Over the past three days, long-term sponsors of Vauxhall Fashion Scout, Toni & Guy, have worked their magic, sculpting a diverse selection of hair looks to compliment the Spring/Summer 13 collections of VFS designers.
Already, strong hair trends are emerging. Centre partings appear a leading trend. Catwalk shows from Phoebe English, Raffaele Ascione, Yifang Wan and Timur Kur (to name a few) displayed symmetrical, definite centre partings for both loose and tied up hair.
Playful up-dos inspired from past eras, ranging from the 1920s, 50s, and 60s were also rife amongst Spring/Summer 13 collections. With Miuccia Prada creating costumes for Baz Lurhmann’s film adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby due to hit our screens next year, it is certain that the style of the roaring twenties is set to conquest next year. Toni & Guy stylists pre-empt this trend for the Spijkers en Spijkers show by working a “twisted-Gatsby” look. Teased waves were drawn back into a half ponytail/half chignon and finished with a string-thin 20s hairband. Endless backcombing took place for a 50s feel at Fam Irvoll and a sixties inspired Bardot-look was created for the Ekaterina Kukhareva show.
To stay ahead, keep partings central and embrace tied up styles with a retro edge.
