CHRISTIAN DIOR Hair Trends
The location was an enchanted garden for the Dior Haute Couture presentation for Spring/Summer 2013 designed by Raf Simons it was full of the kind of exquisite hand-stitched floral gowns you might expect. The Hair Trend was gelled down Pixie Crops – with iridescent Swarovski crystals placed over hot orange, pink, purple and red lipstick for the new 3D glamour lip.
CHANEL Hair ideas
Karl Lagerfeld chose the gardens of the Rodin museum in Paris to create a catwalk so luxurious it was the perfect backdrop to showcase his Spring/Summer haute couture collection. As ever, Chanel’s haute couture incorporated some of fashion week’s most dramatic styling with a vaguely Gothic fantasy encapsulating two up and coming beauty trends – the messy hair up-style with feathered headpieces and dramatic dark smoky eyes that added a romantic feel to the show.
VALENTINO Spring & Summer Hair
Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli have successfully melded 19th century-inspired designs and vintage fabrics with Valentino’s signature love of glamour. This was certainly the stand out show of the week, with intricate embroidery and crystal beading somehow blending Renaissance aesthetic values with those of the Sixties. The hair and make-up direction was as elegant as the couture clothing with simple center parts and scraped back hair buns completing the look.
IRIS VAN HERPEN Hair Trends
Canadian singer Grimes provided the soundtrack for Iris Van Herpen’s electrifying haute couture show in Paris. The Dutch designer created a 3D collection of dresses inspired by electricity with a Science Fiction feel, moving away from the more traditional methods of dress making Iris Van Herpen’s collection was all built from a high-tech flexible material and with origami inspired Marcel waves created hair styles to match this futuristic collection it was certainly the talk of Paris couture week.
JEAN PAUL GAULTIER Spring Summer Hair Collection
Jean Paul Gaultier couture collection had a taste of India with gypsy silhouettes, sari wrapping and micro pleats. A collection that exploded into vivid colour: saffron and iris, cinnamon and gold. The hair ideas for 2013 were a rebellious Elizabethan beehive up do accompanied with fish tail plait, fusing classic with rock as Jean Paul Gaultier does so well, this amazing up do was stretched up and pulled out. Faux face studs and rock chic winged smoky eye make up completed the Jean Paul Gaultier vision.
