5 Hair-spirations for Fall

It’s easy to get a little bored of your everyday hairstyle, especially when you wake up with a really bad hair day.Introducing the five styles to try out now. From a good old fashioned French braid to a more colourful approach to dip-dyeing, there is something for everyone — even if some are best saved for the weekends.

Plait It
Messy back-combed plaits, ponytail plaits, tiny braids, cornrows, inside braids… you name it, designers were all over it. It is the failsafe, chic, yet sophisticated way to turn a bad hair day into a good one! Keep it loose with a few strands shaping the face for a look that’s effortless and on point.

Band of Jewels
If you thought Blair Waldorf was the queen of hairbands on the Upper East Side, you’ve seen nothing yet! Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi and Prada all gave their grown-up nod towards the headband, with leather and bejewelled bands all coming into play. Wear with your hair pulled back into a loose but chic ponytail for utter perfection.

In Knots
The winter alternative to the messy waves is a chic top knot — from French It girl-buns at Isabel Marant, to messy up-dos at Armani, and forward gravity-defying top knots at Marc Jacobs. For a look that’s well put-together and polished, pair with a smokey eye and lashings of mascara.

Colour Me In
Welcome to rise of ‘My Little Pony Hair’, where you can experiment with whatever shade of pastel you prefer and bring it all back to the art of fashion. With Cara, Georgia May Jagger and Soo Joo Park all spotted with colourful locks, it’s clearly one to try this Fall!

The Girl of Luxury
The ‘rich girl’ blowdry took the catwalks by storm this season, thanks to the likes of Rochas, Thakoon and Balmain all sporting the luxurious expensive-looking ‘do. Pamper yourself with a hair mask, double dose of hair washing, blow-dry and finish with a hair fixer. Alternatively, book yourself into a salon appointment now.
