Simple, straight, glossy hair will always be chic. But tweak it with a modern edge—like slicking back the crown hair—and you’re ready for Fall 2014 says superstar stylist, Jonathan Colombini. “We’re going to see a lot of contrast in hair this season, and combining something loose with something tightly slicked back is a perfect example of simple but sophisticated.”
The trick: A strong, straight blowout, and a wide barrette to keep crown hair in place.
The product to get you there: Joico’s Heat Set Blow Dry Perfecting Creme amps up the luster.
An off-center pony is no stranger to the runway; but the updated versions that headlined some of fashion-week’s most exciting shows for fall had a decidedly Euro influence, explains superstar stylist, Jonathan Colombini. With hair swept deeply to the side, and crown hair given that perfect pouf, this asymmetrical staple is reminiscent of a 60’s Sixties French film star…a little sexy, a little messy, a little ladylike all at once.
The trick: Teasing crown hair before gathering to the side, then adding an easy-to-use “bungee” elastic to keep the pony in place.
You’ve got to hand it to a hairdo that’s just as hot now as it was in the carefree 70’s; which is precisely why everyone’s hailing the messy tresses unleashed on the Proenza Schouler runways recently. According to superstar stylist, Jonathan Colombini, it’s the perfect carefree ‘do…undone and even better a day or two after your shampoo.
The trick: Take a break from the suds and use your hands to “mess” your tresses.
The product to get you there: Joico’s Texture Boost Dry Spray Wax to give hair sexy dimension and pliability.
What do designers Carolina Herrera, Diane Von Furstenberg, and Rachel Zoe have in common? They all sent models down the runway recently in utterly romantic, uber-approachable French braids. We’re not talking the tightly coiffed variety…but rather, easy, breezy, messy plaits that are intentionally imperfect and so simple to wear, says superstar stylist, Jonathan Colombini.
The trick: Don’t worry about pieces that go astray—in fact, pull a few strands loose to nail the carefree look.
The product to get you there: Flip Turn Volumizing Finishing Spray—the spray-it-from-any-direction styler that hits every spot with texture and body.
When a pony’s on the menu, there’s nothing wrong with having your part on the side–and we mean really on the side. That’s how designer Reed Krakoff’s runway models were styled this season to plenty of appreciative applause, explains superstar stylist, Jonathan Colombini, who claims the coif has a two-in-one appeal that’s uniquely now. “An uber-side part pairs with a traditional ponytail in a very tame way; but then we add a few flyaway strands at the hairline, and you have something a little wilder-looking,” he explains.
The trick: Always start the style with sleekly blow-dried hair to keep things neat and tidy.
The product to get you there: Joico’s Heat Set Blow Dry Perfecting Creme offers heat protection up to 450 degrees; plus, it layers easily with other styling products for the ultimate, weightless coif such as IronClad Thermal Protectant Spray, which eliminates frizz and static for up to 72 hours. How’s that for neat?
