Hair off the Runway

Well as the fashion weeks travel the globe for 20 16 here is a snap shot of the hair and our inspiration, certainly we have to say there is a clear direction into lived in hair that is loose and airy and a lot of braids which we love! I have to say on a personal level Alberta Ferretti at Milan fashion week which had that medieval sensuality about it ( a little copper wire and a clear vision you can either fix your car radio or create the next look for a A list designer 🙂 , effortless and connected to the look completly!

On and off the runway its very clear that braiding is here ( yes still I hear a lot of you saying! ) I’m sure it didn’t do any harm with Kim K sporting hers regularly over the last few months. Easy to try and easy to do, for those of you who are handy with your fingers ( doing things other than texting ) give it a go! If your all thumbs i suggest getting yourself into the salon and letting the pro’s give it a go!

I can feel a braid bar coming

New York New York

Well with over 29,000 acres of parkland in the city and over 800 languages spoken it no wonder why the city is rich with diversity and when it comes to fashion weeks, no one on this planet does it better. 

Now in terms of  hair this year, the proof is in the pudding that Prior Preperation Prevents Poor Performance. The Marc Jabobs hair was a clear winner by far!!

This was a pre sketch of the desired look

  
This is how it went

  
I suggest that we all take a leaf out of Guido Palau’s ( the master stylist who did this ) book and plan ahead because hair completely lifts the overall effect of the collection. Well done!

French plaits

So with the likes of Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian to Kendal Jenner are all in the last few weeks getting braid on which has caused an influx of braiding that has bought it back from page 3 to main story. 
   
   
Love it right?

So try it next chance you get, do the entire head or maybe just the side, don’t stress if it’s not neat practice makes perfect.

Blow me

   

Balloons of course! 

But if your one of those people getting your regular blow out and feel the dying urge to dictate step by step how to do it, because it is your hair ( which in fact is true ) you know who you are, admit it you’ve done it maybe even doing it as we speak it’s ok 😜

The only reason I bring this up is so you get the change to change your look or possibly love your hair one day. Imagine if you told the chef how to cook every time they cooked food for you, would you ever get anything new? Would he/she give you alternatives or fix a problem you didn’t know how to fix? Chances not because you never gave them the chance. I can’t imagine eating the same food day in dnd day out or wearing my hair ( ok you got me I don’t have any ) but wearing your hair the same way year after year simply because you won’t be open. If you don’t trust the professional to do there job then chances are your either going to the wrong salon or you don’t know your options. 

Step outside your comfort zone and get a blow out that if different to your typical look, it washes out!

Confidence with hair

Your hair screams a lot about who you are as a person and your personality, I know for some woman there husbands have a lot to say when it comes to there hair ( not sure why ) but everyone is different I know from a very young age my father would not dare say do this or do that to my mother because its her hair and even today I can not imagine dictating my preference to my partner but different strokes for different folks. I think that hair is completely individual and has a seasonal influence, even small changes make a huge difference over time and help you evolve the overall look and vibe. I must say the biggest trend right now is undone hair that in fact takes a little getting used to when your styling but once you get the hang of it you wont look like a drowned rat, its all about the right products, the right placement and the right technique.

Baby bangs have also made a come back and  can be incredibly sexy on the right face and the right personality, I have seen almost all face shapes with baby bangs and have to say on the right personality it really doesn’t matter to a certain degree. Certainly not a decision you want to take at the drop of a hat if your hair is super long as it will take longer than a few weeks to grow that out but if you have been thinking about it for a while there is no harm in giving it a shot.

Watch your mouth

Very often some of us ( yes me included ) have razor sharp words coming out of our mouth. I for one rarely will apologize because, well that’s me and I like that aspect of my personality ( I always regret holding my tongue! )  

It’s Friday so let it fly at least once and tell someone to bugger off or tell someone you want to spend the night spooning. Apparently and I say that loosely it’s proven to improve your health if you say F#%* you at least 5 times a day ( who would have thought right lol ) give it a try today at work, you may be lucky enough to have an extra long weekend 🙊😜
