An easy and inexpensive way to transform your look from season to season is a new hairstyle. This season’s catwalks have combined timeless classics with cutting edge style, offering a cut to suit every face shape. This year, three main styles have emerged for a fashionable winter look.
Bangs are a definite trend for the winter season. A simple way to transform a look, bangs are stylish and the many ways of having them cut mean they suit almost every face shape. Blunt bangs are very in style this season, complementing both short and long hair, but particularly short cuts and bobs. If you prefer a less dramatic look, try side-swept bangs or wispy bangs which hang naturally and are easy to maintain.
For hair with attitude, slick is the way to go. Seen predominately on the younger set and designed to expose the facial features, the slicked back look is proving popular.
2010 saw slicked back hair hit the catwalks with a wet look dominating winter. The hairstyle for this season mixes slicked backed hair across the top of the head with a textured length. The style also works well on shorter hairstyles, offering volume to the overall look.
To achieve the look, slick your hair back with gel and your fingers or a wide-tooth comb which will give the look texture. Leave the back and ends loose.
The bob is back in trend and a definite hit amongst celebrities and fashion-followers alike. Whilst the straight bob is very popular, if you are not a big fan then the wavy or curly versions are also on the money for the winter. The bob is can be a timeless classic or cutting edge and caters to every face shape.
Round faces should wear a longer bob and minimize volume on either side of the head. Long faces should be wearing chin-length or shorter bobs and can be layered to increase volume. Women with angular-shaped faces should choose softer bob styles with curving lines that can be created with razor cutting.
