satin bands. Y-3 presented uncombed folksy locks with a side braid and neon rainbow feather. Plait a bright ribbon into your braid seen at Calla. Cover up uncompromising hair with a very trendy veiled beanie a la Jil Sander. Or add a contrast coloured strand for a grungy look as Libertine did.
To get your hair this sleek and perfectly straight, smoothen down with a flat iron, using a heating spray before hand and a good serum or shine spray after.
Ornament your tresses with a range of beautiful hair jewels, floral clips and crowns or try ornate crystal brooches for a vintage effect.
