IF LOOKS COULD THRILL
Top styles for the season
Yeah, we can’t have enough of bobs. Done with curls? Then it’s time to go sleeky straight. Perfect for the metropolitan office-goer, the look screams sophisticated fashion. But mind you, this is high maintenance — random grown-out strands or skipping the serum just won’t do.
Let your stylist go snip, snip, snip this season for a haircut that’s high on style but low on maintenance. Don’t shy away if you have some messy curls, just straighten out the fringe with a flat iron and let the curls be for a cute, ultra-modern bob.
Introducing the fire that simply refuses to go out — a perfect fringe paired with imperfect layers. A go-to style for hair blessed with some serious volume, locks cascading down to the shoulders are not just envy-inspiring but pretty easy to get too. A quick blow-dry and a shine spray may be all you need.
There are some who think a short crop is too outrageous but long hair is too drab. There are others who would love some serious length but the hair just doesn’t grow. For both groups, we suggest a midi — simple and stylish. Just keep it well conditioned and you’re set.
If you don’t mind a few eyeballs turning your way and some serious attention, go for this one. A rebellious take on the bob, get some razored edges to frame your face and throw in a splash of colour on the fringe. Wow!
One time or the other, you have pulled your hair into a puff — I’d place a bet on that unless you have a pixie cut. Generally preferred by long-haired beauties, puffs give an impression of volume and frame your face in a stylishly easy way. Keep at it.
I think they discovered the ponytail during stone age, so its only fair to the classic style that you add a touch of newness to it. Pull your fringe into a side-swept, face-framing look. A little puff at the crown should do good, too.
This is as easy as it gets — after a bit of backcombing at the crown, pull your hair to a side into a ponytail. We are not looking at a sleek look here, so let the few fly-aways be to add a messed-up look. A dash of texturising spray will finish off the style.
If you have dared to chop ’em off, opt for the bed head style to complete the devil-may-care look. A few outgrown strands don’t matter. Ruffle up your crop with some volumising mousse and — nothing. Just that.
Perfectly apt for Rapunzels before stepping out into the downpour, a top knot is not just easy and stylish at the same time but will also minimise the amount of rainwater that reaches your tresses. Plus it will turn all the attention to your glowing face. A win-win situation, isn’t it?
The difference that simply gathering your hair to a side can make is just amazing! Picture this — flowing, golden-brown curls on one side with an off-shoulder dress and red lips. This is the stuff fairytales are made of. Unless you look above and decide to go for it.
Is it the most common style around? Yes. Are we done with it? No way! Waves and layers are here to stay for good. A few streaks of colour here and there and done. Good to go with any outfit, any season, any place.
