Slick and soaking wet-looking hairstyles were all over the spring 2012 runways as the above photos from the Victoria Beckham, Prabal Gurung and BCBG shows prove. And although most of us won’t necessarily start emulating these styles exactly — or the more dramatic ones where hair is left hanging and looks totally wet — we will likely wear a sleek ponytail or bun this spring. They’re two go-to styles that take only minutes to do.
Edward Tricomi of the Warren-Tricomi salons agrees that a sleek bun for spring is just the ticket and recommends to “… simply pull your hair back into a low chignon and [secure] it with either bobby pins for a daytime look or a more embellished accessory for evening.” He even suggests using conditioner instead of gel to create your sleek finish. That way, “hair is being protected and treated at the same time,” he says. If your hair feels dry or looks dull, this is a great way to bring it back to life without compromising your style. I’m all for it.
