I’m already looking forward to spring, but not because I’m craving sunshine. I’m more interested in fully embracing the hair and makeup trends that the creative geniuses behind the scenes at fashion week have dreamt up for us. Spring looks are always my faves because even straight off the runway they’re more wearable and often prettier than their fall counterparts.
One of the hairstyles I’m loving for spring 2012 is the clipped deep side part seen at the Sonia Rykiel show. It’s easy to pull off and effortlessly gorgeous. Here, hair maestro Guido, Redken Creative Consultant, shares how to get this “1940s meets 1970s, very flirty and pretty” look:
Step 1: Start by applying a blow dry lotion like Redken Satinwear 02 Ultimate Blow-Dry Lotion, $16.50 to damp hair.
Step 2: Blow dry your hair with a round brush lifting the roots away from your scalp to add volume.
Step 3: Once your hair is dry, create a deep side part and mist your hair with a heat protecting spray like Redken Hot Sets 22 Thermal Setting Mist, $14.99.
Step 4: Using a one-inch curling iron, curl your hair section by section.
Step 5: Brush out the curls gently to smooth them out and spritz with hairspray for hold. Finish by securing the hair opposite your part with a flat clip.
Which spring trends are you excited to show off come March 20th?
