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

Balenciaga at Paris Fashion Week: Guido created a soft half up look accented by a metal hair accessory. This look is super chic and easy to recreate at home. 

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 Loose knot with pearl accent

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!

Our Best Hair Color Tips for Spring

Enjoy Spring & LOVE Your Hair with these Easy Hair Color Tips!

Spring is a perfect opportunity to brighten up your look with a little hair color. Whether you’re going on the lighter side, by adding highlights, or getting bold with a hot new color, it’s always in style to keep your hair bright and shiny. With the right hair care routine, you can embrace beautiful color and still enjoy healthy, vibrant hair.

Lighten Up

Spring can often inspire blondes to go blonder, or brunettes to embrace shades of caramel, cocoa, or other soft highlights. But with lighter color, can often come extra damage. To keep your hair healthy, it’s important to do weekly conditioning treatments. To protect from damage from color, be sure to find a conditioner that’s rich in protein to help rebuild hair structure. For best results, apply conditioner on towel dried hair; hit it with the blowdryer for thirty seconds and wrap in a towel; rinse with cool water after 10 to 15 minutes.

Brighten Up

This spring, vibrant hair color is a definite hit. But nothing is worse than when your bright, beautiful color turns dull and drab after a few washes. Be sure to keep color bright by paying closer attention to your hair washing routine. When shampooing hair, try to keep the water cooler, as hot water opens the cuticle and causes color to wash out more quickly. Also, using color protect shampoo and conditioner is a definite must! If you have all-over bright color, you can try a color enhancing shampoo, that actually deposits color back into your hair while you wash.

Freshen Up

If you’re soaking up spring at the beach or pool, you’re skin may be glowing, but you may notice your hair color looking duller. Freshen up your color with a glaze to add shine. You can opt for a glaze with color, to enhance your natural locks, or go for a subtle change of color (add a hint of cherry to dark brown hair), a clear glaze is another option just to add shine. Ask your hairstylist about the benefits of a glaze–and you may get hooked even after spring is over. (Redken Shades EQ; Paul Mitchell PM Shines)

Change it Up

If your blonde is taking on a shade of gold, or your once honey colored locks are looking drab, a toner is a great option to make blonde hair look healthier and richer. It’s amazing how a subtle tonal change can turn a dull complexion into radiant skin. The best part? A toner can be done at the shampoo bowl in 15 minutes or less! Consult with your stylist on whether a toner is the right option for your hair.

Beautiful, vibrant hair isn’t just for hair models and celebrities. Your hair can be healthy, bold, and shiny with just a few extras in your beauty arsenal. Enjoy spring, and love your hair with these easy tips for healthy hair and beautiful hair color.

Confirmation, Hairstyles Affect Your Self Esteem

Long Shiny wavy red hair

Scientific confirmation, Hairstyles affect your self-esteem . . . Duhh!

I really get a kick out of these scientists who give us confirmation of the obvious and then try to make you think they have made some kind of breakthrough? Well here is a classic example. All the while I was reading this press release I kept looking for the punch line. I thought for sure this was satire.

Women figured this out while living in the caves and this guy makes it sound like it didn’t exist until his study confirmed that hairstyles affect your self-esteem.

What was interesting and a bit surprising was how young it all starts. Yes, he is right, we should be teaching our young girls good hair care techniques and strategies very early on. Don’t you wish your mom had spent more time teaching you how to have great a looking hair style?

Pediatrician Writes Rx for Self Esteem in GirlsAs controversy mounts as to whether or not school age girls are being over medicated, one Chicago area pediatrician writes a prescription that parents will surely rush to fill.Chicago, IL (PRWEB) May 5th — As controversy mounts as to whether or not school age children are being over medicated, one Chicago area pediatrician writes a prescription that parents will surely rush to fill. Of Corn Silk and Black Braids ($17.95 11x11in. hardback, ISBN 0-9657033-2-0) tells the tale of a young girl entangled with issues of self-esteem and at the root of her problem she finds — hairstyles.So what is the connection between a girl’s hairstyle and their self-esteem? Author Vincent L. Johnson M.D. answers girls, like adults, can show signs of increased self-doubt and intensified social insecurities when they are unhappy with their appearance. Dr. Johnson further explains, So called bad hair days can turn into unpleasant days in general due to low self perception.

Of Corn Silk and Black Braids aims to help girls overcome negative self-image by teaching them to find pride in their appearance, appreciate their differences, and above all, discover beauty within.
