The clothes that debut during Fashion Week are total works of art, but the hair and makeup looks seen on the runways are what really steal our beauty-loving hearts. The spring 2016 runways from the Paris, Milan, London and New York Fashion Weeks delivered a wide range of beauty inspirations for both classic and rebellious girls this season. Here, we break down the biggest hair trends from the shows for spring that you need to try now.
Accessories are the main attractions this spring, and we don’t mean shoes or bags. From basic black bands and scraps of fabric to gilded barrettes and floral corsages, hair accessories ran the gamut this season. The thread that tied them all together: the ease with which these adornments were slipped into strands. And don't feel they have to be saved for evening - this season's accessories are designed to go with everything. Haphazardly twist lengths around a jeweled hairpin for a fresh-from-a-convertible feel. Polish off a low ponytail by tying a ribbon loosely around the base for an unfussy-yet-glamorous finish. Pin a bright floral corsage into the side of your hair. Temper boyish outwear with sweet tiaras, or weave gold thread through your classic updo. Set all your hair accessory looks with your favorite Schwarzkopf styliste ULTIME Hairspray to make your look last.
From loose, swept-back buns to sleek ballerina-like buns, buns are back in a big way for spring. An ultra-chic look we saw on the runways for spring came in the form of a double knot, which you can easily recreate at home. First, you need to create a lot of texture in the hair by applying Schwarzkopf styliste ULTIME Biotin+ Volume Mousse at the hairline, before blowing your hair dry. Then backcomb the middle section from hairline to crown. Next, using a 1-inch barrel curling iron, loosely curl random pieces of your hair so that it doesn't slip out of the style, and pull it back using your hands. Holding your hair in a low ponytail, split it into two pieces and tie the hair in one knot followed by a second knot, and then pin it into place. No hair spray is needed to finish, as pieces fall out, this look only gets sexier.
Slick strands, or the wet look isn't going anywhere anytime soon, as evidenced on the spring 2016 runways, many of which showcased sleek, sexy styles. Get it by wetting your hair and adding Schwarzkopf styliste ULTIME Crystal Shine Polishing Pomade from roots to tips. Then, use your fingers to pull it back into a low ponytail and secure it with a clear elastic. If your hair is on the curlier side, be sure to straighten it before slicking it back.
Like many seasons before this one, braids are happening in all forms this spring. From downtown-bad girl, to uptown-good girl, there is a braid for everyone. Try a modern take with one of this season’s most popular, a cool-girl headband braid. Make a center part on the left side of your head. Then, Dutch braid your hair, continuing to braid along your hairline around to the back of your head. Stop at the nape of your neck and then put the rest of your hair in a low pony. Finish with your favorite Schwarzkopf styliste ULTIME hairspray to keep the style in place and to add a touch of wispiness.
