The Moodyhair blog is news all about the latest and greatest hair products, tools, trends and techniques for both him and her in the industry.
This Autumn/Winter the trends spilling out from all the Fashion Weeks are definitely themes of retro glam and voluminous
hair. Bee Hive buns, up do’s and high ponytails showed a big 60‘s influence, with soft, loose texture giving it a modern edge. Big hair was everywhere from John Paul Gaultier, Marc Jacobs,
Julien McDonald and especially from the French Queen of Knits who started to debut in the ’60’s Sonia Rykiel. So if you have shoulder length or below hair then this season is for you. Start thinking soft, modern bee hives and high crown, high loose ponytails and back combed, quiffed up fringes. Remember, it’s about high hair, but most of all a soft, tousled texture, so it’s not trying too hard to be perfect. Soft finishing hairsprays are your best friend right now, try our humidity protection hair sprays from Redken like Fashion Work 12 and Quick Dry 18 at £12.00. For medium length hair you can still go big and wide, maybe not every day, but great for treats and nights out. You can come in anytime for an expert blow dry service with any stylist. If you want to try it yourself, start by drying your roots upside down, especially the crown and sides, then use a round brush to really add fullness and turn those ends under. Add a little gentle backbrushing to add texture and lift, don’t over do it though. Take a thick section on the crown and gently brush down from the middle to the base about two or three times, the same at the side areas, use your hairspray to add a little pliability to soft hair. Remember, it’s about disheveled chic, so don’t worry about perfect. Don’t think because you have short hair you have to miss out. Use your hair spray and brush to tease some volume into your crown, then very gently sweep the front and fringe from a
low side parting and gently back brush the top layers to add that hazy texture.
