Fresh off the catwalks from Fashion Week, hair trends were the talk of the town for SS17. Braids, The Low Pony Tail and Sleek and Smooth were featured on and off the catwalks as designers Victoria Beckham, Alice & Olivia and Lanvin showcased their latest looks. Limoz Logli explains how to create catwalks styles.
The Low Pony Tail:
The elegant low ponytail ruled the runway, repeatedly seen held back with black ribbon or simple hair ties. Limoz says, ‘Why not give your ponytail a bit of edge, by using a soft leather belt to secure around your hair tie; letting the belt end hang loose next to your ponytail. Remember to keep pony tail at the nape of the neck. It’s what makes this style feel modern.’
Braids are here to stay for SS17. One length hair suits braids best and this is a very easy way to get an effortless undone feel. Limoz says, ‘Dampen the hair to give it a slightly airy appearance blow-dry or leave to dry naturally. Tease the hair near the roots to add texture and volume. Part your hair down the centre, and then working on one section at a time create an inverted fishtail braid. Leave a small side section of your hair out of the braid and tong it to give the whole look a really textural look. I recommend using Ouai Texturising Hair Spray to hold the braid in place’.
Sleek and Smooth:
Slick and Sleek stole the shows this season. To replicate the looks seen on Victoria Beckham models, Limoz says,
’Apply a styling mousse onto wet hair, this will ensure the cuticles remain smooth when you apply heat. Create a clean centre parting with a pintail comb and always aim your hair dryer down towards the ends of the hair using a non-
ceramic bristle brush. For unruly hair run your straighteners gently through the length of the hair. Use a finishing spray to create a glossy look. To finish off Limoz recommends neatly tucking the hair behind the ears and use a finishing crème such as Oribe Supershine Moisturizing Cream to make sure it stays smoothed to your scalp all day.’
