The Spring 2013 collections debuted a bevy of artful styles on the runways, but there were a few in particular that are guaranteed to be a man event! Here, the top trends straight from the catwalk!
The runways of New York, London and Paris all had one thing in common (aside from some pretty amazing fashions): some seriously sexy hair! While there were so many styles that made an impact, three in particular are bound to be big hits, say the pros from L’Oréal Professionnel.
This season’s bold updos command attention with stylists sculpting twists, knots and braids. Backstage at ISSA, L’Oréal Professionnel Session Stylist Malcolm Edwards
created dramatic couture-coiled hair. With a tight ponytail as a base, he teased and curled sections before twisting them into his masterpieces. For Temperley, Edwards’ young, flirty version involved brushed-out pin curls spilling over a topknot. L’Oréal Professionnel Artist Amit Abraham chose two fishtail braid ponytails, which were woven together into a rectangle at Bibhu Mohapatra,—a futuristic twist to an otherwise classic low bun.
Cool girl effortlessness was the ‘it’ style. At Anthony Vaccarello, L’Oréal Professionnel Stylist Anthony Turner created slightly ruffled, bedhead texture inspired by the women of Paris. It was achieved by blow-drying volume into the roots and setting face-framing sections into rollers. L’Oréal Professionnel Lead Stylist Odile Gilbert took her girls out of bed and into the city for Alexis Mabille—she used shine oil on the roots and a curling iron throughout to create imperfect waves reminiscent of being caught in a surprise rain shower. At Houghton, L’Oréal Professionnel Artist Laura Polko used a bit of mousse before creating soft waves that were more beachy than city. A deconstructed knot was the look at Maison Martin Margiela; L’Oréal Professionnel Lead Stylist Paul Hanlon tied two uneven sections together and secured with elastic.
The classic style can be tweaked to represent different personalities—and different eras. Sweet, young, feminine—the low ponies at Alice + Olivia were reminiscent of iconic 1950’s styles. To achieve the desired throwback effect, L’Oréal Professionnel Artist Benjamin Mohapi created clean parts in both the center and on the side, and used a large barrel curling iron to fashion a uniform curl at the tails’ ends. From the 50’s to the 80’s, ponytails at Timo Weiland were playful with an edge. Inspired by street style of 1980’s New York City, L’Oréal Professionnel Artist Joseph DiMaggio criss-crossed hair at the crown before pulling it all back into a tight ponytail, which was then crimped for texture.
