Trend alert: super deep side part. To copy, choose which side you want your part to fall on and follow the imaginary line from the end of that eyebrow up toward your hairline. Use a rattail or teasing comb.
Ah, the ponytail. Remember when it was your cop-out look for days when you just didn’t want to deal with your hair? Now more than ever, though, ponytails are transitioning from frumpy to fantastic. The possibilities of how to style this go-to updo are just about endless. See 20 ways to take your ponytails to even greater heights.
Fall 2012 Hair Trends
In: Straight waves
Out: Beachy waves
Every year there’s a new adjective to describe wavy hair: beachy, bouncy, bedhead. This year is no exception — except the adjective doesn’t start with a “b.” Pantene celebrity stylist Tippi Shorter is calling this year’s trend “straight waves.” “It’s uniform and polished, but lies flatter — it’s less of a curl,” she says.
To get the look, Shorter suggests using a spray gel on damp hair and then sleeping in three or four big braids. “Whether your hair is naturally straight or curly, this will change the texture into waves,” she says. “And if you’re in a rush, you can always blow dry the braids.” Once you’ve taken your braids out, use a 1-inch curling iron to define each of the sections even more.
Looking to change up your look, but not quite ready to chop all your hair off yet? Try bangs! The right style on your face shape can make your eyes pop, show off your amazing cheekbones, and even help hide any forehead problems.
Trend alert: the long bob aka the lob it leaves you with enough hair to change up your look, but not so much that styling becomes a chore.
Here’s a great link to the hair color trends of 2012.
Call it a comeback? I think so. Katie Holmes is looking fantastic with her long locks and blunt bangs. Also making a comeback is pin straight hair.
Products: Kerastase’s new Cristalliste line promises to make long, fine hair thick and shiny, while Suave’s Keratin Infusion Smooth & Shine Serum ($5) protects hair from intense heat and fights humidity to prevent frizz. Unless, miraculously, your hair is flyaway free, you’re going to need a shine spray post-heat. Bumble and bumble’s Shine On (And On) ($26) is one of the lightest (still hold the bottle at least six inches away from your hair) and Biosilk’s Shine On Shine On ($12), which is actually infused with silk, helps repair split ends. Your hair might not end up Olsen-perfect on the first try, but you’re off to a good start!
