    Hairstyle trend for fall


    Hair powder to be a fall hairstyle trend

    This week hubby and I watched the four hour TV saga Elizabeth I, they must have used a spent a sizable portion of the budget for the movie with hairdressers.

    “looks like it might become a fashion trend this fall”

    The entire movie was filled with dozens of those also a sixteenth century beehive type hairstyles that required hours and hours of labor to produce. Hair powder became a useful technique to make a style last. These elaborate hairstyles required that the style be kept in place for sometimes longer than a week without shampooing in between.

    Hair powder absorbs oil, therefore by using hair powder in their hair women were able to avoid that oily hair look that can occur after just a few days without shampooing. A fashion trend evolved and it was considered a unclean not to have hair powder in a hairstyle. In fact even your wigs had to have a hair powdered look.

    To this day if you walk into a court room in the UK you will see the judges and barristers wearing powdered wigs. Now, the hair care product manufacturers here in the United States think they have something new. As you can see in this article from Coutorture.

    But before I ran out and bought a brand new pricey hair care product, I would use what my grandmother used and that is plain old cornstarch, it will perform the same function as any expensive hair care powder product. Apparently I might have to do just that, it looks like it might become a fashion trend this fall.

    I don’t know about you but I will draw the line at the beehive look.

    Fall Trend Watch: Hair Powder

    Apply hair powder at the roots and work into the hair until the powder is completely dissolved. Allow the powder to dry completely, and then brush through the hair to help spread the powder to the ends of the hair and remove any excess. At that point, style the hair or tease roots for lasting body and style.
