Besides coveted knitwear and tailored coats, the fall/winter 2010 runways had us itching to test out the minimal makeup looks and totally doable hairstyles, including messy, perfectly imperfect bed head. From Marc Jacobs to Lela Rose, lots of models sported mussed-up tresses that will pair beautifully with this season's effortlessly chic pieces.
To help you master this hair trend without looking like you lost a pillow fight, we tracked down the stylists behind the hottest catwalk creations:
Down and Kinda Dirty
Marc Jacobs wanted his fall show to channel real women (aka gals who prefer to wash and go). No wonder every fashionista loves him! "There’s been a calming feeling in the atmosphere this year -- something saying that natural hair can be sexy and beautiful," says Redken Creative Consultant Guido, who created easy, breezy looks for the fashion designer.
To deviate from the highly stylized hair and makeup of past seasons, he developed a dry, textured 'do. First, the models' tresses were trimmed to a mid-length (below the collarbone, but above the bustline). Although you don't have to lop off your locks to get the look, it helps if you have layers to start. Spritz Redken's Wax Blast 10 High Impact Finishing Spray-Wax ($17 at Redken) onto your shampooed hair, roughly dry and head out the door!
Style tip: Borrow a trick from the runway and tuck a few of your strands into a collar or under a scarf for that morning-after-the-party finish.
Inspired by the urban surfer girl, Frederic Fekkai’s Didier Malige created slept-in, tousled waves at the Proenza Schouler show. To achieve the relaxed and cool texture, prep with Fekkai Coiff Bouffant Lifting & Texturizing Spray Gel, which adds height at the roots. Then, spritz your hair with Fekkai Coiff Oceanique Tousled Wave Spray and finish with Fekkai Coiff Magnifique Ultra-Light Finishing Crème to keep the ends piece-y and defined. Talk about an endless summer!
Products are $23 each and are available at Frederic Fekkai salons, department stores and on Fekkai.
Tousled and Twisted
For the Lela Rose show, celeb stylist Ted Gibson whipped up a French twist, um, with a twist. To copy the modern take on this classic style, use Ted's Build It Blow Drying Agent and Fix It Gel ($19.99 each at Target), then back-comb your hair to add texture and blow it out. Twist from side to top rather than bottom to top and finish with his Beautiful Hold Hairspray ($19.99 at Target). The slightly roughed-up sophisticated look is a little Mad Men secretary, post after-work cocktails.
