As well-groomed sleek chic takes over the makeup trends for Autumn/Winter, hairstyles are closely following suit with flyaway messy styles being rapidly replaced with well-groomed glossy blowouts and chignons. Wave goodbye to waves and embrace all things smooth with the following on-trend AW15 updos.
Ooh la la!
For well-groomed sophistication, there’s no better place to look for inspiration than France, which is why classy Parisian chignons were all over the AW15 catwalks. For the easiest way to achieve this simple and pretty updo, start by securing your hair in a low ponytail. Twist the ponytail until it starts winding around itself into a knot. Secure with bobby pins and you’ll be red carpet-ready in no time. For the most up-to-date take on the look, swap romantic flyaway tendrils for a smooth and slicked-back base – applying a little Wella Professionals Flowing Form Smoothing Balm will help you get it right.
If a fancy twisted updo just isn’t your style, a sleek ponytail might be the ‘do for you. Spotted at hundreds of AW15 shows, all the ponytails had two things in common: a tie at the nape of the neck and smoothed back hair at the crown. Go over hair with straighteners then spritz all over with a smoothing formula like L’Oreal Professionnel Tecni Art Fix Anti Frizz Spray for the straightest and sleekest style.
Tie the Knot
If well-groomed power hairdressing just isn’t for you then don’t worry. The fashion world is still as enamoured with the humble top knot as it ever was, making this cool-girl go-to style on trend once more. One of the easiest Autumn/Winter trends to master, the top knot looks better the quicker and messier you put it together. Tip your head upside down and spray it all over with a volumising formula such as Goldwell DualSenses Ultra Volume Leave-In Boost Spray then gather all your hair on top of your head in a messy not. Finish off with a strong holding hairspray like TIGI Catwalk Your Highness Firm Hold Hairspray to keep your knot in place and it should last all day.
