New York Fashion Week: Run Way Looks

Posted on: February 15, 2013

We love Fashion Week, and are always going through images of what was gracing the catwalks and with London Fashion Week starting today we thought it would be a good opportunity to look back over the New York Fashion week just gone at hair trends on the catwalk. There are four main looks going on Grunge, Romantic, Retro and Up-dos/Ponytails and we’ll show you just how to recreate these looks yourself using Sleek Hair with no fuss!

RETRO

RETRO

So this season Retro hair was all the range, from beehives to victory curls to 1940’s waves. Beehives were shown on many a catwalk, ranging from the big and bold to the more understated and modern. This look requires a hell of a lot of backcombing and boosting. Our Hair Couture Monofilament Wigs can stand up to all the styling required for such a daring look. Pair one up with a Swirl Bunny to add some boost and you’ll be a 60’s Diva in no time!

We also saw a lot of 1940s-esque bobs, with volume and really soft curls. These are usually about jaw length, with a really deep slightly quaffed side parting and one or two very loose curls. To recreate this look you can use our Fashion 101 Ellie Wig. It’s super straight and has the perfect length but is also made from tongable synthetic so you can add the curls and they will have a long lasting hold.

Lastly go for a 1920’s feel like at the Carolina Herrera show with accessories and details! The wide width headbands on the models with low pulled back hair really gave the whole look a retro feel. It’s also all in the details! Small braids at the side of your head, or small victory rolls will give you that old time look but with a slightly more modern twist! Go all Downton Abbey on everyone, we assume this is why this trend is so hot right now!

GRUNGE

GRUNGE

Ah Grunge, it’s gone from dirty teenagers and 20 something’s in the 1990’s trying to rebel to a catwalk staple trend that has stuck around for nearly two seasons now. We admit that it’s not to everyone’s taste but here at Sleek we feel you should always be trying something new and there’s nothing wrong with roughing it up and going a bit punk to chop and change from all the glamour. The secret here is grunge is long hair, worn down and messy and with a wet look. You want bed-head! We suggest going for wigs like our Chloe or Retro, for the wet look sort of curl you can style up to be grunge. Brush it all back, pin it a little and away you go. What could be easier?

To add a bit of punk to your grunge we suggest jumping on and getting some funk in your fringe. Adding texture and height to a short style can really make it funky and fresh with very little effort.  We’d go for the Retro Wig Fashion wig again here, because the curls already add structure, it’s up to you how far you want to go with your extreme hair.

PONYDO

PONYTAIL/UP-DO

Now we’ve been talking about the virtues of a good ponytail here at Sleek for what seems like an eternity and once again they have shown up all over NYFW. Generally they are low ponytails, worn just at the nape of the neck and are long and straight and sophisticated. A long, sleek ponytail really goes well with a classy ensemble for a work party or a more formal night out. Go for something in our EZ Ponytail range like the Slick Pony or perhaps the Euro Long, to get the dead straight hair and the long length.

We’ve grouped up-dos in with the ponytails since they really all start life as a ponytail! We saw a lot of buns on the catwalk, again worn low at the nape of the neck and a lot of romantic and messy up-dos held up with plaits and bobby pins. Using the EZ Ponytail as a base you can add items like the Swirl Bunny, to help boost a bun or a Braided Head Band to add detail and a soft look and really make your up-dos look special.

ROMANCE

ROMANCE

We’re not just saying romance is a trend because Valentine’s Day just passed us by (we hope you had a great one by the way!) but soft, ethereal sorts of hairstyles are really on trend at the moment. We love the fact that there are short, really fluffy, curly looks going on. Remember these are not polished so let tendrils free if you pull up the hair so they frame your face and also go creative with the accessories. A lot of the time all you need are a few grips to create some shape, but braids, headbands, silk scarves and flowers are all great.

To get this look we suggest our Spotlight Beauty Lace Wig or for some serious luxury and smoothness our Moroccan Weave in our Remy Touch Choice range. Our Remy Touch Choice is a mixture of Remy and Human hair that has all been fortified with nutritional oils so you get the softest, silkiest touch and hair that really feels and looks like your natural hair. Remy hair is the highest quality, most natural and most durable hair that money can buy and our Remy Touch Choice range offers a more affordable way to have fabulous Remy hair.

Hi, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering
if you get a lot of spam comments? If so how do you stop it, any plugin or anything you can advise?
