Princess hair is trending: how to use bejewelled accessories to get the look
The latest hair trend is all about channeling your inner fairy tale heroine - but this is no damsel in distress, she's got an edgy side
THE TREND: PRINCESS HAIR
There has been a return to all things soft and feminine on the runway this season as hues become more muted, skin coverage becomes sheer and garments are light enough to be swept up with the slightest breeze. Similarly, hair takes its inspiration from princess stereotypes as seen at the shows of Simone Rocha and Givenchy.
The hair took on a more grown-up approach with models adorned in bejewelled headbands and headdresses resembling toughened-up crowns that artfully weaved in vintage charm with feathers, pearls, embroidered patchwork and satin fabrics.
With the focus on accessories mixed and layered into hair, locks are either painstakingly sleek and pulled back into a low pony, or softened up with lightweight, wispy textures framing the face.
HOW TO GET THE LOOK
TRESemmé celebrity hairstylist Ursula Stephen shares some tips:
- Skip the intricate looks that are solely for the runway and opt for the simpler styles such as side-swept low ponytails, braids or bouffants.
- Adding a hair accessory to a simple ponytail or top knot will definitely make a statement. At the moment headbands have made a comeback. And pearl clips,bows, scarves, logos/words clips, jewelled barrettes and regular bobbypins continue to be all the rage.
