TOP 10 HAIR LOOKS FOR SPRING 2011
Thursday, October 14th, 2010
Well, boys and girls, it’s that time of year again; the show season just concluded, and I’m already itching to reveal my favorite runway looks. Although Spring 2011′s hair and makeup looks left me a little disappointed, I discovered 10 that I loved—most of which are wearable, all of which are definitely inspiring.
1. Basket-woven pigtails at Alexander McQueen. Simply amazing. Although this look took a lot of time, and even more hair weave, it was innovative and captivating—a perfect look to top off Sarah Burton’s debut collection.
2. Pretty, brushed-out curls at Sonia Rykiel. Soft, fluffy and totally wearable, this is the look you want for spring. Time to bust out the old hot rollers!
3. Big and frizzy at Limi Feu. “The bigger the hair, the closer to God” is more than a statement we cherish here at Corridor40, it’s a lifestyle.
4. Sleek, all the way to the back, at Versace. The wet look is a big trend for Spring 2011. Versace added a little pizazz with the addition of black plastic wrapped around a classic chignon.
5. Textured and voluminous at Dolce & Gabbana. This loose-and-messy look is a constant source of inspiration for me as a hairstylist and a go-to for event hair. It says, “You may think I spent a lot of time on my hair, when all I really did was wake up and pin a few pieces back. Yes, that’s how cool I am.”
6. Side-parted sleek-to-big hair at Maurizio Pecoraro. Some of the models’ hair was finished with a back ponytail, while others got the side pony treatment. This is another go-to evening look that is easy to recreate.
7. Long, straight and sleek, with a center part, at Roberto Cavalli. If you were a fan of Marcia Brady’s luscious locks, you are in luck. Among the many ’70s-inspired looks this season, the hair at Cavalli was spot-on—and represented a rare instance in which big hair wasn’t better. For a more true-to-runway look, add some clip-in extensions
8. Getting wet at Bottega Veneta. Sporting a center part and their own natural texture, the models’ looks were the epitome of the spring/summer season. Appear as though you are just returning from the pool/beach/lake/country club (whatever your fancy).
9. Old Hollywood glamor at Louis Vuitton. The hair’s twisting and rolling started in the front and continued to the back. Major! I can almost guarantee this look will be seen on some starlet on the red carpet.
10. Futuristic sci-fi warriors at Givenchy. There were three hair looks for this show—however, only two made my cut. I loved the center-parted, slightly-finger-waved hair that loosely moved into braids, and the no-nonsense, classic Vidal Sassoon-meets-Spock look the short-haired models wore. Ladies sporting both looks appeared ready to kick some ass.
