Calgary Fashion Jobs – Fall 2011 Hair Trends

Talking trends in furs, dots, lace and colour – now it’s on to the mane event. Check out our favourite hair-raising looks for Fall 2011.

Pony Up

The ponytail may be your go-to hairstyle, but the catwalk calls for a sleek presentation. Go high, low or experiment with variations a la Prada. Finish your look by wrapping the base with your locks, as seen at Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton.

Fall is about decadence, so accessorize accordingly. Embellish your ‘do with sparkly baubles, floral barrettes and metal pins. Plumes remain pretty, but look for deeper tones and fuller feathers to suit the season (Gucci designer Frida Giannini approves). Just be sure to streamline with a single focal point to avoid looking like a grade school disaster.

Make it Mod

The mod look is on point right now, so make your mane follow suit. Think big! Volumize your locks and finish with soft waves to channel the sassy models at Anna Sui. Feeling brave? Make like Twiggy and go bold with a sharp cut and voluminous shape. Bottega Veneta saw the retro bouffant look of the mod years, but we like how
stars like Rihanna and Zooey Deschanel have worn them – half up, a subtle pouf and big volume.
