Hair today... Gone tomorrow

So a closer look at the hottest of hair dos from S/S'13 and I’m suddenly completely conscious of my top-knot which has become a bit of a uniform style for me whilst travelling.  There is only so much I can accomplish in a plane washroom mirror but I’m drooling after these chic looks from the runways and vow to attempt them once I am back in a constant time-zone and within the vicinity of my tools!

Marc Jacobs
This season, the runways offered us quite a variety of trends up top.  Whether you’re a no-fuss kind of gal or an OTT sort, there is something for you.

First up… the modern minimalist.  This, I’m afraid, I can only lust after as no amount of hair-spray will tame my curls into such sleek performance as was sported on the catwalks.  The rules for this look are ‘strict and sleek’.  Hair is scraped back into low buns or pony tails and bold partings reign.

It’s time to draw the line ladies!  Adopt a severe middle parting as seen at Givenchy or play with geometric partings as seen at Gainfranco Ferre or just a super deep part, seen at Chloe.  Whether it’s a complete comb-over or sleeked-back version, this look is all about being angular, superflat, neat, sharp and at times quite futuristic.  Although the look at Stella McCartney was more low key and easy… so distinctively Stella.

On the opposite side of the spectrum are the 60s inspired looks.  Yes, this is all about the typical volume but this is 60s like you’ve never seen it before and the characteristic beehives and bobs are injected with newness especially via hair accessories!  Armani and Vuitton, Fendi and Marc Jacobs all stood for gallant accessories from bows and veils to even orchids seen at Issa.

No doubt that these fab looks will be over before I’ve invested in my superhold hairspray, but I will definitely be embracing them for now…
