So we all know that metallics are in fashion right? (You better be nodding your head) - but what we all may not know is how to carry it off as part of our everyday look. *Surprise surprise* in some offices, it is in fact inappropriate to wear shiny silver trousers.
ABOVE: MODELS at the JASON WU show last year rocking some ‘golden locks’.So here is a little idea to get you thinking outside the box when it comes to all things gold and silver this season.It began as a micro trend last year - but this winter, its certainly back to make an impact.
How to get the Look:
You can add this trend to all sorts of hair styles, all you literally need to do is to paint it on - no hair dye, just a bit of gel and glitter.
All you need to do is get your hands on some coloured gel - what colour totally depends on the colour you want the glitter in your hair to be, so if you want gold get some gold hair gel, if you want to be daring get some red… I’m sure you understand.
Your then going to need to get some matching glitter that you can mix into the gel and sprinkle on top… so again the colour of the glitter you want totally depends on the your personal colour preference.
You then need to style your hair - shove it up in a top knot, tie it in a plait… the choices are endless.
Mix in some glitter with the gel, and then paint it onto your styled hair wherever you want it.
Sprinkle on some more glitter over the top of the gel to get the finished look.
Although Jason Wu used coloured gel - I personally think it would look just as good, if not better with clear gel… and multicoloured glitter?!
Originally it was much to my disbelief that green hair, is in fact at its height in fashion. Yes, I said it. Green hair currently seems to be very on trend. Thanks to the eccentric celebrities who are Nicki Minaj and Lady Gaga. Granted, green hair was around before they decided to dye their barnets, but they are the one’s who seem to have brought it into the spotlight this year.
I was shocked to discover such news, but as the nosey blogger I am, I went on to ‘investigate’ the look further. Here are a few snazzy photographs I have discovered from random tumblr blogs on the net.
After looking at these photographs … I realised that green hair didn’t have to mean an all over, grass green hair do. Please don’t get me wrong because an all over grass green hair do is absolutely fine - if that’s what your into. I like to think of myself as slightly edgy… but I don’t think I personally really have the ability to go that wild with my hair.
I realised that with the colour green, comes turquoise, blue and numerous other varieties of the shade. Rather mermaid - Esq if you ask me.
Dying my hair green would be something I would have to think about twice, but having thought a little on the matter - I do now think that the look is very appealing.
What do you think?
What is the craziest colour you would ever dare to dye your hair?
Is green hair to stay or to go?
As you (should) all know - I. LOVE. TOP KNOTS.
In my ideal world girls everywhere would be rocking top knots with vibrant lip colours to match. To help anyone who would like to learn how to rock this look - I found this great video on YouTube. I love it, I hope you will too.
Feel free to photo reply if you think your TOP KNOT is worthy…
Amongst the frivolous array of hair & beauty trends this season - I noticed a new one that seems to have returned with vengeance from the 90s. Ill say it once: HAIR CRIMPING. There are only about two reactions you could have to that statement.
The first would be utter horror. Shocked that the frizzed, crimped, afro like mop you flaunted in the 90s could actually be at its return. If this is your reaction - then your probably imagining something like this right now:
TAKE. DEEP. BREATHS. Im only joking - though some of you may have pictured a nightmare, makeup explosions are’nt in this fall. Thank God. But hair crimping can actually be quite fashionable - and canactually be easy to pull off, considering you dont go crimp crazy and crimp in moderation.
Anyway, onto the next reaction. Those of you who didnt react with horror - could possibly be jumping around in your seats whilst making a mouse like sound. If this is your reaction, then firstly… take a breather girl. Secondly, you will understand that crimping can be cool. A few examples would be:
Rebecca Taylor LFW FALL 2011:
Cynthia Rowley Fall 2010:
As you see above - you can achieve different looks with crimping. If you want to really make an impact then go crimp crazy like Topshop. If you’d rather a more understated look then go for the crimped pony tail as seen by Cynthia Rowley. Or if your just not sure then go for a Tyra Banks style crimp that’s not too ‘in your face’ and take a band with you… then make the decision while your out !
So get your crimp on… give it a try - and reap in the compliments, nods and applauses. Because if you crimp your hair this season then you’ll definitely be runway worthy.
A subject that has taken up quite a lot of my thoughts recently has been my hair. I simply do not know what to do with it. Ive regrown it into my natural colour (chestnut brown) so it is all in quite good condition - if I do say so myself. The only problem really is that I find it a bit bland. So what to do?
Ive dyed my hair nearly every colour of the rainbow… but have never ventured for orange / ginger / auburn - never ventured on purpose* should that be!
With this in mind, I’m swaying between the idea of turning fiery for winter!
This is the kind of colour I want:
Trust Florence to get it right! Its not too orange, not to red (a colour that really does seem to be everywhere this summer) and I think its plain enough to suit my pale complexion without looking boring. I think this would look quite funky.
I also like this colour:
Now I realise they are both actually quite different shades of ginger - but I like them both.
I can tell I’m going to have to continue with my deep thoughts about this dilemma. If you have any suggestions PLEASE comment and let me know!
